I have been merrily using my Nikon AF-S 18-140 lens for a few years now with lightroom (classic).  I recently upgraded to the latest version of LC and now I can no longer find the correct lens profile under Develop/Lens Corrections.  It used to auto-detect the correct lens, but now this lens does not even appear on the pull-down list.  Can anyone help me restore this lens profile?

I am using: Lightroom Classic 9.3; OSX 10.15.5
Camera is a Nikon D5500

All pictures are in RAW format

 

Thanks!

It appears from your screenshot that you have a JPEG selected in Develop, not a raw. The lens profiles displayed are exactly those that are available for non-raws (most profiles only work with raws).

 

Double-check you're editing a raw by typing "i" to show the file name in the info overlay in the upper-left corner.

Ahah!  Rookie mistake!  Thanks.  I recently updated my camera firmware, and it seems to have started shooting in JPEG format.   Corrected now.

Glad you got it resolved. It's a fairly common mistake. By default, Develop doesn't tell you whether you're editing a raw or not.
