    No camera profiles for D90 and D80 files in ACR 8.3?

    Phrynosoma2

      Hello,

       

      I recently bought in to Adobe's Creative Cloud and downloaded the latest version of Photoshop and ACR. I love the new process and everything about the new Photoshop, however, when I went to re-edit some older images taken with a Nikon D80 and D90, there were no profiles to be found under the camera calibration tab. What gives? My only option for D90 files is "ACR 4.6" and "ACR 4.4 and 3.6" for the D80 files. Where are all the rest? What am I missing? What's strange is that they are all there in Lightroom. I hate Lightroom, though, and would prefer to continue working within ACR if possible.

       

      Thanks a ton for any insight.

          Just to be clear, can you open the D80 nef files in ACR 8.3?   Is the D80 a DSLR or a Bridge camera?  If a DSLR if you set the camera to Nikon, can you find the lens you were using in the second drop down list?

            Trevor, those are DSLRs

            phrynosoma2, are those images RAW, or JPEG. The very same images have a profile in LR?

            What process are you using?

              Do you have the rights to the folder where the profiles are stored?

              see: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/930036

              "C:/Program Data/Adobe/Camera Raw/Camera Profiles/Camera/(maker and model). Program Data is by default a hidden directory, so viewing it may have to be enabled."

                I believe these profiles can also come from installing the DNG Converter 8.3, so if the profiles don't seem to exist, then try downloading and installing the DNGC 8.3 from:

                  Thanks for the replies, guys.

                   

                  I'm trying to open NEF files from both the D80 and D90. They'll open in ACR, but without the camera profiles. I checked out the folder that PECoutejoei specified, and what do you know... there are no folders for D80 and D90 files. Not sure how that could have happened, especially since those profiles are there for Lightroom.

                   

                  Any ideas as to how I could get those profiles into the ACR folder? Is it reasonable to think that I could copy them from the Lightroom folder? Do you know where I'd find that Lightroom folder?


                  Thanks again for you help.

                    Figured it out. I downloaded the DNG Converter 8.3, which seems to have put the missing folder and files into the CameraRaw folder. Still not sure how they went missing to begin with, but oh well.

                     

                    Thanks for the suggestion, ssprengel.
