Digikam will offer lens distorsion auto-correction

In a blog entry, Gilles Caulier announced support for “lens distorsions auto-correction” available as an image editing plug-in for the KDE4 version of Digikam. By now, we know this comes thanks to the Lensfun library. Adrian Schroeter from OpenSuse team wrote the plug-in.

Exciting times.

    Lensfun support is in UFRaw CVS as well, I believe. It does look like Lensfun is on track to become a standard lens corrextion library – and not a moment too soon either.

  2. Janne, if you’re correct about Lensfun being part of UFRaw, I’m not sure what I’m going to do. I switched to using RawStudio because of it’s simplified workflow. If I get a wide-angle lens and start needing distortion correction, that’s going to throw a wrench in the works for me. It would be great to have that in my RAW converter, rather than having to open up my images in another application.

    Hi John,

    Apparently, lensfun support is also being worked on in Rawstudio: http://prokoudine.info/blog/?p=76

    “The Great Anderses of Rawstudio🙂 also demoed (privately) an initial support for LensFun (without advanced options as well). It fixes geometric distorsions only right now and I don’t know when it will be released.”

    Credit to Alexandre Prokoudine for the info🙂

    Take care,

    Joel
