• Welcome to the Lightroom Queen Forums! We're a friendly bunch, so please feel free to register and join in the conversation. If you're not familiar with forums, you'll find step by step instructions on how to post your first thread under Help at the bottom of the page. You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The August 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes advanced GPU support, batch HDR/pano merge and more. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has deleted photos on the desktop/mobile apps, as well as video support and batch metadata editing on Android. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In my new book, Adobe Lightroom CC - Edit Like a Pro, you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    The book is based on the cloud-native Lightroom CC desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in Lightroom Classic/6.

I read somewhere that Lightroom has a lens profile for the Sony RX1.
The RX1 has a fixed Carl Zeiss lens Sonnar 2/35mm;
I would like to put this lens profile as a default in my LR.
*How do I locate this lens profile and
*how can I put this in LR as my lens profile default?
Thank you for helping me out!

Hi Harry. I'll assume you're updated to 4.3 now, since you're using an RX1? The lens profile was added at the same time, but it'll likely only show for raw files.

Go to the Lens Corrections panel and enable the lens corrections. It may find it automatically, but if it doesn't, find it in those pop-ups. If it wasn't found automatically, go to the pop-up just above and select Save New Lens Profile Defaults.

If you want to automatically apply it to all photos, instructions are here: http://members.lightroomqueen.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/1174/189/how-do-i-change-the-default-settings

Dear Victoria,
When I follow your instructions I only get, without any other choice, he "Sony DT 18-200mm" lens both under Model and Profile.
I checked and have LR 4.3

You haven't selected a raw file. I've just downloaded sample raw and JPEG files to double check.

Dear Victoria,
I am shooting in JPEG because for a while LR was not yet available for RX1 Raw files.
Since the image quality of the RX1 JPEG's is so excellent I forgot about switching to RAW!
A good thing that we have a LR-Queen!
Thank you very much,
Harry
