Thread: What PP programs can remove barrel distortion

    Default What PP programs can remove barrel distortion

    What programs can remove barrel distortion, by that I mean how to correct the vertical lines to perpendicular in post processing of building architecture or internal room shots taken using wide angle lenses.

    Is it only Photoshop. ??? I have Adobe elements, also Literoom and Aperture for Mac, personally I dont want to go the expense of CS4 are there any plug-ins available.

    Cheers

    Pretty sure LR and Aperture doesn't provide this.

    CS4 definitely have the means to transform.

    PTLens works as standalone or as an extension of Photoshop/LR. It contains distortion profiles for most lens so all you have to do is select the lens and focal length used, and the software does the rest (with some room for manual fine-tuning). Cool idea.

    I think Nikon NX2 also can do it based on the Nikon lens that you used.

    Try this freeware for Photoshop (any versions). It caters to barrel and pin-cushion distortions.

    Canon Digital Photo Professional does have the lens aberration correction for four different values (peripheral illumination, distortion, chromatic aberration and color blur), you might want to give it a try (provided if you shoot in raw format).

    Edit: The type of lenses used must also be supported by the software.
