I would thinking the other day. DXO lens correction and ability to show full image with correction but also with empty edges is great. And often going to Photoshop is required to fill in those empty edges and make the image utilize maximum of what camera could capture. But I was thinking, would it be possible at some point in the future to see native DXO feature to fill in areas that are outside the corrected image, so we don’t have to go to Photoshop for it?
Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE) is an advanced panoramic image stitcher created by the Microsoft Research Interactive Visual Media Group. It creates a high-resolution panorama by combining a set of overlapping photographs of a scene shot from a single camera location. ICE is no longer supported but it is avilable for download.
It had a feature similar to Adobe Content Aware Fill, called Automatic image completion
ICE can now fill in any missing pixels around the edges of your panorama, making a smooth boundary even in cases where you missed a shot.
When stitching panoramas it worked as good or better than Adobe Content Aware Fill and this was many years ago. I’m sure DXO could do it in the future and it would be very useful for those black areas after lens correction that would than avoid having to crop in and lose some of the image. I think this would compliment already great features DXO offers for lens correction.
