New Adobe Color Profiles for Lightroom

I just watched this video about Adobe’s updated colour profiles, and it’s a really interesting update for Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop users!

I’m editing some photos from a morning jaunt with our kids and our new puppy in the park, and I like the new options. I hadn’t thought about colour profiles before, and now that I’ve experimented with them, I enjoy using them.

Here’s an introduction from Adobe:

100 Lightroom presets and nothing looks good

I usually use a selection of VSCO Lightroom presets when I edit my photos.

Today is turning out to be one of those rare days when none of my presets look vaguely appealing. It’s very frustrating. No matter what I use, the previews don’t come close to what I’m aiming for.

Fortunately the more natural look is working for me today. Still, this is clearly one of those days when using shortcuts like presets just isn’t working out for me …

Anyone using @Lightroom to manage photo libraries?

Is anyone using Lightroom to manage a photo library? I’ve been using Picasa but I am considering switching my habit to Lightroom to manage my libraries (I already using Lightroom for all my photo editing).

Memories

I need to be able to manage photos on multiple drives which preferably update dynamically (I know I can also do an import to refresh the folders). I’d also like to upload easily to Picasa (I use Picasa for online photo storage), Flickr and Facebook. I know about some plugins that do that but any recommendations would be great.

I’m pretty sure this is possible but I’m interested in your experiences if you are using Lightroom like this.
