Vertus, the graphics and imaging software division of Heligon, a technology business specializing in image data interpretation, in partnership with DxO Labs, producers of solutions which guarantee excellence in digital imaging, today announced the immediate availability of three new bundled software packages. Each package includes the newest version of Vertus’ award-winning Fluid Mask, the professionals’ choice for rapid, powerful and intuitive masking and high-quality image blending, and either DxO Optics Pro v4.5 (Standard or Elite) or DxO FilmPack software, which provides the most advanced image enhancing tools currently available.
“We are extremely enthusiastic about joining with DxO Labs to offer these valuable image editing packages,” said James Carr-Jones, president & CEO of Vertus. “Using the unmatched masking capabilities of the new Fluid Mask 3 and the unique image enhancements or effects available with DxO Labs’ products such as DxO Optics Pro and DxO FilmPack, image editing will not only be fast and accurate, but more brilliant and inventive. Users who take advantage of these limited time offers will truly be acquiring the best image editing products on the market.”
The combination of these unique tools provides image editors with the software tools necessary to create the most accurate and efficient image alterations. By adapting techniques that mimic the way the human eye and brain see edges and objects, Fluid Mask 3 identifies the outline of the various colours, textures and shades, and separates the image into individual puzzle-like pieces to enable the easiest and most accurate masks available. The unique tools included in DxO Optics Pro allow users to perform batch enhancements of their digital images, eliminating distortions, optimizing exposure, dynamic range, and correcting noise (to name just few corrections) in a few clicks of the mouse. Fine tuning image effects with DxO FilmPack allows users to mimic the style and grain of the most celebrated conventional films, by reproducing the aesthetic properties of these film types and applying them with a single click.
“This partnership with Vertus enables us to offer a significant savings to photographers, graphic designers and other users,” said Luc Marin, vice president of the Photography Business at DxO Labs. “Our DxO Optics Pro software enables users to optimize their images and eliminate distortion, lens softness or colour fringing before performing image extraction with Fluid Mask 3. Then DxO FilmPack renders digital effects like colour and grain previously only available with traditional film. With images rendered near perfect with DxO Labs’ products and the highest quality cut outs performed with Fluid Mask 3, image editors will undoubtedly exceed their every creative expectation.”
