Note: I do not believe this question is a duplicate of "How to emulate the in-camera processing into lightroom" (I referred to this question in my question) I just want that my monochrome images stay monochrome and my colored should stay in color.
- shoot photo 1 with Picture Style "Color"
- shoot photo 2 with Picture Style "Monochrome":
On import of both raw files, I want Lightroom to automatically:
- apply Lightroom Preset "MyColor" to all photos shot with Picture Style "Color" (in this case photo 1)
- apply Preset "MyMonochrome" to all photos shot with Picture Style "Monochrome" (in this case photo 2)
If I import Raw Files into Lightroom, which where shot with the Picture Style "Monochrome", the Thumbnail list in Lightroom shows the correct monochrome Pictures, but as soon as Lightroom starts to rebuild the Thumbnails (not using the jpg sidecar file or the embedded thumbnail any more) it builds the thumbnails from the Color Image, not respecting the Monochrome Picture Style.
Of course I can import all images and auto-apply a monochrome Lightroom development setting, but I often switch between Monochrome and Color while shooting, so it would be helpful to extract the information from the raw file and apply different Lightroom presets based on it.
Does not help: I have no process option for "Monochrome".
Maybe right (that it is not possible to apply picture Canon picture styles), but I hope that one of you may have a solution or a workaround for the problem.
Tag Name: PictureStyle Value: Monochrome
So it would be a solution to import the Photos normal, then filter them by the Picture Style and manually apply a previous defined Lightroom Preset to the result.
The problem is, that Lightroom does not show this Metadata, so it can't be used for filtering.
Possible solution can be using the metadata-wrangler
