... If you only ever shoot JPEGs, it's a problem. If you shoot RAW ..., it's very easy indeed to fix the problem in mainstream PP software such as Lightroom or Aperture.

This, of course, is a constant refrain on this forum. My question is why can't JPEG be correct for CA? Certainly it could be converted to many other formats, and processed in them. Why am I completely stuck with CA from JPEGs? (I hope the answer is not something stupid like nobody has implemented the algorithm for anything but RAW. But, then, maybe that would give some of us hope.)

It may be that what you are looking for is DXO optics. This has camera and lens modules for both RAW and Jpeg photos I.e. EM5 + 12-35 jpeg which it uses to automatically (or custom) correct images for distortion vignetting and CA amongst other things.

It is available as a fully functioning 30 day trial.
