The aptly named Show Focus Points, is a small, but extremely handy Lightroom plugin that allows you to quickly display the focus points your camera used to take each of your photographs. A feature that could vastly improve editing time, especially when working with a focus stack. As Gannon from over at PetaPixel points out, having an option to display focus points seems so obvious, it’s a wonder Lightroom hasn’t built the feature into it’s module in the first place.
Luckily, Chris Reimold, the brain behind the plugin, has released his little gem of a tool to public beta. You can download a copy of it for free by visiting the Show Focus Points website. Reimold only asks that users report bugs to him, so that he can continue to improve the plugin.
At the time of writing, Show Focus Points hasn’t been tested to work with a super extensive list of camera bodies, but a lot of the most popular Canon and Nikon bodies have been tested to work.
If you use the plugin and can verify other camera models to work with it, be sure to let Chris know, and us too, by sharing your findings in the comments section below!
