DXO FilmPack 5 Essential
To start off easily, DxO FilmPack ESSENTIAL EDITION offers many simple and practical features for giving your photos greater emotional impact by letting you choose from among a wide range of renderings and effects.
Now supporting RAW format, DxO FilmPack uses the calibrated data from your camera to apply analog renderings with perfectly faithful colors. Since the colors in your images haven’t been altered in any way, DxO FilmPack’s exclusive automatic Color protection feature is even more effective. And as it is based on all of DxO’s RAW processing know-how, DxO FilmPack automatically corrects — without any intervention on your part — all of your equipment’s possible optical flaws: distortion, vignetting, and chromatic aberrations, all while efficiently reducing the undesirable digital noise in your images.
And of course, processing TIFF and JPEG images is always possible!
More than 80 “high-fidelity” analog film renderings
DxO FilmPack renderings are created in DxO’s laboratories using an exclusive scientific process of exhaustively profiling each film. This process is based on a series of shots of specially-calibrated targets and as well as real-life subjects taken with the film being profiled. The film is then developed by the world’s most reputable processing laboratories, notably PICTO in France and Duggal in the United States, and is then subjected to high-resolution digitization in order to measure the film response and to extract the grain matrices. This process has allowed DxO to perfectly reproduce “high-fidelity” rendering of the characteristic appearance, colors, and grains of 83 legendary films — color negatives, black & white, slide, and instant snapshots.
Color renderings: the poetry of analog film applied to digital photos
DxO FilmPack applies to your digital images the saturation, the contrast, and the grain of the most celebrated analog silver halide, slide, and color negative films. Rediscover the sweetness of a Kodak Portra 160 NC for your portraits and events, the magic of a Polaroid so as to imitate old vacation photos, or even the contrast and stunning colors of a Fuji Velvia 50 for macrophotography. Up to 45 color analog films are available to bring out the sleeping visual poet in you!
Designer presets: a touch of madness for your images
DxO FilmPack provides you with many original creative renderings: up to 39 color and black & white designer presets are available. Vintage effects, aged photos, improbable tints: give a unique style to your photos. With the Poetic preset, recreate the warm tones and past colors of an old American series. With Red tone, warm up the colors to capture the evening light. Use Photo 1900 to reproduce all the sweetness of sepia enhanced with a fine grain.
Fine micro-contrast for even more striking images
Enhance your black & white photos: DxO FilmPack’s new fine micro-contrast tool is more efficient for adjusting local contrast and gives you more flexibility. The algorithm applies a multi-scale filter that blurs the details, while preserving the marked contours of the image. The contrast is visibly reinforced by avoiding halo effects and it is particularly enhanced in highlights. It is also possible to act on each luminosity range – highlights, midtones, and lowlights – for ultra-precise adjustments. Ideal for increasing the dramatic intensity of a landscape photo or for giving a distinctive look to a portrait by highlighting the details in skin tone.
