Lightroom: Unable to apply camera calibration profile via copy all setting

I have two RAW files (e.g. foo.dng, bar.dng) with identical content, the first one (i.e. foo.dng) was processed in Lightroom desktop with changing the camera profile to non-default calibration profile. The second one (i.e. bar.dng) was just imported without changing anything even the camera calibration profile.

After that, I synced these two RAW files to LR mobile iOS, and then I try to copy all setting by using long-press from the first one to the second one. I can obviously see the camera calibration profile is *not* applied on the second one.

I believe it's a serious bug especially for RAW processing. Hopefully, Adobe can fix it in next release. Thank you so much.

Lilo,

When the images sync back from Lightroom for mobile to the Lightroom for desktop do you find  that the camera profile is applied in Lightroom for desktop?

Thanks for your quick response. No, it's not applied in Lightroom for desktop after it synced back. In fact, I have the following options on camera calibration profile like

* Embedded
* // Sky Color (installed by 3rd party preset)
* // Snow Color (installed by 3rd party preset) 
* Adobe standard

I applied the "// Sky Color" on foo.dng through LR desktop, and copy all setting from foo.dng to bar.dng on LR mobile. When it synced back to LR desktop, I saw the camera calibration profile is fixed on "Embedded" instead of "// Sky Color".

I expected all camera profile even it's installed by 3rd preset should be carried to LR mobile to get consistent RAW developing result with "copy all settings".

I am going to shift this to a feature request. Currently camera profiles do not travel to the mobile environment so it is difficult to apply them. Hopefully some others will chime in and add their votes to this.

Yes, please add this feature. I use the Colorchecker Passport for color calibration, and on LR mobile right now it's a bit of a mess.
