How To Use Auto Lens Correction

Lens Correction

 Distortion, vignetting and chromatic aberration are all common problems. It typically happens when you’ve used a wide lense and can cause an object to appear differently shaped than what it looks like in real life. Whether you want to remove unattractive yellow and pink lines, halos or black corners on an image, Luminar’s Lens Correction tools will get the job done without you having to break a sweat.

Why use Luminar?

No need to disable the Lens Correction feature

While Luminar’s Lense Correction tool will fix common problems automatically, the lens correction will only be applied to your images that, in fact, have issues with distortion, chromatic aberration or vignetting. So, those photos that don’t need extra editing won’t be affected at all. Though, if you would like to disable it, rest assured, you can do so anytime. Simply go to Settings and disable the Auto Lens Correction feature.

How does the lens and geometry tool work?

With the help of intuitive sliders, you can easily remove imperfections in your photo that resulted from improper camera or lens handling. Depending on whether you opt to work with RAW or standard file formats, you’ll be able to access a wide range of different controls.

Lens distortion
