I just read in a pre-release review that Luminar with Libraries coming out in December will auto-correct lens distortion upon opening a RAW to edit (and with no way to disable this action):
Terrible idea, Skylum. Don't make the same mistake ON1 did by auto-correcting lenses by default. I for one don't want lens distortion to be corrected by default. It stretches and resamples image corners that are often better left as is.
In general what photographers want is more user-control, not hard-wired Skylum defaults. For example, I prefer to correct only lens chromatic aberration while leaving vignetting and lens distortion untouched. I should be able to set distortion, vignetting, and CA correction options independently in my global preferences at a minimum (and optimally even by lens and camera at some stage).
Until then, please fix the distortion auto-correction to "off" before launch!
