7DM2 Lens Aberration Correction does it affect RAW image or just jpegs?

New 7DM2. If Lens Aberration Correction is enabled in menu does it affect the RAW image as well as any jpegs or just any jpegs that are created? My new camera first stoopid question!! Did not find answer in manual!!

There are no stupid questions hereSmiley Happy

 

Lens corrections will be applied to JPEG and recognized in RAW if you use Canon DPP. If you use Lightroom or any other non-Canon software they are not recognized.  Lightroom does have its own set of Canon lens correction profiles.

Re: 7DM2 Lens Aberration Correction does it affect RAW image or just jpegs?

John,

 

Thanks for the clarifying response. I just received PE14, so I do not use DPP. Had been a "lite" user of PE12 but it was not capable of reading my new RAW files. Spoke with someone else yesterday and they were a Lightroom user, maybe I should have tried and ordered that instead. I'm not familiar with LR. Not sure if PE14 has lens correction profiles....probably not with my luck. Anyway I am greatfull for your prompt response.

You can use DPP in conjunction with PSE. Open the raw file in DPP, use the Digital Lens Optimizer in DPP, export a TIFF and then import into PSE. A little clunky, but it works.

 

There are philosophical issues some folks have with the Adobe software "rental" business model, but if that doesn't bother you the $10/month Photographer Bundle gives you Lightroom and Photoshop. A great deal.

 

If that interests you I think there is a 30 day refund policy for PSE. You can always call Adobe and see what you can negotiate if you are interested.

Lightroom and PSE14 are not the same program.   They do similar things but not exactly the same.  For a 'normal' non-pro photographer PSE is most likely the better choice.  It has many if not all the features LR has.  LR is more designed for the pro photographer that shoots thousands upon thousands of photos.  It does not have all the editing features that PSE14 has.

 

Plus PSE has many of the same features that full blown Photoshop has.  Remember the more features and controls any software has the less user friendly it is or one click control it has.

 

IMHO, DPP4 is a good program but is "not ready for prime time" yet.  It is getting better and has a better sharpening routine than Adobe's.  Again, IMHO, I prefer Adobe's RAW converter (ACR9) over Canon's own as does 95% of the professional photographic industry.

DPP also has a specific option to export a file directly to Photoshop. I haven't used it, so I don't really know how it works (including whether it uses TIFF or some other format). But it presumably allows you to apply Canon's lens corrections while still calling on the power of Photoshop when it's required.

The DPP->Photoshop export does convert the DPP file with all processing to a TIFF. I haven't tried recently, but in the past it didn't work with Elements, only full PS.

"DPP also has a specific option to export a file directly to Photoshop."

 

And yet another reason to just start with PS in the first place.

Lightroom does support lens aberration (chromatic aberration) correction.  You'll find it in the "Develop" module in the right margin under the "Lens Correction" panel.  Within that panel there's a checkbox to turn on profile correction and chromatic aberration correction correction.  

 

This assumes Adobe has made a profile for that particular lens.

And LR supports lenses that are made by other manufactures.  DPP does not.
