Correcting Lens Distortion and Fringe

Correcting Lens Distortion and Fringe

By Joseph Cristina

In this tutorial, professional photographer Joseph Cristina shows you how to make a few different types of corrections to your photos, using AfterShot Pro. You will learn how to use the Lens Correction filter to correct barreling (fisheye) or pincushion types of distortion, and how to remove chromatic aberration, which is a colored fringe around the edge of some objects in your photo. You will also learn how to use the Vignette feature, to add, remove or adjust the vignetting effect around the edge of your photos.

    I see there are a lot of popular lenses that Corel Aftershot Pro 3 does not support lens profile/correction for. I have a Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM, Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD, Sigma 50mm Art F1.4 DG HSM and Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM Art to mention a few. When can we expect to see these lenses and more in this software?

      Hello Svein,

      Thank you for the feedback! We are always on the lookout for which lenses our customers are using so that we can prioritize adding support for them.

      We don’t have anything to announce regarding our next update just yet, but we can confirm that these lenses have been added to the AfterShot team’s list for their consideration.

      All the best,
      Corel Discovery Center Team
