Developed by the DxO company as part of its suite, DxO ViewPoint offers a robust, reliable, and versatile environment to eliminate distortion, modify perspective, add effects, and correct stretching. Try it, and you will immediately understand how powerful it is.
What is DxO ViewPoint?
DxO ViewPoint is a surprisingly efficient image editing software designed to achieve geometric perfection in all your images and photos. Indeed, it gives you total control and can adjust perspectives, warp specific areas, correct wide-angle stretching, and fix distortions for finely perfect results. It is part of the very successful DxO tool suite, including DxO PureRAW and DxO FilmPack.
What are the key features of DxO ViewPoint?
- ReShape: Thanks to a stunning warping tool, choose a distortion grid, and drag points to adjust your image very finely. Once you try it, you will see how easily you can fix imperfections and balance individual elements' positions.
- Distortion correction: Eliminate image distortion quickly, which is especially useful when using wide-angle lenses. Built to remove distortions and preserve the image's natural proportions, the DxO ViewPoint's Volume Deformation gives spectacular results.
- Perspective adjustment: This fantastic feature allows you to change the image's perspective, which is pretty helpful in adjusting images taken from an oblique angle. Hence, independently from the subject, you can choose among four methods, including Auto, 8 points, Vertical & Horizontal, or Rectangle. The result is bluffing.
- Adjust level: You can easily change your photo rotation angle and directly control it from the cropping box. That is very useful for reframing your photos with high precision (getting straight horizons in your photos is now a piece of cake).
- Flip & rotate: Effortlessly mirror your images horizontally or vertically with a single click.
- Artistic effects: Apply bokeh effects to get a shallow depth of field, or simulate a tilt-shift lens through the Miniature Effect tool to reproduce a tiny world. Those two effects are useful to push the viewer's eye where you want.
- Smooth workflow: There is no disruption to your workflow. You can use DxO ViewPoint as a standalone solution and as a tool palette within DxO PhotoLab, but also directly from your favorite solutions as a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom Classic, and Adobe Photoshop Elements. As it comes with a slick interface, it offers a clear display with powerful features.
- Format compatibility: As a standalone solution, it supports JPEG and TIFF (8 or 16 bits) up to 200 Megapixels in RGB mode. As a plug-in in another application, it can also handle RAW files.
