DxO has launched version 1.1 of its DxO PhotoLab software, which adds new local adjustment tools and compatibility with new cameras and Lightroom Classic.

Available for both Mac and PC, DxO has made PhotoLab 1.1 compatible with Adobe Lightroom CC Classic. What this compatibility means is that users can process raw files in Lightroom, transfer these images to PhotoLab 1.1 for further editing, and then send them back to Lightroom in a .DNG format.

DxO PhotoLab 1.1 also introduces new local adjustment tools that employ Nik Software’s U Point technology, which allows users to perform complex selections in fewer clicks.

DxO has also revamped PhotoLab’s Brush tool to enable users adjust their flow and opacity settings.

Other improvements in DxO PhotoLab 1.1 include an improved photo comparison mode to display local adjustment settings, and the software can now support images taken with the Canon EOS M100, Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III and Tough TG-5, the Sony RX10 IV and the DJI Mavic PRO and Phantom 4 PRO drones.
