Before you can start using Palette, you need to create a profile and set functions to your modules. In this article, we show you how to create a Lightroom profile. The steps, however, are the same for any other Adobe CC applications.

- Naming your profile
- Assigning a Lightroom function
- Assigning a keyboard shortcut
- (Recommended) Create another Lightroom Profile
To get started, you can use an already available profile as a template. Go to the bottom left corner and click on "Quick Start Profiles".
From here, navigate to the Adobe Lightroom CC folder and open any file.
To create a new profile, go to the tab bar and click the plus (+) sign.
Click on the Lightroom CC/6 icon to create a new Lightroom profile.
To give your profile a custom name, click on the core module. The core module is the one with the Lightroom icon.
Click on Screen Name and type in a custom name. Click Done at the bottom right corner to finish.
Click on a slider module to open Slider Settings. You can assign a function to the selected slider here. If you have a function in mind already, use the Search bar to look for the function.
Click Done at the bottom right corner to finish.
Click on a dial or button module to assign a keyboard shortcut. To the left, click on Keyboard mode. For dials, you can assign keyboard shortcuts to right turn, left turn and dial press. Simply click on the arrows under Keyboard mode and then press the keys to assign a keyboard shortcut.
To remember the assigned function, Set Custom Name at the bottom left corner. Click Done at the bottom right corner to finish.
We highly recommend using multiple profiles for each Adobe CC application. You can separate workflows with different profiles and/or effectively increase the number of functions per module. Simply repeat steps 2 to 5 to create another Lightroom profile.
