It seems that there are two ways to reduce chromatic aberration - buy new very expensive lenses or use software.

It also seems that there is a choice in software. Apparently Nikon Capture and Photo Shop will correct for chromatic aberration - and for good measure barrel distortion.

And I found a link to a free download of software that is supposed to do the same things also. (http:/www.logicaldesigns.com/Download1.htm)

I have a Panasonic DMC FZ3 with a Raynox 2020 PRO soon to arrive.

Does anybody have experience with this kind of software? I haven't any experience using editing software yet, but the free download seems to fit my requirements. Evidently the software doesn't insist on RAW files but will work on TIFF also.

Even though the price of the one package is free, undoubtedly I will need to spend a lot of time figuring stuff out. Does anybody have experience using software correction and has it been worth the investment in time and money? Thanks in advance for advice for this newbie.

Thanks, the lack of replies has convinced me - keep my life simple and not worry about chromatic aberrations. They are not a big problem, just show when the subject is backlit.
