In October, DxO released the new version of their raw editing software, PhotoLab 2. The French software and imaging tech company has just released the first update to PhotoLab 2, bringing the software to version 2.1

Version 2.1 adds improvements to the new PhotoLibrary image asset management system introduced in PhotoLab 2. The database architecture has been optimized, resulting in “significantly faster searches.” Further, there is a detailed search history feature, allowing you to peruse prior searches, even if you have closed and reopened the software. In the macOS version of PhotoLab 2.1, there is also a file indexing feature.

The update also adds new camera support, including support for the Fujifilm X-A5, the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and the Nikon Z7, including new support for the Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/4 S. Support modules for the Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 S and Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.8 S lenses will be available in early 2019. Further, regarding support for other Bayer-sensored Fujifilm cameras, such as the X-A5, DxO states on their website that support for the Fujifilm X-T100, GFX 50S and GFX 50R is expected to arrive next April. 


DxO has also announced a special offer on all DxO software until December 25. DxO PhotoLab 2 is available in Essential and Elite Editions, which are currently discounted to $99 and $149 USD respectively, a savings of $30 and $50.
