Adobe has released 2 pre-production plug-ins that extend existing functionality inside the Develop Module in Lightroom: Adobe DNG Flat Field and Adobe DNG Recover Edge. These plug-ins are provided free of charge, but without an official support program.
• Adobe DNG Flat Field plug-in in a tool used to correct an optical phenomenon called shading, also known as “lens cast”.
• Adobe DNG Recover Edge plug-in is a tool used to recover image data typically lost when using the in-camera crop mode.
Like other technologies on Adobe Labs, these tools are not finished products, but rather beta or prototype utilities that may work in your particular environment. To download the plug-ins and for more information, please visit Adobe Labs.
