My lens, TAMRON 17-50mm F4 DiIII VXD A068 is listed on Adobe's list of supported lenses. I have the latest version of Lightroom CC 7.1.2 installed on my Mac. But it doesn't recognise my lens and when I try and select a profile manually I cannot find it.

Make sure you are working on a raw file. Most lens profiles are raw-only and do not work on JPEG and other formats.

If you're experiencing difficulties finding a lens profile in Adobe software despite it being listed as supported on the Adobe website, there are a few things you can check and steps you can take to address the issue:

  1. Update Adobe Software: Ensure that you are using the latest version of Adobe software. Updates often include new lens profiles, bug fixes, and improvements. Check for updates and install the latest version.

  2. Camera Raw and DNG Converter: If you're using Adobe Camera Raw, make sure it is also up to date. You can download the latest version from the Adobe website. Additionally, Adobe DNG Converter can be used to convert proprietary raw files to DNG format, which may provide broader compatibility with lens profiles.

  3. Community Profiles: Sometimes, the lens profile you need might be available through the community rather than the official Adobe profiles. Check online forums, photography communities, or websites that specialize in lens profiles. Users often share profiles they've created for specific lenses.

  4. Contact Adobe Support: If you're still unable to find the lens profile, consider reaching out to Adobe support for assistance. They may be able to provide guidance or investigate the issue further.

  5. Manually Install Profiles: Adobe allows users to manually install lens profiles. You can download profiles from reputable sources, including lens manufacturers' websites or community forums. Once downloaded, follow Adobe's instructions for manually installing lens profiles.

  6. Check File Compatibility: Ensure that the image files you are working with are supported by the specific lens profile. Some lens profiles may only be available for certain file formats or camera models.

  7. Clear Cache: Sometimes, cache issues can cause problems. Try clearing the cache in Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom to see if that resolves the problem.

  8. Verify Lens Information: Double-check that the lens information in the metadata of your photos matches the profile you are looking for. Sometimes, slight variations in the reported lens information can affect profile recognition.

If you've exhausted these options and still can't find the lens profile, it might be worth exploring alternative methods or reaching out to the lens manufacturer for support. Additionally, keep an eye on Adobe's official announcements and release notes for updates related to lens profiles.
