Automatic Lens correction. How to adjust?

Recommended Posts

I cannot find where the lens correction for supported lenses are applied (I'm using a Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G). I were expecting something where I can see/select the profile for the lens and make any overrides if needed similar to Adobe's "Enable Profile Corrections" options.

I do have automatic lens correction enabled in Develop Assistant.

Have you looked at the Panels on the right?

Yes, that is the panel I was referring to. These are for manual adjustments regardless of lens profile. These values are the same wether I enable lens correction or not. I have no idea if lens correction were applied, or my lens detected correctly.

I'm looking for something like this, or at a minimum some indication that the lens was recognised and adjusted:

AP currently doesn't tell the user whether lens correction was applied. You'd need to compare the result when lens correction is enabled against the result when lens correction is disabled, and if there's no difference then correction wasn't applied.

It seems odd that AP doesn't provide this information. There's a checkbox in the Develop Assistant Manager for "tell the user when the assistant takes an action", which would seem to indicate that it should be telling us when lens corrections, etc. are applied.

That alert is regarding the actions listed below the option.

Very odd, hence me raising me question.
No positive response yet from Serif :(.

I fully agree with this. At present I have no idea if lens correction has been applied or not and if it has whether the correct lens was selected. It's not enough to just switch it on and hope it's happening. I want to see confirmation.

I have recently tried ACDSee (awful file management, must own shares in WD) which consistently selected the wrong lens despite showing the correct lens in the metadata and On1 which sometimes worked but usually didn't. In both cases the lens used was known and could be selected manually but at least the software was showing that it had screwed up.

We need to see what lens was used.
