"Lens corrections in Lightroom 4"

When I use lens corrections in Lightroom 4 for my new Tamron 70-300VC, it does not automatically find the lens like it does when I use my Nikkor 16-85 VR. When I manually choose Tamron from the drop down list it always chooses an incorrect version of the Tamron lens. As a result I have to scroll down the list for every photo I process and choose the correct lens profile.

The process is so much easier for my Nikkor 16-85VR. When I check the enable lens profiles box it automatically chooses the correct Nikkor lens without any further effort from me.

Does anyone know if there is a way I can set up Lightroom 4 so it recognizes my Tamrom 70-300VC in the same manner. Thanks.

If the EXIF metadata is contained in the image file LR should be able to work out the correct lens profile. I have a Nikkor lens that is not listed in the drop down menu so I believe I'd have to customize the Lens Correction settings and use the Setup menu to Save new Defaults. Hope this helps.

What happens if you select a bunch of photos shot with the same lens, make one which is corrected with the right profile the most selected one (click to make its frame the brightest one, and the sync settings, selecting lens corrections? Does it replicate the lens corrections with the profile for Tamron 70-300, or does it guess the profile for each photo separately?

Regards, Antero

Antero and John,

Based on what John said, I think I have it figured out. I selected the correct lens from the Tamron profile list, then under the Enable Profile Corrections box, I clicked on Setup then Save New Lens Profile Defaults. This seems to have solved the problem and when I select a new photo taken with the same lens it shows the correct profile. Thanks both of you for your responses.

Can you set it so it will apply the corrections when you import ?

Yes. Just start with a file that you haven't manipulated, place check marks beside both the lens corrections and chromatic aberrations removal options and then make it your new camera default. Both Lightroom and ACR (if you have it) will now share the same default that includes an automatic correction of distortion, vignetting and chromatic aberration. It's how I have my system configured.

You follow the same process that you would to make other settings part of your default. Adjust an image to what you want the default parameters to be and then within the Develop module select Develop>Set Default Develop Settings and then pick "Update to Current Settings". This is how you can set your own sharpening preferences, color profiles, whatever you want.. for a given camera.

For my cameras, I have the default setting include a color profile I made, sharpening that brings out finer detail, and lens correction (including distortion, vignetting and chromatic aberration).
