Dear community,

 

I'm trying to figure out whether it is possible to import 3rd party (Zeiss) lens profiles into Lightroom Classic. The thing is that the profile is available in LR but not in LRC.

 

Do I need to switch to LR or is there a way to import it to LRC?

 

Many thanks!
Karsten

If the lens profile is available in Lightroom, then it should also be available in Lightroom Classic and Camera Raw. Can you provide details of the missing lens profile so that we can check.

 

Also, note that some cameras apply lens corrections in-camera. Therefore, no profile is needed. Such profiles are denoted by '! Built-in Lens Profile Applied' at bottom of Lens Correction panel
