The latest major upgrade of Picture Window Pro, Version 5.0, has been announced by Digital Light & Color, offering a host of new features such as Color Remap for changing selected colors and 2 and 3 Zone transformations which lets you divide images by their tonality ranges and control contrast, saturation and brightness of each range independently.
There are many other changes and improvements. In all, ten transformations have been enhanced including improved HDR, a new Sharpen method.
The Raw Converter is completely new in this release. It gives the user full control over color, brightness, exposure. It also includes Sharpening, Highlight Recovery, Noise Reduction and bad pixel. The converter creates sidecar files which preserve the settings used for opening each image.
Picture Window Pro 5.0 is a full featured, professional image editing package available for $90. If you donâ€™t need Color Management, 48 bit image support and Raw conversion, Picture Window Proâ€™s little brother, Picture Window 5.0 regular edition retails for only $50.
