Dxo Press Release
DxO ViewPoint v1.2.1 now compatible with Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5
Special offers on all DxO Labs products through July 31, 2013
July 10, 2013 - DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO ViewPoint v1.2.1, its software solution dedicated to correcting distortions caused by wide-angle lenses and to redressing keystoning. This upgrade means that DxO ViewPoint is now fully compatible with Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom 5.
DxO ViewPoint v1.2.1 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 v1.2.1 provides simple visual tools as well as advanced controls for applying spectacular corrections with unparalleled accuracy.
With just one license, DxO ViewPoint v1.2.1 can be used as a plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, and as a standalone application.
Used as a plugin, DxO ViewPoint v1.2.1 integrates perfectly with Adobe Photoshop CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6, and CC, as well as with Lightroom 3, 4, and 5. The software allows photographers to preserve their usual work environment and habits while enhancing their Adobe® solution. Among other things, DxO ViewPoint v1.2.1’s ability to save correction settings provides an extremely smooth workflow: users can save their settings to re-use the same corrections in just one click, even after backtracking and changing their image in the host application.
As a standalone application, DxO ViewPoint v1.2.1 lets users directly apply their corrections to their photos in just a few clicks.
