Adobe Profiles Missing?

I was having a hard time with finding Adobe Profiles to match with my camera as I had recently learned the importance.
I couldn't for the life of me figure out where they were!

I thought I needed to uninstall or that I had lost them somehow. Turns out that when I decide to edit an image from Lightroom in Photoshop, after I've made adjustments and saved the new image, when it goes back to Lightroom it is saved as a .tif file. 

Profiles only work on RAW files (.CR2)

I would like to suggest a pop up window that informs users of this.
Either a help bubble over the Profiles area or a pop up window that users have to check "Understood".


RAW (.CR2)

Hope this makes sense!

IMHO no notice needs to be given. This is a normal function of LR and has been this way since it came out in 2007.
Profiles are camera make/model and image type. extension, specific.
Also anytime you send a RAW file to PS it is always saved in some other image file format. Either PSD or TIF depending on the setting you, the User, has chosen in the LR preferences, External editing tab.

If you are new to using LR Classic I suggest you buy a book on how LR works and how to work with LR properly.

I suppose there’s no need for a pop-up because its known that those camera profiles work on RAW. Any other file type would have the profile you chose, baked in, along with all other RAW data. It’s like going to an Indian restaurant that serves curry and expecting to see a sign that says we don’t serve fried chicken. More info on profiles here -
