New automatic perspective and horizon correction tools are complemented by a miniature effect that perfectly mimics tilt shift lenses
 
Special discounts on all DxO software through December 4, 2016

 
PARIS—November 16, 2016—DxO, a world leader in digital imaging technologies, announces a major update to DxO ViewPoint, its simple but powerful software that automatically corrects problems inherent in photographs taken with wide-angle lenses. DxO ViewPoint 3 leverages DxO’s advanced image science to automatically correct skewed perspectives and horizons with a single click, making the process quick and easy. The update also introduces a brand new tool that produces a remarkable miniature effect, the first software of its kind to perfectly replicate the popular look made famous by tilt shift lenses.
 
DxO ViewPoint is simple, but powerful image processing software for Mac and Windows that thousands of photographers rely on for photos taken with their wide-angle lenses because of its ability to fix even the most complex perspective problems, as well as restore the natural shape to subjects situated on the edges of photos. DxO ViewPoint benefits from the automatic corrections provided by DxO Optics Modules, developed by exacting laboratory analysis of thousands of camera and lens combinations.
 
The existing perspective correction tools have been dramatically enhanced with an innovative, fully automatic mode that can instantly correct geometric distortion, straighten both horizontal and vertical lines, and automatically crop images, effectively eliminating keystoning while preserving the maximum information in the picture. The new auto horizon correction tool is equally efficient at correcting skewed landscape and architectural images. A single click detects the most relevant straight lines in the image, which are analyzed to determine the correct horizon.
 
“DxO ViewPoint has become an essential tool for me when photographing with my wide-angle lenses, which by their very nature induce all manner of odd deformations,” said architectural photographer, Luca Nicolao. “Its tools let me easily correct for distortions and keystoning, allowing me to achieve a much more natural composition in my images.”
 
DxO ViewPoint 3 also adds an innovative and useful new tool that perfectly simulates the depth-of-field reduction that’s identical to the type of creative looks that previously required the purchase of costly and tricky tilt shift lenses. To replicate the miniature look, DxO ViewPoint 3 displays the location and intensity of two blur gradients which the user can adjust symmetrically or asymmetrically. The application even enables photographers to simulate a precise type of bokeh.
 
With just one license, DxO ViewPoint works as both a stand-alone app, and as a plug-in for DxO OpticsPro, Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. DxO ViewPoint 3 can be used as a plugin for DxO OpticsPro starting with version 11.3 (also available).
 
Pricing & Availability
 
DxO ViewPoint 3 for Mac and Windows is immediately available at photo resellers at a special discount through December 4, 2016:
 
  • USD: $49 instead of $79
  • GBP: £39 instead of £59
  • EUR: 49€ instead of 79€ (Suggested retail prices, including VAT)
Photographers who acquired a DxO ViewPoint license on or after September 1, 2016 are entitled to a free upgrade to version 3.
 
B&H has DxO ViewPoint 3 available for preorder.

DxO PRIME 2016 noise reduction technology and automated spot weighted corrections are indispensable tools for photographers
 
PARIS & SAN FRANCISCO—June 1, 2016—DxO, a world leader in digital imaging technologies, announces the immediate availability of DxO OpticsPro 11, a major update to its award-winning photo software for Mac and PC. DxO OpticsPro 11 introduces important enhancements to DxO PRIME, the industry-standard for noise reduction, and new automated tools, such as spot weighted correction, auto microcontrast and auto red-eye that leverage face detection to help bring out the subtle nuances in images — all in just a few clicks and regardless of the original shooting
 
DxO PRIME 2016, better and faster
DxO OpticsPro 11 features DxO’s proprietary DxO PRIME 2016 noise reduction, which enables photographers to salvage noisy photos thought previously unusable. With DxO OpticsPro 11, photographers can capture new images at an even higher ISO by using a new version of PRIME that is better and faster than ever. DxO PRIME 2016 better preserves bokehs and smooth transitions, retains more details, and more faithfully preserves colors in dark areas, and it does this all automatically by reading each camera’s precise calibration data. And through an intense effort to adapt and optimize this technology, DxO PRIME 2016 is now able to process RAW files up to 4x faster than before — in fact, the higher the ISO, the bigger the benefit of processing time.
 
“The new DxO PRIME noise reduction is nothing short of amazing,” said professional photographer Mike Mezeul, “it gives me the ability to capture images at incredibly high ISOs and still render out incredibly rich, detailed, and noise-free images.”
 
Automated Spot Weighted Corrections
The image scientists at DxO have designed a new enhancement to DxO OpticsPro’s Smart Lighting tool that uses face detection to apply an intelligent tone map on the entire image, to better extend the dynamic range, add fill light, and improve contrast while optimizing illumination on faces. The result is genuine spot processing—after capture—with the very same results as spot metering typically provides in camera, but with the added benefit of fine-tuning flexibility.
 
“The image scientists at DxO have done it again,” said Camilla Ferrari, professional photographer and DxO ambassador, “by using face detection, the new spot weighted correction is able to apply even a very strong level of Smart Lighting, while keeping the people in my images looking much more natural and pleasing to my eye.”
 
Other enhanced tools, including new full screen mode
DxO OpticsPro 11 also adds a number of other useful tools for photographers, including an auto microcontrast mode that enhances image content while taking care to preserve faces and keep noise under control. The selective tone control produces more natural results, efficiently recovering information in shadows and highlights while avoiding flattening midtones, and there’s also a new tool that uses face and eye detection to automatically apply red eye correction, even as a batch process on multiple photos. In addition, a brand new full screen viewer removes distracting clutter so you can focus more on selecting, rejecting and rating your images, while using new shortcuts designed to help speed up the culling process.
 
Even more cameras supported
Without any user intervention (apart from simply viewing your image) DxO OpticsPro will read the metadata in your photo, and prompt you to download the appropriate camera/lens module. With that module, OpticsPro automatically and intelligently applies corrections such as distortion, chromatic aberration, vignetting, and lens softness. And with this latest release, DxO OpticsPro 11 adds support for a number of new cameras, including Nikon’s new flagship D5, bringing the total number of supported camera/lens combinations to well over 28,000!
 
Pricing & Availability
The ESSENTIAL and ELITE editions of DxO OpticsPro 11 for Mac and Windows are immediately available at photo resellers at a special discount through June 30, 2016.

DxO OpticsPro 10 adds DxO ClearView, a spectacular new feature that eliminates haze, and improves its revolutionary PRIME denoising technology
 
October 29, 2014 – DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO OpticsPro 10, the new version of its flagship software that has been acclaimed numerous times for the unrivaled quality of its image processing. DxO OpticsPro 10 adds DxO ClearView, a new feature that eliminates atmospheric haze in a spectacular fashion. This new version also enhances the revolutionary PRIME denoising technology, DxO’s breakthrough noise reduction approach that can improve image quality of up to one full stop over the best noise reduction algorithms currently on the market.
 
DxO OpticsPro leverages DxO Lab’s rigorous scientific calibration of camera equipment, now including over 20,000 camera and lens combinations. Based on this proprietary data, DxO OpticsPro is able to offer the most powerful tools for processing RAW and JPEG images: unequaled optical corrections, intelligent optimization of exposure and contrast, and preservation of colors and details. Its many presets allow photographers to adapt the processing to suit their tastes, and to bring out the best in their photos in just a few clicks.
 
More accessible than ever, DxO OpticsPro 10 is available in two new editions – ESSENTIAL and ELITE – for both Mac and PC, starting from $129/£99/129€.
 
New DxO ClearView feature
The new exclusive DxO ClearView feature automatically eliminates the phenomenon of atmospheric haze visible in many landscape photos, as well as the smog often present in urban images. Based on a powerful algorithm, DxO ClearView analyzes the color components of each pixel and locally improves the image contrast.
 
“Due to its physical nature, the phenomenon of haze increases with the distance between the camera and the subject. That’s why DxO OpticsPro establishes a kind of depth map of the image scene and removes the impression of grey veil only when necessary” explains Frédéric Guichard, Chief Scientist Officer of DxO Labs. He adds: “The correction is local and completely automatic, making it unnecessary to draw areas by hand or to create a graduated filter.”
 
The results are spectacular: in just one click, the contrast in the image is instantly improved and faded colors are revived. For expert photographers, the intensity of the effect can be modified, so as to tailor the correction to the individual taste of each photographer.
 
Revolutionary PRIME technology optimized
Designed to achieve optimal image quality, DxO OpticsPro 10’s revolutionary PRIME (Probabilistic Raw IMage Enhancement) denoising technology has been improved to reveal more details and further optimized to increase speed, with processing time up to 4 times faster! In addition, the interface of the Noise reduction palette has been improved and provides a larger area for previewing denoising.
 
A DxO exclusive, PRIME denoising technology is based on a thorough analysis of the structure of an image in order to differentiate between noise and fine details. For each pixel, nearly a thousand neighboring pixels are studied to identify the similarities and recombine information. This ultra-high-quality denoising brings spectacular results: textures, details, and color saturation are preserved, particularly in shadows, even in images shot at very high sensitivities.
 
DxO Smart Lighting and DxO Lens Softness optimization
The exclusive DxO Smart Lighting feature optimizes the contrast over the entire image by intelligently adapting to its contents. Improved in DxO OpticsPro 10, it now offers a better rendering in automatic mode, thanks to a more detailed analysis of the scene content. In manual mode, the Selective tone sliders act even more precisely: information that one thought was lost in the dark or burnt zones are better restored, even in cases of strong backlighting.
 
With its precise knowledge of lens performance, DxO OpticsPro’s exclusive DxO Lens Softness tool harmonizes the sharpness of photos from the center to the edges, giving images exceptional crispness, regardless of shooting conditions. It performs with fewer artifacts than the previous version, as well as preserves colors better, to provide even stronger visual accents. Default color accentuation has also been increased to obtain even sharper images.
 
The power of DxO ViewPoint’s geometrical corrections applied to RAW files
DxO OpticsPro 10 can now integrate DxO ViewPoint’s powerful geometrical corrections. After the DxO ViewPoint plugin is activated, a dedicated palette lets photographers directly correct perspective problems and volume deformation in RAW and JPEG images. The dedicated DxO ViewPoint palette includes all the same visual tools as the standalone application version.
 
Even more comfort and productivity
The DxO OpticsPro interface has evolved once again. The White Balance and Dust Correction tools can now be used in full-screen mode for greater comfort and precision. The image browser has been simplified and the overall design of the interface has been revised.
 
More powerful than ever before, DxO Optics Pro has sped up its boot speed (x1.5), paired with a much faster file loading sped (x10) on both Mac and Windows for immediate access to images.
 
Finally, DxO OpticsPro 10 now supports DNG files converted using Lightroom or Adobe DNG Converter (so long as the original RAW file is also supported), for an easier workflow with Adobe products
 
New editions and new prices
DxO OpticsPro 10 is now accessible via two new editions, ESSENTIAL and ELITE, both of which support all of the equipment calibrated by DxO. The two editions differ in terms of the number of features available. Check out the feature comparison list for complete details.
 
The two editions of DxO OpticsPro 10 are available at even more attractive prices:
DxO OpticsPro 10 ESSENTIAL Edition - $129.00 (versus $169.00 for the previous version)
DxO OpticsPro 10 ELITE Edition - $199.00 (versus $299.00 for the previous version)

07/10/2014 – DxO FilmPack v4.5.2 and DxO ViewPoint v2.1.7 are now available! These two upgrades allow both software products to integrate perfectly with Adobe Photoshop CC (2014 edition).
 
DxO FilmPack: All the quality and emotion of fine arts photography
 
Acclaimed by professionals for the fidelity of its analog film renderings, DxO FilmPack lets photographers apply to their digital images all the characteristics of the analog films that have made photographic history, as well as many original looks, filters, tones, and visual effects. All of these renderings and effects can be infinitely combined and customized for unlimited creativity.
 
Coming in two editions, Essential and Expert, a single DxO FilmPack v4.5.2 license lets the software be used as a standalone application for OS X and Windows, and as a plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, Adobe Lightroom, Apple Aperture, and DxO Optics Pro.
 
DxO ViewPoint: the indispensable companion to wide-angle lenses
 
DxO ViewPoint fixes even the most complex problems with perspective, and easily restores the natural shapes of subjects located on the edges of images. Taking advantage of all of DxO Labs’ know-how in terms of optical calibrations, the software corrects barrel, pincushion, and fisheye distortions. DxO ViewPoint supports all photographic equipment, much of which also benefits from the automatic corrections provided by DxO Optics Modules.
 
DxO ViewPoint is available as a standalone application for OS X and Windows, and as a plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, Adobe Lightroom, and Apple Aperture — all with the same license.

From DxO:
 
DxO Optics Pro v9.5 offers a new image transfer feature that lets users process their RAW photos from Lightroom. Used in tandem with the Adobe software, DxO Optics Pro has definitively become the ideal solution when it comes to image quality.
 
This upgrade also adds support for 4 new cameras and 165 new DxO Optics Modules. Also available is DxO ViewPoint v2.1.6, which benefits from the addition of new DxO Optics Modules.
 
The first workflow completely integrated with Lightroom
 
Up until now, exporting a RAW image from Lightroom to another software application required first converting it to JPEG or TIFF format, which can reduce image quality. DxO Optics Pro v9.5 offers the first non-destructive workflow that is completely integrated with Lightroom.
 
This very simple process lets users transfer their RAW images in one click from the Lightroom cataloguer to DxO Optics Pro, process them, and then return them to Lightroom in DNG format, which retains the qualities of a RAW file so as to facilitate additional processing.
 
The dual non-destructive flow gives users optimal flexibility right through to the final adjustments to their photos.
 
To learn more about the interaction between DxO Optics Pro and Lightroom, go to our dedicated web page.
 
The power of DxO processing accessible in just one click
 
Accessible directly from Lightroom, this workflow puts all of DxO’s image quality know-how into the hands of Adobe software users:

  • The quality of its RAW conversion based on prior calibration of each sensor;
  • The efficiency of its exclusive PRIME technology in eliminating noise, even under the most extreme shooting conditions;
  • The power and precision of its optical corrections which, based on the calibration of each camera/lens combination, eliminates distortion, chromatic aberrations, and vignetting, as well as restores image sharpness;
  • The intelligent exposure optimization of its DxO Smart Lighting feature, which among other things allows for perfect recovery of highlights.

DxO Optics Pro automatically adjusts all of these parameters to produce an optimized rendering during batch processing, thus saving users a significant amount of time.
 
Increased compatibility with XMP standard
 
With the aim of facilitating its workflow with Lightroom, DxO Optics Pro v9.5 offers greater compatibility with the XMP standard: star or color rankings stored in image metadata are now perfectly preserved during transfer.
 
More than 18,000 available Optics Modules
 
DxO Optics Pro supports most current camera models on the market. DxO Optics Pro v9.5 now handles RAW files from 5 additional cameras: the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II, the Nikon 1 V3, the Panasonic Lumix GH-4, and the Sony A6000.
 
Finally, 165 new camera/lens combinations have been added to the library, which today counts more than 18,000 available DxO Optics Modules.

DxO Optics Pro v9.1 enhances its revolutionary PRIME denoising technology that restores the finest details in images even at the very highest sensitivities; provides support for eight new cameras; integrates the features of new DxO FilmPack v4.5 in plugin mode; and includes a new Export to Facebook option.
 
Even more spectacular images
DxO Optics Pro v9.1’s PRIME (Probabilistic Raw IMage Enhancement) technology has been enhanced to obtain an even more detailed rendering, particularly at high ISO. Textures and details are better preserved, and noise is eliminated more efficiently.
 
A DxO Labs’ exclusive denoising technology, PRIME, has been designed to achieve unrivaled image quality. Its algorithms analyze the structure of RAW images in depth: for each pixel, nearly a thousand neighboring pixels are studied in order to identify similarities and to reconstruct information. This unusual denoising produces spectacular results: details, color saturation (particularly in dark zones), and textures are preserved for a natural-looking rendering.
 
With PRIME denoising technology, DxO Optics Pro 9 offers a gain in image quality of up to one stop beyond the best noise reduction algorithms currently available on the market.
 
Support for new cameras and new DxO Optics Modules available
DxO’s laboratories calibrate the most recent equipment on the market.

Free download through November 3, exclusively in the Mac App Store
 
October 30, 2013 – DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO Perspective for Mac OS X, its exclusive application designed to correct perspective and horizon problems. Thanks to its system of applying anchor points directly on images, DxO Perspective offers a simple and innovative solution that puts its powerful geometric corrections into the hands of all photographers, even beginners. Indispensable for architectural and landscape photography!
 
DxO Perspective is available exclusively in the Mac App Store as a free download through November 3, 2013.
 
Easy yet powerful perspective corrections
In architectural or urban photography, depending on the position of the photographer with respect to the scene, buildings? vertical and horizontal lines can lose their parallelism. With DxO Perspective, making buildings plumb again has never been easier: users simply place the anchor points directly on the image along the lines they want to correct, and unnatural façades instantly return to their original appearance.
 
DxO Perspective corrects all kinds of perspective problems, even the most complex. Using its Rectangle tool, when a photo contains two perspective flaws, DxO Perspective?s Rectangle tool immediately reestablishes a full-frontal view of the object ? essential when shooting a photo of a poster or painting! In 8-point correction mode, DxO Perspective handles even more complex perspectives: the independent placing of horizontal and vertical guidelines provides highly precise corrections on multiple planes.
 
With just one line, DxO Perspective also restores balance and authenticity to landscape photos by perfectly straightening a slanted horizon.
 
Full-frame photos
Regardless of the corrections applied, DxO Perspective keeps photos full-frame, thanks to its automatic cropping feature that optimizes the visible field. Users can also customize the framing to highlight a particular element. A composition grid facilitates precise adjustments.
 
Advanced settings
Serious photographers can also adjust the intensity of the correction and the horizontal/vertical ratio according to their own tastes.
 
Availability and special introductory offer
DxO Perspective for Mac OS X is immediately and exclusively available in the Mac App Store. To access the application, click here. The software is free through November 3, 2013, instead of priced at $19.99?.

DxO gave me the opportunity to test drive Optics Pro 9 Elite Edition before its release. The noise reduction technology is very good, although the "PRIME" noise reduction algorithm takes a substantial amount of time and computing power. So much time, in fact, that denoising runs continously in the background and will only allow you to see its effects on a small preview section of the image before it is saved.
 
Even so, I was very impressed with DxO Optics Pro 9. They've done a good job at reducing noise while preserving a good amount of detail in the image - even with their standard (non-PRIME) desnoising compared to previous Optics Pro editions. [Sean]
 
From DxO:
 
With its award-winning and unrivaled image processing quality, DxO Optics Pro definitively emerges as the software of reference for the most demanding photographers
 
Special introductory offer through November 20, 2013

 
October 23, 2013 - DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO Optics Pro 9, the major new version of its image-processing software. DxO Optics Pro 9 introduces PRIME, a revolutionary noise reduction technology whose spectacular performance produces detailed and vividly-colored images even under the most extreme shooting conditions.
 
Based on DxO Labs' exclusive approach of prior calibration of equipment in its laboratories, DxO Optics Pro integrates many powerful tools for automatically processing RAW and JPEG images: precise optical and geometric corrections, intelligent optimization of exposure and contrast, preservation of colors and details. Its numerous presets can be adapted to photographers' personal tastes and will help them bring out the best in their photos in just a few clicks.
 
Breathtaking images, even at extremely high ISO
 
Thanks to PRIME (Probabilistic Raw IMage Enhancement) denoising technology, which analyzes the structure of RAW images in depth in order to differentiate between noise and fine details, DxO Optics Pro 9 offers a gain in image quality of up to one full stop over the best noise reduction algorithms currently on the market.
 
"In contrast to the usual approach of finding a better compromise between image quality and execution speed, we have created a tool whose sole purpose is to obtain the best image quality possible," explained Frédéric Guichard, Chief Scientific Officer of DxO Labs. "For each pixel, more than a thousand neighboring pixels are analyzed. This vast exploration allows DxO Optics Pro to identify similar data that can serve to reconstruct image information. Several minutes may be required to do this, but this process takes place in the background, so users can work on other images and projects while they wait for the results."
 
PRIME technology results in truly spectacular images: noise is suppressed, and textures, details, and color saturation are preserved, particularly in shadows, for a beautifully natural look.
 
For photographers who prefer to denoise their images immediately, DxO Optics Pro 9 still offers a newly-improved high-quality "classic" denoising tool that produces finely-detailed renderings quickly, even at the highest sensitivities.
 
Unrivaled highlight management and color rendering
 
The exclusive DxO Smart Lighting feature optimizes the overall contrast of an image by intelligently adapting to its contents. This tool has been further improved in DxO Optics Pro 9, which now offers even more powerful highlight management: details that once were thought lost are revealed, even when the information is missing in the original RAW data, and colorimetric errors are minimized.
 
DxO Labs' highly precise knowledge of the way each camera reproduces color allows DxO Optics Pro to emulate the rendering of any camera on RAW images. DxO Optics Pro 9 goes even further by proposing a new color rendering called "DxO Portrait," which preserves skin tones and naturally-saturated colors.
 
New visual presets
 
DxO Optics Pro 9's library of presets has been completely redesigned. Portrait, Landscape, Black & White, Single-shot HDR: the new DxO presets respond to different use cases that photographers frequently encounter, and are supplemented by "Atmospheres," a new set of creative renderings.
 
A new visual presets window makes it easier for users choose which preset to apply to their images by letting them preview thumbnails of the rendering effects prior to application.
 
New export tools
 
DxO Optics Pro 9 simplifies its workflow by allowing photographers to go directly from customizing their images to using and sharing them.
 
The "Export to Disk" feature lets users generate and save JPEG, TIFF, and DNG images in just a few clicks. The new "Export to Application" feature groups into a single transaction both processing and opening images in an external application, such as other DxO software products or other editors that specialize in photo retouching, panoramic shots, HDR, and cataloguing. Finally, the "Export to Flickr" feature adopts this same new approach, letting users process and publish their photos directly online in just one step.
 
Even more comfortable and productive
 
The DxO Optics Pro interface has undergone another evolution, with a new workspace that highlights essential correction tools, optimizes vertical space, and reorganizes toolbars and palettes in an even more logical fashion. Further, it is now possible to access context-sensitive help directly in the correction palettes.
 
Availability and special introductory offer
 
The Standard and Elite editions of DxO Optics Pro 9 for Mac and Windows are now available at photo resellers at a special discount through November 20, 2013:

  • DxO Optics Pro 9 Standard Edition: $99 instead of $169

Improved productivity
 
Now even easier to use, DxO ViewPoint v1.2 provides a new feature that allows photographers to save the correction settings for any given image and to reapply them later.
 
In the plug-in versions for Adobe® Photoshop® and Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom®, this feature provides a new, more fluid workflow: photographers can reapply their corrections in just a single click even after going back and modifying their image in their host application.
 
In the standalone version, this feature significantly improves productivity, in that corrections can be saved and applied successively to other photos with identical problems.
