Download

The download includes a trial version of PTLens that is valid for 10 images. Purchase a license to convert the trial version to fully functional software. The license is valid for both the plug-in and standalone application, on all your computers (Mac or PC), and remains valid for all future releases.

The following special instructions may apply:

Version numbers do not change when new cameras and lenses are added to the database. If PTLens indicates your camera or lens is not in the database first download and install again. If there's still a problem you can help. Calibrations for cameras and lenses are based on images submitted by users. You submit the images and I'll do the calibration for free.

Hint. In PTLens click on a text box associated with a slider and rotate your mouse wheel. For faster action press the Shift key while scrolling.

Manual. The manual contains detailed information for all features. For a brief overview read the following section: Getting Started > Quick Start. On Windows choose Help > PTLens Help. On the Mac choose Help > PTLens Help for the standalone version, or click on the Help button in the plug-in and external editor.
