Fix skewed perspectives
Are you an urban explorer? Do you enjoy photographing buildings and monuments, but are frustrated by the distorted vertical and horizontal lines in your images when you use a wide-angle lens? With DxO ViewPoint, you can manually or automatically fix skewed perspectives and automatically crop the image while maximizing the visible field.
Auto (NEW)Automatically correct every skewed perspective in your photos taken with a wide-angle lens.
Vertical and horizontalThe placement of vertical and horizontal reference lines lets you correct the perspective in multiple depths of field with unparalleled precision.
RectangleWhen an object in your photo has two skewed perspectives (vertical and horizontal), you can place four anchor points and immediately reestablish a frontal view of it.
8 pointsCorrect even more complex perspective errors with the same flawless results.
Correct volume deformation
Along the edges of photos taken with a wide-angle lens, bodies are stretched out and faces lengthened due to the phenomenon of “volume deformation.” With just one click, DxO ViewPoint identifies the deformation and restores the subject to its natural shape.
This exclusive DxO Labs feature, especially useful for group and portrait photos, perfectly addresses this type of distortion.
You can also make changes manually with the advanced controls: regulate the intensity of the correction and select the visible field in your image to create perfectly composed photos.
No curve is too complex
DxO ViewPoint uses a sophisticated tool to correct the various types of distortion created by your lenses. Whether barrel, pincushion, or fisheye distortion, no unwanted curve in your image will go uncorrected, after which you can easily apply the perspective tools.
Designed in our laboratories using an exclusive calibration process, DxO Optics Modules contain an extensive amount of data about the exact characteristics of each lens and camera body, providing you with corrections that are perfectly suited to your equipment.
DxO Labs’ sophisticated processing engine allows you to flawlessly reproduce the progressive quality of a blur and even replicate bokeh shapes. Simulate the effects created by reducing the depth of field in an image, which normally requires using an expensive tilt-shift lens. Images retain their relief—especially when it comes to highlights.
Straighten the horizon
Rebalance your landscape photographs by automatically leveling a slanted horizon line.
Keep your photos full-framed no matter what corrections you apply. Whether you're correcting perspective, straightening the horizon, or changing the point of view, the automatic crop feature will optimize the visible field. You can also manually customize the way you crop the image.
An elegant and intuitive interface
The DxO ViewPoint interface features a minimalistic design, intuitive comparison tools, clearly-displayed perspective and horizon correction lines, and easily-identifiable settings that let you switch from one tool to another in an instant.
The Loupe tool gives you incredibly precise control over the horizon and perspective controls, allowing you to fine-tune the corrections you apply to your photos.
DxO ViewPoint can be used as a standalone application or as a plugin for DxO OpticsPro®. It can also be used as an external editor with Adobe® Photoshop®, Adobe® Photoshop Elements®, and Adobe® Lightroom®.
