May 23, 2012 – DxO Labs announces the availability of DxO Optics Pro v7.5 for Mac and Windows, its image-processing software of reference for all exacting photographers.
DxO Optics Pro v7.5 has been profoundly revised to run as a native 64-bit application. This important update offers quicker previewing and faster processing speed for increased productivity.
The 64-bit version of DxO Optics Pro v7.5 can handle much larger files – up to 200 Megapixels – which notably allows it to handle Nikon D800 files. This update is accompanied by nearly 200 additional DxO Optics Modules, of which 60 are for the Nikon D800.
The laboratory: the secret to DxO’s optical corrections
Thanks to its library of more than 6,000 DxO Optics Modules, DxO Optics Pro automatically corrects all optical flaws such as distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, and lack of sharpness — with an incomparable level of quality.
DxO Optics Modules are developed in our labs according to a scientific calibration process for each combination of cameras and lenses. Each module contains tens of thousands of data points about the intrinsic limitations of each piece of equipment, thus allowing DxO Optics Pro to automatically apply corrections that are perfectly suited to each image.
An even simpler interface
The DxO Optics Pro v7.5 interface includes new enhancements in Windows for even smoother software use: improvement of the image filtering menu, optimization of the move/zoom palettes, visualization of processing progress in the task bar, etc.
An improved activation system
DxO Optics Pro v7.5 is equipped with a new activation system that is more flexible for customers. Using fewer memory resources, starting up in Windows is much faster, making everyday use even easier.
