DxO Labs announced the immediate availability of DxO ViewPoint v1.2, the new version of its software dedicated to correcting distortions caused by wide-angle lenses and to redressing keystoning and other perspective problems. DxO ViewPoint v1.2 offers a new save feature that provides a more fluid workflow for users of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, and has added more sample images to help less-experienced users get started more quickly.
DxO ViewPoint easily restores the natural shapes of subjects located on the edges of images a distortion known as volume anamorphosis and accurately corrects keystoning and other perspective problems frequently found in architectural and landscape photos. Based on DxO Labs exclusive geometrical corrections, DxO ViewPoint provides simple visual tools as well as advanced controls for applying spectacular corrections with unparalleled accuracy.
DxO ViewPoint v1.2 provides a new feature that allows photographers to save the correction settings for any given image and to reapply them later. In the plug-in versions for Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, this feature provides a new, more fluid workflow: photographers can reapply their corrections in just a single click even after going back and modifying their image in their host application.
In the standalone version, this feature significantly improves productivity, in that corrections can be saved and applied successively to other photos with identical problems.DxO ViewPoint can be used as a standalone application for Mac and Windows and as a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6, and for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 and 4.
This upgrade is free for all owners of DxO ViewPoint v1.0. A fully-functional trial version of DxO ViewPoint v1.2, good for one month, is available on the DxO Labs website.
