ImageIron fixes distorted picsPress release:
When making professional or highly demanding photos, you desire to get
brilliant and distortion-free images. However, even the most expensive
camera lenses show inaccuracies. The new Windows software ImageIron
corrects these distortions with unparalleled precision, supports any
camera lens and exports the correction data, if desired.
Detailed information about the software is available on their website.
Here, you can download a fully functional 30-days trial version. On
request, journalists can obtain a test license including the export
function, which is not included in the trial version.
Residue distortion below 1 pixel
In contrast to other software solutions, ImageIron does not only
recognize and minimize radial but also radial-asymmetric and tangential
distortions of the photos. Manufacturing inaccuracies of the lenses are
individually taken into account. Since the procedure works with
concrete values instead of the usual approximate values (spline
calculation), the remaining distortion, which the program can reliably
estimate, is far below one pixel. Furthermore, ImageIron eliminates the
light fall-off at the image edges (vignetting).
Calibration for all cameras and lenses
An intelligent calibration procedure is the basis of the extremely high
precision: the photographer makes photographs of a standardized
calibration map with different focal lengths. ImageIron analyzes these
photographs and determines even the smallest deviations. The determined
differences serve as a pattern for the calibration of all other images
which have been taken with that camera lens. Shift-lenses and other
special solutions do not constitute a problem either.
Correction and data export with a mouse click
When the calibration has once been made, you can comfortably calibrate
any number of images. The photographer only needs a few mouse clicks to
start the batch process. Especially interesting for optical system
manufacturers is the unique export feature: the distortion and
vignetting parameters can be output as a diagram or table.
