All 4 of my lenses have correction profiles included with adobe camera raw. None of them are included in the much shorter set that comes with lightroom 3. I found the downloader on adobe's site and tried downloading some (only 3 of the 4 available) but the new ones only show up in acr, not lr3. Is there anyway to get more of them into lr3??? I highly prefer lr3 over acr for this type of work...

You're using LR3.4?

Where are you installing the new profiles?

Save the lens profiles that you have created into the specific lens profiles folder(s) that Photoshop CS5, the Camera Raw plug-in and Lightroom would be looking for them for lens corrections. Please refer to the Lens Profile Creator User Guide that documents such information.

You might be on to something here. According to this article the only two ways are (1) Adobe updates the Lightroom profiles or (2) use the Profile Creator to make your own: http://mansurovs.com/l​ightroom-3-lens-correction (external link)

I just checked and according to the Adobe Profile Downloader I have 231 Canon Raw and JPEG profiles installed, while I only counted 57 Canon profiles in Lightroom, and Windows says I have 86 Canon profiles. My guess is that Lightroom is automatically filtering the profiles according to the file format (raw or jpeg) selected.

But that doesn't make sense to me since it appears that all the lens profiles are saved to the same location. On a Windows computer its C:\ProgramData\Adobe\C​ameraRaw\LensProfiles\​1.0\Canon

Make sure the profiles that you downloaded were created for RAW files. Profiles created for JPGs will not show up in LR if you are trying to correct a RAW file.

I found this out the hard way -- thought I would save a couple of steps when I first tried to profile a lens and set the camera to record JPGs. Did the whole thing taking lots of groups of nine images at various focal lengths and apertures. Added the resulting profile to LR, opened a RAW file, and couldn't find my new lens profile in the list. :mad:

Had to start all over recording RAW, ran those files through LR to convert to DNG, ran the DNGs through the Adobe Lens Profile Creator, etc. :cool:

I'm still puzzled about two things:

1. The ALPC creates a profile named for the lens, same as the profiles supplied for LR, but when they are created it stores them in the "wrong" place so you have to go find them and move them to where LR looks for them.

2. Any profile that I have downloaded is named with a string of letters and numbers and there's no way to identify which lens it applies to just by the file name.

Ok, after closer inspection it was due to it being a jpg. I searched my library for jpegs to test the theory and was shocked to see I was actually working on one. Doing it on a cr2 brings up all the lenses I need.

Thanks for the help!
