Check the Apply During Import pane's settings in the Import window (if you have the window minimized, expand to the full window with all the settings).
Lightroom can automatically apply a preset upon import, and it sounds like that's what's happening to you. You may have accidentally got it set to something that's causing the weird processing.

There is nice third-party add-on from Google called Nik. It was paid but they released it free. It cooperates nicely with Photoshop and Lightroom.

There are several film presets as well as possibility to do ...
If you're not afraid of command line, it's explained on https://redmine.darktable.org/projects/users/wiki/Manual_exportimport_of_styles_presets_and_masks
The core of it is:
Export from old context
The default settings are so called because they are what the designers of the camera selected to be the standard settings for your camera. Short of writing your own firmware revision for the camera there is no way for you to alter a default setting and then have the camera return to that setting when you do a default reset.
Let me see if I can put this to bed, though it is not a terribly satisfactory answer.
A Lightroom preset is a collection of settings, so once applied, the preset itself is not needed (by lightroom) to render the image. That is in contrast to something like a camera profile - the profile is used each time the image is rendered, so if you have a custom ...
From the website help it looks like these match my first guess: names of camera makers.
C = Canon
F = Fujifilm
L = Leica
N = Nikon
O = Olympus
S = Sony
... and are you sure that last SO isn't SC for "Standard Cameras"?
No. There is currently no such standard. The closest thing is Lightroom sidecar XMP files as a defacto standard. These aren't exactly human-readable (because they're XML rather than the simple key-value format you propose), but at least they're text. And they're not standardized, but some other programs (like Darktable) can at least attempt to interpret them....
FYI, this article from Adobe documents the file location of these presets:
Installed and custom presets and templates have filenames ending in
.lrtemplate and are located in folders under the Users/[user
Another link (for LR4, but I presume this also holds true for LR3) confirms that "factory" or built-in ...
There is a solution provided by Jeffrey Friedl and his awesome Lightroom plugin "Data Explorer".
download and install the plugin
select all the images, which have different canon styles applied, you want to process. the free version of the plugin is limited to handling a maximum of 500 images at once. Edit > Select all
run the data explorer. File > Plug-in ...
I think the answer is no.
You can change the starting number when you export, but it still assumes you're exporting a contiguous sequence of images. In your case, I get the feeling you might export the 5th, 7th and 10th to 15th images, in which case, even if you pick 5 as the starting number you'll get 5, 6, 7, ....
I don't think 'position in a collection'...
One of darktable's little quirks is that it stores module presets in the library database, the same one that is otherwise primarily used for storing data about the image files and how they've been processed. A few users have complained about this on the mailing list, but AFAIK it's still working this way in 2.x versions. This makes it difficult to backup and ...
You should also check the "Apply auto tone adjustments" checkbox on the Presets tab of the Preferences dialog that may be in play here. If that is checked, I don't think you get the option to reset the images in the Develop module afterwards.
My preference personally is to leave the checkbox unchecked and then choose to apply the Auto-Tone Develop preset in ...
It's entirely a product of Contrast through the use of Curves (or Levels).
Raise your black point in the curve (RGB curve).
Then lower the white point in the curve (RGB curve):
Then change to one of the individual channel curves and alter the black point slightly to put color into the shadow. For example your second image has a Yellow tint on the ...
A lot has to do with how the "presets" are written and at what stage in the imaging processing pipeline they act upon the image. There can be a wide variation from one "preset" to the next. "Presets" are merely someone else's list of settings applied in a certain order determined by them when they recorded the preset.
"Presets" usually assume that the ...
Well, a literal answer would be that you could use darktable's embedded Lua scripting to apply a style to each image after import, possibly first checking the image information for camera model...
However, a more typical method would be to create auto-applied presets in each of the modules that you want to enable/disable. If you hover over the name of a ...
There's no way I know of to apply a preset with it not re-zeroing the adjustments, as they are all based off of a zero setting. However there is an easier way to do what you are doing without leaving lightroom.
Create an Export Preset with the following settings:
Export To: Same folder as original photo
Check "Add to This Catalog"
Mostly it is about color temperature, white balance (they're not the exact same thing), contrast, and then using an HSL/HSV/HSB (Hue-Saturation-Luminance/Value/Brightness) tool to mute some colors, shift the hues of other colors, and emphasize other colors.
In LR you could identify the images you want a given preset applied to... i.e. select all of the images with a red truck and give them the red color label. And create a smart collection that pulls all of the images where the label color = red; plus any additional rule you see fitting. Then select the smart collection and apply your preset to all of the ...
I also wanted to know how to save a preset that I create myself so that I can share it?
I'd advise you read Adobe's docs.
I was wondering if there was a hub or general resources with these sort of presets which are readily available for download?
Let me Google that for you.
Using a lens profile corrects very little distortion. for example perspective distortion stays in the picture. I think you want the profile to detect the lens used but keep the distortion and correct the vignetting.
In Lens Correction, Profile tab > Enable Profile corrections but adjust the Distortion setting to zero.
Click on the Manual tab and set ...
The problem is that the tools don't function the same way, and there isn't a 1-to-1 mapping of LR tools to darktable tools. Your converter could approximate the settings from LR modules, but I don't think you'll ever get 1-to-1 conversion.
Any of those sliders being at non-zero directly after importing indeed indicates that you may be (accidentally) applying a development preset to your photos. That is issue one.
Should you solve that one, there is issue two. As you open a photo after import, the preview will first look as intended, meaning exactly the same as you saw on your camera's LCD. ...
It looks to me like this is achieved by partially desaturating all the colors except the reds. I don't recall the name of the tool in Lightroom, but here's a tool where you can choose to boost or turn down the saturation or lightness of any one of 8 hues. (In Aperture, it's the "Color" filter.)
In Photoshop you could do it with the Hue/Saturation ...
You have the U1 and U2 modes on the mode dial where you can set your own settings. Once you have the camera configured the way you like go into the menu and register your settings. There may be more information on page 55 of your manual.
The problem with doing what you want in Lightroom is that for the most part Adobe products ignore the maker notes section of the EXIF metadata. In fact, if you convert a Canon .cr2 file to .dng, the maker notes are stripped from the file. The maker notes section is where the picture style and most other in camera settings at the time the photo was taken is ...
