This should usually happen automatically when opening and developing a RAW file, since the relevant informations (cam type, lense used etc.) are all inside the EXIF image data. The software usually reads this data and applies the lens corrections, as far as the cam and lens are supported and identified through the by the software used third party libraries for these tasks. - See the related ...

well all of my cameras and lenses are supported acording to these charts but still it doesnt show up

You can't select a profile. It will be applied automatically if:

  • You have "Apply Lens Corrections" selected in the Develop Assistant (View > Assistant Manager... while in the Develop Persona)  and
  • The camera and lens is supported and
  • The camera and lens information specified in the EXIF data is correct (View > Studio > EXIF).

Photo uses exiftool to read the information, and on occasion that may not happen properly.

My lens (Nikon 18-135mm zoom) is not supported by default so I needed to download & install the Nikon SLR lens profiles. Here's a link to the tutorial.


p.s. Adobe Lightroom does NOT provide a profile for this lens -- yet another reason I'm glad I switched to Affinity Photo!
