Adobe lens profiles for Camera Raw, Photoshop CS5, Lightroom 3
Posted By: knoxploration, 08-30-2010, 11:31 PM

Photographers using current versions of Adobe software including Camera Raw 6.1 or later, Photoshop CS5, and Photoshop Lightroom 3 all have a useful tool at their disposal, which can correct for geometric distortion (both barrel and pincushion), chromatic aberration, and lens vignetting -- all with a minimum of fuss. The feature relies on lens profiles, which can be created by the user community. (Adobe themselves also provide a modest number of lens profiles.)

The process of creating a lens profile has been designed to be relatively straightforward, and is achieved using a free Lens Profile Creator tool available from Adobe Labs. (Full instructions are available from Adobe in their Lens Profile Creator Calibration Chart Shooting Quick Start Guide, as well as the full Calibration Chart Shooting Guide, and are beyond the scope of this article.)

While the highest-quality corrections are likely to be achieved with a profile created using your specific camera model (and indeed, your specific lens units so as to cancel out sample variations), very acceptable results can be achieved with profiles created by your fellow photographers -- even if the precise camera model differs. Profiles are specific to either Raw or developed (JPEG, etc.) files, since developed files may already have lens corrections applied to them by the camera or other processing software.

And so, the purpose of this article: to help Pentax photographers share their lens profiles, and to summarize the available profiles. Following at the end of this post is a list of known profiles for first-party and third-party lenses on Pentax camera bodies.

If you have created a profile you'd like to share, or know of somebody who has shared a profile that isn't on our list, please either contact me privately to let me know, or simply reply to this article. I'll do my best to keep the first post in the thread updated with links to the latest profiles. (If you could let me know if I have your permission to add the profile directly as an attachment to this post, that'd be helpful. So would any information on how the profile was created -- body, focal lengths, apertures used, focus distances, and whether the profile is for Raw or developed images. If you know of profiles on other sites, please don't upload somebody else's profile here without their permission -- either provide a link to the site, ask them to join and share the profile here themselves, or both.)

Even if a profile already exists, don't feel shy about submitting your own alternative profile. There's a lot of leeway in profile creation, such as for example the number of focal lengths, apertures, etc. that are included in each specific profile. Adobe's software is designed to interpolate (read: guess) how lens characteristics vary between these user-defined sample points, and so profile creation is a balance between the accuracy of the profile, and the work involved in its creation. Lens sample variation also plays a part, and so do personal user tastes. It's possible that many users may find your alternate profile more to their tastes than an already existing one... :-)

(Note: For now, I've not had a moment to ask for permission from anybody to share their profiles as attachments directly in this article, so for the time being this list consists solely of links to other posts where profiles have been shared.)

Without any further ado, following are the profiles themselves:

(Edit: Still to do: Tidy up the formatting, add info on where to put the profiles for different apps / operating systems, include direct links to zipped attachments and request permission from profile authors to re-upload their profiles where they're not already zipped. *Phew!*) ;-)

Thanks, Christine. I've updated all your earlier links to use the new attachments. I've also added the FA J 18-35 to the list, as you'd not uploaded that one previously.
Probably because I forgot to "save" the project file when creating that one

Hah! Don't feel bad, it was an easy mistake. You've done a great thing with the number of profiles you've shared here, and I'm sure quite a few of your fellow Pentaxians will appreciate your hard work...

I have created a profile for my DA 12-24 F4 ED AL [IF] using my K10D.

The Arch E 36x48 chart w/ 15x23 checks (144pt) was used.
Images were shot in RAW @ 12, 15, 18, 19 (i was trying to do 20), and 24mm @ f/4, f/5.6, and f/8 (also f/11 @ 12mm).
Focus distance was adjusted for each FL, from ~4ft to ~8.5ft.
I enabled all corrections for the profile: vignetting, CA, and Geometric.

I hope to make profiles for the K 55/1.8 and K 28/3.5 soon as well.

Just a quick update for those paying attention to this thread. Adobe just released Lens Profile Creator prerelease 3, and for the first time it now includes a lens profile downloader function. (Yes, that might eventually negate the need for this thread, but until we see it issued as a final release, and discover whether it's integrated into Lightroom / Photoshop themselves, I will continue to maintain the thread nonetheless.)

No other changes disclosed in the new release. You can get it here:

Thanks for the heads up. Have you tried it yet?

I wish there were a similar sharing utility for camera profiles (even though it probably wouldn't increase the chances of coming across a K100D profile...).

That'll be cool. I have the K 55/1.8. A special lens, isn't it?

Yeah, its one of the few that i felt like holding onto as i reduced my collection. It would be great on FF, but its a great focal length on APS-C as well.

I submitted my profile to adobe, so we'll see whether it shows up in the downloader at some point.

From the official Lens Profile Creator FAQ:

-----
Where should I place my LCP file so that I can use it in ACR and the Photoshop Lens Correction plug in?
You can place the lens profiles under a user specific or a shared all user location.

User profiles location:
Mac OSX: /Users/(User Name)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0

Windows 7 or Vista: C:\User\(User Name)\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\(User Name)\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0
Shared profiles location:
Mac OSX: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0

Windows 7 or Vista: C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0

Lightroom will pick them up from the same place as Photoshop would, so you'd use the same locations as above. Hope that helps!

Glad to help.

By the way, folks, Adobe just released Lightroom 3.3, Camera Raw 6.3, and DNG Profile Converter 6.3, and there's a nice surprise for Pentaxians -- fourteen new official lens profiles made in cooperation with Pentax. Guess they've been listening to our hopes and wishes, eh? ;-)

Edit: I've now updated the first post to include all 14 new profiles. Some we already had third-party profiles for, and some fill holes in our coverage for lenses that weren't previously profiles. Great stuff! Christmas came early in Pentax-land. ;-)
