The latest version of DXO Optics Pro is now available for Mac and Windows.


DxO Optics Pro 8 represents a major new release of this popular image quality processing software, providing optimised tools for automatically adjusting contrast and light, advanced optical corrections and finer and more precise colour management. The software also integrates tools for automatic RAW and JPEG image processing, including optical and geometrical corrections, exposure and contrast, noise reduction and colour and detail preservation.

New DxO Smart Lighting brightens photos by optimising contrast and lighting, intelligently adapting to image content and allowing users to easily adjust image contrast with a single slider. It automatically recovers details both in highlights and shadows under extreme shooting conditions.
