    In looking through a photographer's images I like (Scott Mitchell's photos of the Giro D'Italia shot for Team Sky Procycling Team Sky | Pro Cycling | Giro d'Italia | Latest News | Scott Mitchell - Giro stage 20 ) it appears that he is adding distortion to his photos by shooting with a DSLR in the standard 3/2 aspect ratio and than compressing the entire image into a 4/3 aspect ratio. I think its an interesting effect that works for the types of photos he takes. Is this something that can be done easily in LR3? I know that its easy to crop to various aspect ratios in LR3, but can you actually distort the image like you could in Photoshop?

    No. you need a program like Photoshop to do this.
