Adobe to include lens correction in Photoshop Lightroom 3, Camera Raw 6.1  
Tuesday, April 27, 2010 | by Rob Galbraith
Adobe will include the lens correction capabilities of Photoshop CS5 itself in the next major release of Photoshop Lightroom as well as the Camera Raw plug-in for Photoshop CS5. Both Lightroom 3 and Camera Raw 6.1 will enable lens corrections to be applied during the RAW file conversion process, with the same profile-based automatic and fully manual correction options as the Lens Correction tool in Photoshop CS5 proper (separate from Camera Raw, that is).

Adobe has prepared a video (below) demonstrating the new feature in Camera Raw 6.1. In addition, Tom Hogarty, Adobe's product manager for Lightroom and Camera Raw, has published a brief blog post discussing this capability.

In an email exchange this morning, Hogarty notes that Camera Raw 6.1 and its new lens correction tab will not be included with Photoshop CS5 when it starts shipping. At launch, Camera Raw 6.0 will be the bundled version. Camera Raw 6.1 will be made available as a free update for Photoshop CS5 users, he says, and it should materialize shortly after the new image editor hits the streets.

Photoshop Lightroom 3 is to ship later this year.
