Dedicated to correcting geometrical distortions in images, ViewPoint 3 from DxO is an intuitive software designed to duplicate many of the functions of a view camera or tilt-shift lens during post-production. Automatic perspective correction helps to expedite the process of fixing keystoning and straightening both vertical and horizontal lines in compositions, and manual control is also afforded for more refined, personal control over how photographs look. This process is also used in creative terms for producing a miniature effect, which simulates the use of tilt while shooting to generate dramatic selective focus effects to portray subjects as if they were significantly smaller in scale. Making use of DxO's vast testing library of camera and lens combinations, ViewPoint can also make use of specific Optics Modules in order to reduce optical distortions. This third edition of ViewPoint has also been enhanced with an updated control-set for working with anchor points while manually adjusting an image, and a minimalist user interface avails intuitive access to all editing controls. The software can be used as a standalone application, or can also function as a plug-in for DxO OpticsPro, Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom, or Apple Aperture.
Automated perspective corrections can be made with a single click for fast and simple editing, and these automated processes can also be used in conjunction with manually fine-tuning imagery to present a starting point from which to apply further or more personalized adjustments. Automatic horizon correction can also be used to adjust crooked horizon lines in order to give a straightened appearance. Manual fine-tuning can also be used to adjust the final result.
Additionally, automated corrections also let you correct distorted subjects near the edges of an image taken with a wide-angle lens, allowing you to attain a more natural appearance void of unwanted optical distortion.
In addition to correcting perspective distortions, ViewPoint can also be used on optical variants of distortion, such as pincushion and barrel types. These distortions can be corrected automatically with recognized camera/lens combinations supported by DxO Optics Modules, or manual correction is also possible for fine-tuning the results or for adjusting images made with legacy or non-supported camera/lens combinations.
For more creative applications, the perspective control tools can also be used in conjunction with selective blurring to produce a miniature effect. Similar in effect to only using the tilt portion of a view camera, this tool lets you achieve noticeably shallow, selective depth of field in order to make subjects appear as if they were miniature.
Manual control over keystone corrections is a core function of ViewPoint, and an improved tool set in this version helps to refine accuracy when making perspective adjustments. A loupe tool helps when placing critical anchor points and holding the Shift key down while making adjustments slows the anchor point movement down for easier control. These controls also work when making keyboard-based adjustments for faster fine-tuning.
An updated user interface design features a minimalist aesthetic for faster, more intuitive navigation and access to tools. Simplified zoom tools have been incorporated as well as a before/after comparison tool, and all tools can now be validated with the Enter key. Additionally, perspective and horizon adjustment lines are now visible against any color of background for easier recognition.
ViewPoint 3 can be used as a standalone application or as a plug-in for DxO OpticsPro 11; Adobe Photoshop CS3-CS6 and CC-CC 2015; Photoshop Elements 9-13; Photoshop Lightroom 3-6 and CC 2015; and Apple Aperture 3.
