Which camera and lens do you use?

Also are you processing raw or JPEG/TIFF files, which have fewer available lens profiles?

Sorry... Using a NIkon Z6 and 24-120mm, I'm editing in LRClassic. I cannot get the program to allow me to select a specific lens from the lens corrections>profiles menu. It seems to limit the amount of choices, however I checked and there are many more loaded on my computer. I need to fix this. Any ideas?

The Nikon Z6 camera raw files (NEF) use built-in lens profiles as indicated below. 'Enable Lens Profile' does NOT need to be selected.
If you're not seeing the small 'i' icon and 'Built-in lens profile' text at the bottom of the Lens Corrections panel then you're processing JPEG image files. Camera JPEG files already have distortion, vignetting, and chromatic aberration correction applied in-camera. No additional lens profile corrections need to be applied inside LR.

(click on the 'i' icon to see the below embedded lens profile information)
