I can see the following 7 profiles in my Camera Raw app:
Adobe Color, Adobe Monochrome, Adobe Landscape, Adobe Neutral, Adobe Portrait, Adobe Standard, Adobe Vivid.

But I can't find them in the Lightroom Classic. I do have other profiles in the LrC. But just not these 7 profiles.

Adobe lightroom 4.4

Lightroom Mobile 7.3.0

Viewing same raw file in both

What camera was used to take that picture? 

 

Please clarify your post, as you mention Lightroom Classic a couple of times, but the screenshot is from the Lightroom Desktop app, not LrC. You also say you are using Lightroom 4.4, but the current version is 5.3....so are you not able to update to the latest version? It may be that the camera you used is too new and isn't supported in Lightroom 4.4. The Lightroom Mobile app you are using IS the latest version, so that would have all the latest camera profiles available.

No, I don't believe that you can import those profiles, they are built-in automatically as part of the app installation.

You can't update the operating system? That seems the simplest solution. Mojave is 4 yours old now and it is probably not a good idea to run an OS that is no longer getting frequent security updates.

No - updating the operating system is not the solution - simply being able to export profiles from the mobile app would be great functionality to have...

Those profiles cannot be exported or synced. They are built into current Lightroom versions and are not standard kinds of camera profiles. Adobe changed how profiles work and these are not like the profiles you might be used to. You need Catalina or later to be able to run the Lightroom versions that have these profiles built in so you simply need to update your operating version which will allow you to update classic and Lightroom desktop and get support for those profiiles. Except if your computer does not support newer operating systems than Mojave, this is the solution to the issue.

"Viewing same raw file in both"

 

Triple-check you really are editing a raw file (and not a JPEG) in LR Desktop by doing View > Info and looking at the file name. It's not uncommon here for people to swear they're editing a raw when in fact it's a JPEG -- by default, LR hides the file type.  The profiles Adobe* only apply to raws.

That's unlikely, John. If it was a Jpeg, the profile would simply be listed as "Color", but the screenshot shows the "missing profile" is Adobe Standard, which means the source image would have to be Raw. I don't think it's even possible to manually select a raw profile for a Jpeg file.

@Jim Wilde, I missed that in the screenshot. I agree with your analysis -- it isn't possible to select a raw profile for a JPEG.
