From Julianne Kost's blog: 






These are not available in my LR Classic CC.

Hi Micah,

Double check that you don't have a jpeg image selected.

Right Rick. Or TIFF, PSD; anything that isn't a raw. Raws should show the profile for that camera model.

My custom made DCP profiles are missing.  I re added them to the folder, but LR 7.3 does not show them.  Did they change the format, so that my old profiles are not readable?

Some posts are still missing.  There was a post that specifically showed where the profiles go in Windows.  That post is gone.

Scroll down and try either D750 profile

OK, found all the posts.  Literally had to click "View Previous" SEVEN times.  Who designed this website.  Geez, not so good.

Does anyone else have any ideas. It looks like this thread has gone cold. I'm in the process of using an included profile and then a custom preset that gets me back close to where I was before. But I would like to use the profiles I have.

Any ideas would be appreciated. I cannot use a custom profile on either of my editing computers and at some point it might become a necessity. Plus I would like the correct functionality of the product I'm paying for.

I tried with  the profiles directly in the CameraProfiles folder and creating a subfolder called Nikon D750 within the CameraProfiles folder.  Neither of these show up.

This is a long shot, but you don't have "store presets with this catalog" enabled in Preferences > Presets, do you?

How were these profiles created?

Nope - just checked.  Also, I reset preferences by using the Alt+Shift as recommended by Rick.  I have not reset the preferences on my main editing station as I do not have the time to get everything how i like it again.  But I did the reset on my backup station.  This had no effect.

This is happening on two different computers so everyone is aware.  Is it possible it does not 'like' the DCP files?  I have re downloaded them from the link mentioned above.  It had no effect.

David in your screenshots it shows an import date for the selected NEF file of 7/14/2103. Camera Profiles are camera model specific and your 2nd screenshot shows Nikon D750 camera profiles. The Nikon D750 was. released until 09/12/2014 so it's not possible D750 NEFs were imported into LR on the date shown.

You most likely have an older Nikon camera model NEF file selected, which means the D750 camera profiles will not be visible.

yeah that was just a generic image I used. it doesn't matter what folder I'm in. That profile is missing trust me. I've been shooting with the d750 for a while I've got tons of those files it's not showing up. but good eye.

You need to close and relaunch LR after installing the Nikon D750 profiles in the User folder so LR can load them.

Sorry, I should have read all of your previous replies. My custom camera profiles are a mess so I feel your pain.

I downloaded the two camera profiles from the links provided and they are NOT showing up on my system either. There's something about them that's not compatible with LR 7.3. I used the DNG Profile Editor (DPE) to create a new copy of each camera profile and they now appear inside LR and work fine. How many other profiles do you have that are affected and do you know how to use DPE?

Hi Todd,

Hey look a hero!  I had a feeling it was something with the file format, etc.  The fact it was ignoring them on two different systems kind of gave that away.

Just those two actually.  I am not familiar with DPE, but could be if necessary.

You can download the files I "fixed" in DPE and replace the originals here. I suggest first saving all four the camera profiles to your backup drive. All I did was open a D750 DNG file, set the base profile to your profile, and exported as a new profile. Nothing was actually changed.

C: \ Users \ [your username] \ AppData \ Roaming \ Adobe \ CameraRaw \ CameraProfiles

https://www.dropbox.com/s/wxdwxch4w2aqk13/Nikon%20D750%20Neutral%20tone%20mapping.dcp?dl=0

If interested in DPE you can download a copy and the instruction guide at the below link. Scroll down the page to 'DNG Profile Editor (September 2012).' It was actually updated earlier this year (2018) to fix compatibility issues, but they never changed the date.

Thanks Todd!  Hi fives, hugs, all the good stuff.  If you're wondering... this is what it feels like to be a hero. :)
