Lens Profiles in Lightroom 3

Jul 20, 2011 8:18 PM

I've created a lens profile for the Olympus E-P2 M.9-18mm F4.0-5.6 lens using the Adobe Lens Profile Creator. I used RAW files converted to DNG. However, I cannot figure out where to put the profile so that Lightroom recognizes it. Initially, I saved the profile to the default location chosen by the Profile Creator, but this didn't work, though Photoshop finds it with no difficulty. Can anyone help?

    The lens profiles created using raw DNG can only be used for raw images in LR/ACR. If you can see the profiles in PS, then the profile location is correct.

    Hi, did you find out how to use the lens profile in Lightroom. I have the same problem using a Leica camera.

    Thanks

    I'm using Windows 7 64x so I can't comment on a Mac but suspect the same applies. Two downloaded profiles were stored in a default user location - the same place that Lens Profile Creator would file it but the default location for Lightroom profiles was the shared profiles location.  I simply copied the only two profiles across from user location to the shared location After a relaunch Lightroom placed them at the bottom of my list.

     

    See http://www.computer-darkroom.com/blog/lens-correction-profiles/

     

    Quoted below

    User profiles location:

    • Mac OSX: /Users/(User Name)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0
    • Windows 7 or Vista: C:\User\(User Name)\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0
    • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\(User Name)\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0

    orShared profiles location:

    • Mac OSX: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0
    • Windows 7 or Vista: C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0
    • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0
