NASA Insight (as other past and future missions) provide distorted images. Which site can I use to automatically fix such distortion, without downloading and processing each single image I am interested on?

This site looks promising but I can't get suitable prameters for Insight images: https://jywarren.github.io/fisheyegl/example/#a=0.853&b=1.243&Fx=0.29&Fy=0.18&scale=1.029&x=0.908&y=0.915

It would be also interesting to be able to reproject such images in equirectangular projection, as such projection can be seen on VR viewers and panorama viewers and even directly uploaded to facebook for immediate sharing and to use the phone gyro+accel to view around them.

Insight nasa images: https://mars.nasa.gov/insight/multimedia/raw-images/?order=sol+desc%2Cdate_taken+desc&per_page=50&page=0&mission=insight

    $\begingroup$ Although I can't speak for @GdD and the other close voters, I would assume that editing the question to something like "What are the lens distortion parameters of the InSight cameras?" would probably make it on-topic here. $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 4, 2018 at 23:37

    $\begingroup$ @GdD a helpful edit is less punative and more productive than the insta-close. With the new edit and the photography tag and its definition, can we classify this as "about space exploration" and therefore as a keeper? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The question said "how do I edit distortion in photos" @uhoh, the edited version is very far from the original and I am not sure it is actually the original intent. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @uhoh, your comments are not constructive. I didn't see any space content or a way to salvage the question so I voted to close, that's all. If jumpjack is happy with the edits and people have answers then that's cool by me. $\endgroup$
