Despite the profile for a particular lens appearing in (what I presume to be) the correct places on my hard drive (see paths below), the lens profile does not appear in the drop-down within LR panel for Lens Corrections / Lens Profile. Other new Sony lenses (FE series) do show up but not ALL of them that are in either location (paths below). Weird. What am I missing?
The profile does show up in ACR 8.8. Similarly, Photoshop CC 2014.2.2 populates the profile automatically when I use Filter>Lens Correction but it just won't appear in Lightroom.
Background: CC subscriber, Lightroom 5.7.1, Win 8.1, 64-bit; I have restarted my computer and LR several times.
Profile that is not appearing: SONY (Sony FE 24-240mm F3.5-6.3 OSS) - RAW.lcp
I see it here:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.7.1\Resources\LensProfiles\1.0\Sony
The camera (Sony a7ii) also appears in the related "Camera Profile" locations and it does show up in the "Make" drop-down in LR.
Thanks for any help,
Copy the profile to this location, C:\Users\your user account\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles. It should then show up in the list.
Does LR let you manually select the lens profile? (Sometimes the EXIF data is ambiguous about the lens.)
