Support is already in the Camera Raw 8.6 release candidate in Adobe Labs, so it should be in the final LR 5.6 in a few more weeks:

After LR Mobile was added to LR, there hasn't been an RC version of LR, only ACR.

Thanks! I hope it will sooner than later. It's not the same developing Pictures without the lens corrections.

Are you on a PC or Mac?

You can be sneaky and copy the DNG Converter 8.6 RC 10-18 lens profile to the shared Users lens profile area and LR will see it.

Good idea! I'll try, but maybe it's a bit tricky for me...

Here is the place to put the .lcp profile file once you locate it:

Unfortunately I'm not able to make either the DNG converter or the CR8.6 work. I get an error-message, when I'm trying to install the downloads. So i'll just have to wait to the official release, which I hope for soon, But thanks again!!!

If you don't have Photoshop you should get an error with ACR 8.6 RC, but the DNG Converter 8.6 RC is a standalone program and should install ok as long as your OS is new enough.

What OS version do you have, and what error do you receive?

Oh, it was just a problem with my computer (Win8), so a restart have solved the problem, I have downloadet the DNG 8.6 and it opens fine, but apparantly it won't help me much, because I can't see where the lens profiles should be. Probably I'm not skilled enough! So it's ok for you to stop here, or else you're gonna guide me through the whole proces....

If you are on Windows 8 then I can give you some instructions, hopefully detailed enough, to be successful:

Install the DNG Converter 8.6 RC if you haven't already. It is available at Adobe Labs: http://labs.adobe.com/ until the final release comes out in a few weeks. The purpose of the install is to put the 10-18 STM lens profile in a folder on your computer. You won't use it for any other purpose.

The process described below will copy this newly-installed lens profile to the common user profile area that both Photoshop and Lightroom can see. Once the next version of LR comes out you should probably delete it from this shared area so there aren't two versions of it.

Specifically, we need to copy lens profile file:

  Canon EOS 50D (Canon EF-S 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM) - RAW.lcp

from

  C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0\Canon\

to

  C:\Users\your-user-name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\1.0\Downloaded

Here are the more detailed steps:

Verify the STM 10-18 profile exists in the following folder using Windows Explorer:
C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0\Canon\
The filename is:
Canon EOS 50D (Canon EF-S 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM) - RAW.lcp

Click on that filename in the Explorer window so it is selected, then right-click on it and choose Copy.

You can leave that Explorer window open and open another one by shift-double-clicking on the Explorer icon, if you want, or use that Windows Explorer window for the rest.

Next comes the tricky part, because it involves a hidden folder.

In an open Windows Explorer window, type %APPDATA% in the location or address area, then hit the Enter key or click the Go arrow:


Then you should see a path that starts with Users and ends with Roaming--that is what
%APPDATA% goes to.

If you're in the right place double-click to open Adobe, then CameraRaw, then LensProfiles. You should now be in an empty folder.

Right-click in the empty folder area and choose Create Folder and name the folder 1.0

Double-click into that folder and right-click and choose Create Folder and name it Downloaded then double-click into the Downloaded folder.

If you've done everything right your Window Explorer path up above should say something like:

c:\Users\your-user-name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\1.0\Downloaded

Right-click in the empty area and choose Paste. That should copy your lens profile from under ProgramData to this folder.

Now start up LR and it should be available.

Hi Steve! You're a very patient man!

But here we go: I can find the profile and I can find the path that ends with Roaming. Though - instead of the Windows Explorer window I uses the pathfinder - it also seems like it's the screendump you show...?

Further on I go to Adobe, CameraRaw and LensProfiles. But the next is not an empty folder - it's actually an excisting folder named 1.0. If I double-click on it, I get to a file named pscache.dat. So now I'm lost - again...

Any solutions?

If the folder exists and is not empty that's ok, just go ahead and create the Downloads folder inside by right-clicking on the empty area below the file list, then open Downloads and paste the .lcp file there.

I got a little furter, but :-).

You see, I have created the folder named:

C:\Users\Flemming\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0\Downloaded

and I have this filename in the Explorer adress-line with a huge amount of numbers etc. below:

C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0\Canon\Canon EOS 50D (Canon EF-S 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM) - RAW.lcp

I can click on this and choose Copy, but I can't Paste it in the empty "Downloaded" folder. "Paste" is simply dimmed.

So I'm stuck again...

Go to this folder in Explorer:

C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\LensProfiles\1.0\Canon\

Scroll down to the file named:

Canon EOS 50D (Canon EF-S 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM) - RAW.lcp

Single-click on this filename (not double-click like you did). This should highlight the name.

With the name highlighted, right-click on it and choose Copy.

Then switch over to the other Downloaded folder and choose Paste.

The "huge amount of numbers etc" is the lens profile data stored in XML format. If you actually see this then you've clicked too far and are probably seeing INTERNET Explorer rather than Windows Explorer. You should only have the Folder path ending in Canon in the Windows Explorer address area.

You're right! It was the Explorer that confused me. I Denmark we don't call it Windows Explorer, but Pathfinder. But now, at last, I got it right, and it works!!! Lots of thanks for your efforts and patience!!! I'm very thankful. Many regards from Flemming

If Google Translate is to be believed, the Danish word is stifinder which translates to pathfinder in English, but Google knows that Windows Stifinder translates to Windows Explorer so it understands the computer jargon usage when both are capitalized.

Hi Steve,
could you please help me too? I tried to do everything what you wrote but I still can ́t see this new profile in my Lightroom 5.6 64-bit.
I already have the file in new created folder: C:\Users\Origine\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\1.0\Downloaded\Canon EOS 50D (Canon EF-S 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM) - RAW.lcp

What should I do? Thank you very much!

That 10-18 STM profile is part of the Adobe-supplied profiles for LR 5.6 so you shouldn't have to copy it to the users profile area unless you're going to hack that one and make it work for JPGs.

If you are not seeing it then you are probably viewing something other than a RAW (CR2) file in LR, right, since the profile is only for RAW (CR2) files, not JPGs.

Here is where that profile resides on my computer now that LR includes it:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.6\Resources\LensProfiles\1.0\Canon\\Canon EOS 50D (Canon EF-S 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM) - RAW.lcp

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
When comes Lens Correction Files for "Canon EF-S 10-18mm f1 / 4.5-5.6 IS STM" ?.


Hello Adobe team,

I can unfortunately no lens correction profiles for my Canon EF-S 10-18mm f1 / 4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens find. In Lightroom are mapped distorted very unnatural with this lens created photographs.

Is it to be incorporated in an update possible this correction data?

I've tried using the "Lens Profile Creator" to create a profile for this lens, but the difficulty of software brings me no success.

Much obliged.

Andreas.

There is a 10-18 STM Lens Profile in LR 5.6 for RAW FILES ONLY.

The filename is:
Canon EOS 50D (Canon EF-S 10-18mm f4.5-5.6 IS STM) - RAW.lcp

Are you using LR 5.6?

Are you working with raw files in LR?
