I still have ViewPoint v3 installed as a standalone on my W10 machine, from the time before I upgraded my PL license from standard to Elite. Now I have PL4 Elite installed, do I need to keep the separate copy of ViewPoint, or can I uninstall it? I have a relatively small SSD from which to run all my software …
I’ve used PhotoLab Elite for years without separate installation of ViewPoint and FilmPack. VP and FP functionality is built into PhotoLab and can be used if the activation code of the respective product has been entered.
The integration into PL is quite good. You may only miss the little lenses for the point adjustments, but this is a small disadvantage.
I think you can uninstall the Viewpoint solo install. The activation inside PL is easy.
ViewPoint standalone must be updated to support new camera / lens combinations for distortion correction if required. In this case, it must also be updated if it is used as a PS or LR plug-in.
If you only use ViewPoint integrated with PL, there is no obligation to update VP: PL updates provide this.
Go to the “Help” menu and scroll down to where it says something like “Activate Viewpoint 3”, click on that and enter your license code and you’re good to go. Sorry but no screenshot available as the entry disappears after you activate. Also why I don’t remember exactly what it says.
