DxO Optics Pro v5 for Windows Now Available

DxO Optics Pro v5

DxO Optics Pro v5 for Windows is now available, offering a new RAW Engine, dust/blemish removal, improved user interface, support for Canon EOS 40D as well as expanded Adobe Photoshop Lightroom compatibility and an interesting new ‘Snapshot’ feature.

Headlining the new features in DxO Optics Pro v5 is a brand new RAW conversion engine which the company says is a breakthrough demosaicing algorithm that produces images with much more detail and fewer unwanted artifacts. Also, DxO Optics Pro v5 now applies its noise reduction techniques prior to demosaicing — before noise has a chance to be amplified by the RAW conversion process and become obtrusive.

Another feature in Version 5 is enhanced compatibility with Lightroom. DxO Optics Pro v5 can now read from and interact with image libraries from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, providing a more fluid workflow between these two popular applications.

The new ‘Snapshot’ feature allows users to create several ‘virtual versions’ of an image to which they can apply different DxO Optics Pro corrections for processing.
