    Lens Profiles in Lightroom 3


      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?

          I forgot to mention, I'm running Mac OS X 10.6. Thanks.

            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.

                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.
