      I will try it, but i usually photograph in jpeg, i never tried raw. I am using Windows XP so that should not be the reason why ptshift does not work on CS4. Many thankx

      No, the DNG converter converts from camera raw to DNG raw, nothing else.

      Depends. If the CA is considerably larger than the bayer pattern the
      correction can be applied to jpegs with almost similar effect. Only if
      the CA is of the strange type (see
      http://wiki. panotools. org/TCA#Strange_ Example ) it is not correctable..

      PTShift *is* the interactive GUI for panotools radial shift ;-)

      That's true most of the time. It does a linear correction only opposed
      to radial shift, which allows for a polynomial correction curve.
      However, a linear correction is sufficient in almost all cases.

      There is BTW a (command line) tool in the hugin package called
      tca_correct which allows for fully automatic determination of polynomial
      TCA correction parameters.

      best regards
