I am often asked about reviewing focus points in Lightroom, until now it hasn’t been possible. Canon’s own DIgital Photo Professional (DPP) does provide the feature but in general DPP doesn’t provide nearly the power or efficiency that Lightroom provides.

Chris Reimold has created a FREE plugin that now allows you to see focus point information.

Can be useful for diagnosing focusing issues or satisfying your curiosity.

 Shadow Riders - Now I kinda wish I had photoshopped cowboy hat shadows for each of us! From family adventures in Saguaro National Park, Arizona
 Menzie's Penstemon or as the nerds say - Penstemon davidsonii ;) Found these little purple flowers on the way down from Paradise in Mt Rainier National Park and thought they made a nice foreground to the beautiful and still snowcapped peak in the distance. Captured with the GH5 and 12-35 f/2.8 Lens #lumixloungegh3

  1. This is also available in Aperture, with no plug-in. Too bad that Apple decided to abandon their photographers. It would surely been a serious competition.

  2. This is exactly what I need right now! I usually use ZoomBrowserEX, but it doesn’t show focus points in anything but JPG. Lately, the bird shots I’ve done have been in RAW only, because it doubles the burst rate compared to JPG+RAW. So, I’m assuming this works for RAW? I’m going to download it and try it now.

  3. No Photoshop plugin? Maybe this is because it only works on RAW images? I am a PaintShop Pro and Rawtherapee user and don’t really want to use Lightroom. I’m surprised that this plugin isn’t available in a Photoshop-compatible version.
