What do you like best?
DxO ViewPoint corrects perspective distortion in photos. It does this very well. With just a few clicks, it can fix anything. In fact, I’ve got in the habit of just running photos through the package by default, even if the distortion problems aren’t that obvious, because it nearly always makes them look so much better.
Photoshop already has distortion tools built in but this is far more powerful. And DxO View Point is always releasing updates for the tools, so they continue to get even better. Better yet, there is even a Photoshop plugin so you can easily switch from Photoshop to DxO View Point without having to reopen your document.
What do you dislike?
I don’t really have any complaints. Sometimes with some very complex images, it can be a little on the slow side, but that’s very rare and it’s totally understandable.
Recommendations to others considering the product
DxO offer a very generous 30 day evaluation period that works exactly like the full program, so you can try it out to see if it is right for you.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I use it to improve the look of photos by removing distortions. Sometimes it even works very well for radically changing a photo to suit my needs. For example, I recently had a photo of a landscape which I was using as a background for a double page spread. However, the photo wasn’t large enough to fit the page. With DxO View Point I was able to make it fit and it looked a lot better then when I edited it in Photoshop alone.
