Just upgraded from PSE9 to PSE11 and find that when I use Filter - Correction Camera Distortion - Vignette to add a vignette effect to an image, the command also slightly crops the image. This is a problem because I often like to erase part of the vignette, usually to keep a face bright. You can't do that with a cropped image as partial erasing leaves a distorted version of the image. This was never a problem with PSE9. Am I doing something wrong? How do I correct it? Thanks.
Try after manually deleting Correct camera Distortion Plugin Preference located at
C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Plugins\Adobe Lens Correction CS5\Elements.
This may solves your problem.
It may possible since your image open in the correct camera distortion window with different zoom level causes you to look like false crop result
I confess to not being the most tech knowledgeable because I can't get to AppData/etc. I'm afraid I new very basic instructions to try what you have suggested. Thanks.
ps: It is not a zoom level causing it to look like a crop.
yeah, it seems to be cropped.
Correcting 1st reply (-appdata).
Since your plateform is Mac OS
1)Finder "Go" menu >> Go to Folder (command+shift+g)
3)Go to Preferences >> Adobe >> Plugins>> Adobe Lens Correction CS5\Elements.
4)Delete this Preference file manually
5)Restart the application.
Is that a camera raw image?
I wonder if for some reason correct camera distortion is automatically applying corrections
with Auto Geometric Distortion Correction with Auto Image Scaling applied?
(it would have to be reading the camera profile data base for that to happen)
If you were to open the original image and save it as a jpeg with File>Save for Web and then open the saved jpeg
and use the correct camera distortion filter, do you see any difference?
Was the orginal image a camera raw file before saving it as a psd?
I guess you have bridge cs4 and did you run the orginal camera raw file (if it was orginally a camera raw file) through the bridge version of camera raw?
I did the RAW processing in LightRoom and then moved over to PSE11 as a 16-bit PSD, did a little more work on it before making it an 8-bit image for final editing. This is the same procedure I used with PSE9 and never had a problem.
So I just reinstalled PSE11 and the problem is still there. I just want to make sure that this is not just me. Other PSE11 users do not have this problem, right?
I just spent a long chat with an Adobe rep, who suggested the same things Barbara and bridge mastero did. When that didn't work again, he told me that Correct Camera Distortion automatically crops a "little" on PSD and JPEG files. I pointed out that if that's true, PSE11 is inferior to PSE9. His response was that PSE11 was a new program and different from PSE9. He further said that while the filter crops PSD and JPEG files it does not do that to RAW files. I immediately tried a RAW file and the same problem occurred and I told him that. His response was to try to get rid of me as fast as he could, suggesting that I create a new administrator on my computer and log in through that, which would of course have ended the chat. I eventually gave up on him. I've been a long time Adobe customer, starting out with Photoshop Deluxe, then Photoshop Limited Edition and then PSE3, PSE6, PSE9 and PSE11, and this is my first bad experience with Adobe.
