When click "Lens Correction" in Lightroom on the lower right side, will that reduce the resolution of the image at all?

Um, no. It applies a geometry and exposure transformation. The image size does not change.

Why do you ask?

That's what I thought.  No, I had an argument, or a 'disagreement' with another photographer this morning who was so arrogate and even called me a couple names saying I didn't know Lightroom.  He stated that Lens Correction and applying it in LR would reduce the resolution of the image.  I argued it didn't effect it.

Ah. Well, I always apply a lens correction, and the dimensions of the image never change (i keep that info turned on in the upper left corner). I would have gone back with, "show me?"

Yes same here.  Never had any issues with resolution, nor noticed anything else effected when using these tools.  

You now how it is, there are a few things after the incident I wish I had said to him.  :rofl:

LOL I get a kick out of those sort of peeps.  Talking from their butt.  They likely buy the latest camera each time one comes out because the camera is going to take better photos than the 8 month old camera they already have.  :toocrazy:

I've not had any issues when using Lens Correction.  No issues at all, or at least that I have  noticed.

Nope! certainly, It will not affect the resolution. The photographer who argued with you may have not sufficient knowledge about the Lightroom. It's better to keep distance from that type of person who argues without knowing the right thing. If he really knew about that then he or she should have made the point clear in a practical way. Just leave it.
