Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic CC 7.2 and earlier

Important: Versions 7.2 and earlier of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic do not support the newer .xmp profiles. Therefore, to use Lutify.me LUTs in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic 7.2 and earlier you must use the .icc profiles integration from your package. This integration has functionality limitations due to the nature of the way .icc profiles are implemented in Lightroom. As such, we strongly recommend that you upgrade your version of Lightroom to enjoy the benefits of the new .xmp profiles integration which offers a better, faster and more simplified experience. We consider the .icc integration as legacy and obsolete.

If you absolutely must use version 7.2 and earlier of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic, please follow the instructions in this section to learn how to install the Lutify.me LUTs. The installation procedure depends on the operating system you are using. Please follow the instructions relevant to your operating system.

MacOS

  1. Close Lightroom if it is open.
  2. Navigate to the folder Lightroom 7.2 and Earlier in your package.
  3. Copy the ICC profiles only (without their enclosing folders) from your package into the following location on your hard drive:
    Users > [Your Username] > Library > ColorSync > Profiles
    Note:
    Do not copy the enclosing folders of the ICC profiles from your package. Instead copy the ICC profiles themselves only. Eventually you would have all the ICC profiles from your package in one big list without any sub-folders inside the following path:
    Users > [Your Username] > Library > ColorSync > Profiles
  4. Please note: In most cases, user’s Library folder will be hidden by default. To copy files into this location you’ll first have to access to Library folder. The easiest way to access the Library folder is by clicking on the following menu options in Finder:
    Finder > Go > Go to Folder…

    In the window that opens please type: ~/Library/ and click Go. If you can’t find the ~ sign on your keyboard simply copy and paste this text into the Go to the folder window:
