How do you correct lens distortion for jpegs?
I was searching and found info about The Adobe lens profile downloader, but it's no longer available.

I shoot jpeg and raw, but it seems make it pointless shooting jpeg if I can't' correct them in Lr!

Help, thanks.

I opened the jpegs in Fuji's software and there was no distortion. I then opened the files in Photoshop, no distortion. How can Lightroom distort the view?

First, verify that you're viewing the JPEG in LR and not the raw -- it's a surprising common issue. Go to Develop, then type "i" once or twice to bring up the info overlay to show the filename. Is it a .jpg or .raw?
