Hi Guys,

I use Aperture as my cataloguing and initial editing program,

 

After viewing some footage on KelbyOne, I was keen to try out the lens corrections in PS with ACR by accessing the lens and camera profile,

 

At first, I couldn't work it out but discovered that the original NEF file had to be loaded to access this option, unfortunately, when the original NEF is exported from Aperture, all edits are lost

 

I tried exporting PSD's and tiff's but PS still cannot read the lens and camera profiles even though the f stop and lens is listed just under the histogram in ACR

 

Is there another way? Or should I just get this out of the way before I get into any serious editing?

....Gary

I'm guessing but I'd imagine it will need completely unaltered raw data to manipulate in the same way as the camera does it via its JPEG engine.

Tks BP,

I think your right, thats the way things are pointing

 

Not the end of the world I guess, nice to know in advance so I'll attack that first in my adjustments routine

FWIW, DxO viewpoint does a marvellous job of the 24-120 f4 barrel distortion but getting the same message about lens profile, will try an original file tonight and see what happens, may be the same as PS

 

This ACR CC is truly amazing, having a lot of fun, at least I'm getting out of the house tomorrow, first time since February, going for a week break

 

Love your signature !  :)

Just saw this... I use the lens filter to change verticals when using wide angle lens. I use a jpeg image when editing. You have to go to layers and flatten image.

Tks, are you talking about the lens filter in ACR?

Filter-> Lens Correction->

I often just use "Custom" setting rather than using the actual lens to match.

Tks, tried that, more happy with the ACR in PS,

Just a quick click on Auto then a little adjustment if necessary

have DxO for the more taxing problems,

Then its usually distortion caused by the nut behind the viewfinder
