ArcSoft PhotoStudio Darkroom 1.5 features non-destructive image processing tools for adjusting white balance, exposure, de-noise, hue and saturation, brightness and contrast, and curves and levels, and for applying color effects such as black & white and sepia. In short, it wants to be a complete image enhancement software for professional photographers and photo hobbyists.
The new version more than doubles the number of RAW formats supported, and allows users to import photos directly into the application from a camera or removable drive.
Arcsoft said a complete set of lens and chromatic correction tools for fixing barrel, pincushion, and perspective distortions and color fringing issues are also included, as well as correction tools for red-eye, spots, and patches. A “recipe” feature lets users apply the processing performed on one image to other images with a single click.
