Hi,

My camera profiles are missing.

I placed them where Adobe recommends having them, under this directory:

Applications/Adobe Photoshop Lightroom X/Right-click Show Package Contents/Resources/Camera Profiles

They still do not appear in Lightroom, even after restarting my iMac.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks,

Phil

In LR5, they should be placed into the user folder. Read here: http://www.lightroomqueen.com/articles-page/lightroom-5-default-locations/

Are these profiles you created yourself?

For which camera type and for RAW or JPG?

A given lens profile either supports Raw based images, or else bitmap based images. You will only see the list of available profiles, that relate to the nature of the currently selected image. Profiles are commonly made for Raw, for which there is much the bigger demand - especially since many enthusiast and pro cameras can now lens-correct their own JPGs internally - so with a non-Raw image, you will see a much shorter list of available profiles.

Either a different profile must be obtained, or else there is a way to work with what you have - although it is a slight 'hack' / 'kludge'.

Briefly, that involves saving another copy of the Raw profile file, and simply text-editing that copy so it SAYS it is for non-Raw images. Then non-raw images will "see" it and can make use of it: the lens aberrations involved, being just the same after all. The results are in my experience usually fine, assuming no other lens correction e.g. in the camera, and in particular that no cropping (aside from in-LR nondestructive cropping) has happened.

If I'm correct, the OP was writing about camera profiles, not lens profiles.

Try shutting down and then rebooting your system.

To add..

If you shoot RAW, there are camera profiles showing up depending on the camera.

If you shoot JPG, there are no camera profiles as you would see it for RAW - this is by design.

Sorry, my mistake: indeed you are right, camera profiles not lens profiles. Oops!

I always shoot RAW and all files imported into Lightroom are in RAW format.

The presets I have require these camera profiles to work properly and are made for RAW format, specifically Nikon format (NEF).

I have reinstalled Lightroom twice and rebooted my system several times, still no luck.

Also, I have tried these camera profiles on my other computers, installing them in the same directories and it worked.

For some reason it seems as if Lightroom on my iMac is refusing to source the camera profiles from the right place.

Is there perhaps a way to change the directories on Lightroom for camera profiles?

I'd try to reset the preferences: Resetting Preferences in Lightroom CC/6

Reinstalling does NOT reset these.

I followed the steps and the camera profiles now show up as "Matrix", it is no longer displaying the usual Adobe Standard, Portrait etc profiles. Have a look at the screenshot below..
