Improved U Point technology Exclusive
U Point selection assistance technology is fully integrated with DxO PhotoLab via its multi-setting equalizer interface, allowing you to make intuitive and effective local adjustments to complement the software’s automatic corrections.
DxO PhotoLab intuits what you want and automatically and intelligently extends your selection to areas that share the same characteristics within an adjustable radius. Your adjustments will only be added to the specific places you want.
Apply Graduated Filters to balance the exposure in your image, add depth to the sky, or draw the eye to your subject by darkening or blurring surrounding areas. Just like the Control Points used with U Point technology, you can also use the multi-setting equalizer.
The Brush tool lets you create a retouching mask and correct a specific area with a high degree of precision by adjusting its opacity. The Automatic Mask can even automatically detect colors that are similar to the ones you initially selected.
Are features like a mote of dust, a pebble, or a bird in the sky drawing attention away from your subject and breaking up your image? The smart Automatic Repair tool replaces these elements with a matching area in the image, such as a part of the sky or sand.
DxO PRIME, the ultimate denoising technology Exclusive
Push your equipment to the limit thanks to DxO’s industry-leading denoising technology, DxO PRIME. Remove noise from your high ISO images without loosing any details or colors.
The technology has even been optimized to process RAW files at high speed. The greater the sensitivity, the more time you save.
DxO ClearView Plus local contrast optimization Exclusive
This exclusive feature increases local contrast after thoroughly analyzing the colormetric components of your image. This technology makes your image more radiant without creating a halo effect around drastic transitions.
Unparalleled optical corrections Exclusive
DxO PhotoLab 2 rounds out the software’s existing filters and image processing tools with the new PhotoLibrary feature.
The PhotoLibrary makes sorting and organizing images a cinch. Instantly locate the photos you’re searching for thanks to the dynamic interpretation search function, which suggests relevant results on the fly.
ADVANCED COLOR MANAGEMENT
If you want to control your entire graphics chain, you can choose to keep the same color signature from one device to another by importing the profiles you create in calibration programs into DxO PhotoLab 2.
DxO Smart Lighting
In addition, the Selective Tone tool lets you independently adjust different brightness ranges ranging from the darkest to the brightest levels, thereby giving you more freedom and precision when lightening shadows or recovering details in bright areas.
Spot Weighted Corrections
DxO Smart Lighting analyzes and accounts for these areas before applying corrections to the entire image. As a result, your backlit portraits will look brighter while still looking natural.
