Camera Raw: How can I successfully add the lens profile from the manufacturer?

Having just purchased a wide angle lens that got some good reviews, I was sorry to see it not listed among the lenses in Camera Raw. Now the manufacturer has prepared profiles on his website, especially created for Adobe. However I did not find a comprehensive way how to add it to my Adobe system. I work mostly in Bridge / Photoshop / Camera Raw all in the latest CC-version on a Mac OSX (also latest). Can anyone help me out?

You can place the lens profile (.lcp file) in the following location where Camera Raw (in Bridge and Photoshop) will be able to load it from.

/Users/<your user name>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0

Same as provided above by Chris Castleberry. It has to be a .lcp format lens profile (ProfileName.lcp). Once copied to that folder you will need to close and restart LR to load it.

I’m not using LR. Only PS. I did that, even made a separate folder, but it doesn’t show up.

Sorry, that is the correct folder for both LR and ACR. Where did you get the lens profile and for what type of file (raw or non-raw)?

I got them from IRIX. and I shoot raw. But there is no folder for IRIX in my camera raw selection area. I even copied the files to a different brand, and it doesn’t show up there. Do I need to reset or reinstall the software?

"I even copied the files to a different brand, and it doesn’t show up there."

if you see brand name folders you're installing the lens profiles in the wrong folder location! They need to be installed in the 'User' folder at the below path.

/Users/<your user name>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/LensProfiles/1.0

Here's an installation video on the IRIX website. The first is for Windows and second one for Mac.
