    Lens Profile for Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 DX II?

    AMohr Level 1

      I am a newbie to LR and am soooo very frustrated. I am trying to correct the lens distortion on my Tokina 11-16 2.8 DX II lens that I used in combination with my Nikon D7K. When I follow the direction for LR 5.4, I noticed that the Tokina lens does not appear in my list of lens profiles - this despite the fact that Adobe says this lens does have a lens profile as of v4...




      I'm on the 30 day trial period of LR - so I am testing the softward to see if it meets my needs. So far it doesn't. Can you explain why I am unable to see or access a lens profile for the Tokina (note no Tokina option in the lens profile option shown below)?

          Problem solved.  I just learned that in order to properly use this feature of LR, you need to be working from the RAW file.  I was working for a jpeg.  I imported he RAW file and LR provides a number of lens profile options to correct for distortion - most importantly the one I needed - Tokina.
