X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Plugin Adobe Lightroom 3

Thanks to one of our readers here this is a revision of a previous post we made called Lightroom Plugin for ColorChecker Passport. There is a slight difference in the screen appearances when the File>Export path is used in Lightroom 3 to get to the plugin.
In Lightroom 3 when selecting File>Export the first screen that appears shows the options for exports of processed files. A drop down menu at the top of the page is defaulted to the option “Hard Drive.” When that drop down menu is accessed the option “X-Rite Preset” appears. Selecting this option opens the ColorChecker Passport plugin allowing you to name your profile as well as opening the option to produce a dual illuminant profile if two images are selected in Lightroom.
Make sure that you open the stand alone software that comes with ColorChecker Passport so that you can be certain you’re using the latest version of both the software and the plugin. As we previously reported, there are enhancements in the latest version of the software for image detection and exposure variation.
