How do I stop Lightroom from automatically applying lense corrections?

I have tried creating a master preset and setting it to default in edit > preferences. I turned off lense corrections but it still automatically applies a lense correction for my camera every time I import photos.

Hi,

Just to make sure that the preset itself is working properly, have you tried applying it to a picture that already has lens correction? Does it turn it off, as it should?

If this is from a mirrorless camera, I don't think you can turn off the lens corrections. What camera?

That may not be related to the "preset", many Mirrorless Camera models have lenses that require lens corrections and the info is contained in the Raw file to be applied when processing. Lightroom Classic will apply the corrections at import, there is no option to turn off this feature.

There is no settings or preset or correction I can make to change this? It is a mirrorless camera. I like the "distortion" of the lense because I often play with perspective in my photography. That doesn't seem to make much sense to me. I only use lightroom to look through and sort my photos and then edit in photoshop. Are there any other programs (adobe or otherwise) that are good for sorting through your RAW photos and making selections? Everything LR does in terms of "developing" it seems like photoshop can do the exact same if not better.

You posted "it is a mirrorless, canon eos r6. Is it really impossible?"

Archie have a look at the article available at the link below. The Lightroom Classic update had some changes to how the built in lens profiles was applied to selected new Mirrorless models, check if it applies to your model.

So, you ate not using LrC to manage a database (catalog) of your photos. And you are not using LrC to edit metadata. And you are not using LrC to edit appearance (Develop)

 

You use it to cull thru images.

 

Sounds like you need to acquire a Media Browser meant for photos, to cull, to manage metadata, to rate, etc.

In Preferences> Presets after you select your preset with 'Enable Profile Corrections unchecked' click on 'Create Default' as shown below. It works for me using a Canon EOS R6 CR3 file.
