09 The final crop
Lastly, I’ve got just a little too much image on the left side and at the top, so I’m using the Crop tool to remove these unwanted areas. I’ve got the Aspect Ratio set to Unconstrained so that I can make the cropped image any shape I like.
10 The finished photograph
Perspective corrections are often rather subtle, and improve pictures in ways that aren’t immediately obvious – they just look neater and better. DxO ViewPoint 2 has done a good job here, and it’s really useful to be able to do this from within Aperture, which doesn’t have any perspective correction tools itself.
I hope the automatic lens correction options will get sorted out soon, though, because that would be my main reason for buying this software. I want them to work from within Aperture, and I don’t want to have to locate my original images manually just so that ViewPoint 2 can look up the EXIF data it needs.
