If taking the perfect photo is all a matter of timing, the arrival of DxO’s latest software updates could not be better. The new and improved PhotoLab and FilmPack make editing and rendering smoother than ever, at an introductory price point that cannot be missed.

DxO PhotoLab 5 comes with improved sensitivity to make its intuitive retouching toolkit yet more efficient. A new kind of pointer, the Control Lines tool, is an easy-to-use selection method for perfecting touch-ups on large areas. The Control Lines pointer has also been given more precise sensitivity settings, so making adjustments can be as smooth a process as the final result.

When it comes to processing and export times, DxO PhotoLab 5 has shot even further. DxO DeepPRIME is the culmination of 20 years of deep learning methods designed to streamline the development of RAW files, drastically improve digital noise reduction and ensure more efficient demosaicing. Instead of the traditional process that separates out these operations, DeepPRIME’s holistic approach combines the steps into one.

In addition the software now supports Fujifilm X-Trans sensor cameras for the first time. Currently in Beta, the new capability adds no fewer than 18 new devices to PhotoLab’s available sources.

The DxO PhotoLab 5 Essential package is now available for £99.99 instead of the regular price of £129.99; the Elite package £149.99, down from £199.99.

Meanwhile the new Time Machine feature allows photographers to transport their pictures back to 14 different time periods, each represented by an array of iconic images. Whether you want to recreate the look of the 1950s or William Klein, photographers can take their pick of classic styles. Plus, users have Hollywood at their fingertips thanks to six new cinema renderings inspired by the biggest trends in color grading.
