    Forgive me but I tried searching for this and like a lot of the other photo forums, the search function leaves a lot to be desired.

    I have a Panasonic 20mm and Adobe Photoshop CS5 with Adobe Camera Raw. ACR can recognize my Nikon 35mm DX lens and it automatically applies distortion fixes from a preset profile.

    How do I get ACR to do this with my Pany 20mm? All I really need is the pincushioning applied....

    Frank, good seeing you here....
    I do believe that ACR does that automatically. I'm not 100% but almost.
    I use LR and everything is in there automatically.

    ACR and LR automatically do the corrections specified by the lens's metadata, but those are not usually full, i.e. you get less distortion rather than no distortion and less vignetting rather than no vignetting (and no CA correction at all on Olympus bodies), just like the camera JPGs.

    This is one of those micro 4/3 peculiarities.
