Adobe lens profiles for Camera Raw, Photoshop CS5, Lightroom 3

Raw is better than JPG in many ways, although it takes some time to treat in Adobe Camera Raw (ACR). Lens correction in ACR has the advantage that you can also manually correct some distorsions like perspective faults.

Hi Lampo,

I first tried to download the lens profile from SayK's post above on page 6 in this thread, where he attached the lens profile which he constructed and generously shared with all of us. I put it in the same folder as you did, but could not find it in Camera Raw (I have Photoshop CS5, not Lightroom).

Then I downloaded the Lens Profile Downloader from this website:
Download Adobe Lens Profile Creator - Adobe Labs
and used it to download the lens profile, and it worked! But the lens profile was not placed in that folder, so the Downloader obviously put it somewhere else. I think that it is SayK's lens profile which Adobe has accepted as a user lens profile, and perhaps user lens profiles reside in another folder? But the main thing is that it works when you use the Lens Profile Downloader.

The Adobe Lens Profile Downloader worked fine, and now I have my lens profile for the Pentax 18-135 lens, and it works!

The thing I did wrong before was to install the lens profile manually in this folder:
C:\Users\(User Name)\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0
That folder is obviously just for the standard lens profiles, and the Adobe Lens Profile Downloader puts the user lens profile for the Pentax 18-135 lens somewhere else. But the main thing is that it works. Great!

Thank you for asking, Class A! I try to use it for RAW images, but the added lens profile is not visible, while the other lens profiles are.

One more step taken.
I managed to give the new 18-135 lens profile file the file extension LCP like the other lens profiles. I copied it to the subfolder of ProgramData where the other lens profiles reside.
But when I run ACR and try to do lens correction, then the new lens profile is still not visible.

SayK,
Thank you for your help!
Yes, the folders were hidden, and I changed that so they were visible, and I found the lens profiles in a subfolder of ProgramData. Then I copied your lens profile to that subfolder. Unfortunately your lens profile was not visible when I then tried lens correction in ACR. Perhaps this was due to that is has "file" as file type, not "LCP"?

Hi again, SayK,
Thanks for mentioning 7-zip. I downloaded that program, and then I could unzip your lens profile. I also downloaded the Adobe Lens Profile Creator program, but it could not open your lens profile. Maybe the file type (lccp?) was missing? I also read the Adobe documentation, but I failed there too, because in my Windows Vista computer there were none of the possible folders where the lens profile should be installed:
C:\Users\(User Name)\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0
C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0
I just did not have any of those folders.
Beginner's problems, i guess.

Hello SayK!
Thanks a lot for making the profile for the 18-135 lens!
It is really longed for.
But I had problems trying to unzip the file and got an error message that it was invalid.

Hi,

I am new to Pentax with my K-5 and these two lenses:
smc-DA 18-55/3.5-5.6 AL WR
smc-DA 18-135/3.5-5.6 AL (IF) DC WR

I would like to get profiles in Photoshop CS5 and ACR for these lenses, but cannot find them in the lists here, and I doubt that I could make a good lens profile myself.

Instead I have tried to lobby a little with Adobe and Pentax to try to get them to make the lens profiles. If many people do the same as I did, then maybe these companies would do as we wish and make more lens profiles. Here are the contact ways that I used:
https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
http://www.pentax.com/subsidiary.html#europe

I think you need to register first at Adobe and Pentax to use these contact possibilities.
