DxO has announced PhotoLab 4, a major update of its photo editing software that adds new technology based on artificial intelligence and trained with deep learning.
With DxO PhotoLab 4 the company has introduced DeepPRIME, a new demosaicing and denoising technology that has been trained on millions of images to improve digital noise reduction while delivering more effective demosaicing.
This is aimed at low-light photographers and is also compatible with raw images. To achieve this, DxO says it has measured the distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, loss of sharpness and digital noise generated by ‘each equipment combination and in every situation’.
DxO has also introduced Smart Workspace, which is a new system of filters that allows users to show tool palettes by correction type or display only your favourite palettes. Smart Worksplace will also open your desired palette immediately when you search for it.
Other new additions to DxO PhotoLab 4 include Batch Renaming for faster editing. The new feature lets users select multiple files at once and edit the file names.
A new batch processing function also allows users to synchronise the look of multiple images by applying specific edits from one photo. From the Photo Browser, users can select the specific edits they want to apply to one or several other images by editing type, such as lighting, colour, detail, local adjustments, geometry or watermarking.
Watermarking is another new addition to DxO PhotoLab 4. The software lets you embed a test or image file into the background of your photos.
The DxO PhotoLab 4 price tag will be £86.99 (down from £112) for the Essential Edition and the DxO PhotoLab 4 Elite Edition will be priced £129.99 (down from £169). These PhotoLab 4 prices will rise from their discounted rates after 19 November 2020.
