White balance for IR photography.

While somewhat "niche", it is annoying that Adobe products don't support a more expanded white balance that would include IR images.  Even with a custom white balance set in camera, Adobe products don't support the more extreme white balances required for IR photography.  Having to import RAW files into Nikon Capture NX-D and then convert them to TIFF before importing into LR is not optimal from either storage or workflow perspectives.  Please consider a fix to this.

The solution is to use a custom DNG profile for white balance as outlined in the article DP HOME has posted in this thread.
