For Lightroom Classic, I downloaded the updates yesterday but didn't examine it...

This is the link to the Adobe update info.

I don't 'do' profiles or presets, I feel if I have two separate images so similar that they might benefit from the same processing, I dump one.  To me every image has to be different and individual.  Maybe if you photograph weddings every week then they might have a use?

Many people might find it useful to make some Presets and Profiles of their own.

I never use Adobe's Camera Profiles but build my own (for each camera body and for many different illuminant sources as well) using x-Rite's ColorChecker Passport and its attendant software.

I also have created a number of my own ACR Presets which may handle just a single aspect such as Sharpening. Each Sharpening Preset produces a specific variety of sharpening with individual Presets for Portraits, Landscapes, Metal or Fur&Feather etc..

I normally shoot multiple frames of a situation and, by using my personal Presets on a selected bunch of frames, I can speed-up processing enormously.

Using batch processing in ACR, coupled with applying my own Presets selectively; I can usually reckon on being able to process at least 1,000 RAW files in a day.

I routinely Process every image I shoot, and star-rate them as I go, (unless it is obviously a dud which I mark as "Delete" in ACR itself) .

I back-up and store all of my processed NEFs (including their attendant metadata) and only select and re-open particular .nefs when I need to do specialised editing and retouching in Ps or to format them for Publishing purposes.

(I very seldom use Lr CC Classic because I much prefer to use Bridge-hosted ACR, but both Lr and ACR do this in a similar manner.)

I find profiles useful and I often copy adjustments from an image to a set of images in LR. In event photography as well as in the studio I find the consistency of visual appearance important. Images are often presented together and in such cases I don't want the look to vary from image to image, only the content.

Interesting, I strive to make each image different!  Both subject matter and style.  I am constantly searching for 'something different'.
