Use the AppData path for custom or downloaded profiles.
Adobe uses the system locations for the built-in camera and lens profiles - so don't touch them.
You need to quit and re-start Lightroom for them to show up.
thanks for your quick answer.
I put the custom dcr-files now in the following folder, but they are not listed when I start lightroom again:
Any idea, why it didn't works - or do you mean another folder path in your reply above?
It would normally be something like
C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles\Your Named profile
There is normally only a dat file in the Camera Profiles foleder unless you have added others.
You’re putting the wrong files in the right place…under Users, that is.
You should be creating .dcp files, which are the DNG Camera Profile files. .dcr files are DNG Camera Recipe files which are adjustments to a profile but not a new profile.
I'm be honest there is a misunderstanding, maybe on my side.
But the shown profile in LR should have at least the same file name as in the windows explorer, or not?
LR's menu uses the internal name of the profile and Explorer shows its file name - the two are not always the same.
Ah ok, that's it. Thanks
The profile FILE names contain the camera model in case you have the same profile "Camera Standard" or "Adobe Standard" in the same folder for multiple cameras.
Within the raw converter a photo can only be from one camera so there's no need to include the camera name in what is shown in the Calibration area.
