PTLens is a program that fixes the aberrations and distortions on photos due to the curvature of lenses. The program can be a plug-in for photo editing programs, such as Panorama Tools and Photoshop, but it can also be used as a standalone application. PTLens comes with profile settings for different camera brands and models like Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Fujifilm, and Konica. Main features of the program include pincushion and barrel distortion correction, removal of vignetting on photos, fixing of chromatic aberration, and fixing of fisheye distortion.

To import photos to the program, users can select the Directory button at the upper right portion of the main window. Users can then navigate to the folder the photos can be found. After selecting an image, users can correct the image by using the sliders, option buttons, and the different settings that can be found on the main interface. There are also correction sliders for the chromatic aberration, perspective, and the vignetting. The program also has a reset button for undoing all the changes made to the photo.

Other features of the application are the following:
• Multi-language interface
• Support for multiprocessing
• Compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit
• Comes with lightroom external editor
• Wide selection of camera lens profiles
