About this mod

Standalone program for improving No Man's Sky's wonky VR photo mode screenshots, which are stretched by default.
With options for both replacement and renaming, this program allows you to safely fix batches of images.

Permissions and credits
By default, No Man's Sky's VR photo mode screenshots appear to be stretched horizontally. By changing their aspect ratio to 1:1 (square) I've discovered that the shots look much more natural.
This Program has become redundant because the NMS devs recently patched the issue! I will keep the repository up as a record, but this tool no longer provides a utility for players.
For evidence that this tool is genuinely making the screenshots look more like the in-game environments they're capturing; notice that in the VR originals, perfect circles are stretched into ovals, but when edited via this tool they return to perfect circles.
(See examples in the media tab)

The base program is a simple script to perform this operation on a batch of images.
In addition, I created a nifty GUI version with a few useful options, allowing you to rename converted files to your liking while preventing accidental replacement of originals.

Big thanks to my friend hilightnotes, creator of the fantastic NMS "Clean HUD and roomscale VR" mod.
He brought this issue up to me, provided me with all the NMS screenshots, and helped me set up this page. Great dude.
