corrections and exclusive features
Uncover precise details and textures in underexposed and overexposed areas of your image with Smart Lighting, DxO’s exclusive automatic exposure optimization. The information that you thought was absent in your RAW files is instantly revealed, even in strongly backlit areas and in the deepest shadows.
Use the Selective Tone controls to further refine the different brightness ranges, from the darkest to the brightest areas
DxO PhotoLab introduces a new feature, Spot Weighted mode, which provides the same results as as spot metering in camera, but with the added benefit of post-capture fine-tuning capabilities.
Smart Lighting uses face detection to apply an intelligent tone map on the entire image, to better extend the dynamic range, add fill light, and improve contrast while optimizing illumination on faces.
REINFORCE THE POWER OF YOUR IMAGE WITH DxO CLEARVIEW
DxO ClearView automatically boosts local contrast and eliminates the atmospheric haze in landscape photos, as well as the air pollution common to many urban photos. DxO ClearView carefully analyzes the image’s color components and applies the appropriate settings. In just one click, the contrast visibly and noticeably improves.
DxO PhotoLab brings you unrivaled denoising correction on your RAW files: DxO PRIME (Probabilistic RAW Image Enhancement), which efficiently removes noise from images shot in extreme light conditions, while preserving details and recovering accurate colors.
Bokehs and smooth transitions are even better preserved, as are fine details and colors, particularly in the shadows; and textures are conserved to produce images of exceptional quality.
With a newly-optimized algorithm, the New DxO PRIME technology processes your RAW files up 4 times faster than before: in fact, the higher the sensitivity, the bigger the benefit of processing time.
YOUR GEAR DESERVES THE BEST LENS AND CAMERA CORRECTIONS, PERIOD!
We have more than 13 years of expertise and have analyzed more than 40,000 camera and lens combinations in our renowned labs to create the best solutions for fixing optical defects such as lens softness, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and distortion.
THE NEXT LEVEL OF DETAIL
Reveal all the details from your RAW pictures with a brand-new version of Lens Sharpness. Thanks to the meticulous calibration of your gear, you can automatically achieve a never-before-seen level of details, especially on your medium- and high-ISO pictures.
DxO Local Adjustment Tools usefully render your photographic intentions, adding a local counterpart to global corrections. You can now adjust exposure, contrast, microcontrast, vibrancy and saturation; apply ClearView corrections, or even change the white balance in specific areas of your image.
Nik Software U-Point® technology is now fully integrated with DxO PhotoLab’s non-destructive workflow. Use Selection Control Points to adjust your RAW and JPEG files simply by placing a point in the area you want to modify. Our software will automatically detect and adapt to similar colors in the neighborhood, resulting in more accurate and smooth integration.
BRUSH / AUTO MASK
Use the brush selection tool to paint the areas you want to adjust. Change and fine-tune your mask adding, or remove part of the selection before applying your correction. Use the Auto Mask tool to create dynamic masks based on automatic detection of similar colors.
Use the simulated graduated ND filters and unleash your creativity: adjust the exposure of the sky, the contrast, the vibrancy; draw attention to the main subject in your image by making edges darker; add lens blur effect, and much more.
Remove undesired elements from your image: Paint over a problematic area and let the repair tool automatically look for another part of the picture that fits best, smoothly replacing the targeted area. Enjoy fast processing and seamless results as you eliminate dust specks, or even small parts of the picture you don’t want to keep.
