DxO PhotoLab 3 has been updated to version 3.2. The free update includes numerous improvements plus raw file support for five new cameras. Long known for its local adjustment tools, DxO PhotoLab 3.2 introduces new Duplicate and Rename features in the Local Adjustments Palette. The Repair Tool, used to remove distracting elements from your image, has a new display mode for better visibility. DxO PhotoLab 3.2 includes new multi-image keywords, plus Windows users now have access to renaming functionality.

Regarding improved local adjustment mask management, with the new Duplicate and Rename features, users can reproduce masks from image to image. Once applied to a new image, the mask can then be adapted as needed for each image. To aid in easy identification of individual masks you have created, DxO PhotoLab 3.2 adds the ability to rename your masks. You can also quickly move each mask with a single click when using the brush tool.

The simplified Repair Tool display mode interface has been redesigned to allow the user to see more of the background when removing objects. This means that it will be easier to make accurate and realistic looking repairs to your images. The area being retouched is now outlined with a thin line, as can be seen in the screenshot below.
