Hi All,


I am looking for something Aperture related that has built in lens profiles similar to LR that can correct distortion quickly. I tried unsuccessfully to install the PTlens plugin three times. It simply doesn't work. Are there any other options that are decent?


Thanks for the help!

    Did you install all three files in the correct locations as follows?


    /Application folder:




    /Users/<YourLogin>/Library/Application Support/Aperture/Plug-Ins folder:




    Note - the user Library is hidden by default in OS X 10.7.x. If you press and hold the Option key while using the 'Go' menu in OS X menu bar, you will be able to select and navigate to the Library folder in the latter address above.


    Unfortunately, with PTLens (or any other plug-in) - Aperture makes a TIFF (or PSD) master file to work on. I don't know of any program or plug-in that doesn't add to the workflow in Aperture for lens correctlion.


    FWIW, I use DxO Optics Pro 7.5 for my kit lens, but I output in JPEG format and then import into Aperture. It works well for me, but is not necessarily for everyone.
