hello! I recently added a custom camera profile to test out some settings in Lightroom CC. But now I want to delete that profile, is there a way to do so?

Right-click on the profile. That should give you a contextual menu with one of the options to delete it.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I tried but it only shows "Reset Hidden Profiles" option. Maybe I need to delete from the folder? Where are camera profiles located for Lightroom CC?

Interesting. I can do it for some (e.g. those in custom named sets), but not for others. Let me switch this to a bug.

This link might help. (Spoiler alert: It didn't work for me.)

The profiles that show up for RAW files cannot be found at any of these locations.

I did do a search and found that the profiles that I am seeing are DCP files that were imported from the CC sync.

A search in Win Explorer yielded this:

C:\Users\[USER NAME]\AppData\Local\Adobe\Lightroom CC\Data\3a344dd2bb6f4adf81915bbae616ff62\cr_cameraprofiles


I just tested and deleting the DCP profiles from the directory removes them from Lightroom CC.

Hopefully, this syncs back with the CC servers and deletes them.

Now I am debating on whether or not it's worth trying to import the VSCO presets since they decided to discontinue support of them.

I have the same problem, I use xrite color checker that creates profiles. When I go to delete profiles by right clicking it does not give me delete.

Same for me – can't delete custom profiles and can't find where they are on disk.
