This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Camera Raw/Lightroom: When will my Lens profile be available?

Lens profiles are only available on RAW files. However there is a list of (useless) "default" profiles that is available to any image format. 

In the most recent update to 7.3.1 the limiting of the Lens Distortion tool has made it impossible to correct lens distortion for anyone not using RAW image formats. As an editor this has made it impossible for me to correct image distortion from some of my clients. 

Where I used to be able to add a lens profile to an image then make large adjustments with the distortion slider, then I could alley them to multiple images vis the Sync option. I can now only make small adjustments that are not significant enough to make up for the lack of lens profiles in the "default" options available to non-RAW images.  To correct these distortions I have to do each individual file in Photoshop. This has INCREASED not decreased production time dramatically. 

Either add ALL profiles to the availability of all image formats or restore the functionality to the distortion slider. In reality both should happen, the profiles should be available across all formats AND the distortion slider should work as it did in previous versions.

Please fix this yesterday.
