"Bundling DxO FilmPack with onOne Software's Plug-In Suite 3 provides photographers with a wonderful combination of both aesthetic and technical tools for their demanding digital imaging needs," says Luc Marin, vice president of the Photography Business at DxO Labs.

About DxO FilmPack
Compatible with Windows and Macintosh, DxO FilmPack v1.1 enables digital photographers to add the effect - in terms of color and grain - of more than 20 slide, black-and-white and color negative films. DxO FilmPack even permits users to combine the color rendition and grain profiles of different films. This latest version also adds a range of "toning" renditions bringing DxO FilmPack ever closer to a traditional darkroom experience.
DxO FilmPack effects can be applied to any digital image in JPEG or TIFF8 or TIFF16 format, regardless of its source (digital camera, bridge camera, D-SLR, digital scan, etc). When used within DxO Optics Pro, the DxO FilmPack effects can even be applied to RAW images, providing even greater color accuracy.
Version 1.1 of DxO FilmPack is available as an Adobe Photoshop plug-in for Photoshop CS2, CS3 and Photoshop Elements 4 & 5, a stand-alone application and an add-on to DxO Optics Pro 4.2 or greater.
