Lens Profile in LR4 with Mac OSX 10.7.3
I have a profile I'm trying to load. It is for the Sony A77 16-50mm F2.8. I have placed the icp file in Library> Application Support> Adobe> Camera RAW> Lens Profile> 1.0> Sony folder
I only shoot in RAW and the profile says RAW. But this is weird, I removed the old profiles to the trash (except the one I need), none of which I would need but they still show up...but not the one I need. Am I in the wrong location?
Restarted LR, didn't show up in the lens correction profile window. Restarted the computer and that didn't work, what am I doing wrong? Thanks!
I don't have the answer for sure, but there is one more place you can store profiles. That is in the Library folder inside your home folder. Using your nomenclature:
Users> [home folder]> Library> Application Support> Adobe> Camera RAW> Lens Profiles> 1.0
I have a "Downloaded" folder inside that with some very oddly named profiles. I used the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader app a few times, so I'm thinking that's what put the profiles there. You could experiment with putting your profiles loose in the 1.0 folder or making a Sony folder to put them inside.
In the ALP Downloader app I see a couple of profiles for your lens and camera. That app should automatically place the profiles where Lightroom can find them. It's free on Adobe's website.
