If you use Nikon View NX 2 you can see were your focus point was on your image. Do you know if the same is possible with ACR / CS6.

I don't think so. I can see my focus points in DPP from Canon but not in CS4.

Malsh on DPReview may have a solution for you.



So, if anyone wants to try this...

I have a prototype of a CS4/5 script that will display the selected focus point from the EXIF data.

This was rather more complex than I originally anticipated. First, the specific EXIF fields required are not exposed in PS and I had to enlist the help of Exiftool. In addition, rotated images can be a real problem once they have been edited. Frequently, when the image is rotated per the EXIF, the Orientation tag is modified thus making it impossible to determine the original orientation of the camera. In situations that are likely to be problematic, the script prompts the user to confirm the orientation.

The script is currently Windows-only but a Mac user with minimal scripting experience can probably port it over quite easily. Also, this version has not been fully tested -- it's really intended to validate the overall concept. With that said:

1. You will need to install the Exiftool executable available here:

http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/

2. Next, install ShowFocusPoint.jsx in your Photoshop scripts folder. The script is here but note that you'll need to rename the file to drop the .txt suffix:

http://www.malch.com/nikon/ShowFocusPoint.jsx.txt

3. Edit the script (first few lines) to set:

The path to your Exiftool executable

The path to a TEMP folder

A font (if the default Arial font is not available on your system).

Post any comments/complaints here or email me directly (address in in my profile).

Many thanks for the info but I am on Macs so I will have to leave even if I was on pc that is way above my head. if I want to find my focus point I will have too drop in View NX2 just to find it.
