- Let's take a look at fixing…wide-angle distortion…with a lens profile.…I'll bring some footage…into both Lightroom and Photoshop…to do this.…I'll start by Importing,…and I'll go to my Exercise Files.…I would pull everything in from Folder 2.…You'll see there's a collection of stills from a Burst,…as well as some video clips.…
I'll simply Add these,…rather than copying them to my drive.…And let's simply Import.…Let's start with some settings here…to fix the actual image itself.…I'll start with something here…from an action shot,…and go to the Develop module.…If I scroll down,…you'll notice the Lens Correction section.…Let's Twirl that open,…and I'll Enable Profile Corrections.…
You'll note that that's a pretty pronounced fix.…Additionally, we might as well…Remove Chromatic Aberration,…and then go to the Profile page.…In this particular case,…it recognized the model of camera used.…It was a HERO3+,…and I was shooting with the Black Edition.…You'll note there's profiles…for both the HERO3,…the 4,…and the 3+.…Let's go to another shot for a moment.…
Author Rich Harrington starts with the basics: importing and organizing photos, correcting distortion, adjusting color and exposure, and getting ready for print. He then moves on to working with video: developing color and exposure with adjustment layers and presets, and then rendering out the adjustments for editing in another application. He wraps things up with a short, fun tutorial on assembling a time-lapse sequence. Start watching and learn the skills you need to get the best-looking footage from the GoPro and other action cameras.
