    Have you checked that the Lens Profile has been applied to your RAW images? The TZ90 is a Tier 1 supported camera. It's the last one listed for Panasonic in https://on1help.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4409707069837-Supported-File-Types-and-Camera-models-for-ON1-Photo-RAW-2022.

    The way to batch process something in Photo RAW is with the Sync command. Apply the Crop to one of the images, then back in the Browser select all the rest of them, making sure the one you've cropped remains the super-selected image, it will have a brighter selection outline than the others, and click the Sync button. In the Sync dialog first click the None button to deselect all options then turn back on the option for Crop and Level.

    Hello Brian,

    Thanks for the reply.

    "Have you checked that the Lens Profile has been applied to your RAW images?"

    This is probably a daft question but how do I check that?

    In the Develop tab's Lens Correction panel. See page 127 of the User Guide for details.

    Adrian,

    You can also set On1 PR to apply lens correction automatically to all images in the Preferences dialog.

    This setting turns it on for all images. You can still turn off Lens correction by clicking the "Lens Correction" radio button.

    Hello Brian, I just take a couple of raw with the TZ90 and the attached screen grabs are from Lens Corrections in Edit and Info in Browse for one of them. Although Lens Correction gets the camera Make it gives No Match for the Lens.

     

    David Kick - thanks I already have Apply Lens Correction...... ticked.

    Just noticed in the Files sections of Preferences there are two DC-TZ90 listings. Should there be just one?

    That's because there is no entry for it, at least not by that name, in the list of supported lenses for Panasonic cameras.

    The same camera/lens combination can have different names in different countries. The Lens Correction code works on a string search so they have to have the exact same names in the lens database and the photo's metadata. I do not know which one should match. I would try selecting each in order to see if you can find one that does match or at least comes close.

    From what has been said about the upcoming 2022.5 update it looks to me like ON1 might be moving away from the Lensfun database to something new called LensMatch. I haven't looked into it so I don't know how it works.

    You might want to ask tech support about this. I would give them the link to this topic so they can see what we've talked about and hopefully not have you repeating what we've already gone through.

    Thanks Adrian, but just a heads up that the program doesn't always respect that setting. I make it a habit to always check right at the start of my editing because I never know when it will, and when it won't. However, it does seem to be more of a problem with older photos than with what I have just imported. Even then, photos I took yesterday with my Canon R5 & RF 24-105mm lens sometimes did not get the lens correction applied right off the bat. Sometimes I could get it to work by returning to the Browser then going back into the Editor, other times I had to apply it manually.

    In between all the messages I found the Lens Profile for Lecia has a Lens DMC-TZ70 & Compatibles. Which corrects the dark borders and other things. So I created and saved a preset then in Preferences>Files I just my saved Preset for RAW against the TZ90 for both entries and hey presto it works ok.

    I will raise a case with support.

    many thanks

    Be careful with that. If you open the file for that camera/lens combination (~/Library/Application Support/ON1/ON1 Photo RAW 2022/lensdb/compact-panasonic.xml) you'll see that it contains multiple correction entries for different focal lengths. When you save a Preset it uses the focal length that was used for the image the preset was made from and you won't always get the proper correction profile.

    You can modify that file, it is an ASCII text file so use a text editor and not a word processor. Duplicate the entry I've shown above and change the <maker> entry to Panasonic. That should allow Photo RAW to find your camera & lens automatically. You might want to make a backup copy of the file before you start just for some insurance in case things go wrong.

    If you choose to edit the lens correction profile you might also want to change the <model> entry to DC-TZ90. I would try it without that change first because of the 'compatibles' part. If the program still does not find your lens, then make that change and see what happens.

    Just FYI, there are new lens correction features coming in a few weeks in the 2202.5 update...

    I edited the xml file and that seemed to work ok so I’ve done away with using the preset in the Files section. 

    thanks Brian (and everyone) for help and advice.
