I recently bought a used converted camera to try out infrared photography.
I've tried using the DNG Profile Editor to overcome white balance restrictions in Lightroom 5.7.1.
The Profile Editor tells me it has exported the profile I have created but the created profile will not appear in the Camera Calibration section.
When I check the profile that has been created the file is only 1kb in size. Other profiles for that camera that Adobe has created are 110kb.
I have downloaded the DNG Profile Editor a few times thinking it was a problem resulting from a faulty download but it is always the same.
Is anyone having any joy in using the DNG Profile Editor?
Thanks

Keith - thanks for your reply. Yes I used a photo taken by the converted camera. The article you linked to was the one I was using to guide me. I have also looked at some Youtube videos as well. A friend using LR subscription version says she has had problems recently as well. How recently did you use the Profile Editor? Thanks

Thank you for linking to my article about how to set proper Infrared White Balance in Lightroom. The instructions provided there should be perfectly applicable to your Lightroom version 5.7.1.

It is indeed true that Adobe changed the way profiles are being used back in March 2018, but this affects only people using Lightroom Classic CC.
