If you find yourself switching to a preferred Camera Profile every time you edit a RAW file in Lightroom, buckle up because this quick tip is going to save you a tonne of time!

Watch and find out how to apply a default Camera Profile on Import. Plus, if you shoot with different camera bodies and prefer a different profile for each, you can override the default import preset for that model only.

If you have never heard of Camera Profiles or just need a refresher, I recommend watching this video first - Using Camera Profiles in Lightroom - Pet Photography Editing.
