This is what confused me. Many people say that Olympus had some of the best skin tones, but I experienced several cases where the Adobe camera natural and Adobe portrait profiles had way more red that they should have. It could be that Adobe did a poor job creating the profiles, but that would also confuse me (it seems that a company like Adobe should be able to match a color profile).

Note that it was picture dependent and lighting dependent, but correcting white balance didn't seem to help. Switching to Adobe color profiles did help.

I suppose my issue could have been in other parts of the color management process (monitor, etc.)

i use adobe colors from camera raw but they are really no different than any of my Olympus ooc jpegs skin tones just a bit more detail.
