Does Aperture have a database of every brand and lens? Or must a user designate the lenses he owns in the setup procedure.

Aperture 3, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4), running an iMac

    Aperture does not do lens correction. You need to use a plug-in, for example PTLens, or an external editor like Photoshop.

    It will take a bit of learning to have confidence to work the adjustments.

    For lens correction, there is no learning to do. PTLens detects your lens, and the correction is automatic.


    PTLens also does perspective correction. That's pretty strightforward. Just some sliders until the result looks OK. There's aa video and some examples on the PTLens home page.
