I used Adobe lens profile creator to download a lens profile. I cannot find the file. It is not in the standard folder for lens profiles.
Where does lens profile creator downloads the lcp file? It says local disk?
On Mac OS X downloaded lens profiles are stored in this folder :
If it's not there check the 'Location' field in the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader app. It should show as 'Installed' and not 'Online.' Also keep in mind that there are separate raw and JPEG lens profiles. A raw lens profile will not be visible inside LR with a JPEG image and vice-versa.
It shows installed. It's a raw profile. And I am really desparate now :-). My only explanation for not fining it is, that despite pressing download and it say installed - download did not work. Anyway, thanks for your support.
Are you applying the lens profile to raw images or JPEG images?. As explained a raw lens profile will NOT be visible inside LR with JPEG image files.
If you are using raw images then you may have to "manually" select the lens profile from inside LR's Lens Corrections> Profile panel:
1) Make: Set to camera type (Canon, Nikon, etc.)
2) Model: Select the downloaded lens profile
3) Profile: (May show additional lens profiles available.)
4) Setup: Select 'Save New Lens Profile Defaults'
Downloaded lens profiles use "cryptic" alphanumeric naming. This is the type of file you will see inside the download folder:
