June 5, 2013 – DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO FilmPack 4, a major new version of its popular analog film simulation and creative effects software. DxO FilmPack 4 adds 65 even more aesthetically-pleasing renderings and stunning new effects to help photographers give their photos greater emotional impact as well as a unique style, whether in color or in black & white.
With DxO FilmPack 4, photographers can apply to their digital photos all the characteristic color, contrast, and grain of analog films that made photographic history, along with many original looks, filters, tonings, and visual effects — all of which can be infinitely combined and customized.
For legendary photographer Sebastião Salgado, “DxO FilmPack represents an indispensable step in my photographic process.” DxO FilmPack has allowed him to find an exact digital rendering of his beloved Kodak Tri-X film.
Available in two editions, Essential and Expert, a single DxO FilmPack 4 license can be used as a plugin for Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, Apple Aperture, and
DxO Optics Pro, and as a standalone application for Mac and Windows.
DxO FilmPack 4 is now available in DxO Labs’ online store (shop.dxo.com) and at photo resellers at a discount through June 30, 2013.
Faithfully-restored film quality
Thanks to DxO Labs’ exclusive calibration technologies, DxO FilmPack 4 offers a palette of faithfully-rendered analog film simulations with an unrivaled level of quality in the field.
To accurately reconstitute the characteristics of such traditional films as Kodak Ektachrome, Fuji Superia, and Agfa APX, DxO Labs adopted a scientific approach based on taking photos with analog films, having those films developed at highly-reputable professional laboratories — PICTO in France and Duggal in the United States — and following a rigorous digitization process.
This approach has resulted in the perfect restoration of the grain, color, contrast, and saturation of 60 legendary color and black & white films, with an authenticity that has been recognized by today’s greatest photographers.
65 original renderings and effects to bring out photographers’ artistic sense
Dominant colors, blur, pinhole, vignetting, and grain: each new DxO FilmPack 4 designer rendering is based on a careful calibration of grain intensity, contrast, and saturation of film, vignetting, and color filters to lend photos a unique atmosphere.
A new range of texture, light leak, blur vignetting, and unusual frame effects (Expert edition) allows photographers to give their photos an aged look, to draw attention to a subject, or even to use original photo borders to highlight their images.
Users can fully customize every film rendering and effect, offering countless possible combinations.
An even richer user experience
DxO FilmPack 4 provides even better handling, allowing users to more freely explore the wealth of available renderings and settings.
The controls panel has been entirely redesigned so as to give users even quicker access to the settings and effects that are specific to either color or black & white processing. A search engine and a “Favorites” feature have been added to let users directly access their preferred renderings. And a new “Snapshots” feature (Expert edition) lets users save and return to each step in their photo treatment process.
DxO FilmPack 4 is available in the DxO Labs online store (shop.dxo.com) and at photo resellers at the following prices:
- Essential Edition : $49 instead of $79
- Expert Edition: $99 instead of $129
