Create a Custom Lens Profile

By Joseph Cristina

From lens copy to lens copy no two are exactly alike. Thus, a bit of lens distortion correction above and beyond the standard profile can help you create the best photos possible. In this tutorial, professional photographer Joseph Cristina shows you how to make a custom lens profile in AfterShot Pro. He reviews 1st order, 2nd order and 3rd order distortion correction while making the process quick and easy for anyone to do. This technique can also be used to make amazing artistic lens distortion right from within your RAW photo files.
