DxO has announced the availability of DxO Optics Pro v9.5 for Mac and Windows, the latest upgrade of its image processing software of reference for all demanding photographers. DxO Optics Pro v9.5 offers a new image transfer feature that lets users process their RAW photos from 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.
This upgrade also adds support for 4 new cameras as well as 165 new DxO Optics Modules. 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.
The dual non-destructive flow gives users optimal flexibility right through to the final adjustments to their photos.
DxO Optics Pro supports most current camera models on the market. DxO Optics Pro v9.5 now handles RAW files from 4 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.
The Standard and Elite editions of DxO Optics Pro v9.5 for Mac and Windows are now available in the DxO Labs online store
and at photo resellers at a special discount until 15 June 2014:
DxO Optics Pro 9 Standard Edition: £79 instead of £119
