It has a single license for four applications:
* A version integrated in DxO PhotoLab (and DxO OpticsPro)
* An independent version (standalone)
* An external module (plug-in) for Photoshop, Photoshop Elements and Lightroom
* Modul for Nik Collection; Perspective efex
* In the integrated version in PhotoLab, the tools are available via two palettes.
– “Geometry” palette: Horizon, cropping and distortion settings (basic in PhotoLab)
– “ViewPoint” palette: The other settings specific to ViewPoint
Only this version benefits from parametric processing without leaving the raw workflow.
Which allows it to resume corrections after registration.
* The ViewPoint independent version opens JPEG or TIFF images (8 and 16 bits).
It is convenient for correcting direct DCs JPEG files and in the absence of software supporting the plug-in..
* How to Develop a Photo and Correct Perspective with ViewPoint, Plug-In for Adobe:

ViewPoint and Nik Perspective Efex
The Nik Collection suite by DxO integrates the Perspective Efex module, usable in independent version (standalone) or as a plug-in for Photoshop or Lightroom.
This module is directly derived from ViewPoint : the functionalities and the interface are identical. Consequently, this tutorial also applies to Perspective Efex.
The tutorial illustrations are made with ViewPoint standalone to facilitate reading for those not used to the PhotoLab interface.
