Fix lens-induced flaws, including colour fringing, vignetting and perspectival distortion
1 Add A GRID
Browse to lens_start.NEF image in the Folders window. Go to Image>Show Grid; this helps you spot converging verticals caused by perspectival distortion and curved lines caused by geometric distortion. Go to Window>Birds Eye. Click the Edit panel’s Camera and Lens Corrections icon.

In the Camera and Lens Control panel, set the Auto Distortion Control drop-down menu to On. Toggle Auto Distortion Control box on and off to compare the original photo with the corrected one. Capture NX-D uses lens profile data to evaluate and counteract geometric distortion.

Type a value of 300% into the Bird’s-Eye View to magnify the image. Drag inside the Bird’s-Eye View’s rectangle to display the area shown above. Toggle the Lateral Color Aberration box off and on. This hides the purple and green colour fringes that are clinging to the edges of the church.
4 Reduce vig netting
Double-click on the image to zoom out and reveal the full shot. Your photo’s edges may not be evenly lit due to vignetting. Tick the Camera and Lens Control panel’s Vignette Control box. Drag the slider right to lighten the edges and create a more even exposure; a level of 160 suits this shot.
