Lens Correction

Lens correction is a great tool to use in post-processing digital images, helping you improve their appearance by making photographing mistakes less visible. Some of the common types of image distortions which can be fixed using Lens correction are: barrel or "fish-eye" distortion, which involves an oversized image center and shrinking edges, pincushion distortion, where the image frame seems to be bowed inwards and complex or "moustache" distortion, which is a combination of the previous two.

While many people think that applying Lens correction requires an advanced graphics editing software such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel Draw or GIMP, with reaConverter this editing feature can be added in a matter of seconds.
