More Thoughts


It sounds like you've put a lot of thought in this project. Here's my viewpoint.

You see opportunity at the low and high end. At the low end, Lightroom 4 is ~$150. I don't think anyone who is not willing to spend that much will much care about lens correction, especially if it requires them to spend some technical time creating custom profiles.

You may have some success at the high end, but you would have to be able to clearly demonstrate the superiority of your software in correcting. I think the market would be fairly small, limited to architectural photographers and perhaps some well heeled gear heads.

I have not created a profile. Tell me what I would have to do to create one with the software you envision. Would it require careful setup and targets?
