software that will “flatten” or adjust for barrel distortion?

Hello
Could someone please direct to some software that will “flatten” or adjust for barrel distortion? I am pretty sure I read somewhere on this forum (my searches haven’t found it yet) about some software, not DxO, that works with any lens to fix barrel distortion in a picture. It had something to do with printing off a test page, taking a picture of the test page and then the software will build a profile to fix photos for that specific lens.
Thank You in advance
Barry

I would like to know about that software too! I know that the author of PTLens will construct a lens profile if you submit a proper photo to him. But, I haven't heard of a DIY version of a correction software app that will do it.

If you want post a photo you want corrected, and I'll see what I can do in ACDSee pro.

They have a barrel distortion feature that I've never had to try
So I'm kind of curious what it can do.

It didn't even compare, your photo is 2000% better than ACDSee did
