That shorter list you show inside LR is for JPGs, so you’re viewing a JPG. Most lens profiles are for raw files.
Secondly, you cannot add a user-created/downloaded/third-party lens profile to LR’s internal list. You have to put it into a special location under your Users folder. That way it’ll be there when you uninstall LR, or if Photoshop needs it.
This page shows where that special location is:
Oh~ Yes!!! thanks for your help. Now I can see the LONG list inside LR.
However, I still can't see the new "Samyang 14mm f2.8" lens profile in the list, although I put the LCP file under my "User folder > Library...." folder and "LR > Resources...." folder.
Could you tell me what can I do?
What is the full path of where you put the .lcp file?
I don't see anything about user lens or camera profiles on that Adobe Help page.
Sorry my bad, should have put.
Your custom Camera Raw & Lens Profiles should be installed to the User folders…
Lightroom 5 no longer uses the shared ProgramData (Windows) / Application Support (Mac) folders for Camera or Lens Profiles. Instead, it stores the built-in profiles with its program files.
When you create camera or lens profiles, they must be stored in the user locations listed below. If you previously stored custom profiles in other locations, you’ll need to move them to these user folders, otherwise Lightroom won’t be able to find them.
Windows—C: \ Users \ [your username] \ AppData \ Roaming \ Adobe \ CameraRaw \ CameraProfiles \
Mac—Macintosh HD / Users / [your username] / Library / Application Support / Adobe / CameraRaw / CameraProfiles /
For the lens profiles, substitute the LensProfiles folder for the CameraProfiles folder.
The camera and lens profile file extensions are:
.dcpr—camera profile recipe file used for creating/editing a profile in the DNG Profile Editor
This information was in the LightroomQueen link I provided, above.
Thanks for your help, ssprengel.
According to your reference webpage, I put the .lcp file into:
/Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0
(coz, inside OS10.9.5, "Library" folder isn't under the [User] folder)
Then, I also try to put the same .lcp file into:
/Applications/Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.app/Contents/Resources/LensProfiles/1.0
And restart the LR, but still can't show the new lens profile items in the list.
