An evolution of the DxO Optics Pro software which adds local adjustments – the ability to modify selected areas of a photo only – to DxO Optics Pro, amongst other enhancements. DxO PhotoLab is a standalone program for Mac or PC and its speciality is high-quality raw file processing and automatic lens corrections and optimisation. It comes in a lower cost Essentials and more expensive Elite version.
A special type of distortion correction once built into DxO Optics Pro but now built into the separate DxO ViewPoint application. It fixes the distortion usually seen with wideangle lenses where objects near the edge of the frame appear disproportionately wide – it’s most obvious with human figures.
Software that corrects distortion using lens correction profiles, fixes volume deformation created by wideangle lenses and offers perspective correction tools for fixing converging verticals and more. Works as a standalone app or as a plug-in and also integrates with DxO Optics Pro. See also: DxO ViewPoint 3 review
A filter in Color Efex Pro, part of the Nik Collection, to adjust the contrast with specific brightness ranges. For example, if the shadow areas of a photo are looking rather flat, you can boost them with the Shadows slider and leave the rest of the picture unaffected.
