Nik Software’s U Point technology is now a part of DxO PhotoLab’s non-destructive workflow, allowing you to fully express your original intentions by adding local adjustments as well as automatic corrections to your RAW and JPEG files.
DxO PhotoLab lets you significantly reduce noise in your RAW files. DxO’s exclusive denoising technology effectively decreases noise in photos taken in extreme lighting conditions while also preserving details and color.
Smooth transitions between sharp and blurred elements are still preserved, as are fine details and colors, particularly in the shadows. Textures are preserved as well, resulting in exceptionally high-quality images.
With its newly-optimized algorithm, DxO PhotoLab’s PRIME technology processes your RAW files up four times faster than in previous versions of DxO OpticsPro. In fact, the higher the sensitivity value, the faster the processing time.
Reveal details and textures in underexposed or overexposed areas with DxO Smart Lighting. This feature instantly brings out details you thought were missing from your RAW files—even with strong backlighting. Use the Selective Tone tool to fine-tune the various luminosity ranges—from the darkest to the brightest areas in your image.
With Spot Weighted mode, you can adjust your corrections based on specific areas in your image. Smart Lighting determines the appropriate action by analyzing faces or areas that you specify in manual mode and applies the action to the entire image. This feature takes away the guessing game—you can push the sliders as far as you want without making your subjects appear unnatural.
DxO ClearView automatically removes atmospheric haze from landscape photos as well as smog from images of urban settings. DxO ClearView also drastically increases local contrast by precisely analyzing the image’s color components and applying the most appropriate corrections.
In the more than thirteen years since our founding, we have analyzed over 40,000 camera/lens combinations in our laboratories to create the best possible solutions for correcting optical defects, including lack of sharpness, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and distortion.
