Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Correcting lens distortion, part of Enhancing iPhone Photos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
…Even the nicest DSLR lenses have some form of lens distortion.…So for instance, a Ziss 21 millimeter…Prime lens, even that lens has some distortion.…So you can imagine that a tiny little lens about the size of…a bb that comes off of the iPhone is going to have some trade offs.…It can only gather so much light. It's trying to see a pretty wide angle.…So let me show you what we can do in around lens correction using Light Room.…We are going to take this image here. You could use any of your own images.…
Now it's going to be more profound with some images than others.…We are going to pop over to the develop module and if you scroll down.…You'll get to an area for lens correction, and we've got a few different tabs here.…So let's just talk about these piecemeal.…One, if I were to choose Enable Profile…Corrections, I'd see that I've loaded automatically a profile…for my Apple iPhone 3G.…And that we have a profile built just for that and I can play…around with that afterwards but if I look at it really carefully, watch the edges.…
Next, Bryan explores Lightroom and Photoshop techniques aimed at working around the iPhone camera's limitations and making mobile photos look their best: enhancing dynamic range, correcting lens distortion, reducing noise and enhancing sharpness, and much more. Plus, learn how to create HDR images and panoramas, and even lift still images from video.
