Getting a Personal AI Editing Profile completely changes the way your editing workflow works. However, building the best profile takes more than simply uploading previous examples of your work. Below you can see a list of things to keep in mind when building your perfect profile.

1. More Photos = Better Profile

While it's true a profile can be trained and created with only 2500 edited images - it's not the best course of action. We recommend using at least 5000 images for the best and most accurate results. This will expose your profile to more different scenarios, preparing it better for the future.

2. Diversify Your Training Catalogs

If you have multiple shooting styles and shoot in different and diverse conditions, with many different lighting and background variations - it's a good idea for the training catalog to reflect that.

Training your profile with a diverse catalog will prepare it to handle a variety of editing scenarios. Including images taken in different lighting conditions, indoor and outdoor, with flash, low light, and so on, will increase the profile's versatility.

3. Consistency

This profile will essentially mimic the style that you feed it. So for the editing results that it delivers to be consistent, the material that you feed it also needs to be consistent. There are two areas that you can focus on in that regard.

You need to deliver photos that have an easily readable consistent editing style across all of them. Another thing to pay attention to is using a consistent color profile across the images. It can be a standard profile, like Adobe Color or Adobe Standard, or a specific camera profile if your camera has one.

Remember, when the input is consistent, so will the output.

4. Specific or Balanced

You can most certainly do both. Having one general do-it-all profile that you apply to most shoots, shouldn't stop you from having several other specific profiles. For example, you can create an engagement profile tailored to your common engagement sessions โ€“ those that take place at sunset, with the sun still out, and in similar locations.

In Conclusion

Balance is the key to a good Personal AI Editing Profile, just like with most things in life. To have the best profile try and feed it images with different and varied lighting scenarios, backgrounds, poses, and so on. Try to strike a balance between showing it editing consistency over a variety of different images. Creating your own AI Editing Profile is a creative and nuanced process, but by following these tips you can create a winning one!
