PRESS RELEASE: Free DxO Optics Pro Upgrade Increases Speed and Functionality of Award-winning Automatic Digital Image Enhancement Software
DxO Optics Pro v4.1 improves speed and fluidity for greater comfort and productivity. DxO Optics Pro v4.1 is compatible with the all-new DxO FilmPack and is immediately available for Windows and Mac users.
PARIS, France -- Dec. 4 -- DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO Optics Pro v4.1 -- an upgrade to the recently released DxO Optics Pro v4, the company's flagship automatic digital image enhancement software. Among the many speed improvements in DxO Optics Pro v4.1, users will be particularly impressed with the increased speed with which Raw images are previewed (2-4 times faster than in version 4.0) and the increased fluidity of the sliders (more than twice as fast).
Also of note in this upgrade are the improved flexibility when switching from one tool to another, the increased level of image information available for display, use of screen ICC profiles in preview and a flurry of other tweaks and improvements for increased stability and ease of use.
DxO Optics Pro v4.1 is also compatible with the all-new add-on DxO FilmPack which brings back the magic of more than 20 landmark film looks -- both in color and grain -- to all digital images processed in DxO Optics Pro v4.1.
DxO Optics Pro v4.1 is immediately available for Windows and as a Universal Binary Macintosh application.
"We want to make it as easy and as fast as possible for photographers to process their images. The speed gains and improvements to the DxO Optics Pro v4.1 user interface are particularly noticeable when working on Raw files," says Luc Marin VP Business Development, Photography at DxO Labs.
