Andromeda LensDoc Ships
plugin corrects for lens distortion
Software has started shipping a new Photoshop filter called LensDoc.
is designed to correct distortions, such as barreling and pincushioning
image distortions, produced by zoom and wide-angle lenses. It also
provides correction for perspective and rotation.
filter works when through a system of points. The user identifies
two lines in the image that should be straight and applies two sets
of three points to the lines. The filter then provides a preview
of the correction, allowing for changes before the final application.
addition, LensDoc includes settings for specific lenses for lens
correction and provides extra distortion effects for emulating certain
lenses. Each lens setting has subsettings for focal length and focus
distance, as well as less/more correction settings and center settings.
settings include barreling, extreme barreling, generic pincushioning
and no correction. The filter also includes an expert mode. It allows
users to save lenses, get more lenses, switch from picture preview
to a series of curve graphs and toggle auto size mode. Toggling
auto size allows users to define which areas of the image will be
scaled and which pixels will be lost in resizing the image.
are currently being accepted for LensDoc at an introductory price
of $69. The normal price will be $89. We'll bring you more when
the full version is released. For more information, visit http://www.andromeda.com.
