And this is how DxO fixes the fattened people at the edges:

DxO Viewpoint is built into PhotoLab, and allows the wide angle effect of fattened people at the edges to be automatically fixed

Viewpoint is a separate program that installs as both a plugin for programs and also available as a standalone program for jpegs and 8/16 bit tiffs.

Just now I opened Viewpoint as standalone and it wanted to update to V3.3. I don't get any auto update messages for Viewpoint when opening Photolab. User manual at https://download-center.dxo.com/Support/docs/ViewPoint_v3/user-guide/VP3_manual_EN.pdf

No, you wouldn't, because is built right into PhotoLab; it's not a plug-in. PhotoLab doesn't have a plug-in architecture. So, every copy of PhotoLab has DxO ViewPoint and FilmPack built in, but they only become available if you have licences for them.

So, every time you update PhotoLab, you get the latest ViewPoint right inside PL. There's no need to update the separate program if you don't use it much (as neither of us do). It's completely separate to the stand-alone VP program and the plug-ins used in, say, Photoshop.
