DxO PureRAW 2 announced

DxO has introduced an update to its excellent noise reduction software, DxO PureRAW 2, with the ability to work within Lightroom as a plug-in, and adding speed enhancements and compatibility with Fujifilm X-Trans CMOS sensors.

This means that in Lightroom Classic, users just need to right-click on one or more raw files and select ‘Export’ followed by ‘Process with DxO PureRAW 2’. The software then creates Linear DNG files in the same folder with no need to work outside of Lightroom.

Alternatively, DxO PureRAW 2 can be used directly within Windows File Explorer and macOS Finder. It’s just a case of right-clicking on the files and choosing the option from the menu to get processing.

According to DxO, PureRAW 2 has been given some significant speed improvements so it is 1.5x faster on recent Windows computers and 4x faster on Apple Silicon machines. In addition, HiDPI displays are supported.

Fujifilm X-Trans camera support

Because of their unique sensor design, Fujifilm cameras were not compatible with the first incarnation of DxO PureRAW, but now DxO PureRAW 2 enables raw files from X-Trans CMOS sensors to be processed.

PureRAW 2 uses DxO’s DeepPRIME technology to clean images, removing noise and artefacts and restoring colour to high ISO images. PureRAW 2 can also apply DxO’s lens corrections, dealing with distortion, vignetting and chromatic aberrations while improving overall sharpness.

DxO has also added modules for a host of other camera and lens combinations bring the total number of modules to over 70,000.

DxO PureRAW 2 price and availability

DxO PureRAW 2 is available to down load immediately from DxO. It costs £115 for new users and is £69 for upgraders.
