DxO PhotoLab 3.2 Is Expanding Its Set Of Local Adjustment Tools And Improving Its PhotoLibrary

DxO PhotoLab 3.2
With the new Duplicate and Rename features, users can enjoy even more flexibility when managing several local adjustment masks within a single image.

DxO PhotoLab 3, the
market’s leading photo-editing software in terms of image quality developed by DxO, has now
become even better with its latest 3.2 update. After introducing the DxO
ColorWheel, which offers users a brand-new approach to colour, DxO PhotoLab 3.2
has made local adjustment mask management even more flexible, optimized its
Repair Tool, and improved PhotoLibrary keyword support. In addition, the
software now supports five new cameras, including the recent Canon EOS-1D X
Mark III, the Nikon D780, and the Olympus E-M1 Mark III.

Improved Mask Management

In addition to the existing display, opacity adjustment, and mask reversal features, the improved Local Adjustment Palette available through DxO PhotoLab 3.2 includes two new settings: Duplicate and Rename. With these features, users can enjoy even more flexibility when managing several local adjustment masks within a single image. Photographers can duplicate control points, graduated filters, or masks to retain the same settings as the original and adapt them to suit their needs. Users can also assign a customized name to their masks to identify them more easily. In addition, the ability to move automatic masks and masks created with the Brush Tool is now available on the Windows version as well.

New Display Mode For The Repair Tool

DxO PhotoLab 3.2
has optimized the display of its Repair Tool, a powerful paintbrush that can be
used to remove any unwanted elements from an image. Users can now enjoy a more
streamlined display. The areas being retouched are now highlighted by a thin outline
to make them easier to see without obstructing the background.

This design lets photographers reposition the area in the source image that is used to reconstruct the portion being edited. Feathering and opacity level are still adjustable.

Improved Keyword Support

DxO has improved keyword
support in the DxO PhotoLibrary to offers users a workflow that is ever more
comprehensive—from the image organization stage to export. In addition to the
ability to add, delete, and rename the keywords that are paired to an image,
DxO PhotoLab 3.2 now lets users differentiate between keywords that are tagged
to several images and has added the renaming feature to the Windows version.

Support For Five New Cameras

DxO’s engineers
have worked hard to include support for the latest cameras released in early
2020. DxO PhotoLab 3.2 now supports the Canon EOS-1D X Mark III, the Nikon
D780, and the Olympus E-M1 Mark III. The software is also compatible with the
Leica D-Lux 7 and Q2.

More than 770
optical modules have also been added to the DxO PhotoLab 3.2 database, which
now includes over 60,000 different camera/lens combinations. Through the high-quality
RAW conversion technology included in DxO PhotoLab 3.2 and DxO’s scientific
calibration process, the photos taken with these devices will be automatically
corrected for any optical faults.

These cameras are
also supported by DxO FilmPack 5 and DxO ViewPoint 3.
