Creating a Personal AI Profile from Adobe Camera Raw final edits

If you usually edit your projects with Adobe Camera Raw (Photoshop or Bridge) and wish to create a Personal AI Profile with Imagen, this article is for you.

Note: You must have Lightroom Classic installed on your computer.

Step 1: Get your edited photos into Lightroom Classic.

  1. Import your project's final edited photos (the photos you want Imagen to learn your editing style from) into your Lightroom Classic catalog.
    - If you are new to Lightroom Classic, the following article will show you how to do it:

  2. Select the folder on the left "Folders" panel.
  3. Select All Photos (Cmnd + a (mac) or Ctrl + a (windows)).
  4. On the Library module -> "Metadata" menu header -> "Read Metadata from Files".
  5. Once completed, all your photos should be updated with the ACR edits.
  6. Please review the photos and double-check that they have been edited with your final edits.

Step 2: Create your Personal AI Profile in Imagen.

  1. Close Lightroom Classic.
  2. Open Imagen and begin creating your Personal AI Profile as shown here:

Troubleshooting: The photos are unedited after following 'Step 1' directions.

Adobe Camera Raw automatically creates XMP sidecar files once you finish editing your photos.
XMP is a text file with the same filename as the photo, and it contains all of the edit information.
This is how the folder containing your images should look after editing a project with ACR:


Make sure you are checking the right folder before opening the photos in ACR.
If the photos appear as edited in ACR, clicking "Done" will create the XMPs that contain the edit information, and you can retry Step 1.
If you deleted or can't locate the XMP sidecar files, unfortunately, without them, you cannot see your ACR edits in Lightroom Classic.


Going forward, we advise you to ensure they are incorporated into your photos for your next project. Once you've confirmed this, you'll have the opportunity to create your Personal AI Profile when you reach 3,000 edited photos.
