DxO Labs has announced the immediate availability of DxO Perspective for Mac OS X, its exclusive application designed to correct perspective and horizon problems. DxO is distributed in Canada by DayMen. Thanks to its system of applying anchor points directly on images, DxO Perspective offers a simple and innovative solution that puts its powerful geometric corrections into the hands of all photographers, even beginners. Indispensable for architectural and landscape photography!
DxO Perspective is available exclusively in the Mac App Store as a free download through November 3, 2013.
Easy yet powerful perspective corrections
In architectural or urban photography, depending on the position of the photographer with respect to the scene, buildings’ vertical and horizontal lines can lose their parallelism. With DxO Perspective, making buildings plumb again has never been easier: users simply place the anchor points directly on the image along the lines they want to correct, and unnatural façades instantly return to their original appearance.
DxO Perspective corrects all kinds of perspective problems, even the most complex. Using its Rectangle tool, when a photo contains two perspective flaws, DxO Perspective’s Rectangle tool immediately reestablishes a full-frontal view of the object — essential when shooting a photo of a poster or painting! In 8-point correction mode, DxO Perspective handles even more complex perspectives: the independent placing of horizontal and vertical guidelines provides highly precise corrections on multiple planes.
With just one line, DxO Perspective also restores balance and authenticity to landscape photos by perfectly straightening a slanted horizon.
Regardless of the corrections applied, DxO Perspective keeps photos full-frame, thanks to its automatic cropping feature that optimizes the visible field. Users can also customize the framing to highlight a particular element. A composition grid facilitates precise adjustments.
Serious photographers can also adjust the intensity of the correction and the horizontal/vertical ratio according to their own tastes.
