DxO Labs have announced the upcoming release of DxO Optics Pro. The program, which will be available for Mac and Windows on 29th October, introduces DxO Smart Lighting, a new feature that intelligently adapts to image content and allows users to easily adjust image contrast using a single slider. DxO Smart Lighting automatically recovers details both in highlights and shadows under even the most extreme shooting conditions, the company claims. For more advanced users, DxO Optics Pro 8 offers a new Selective tone tool that allows them to apply precise corrections separately to highlights, midtones, and dark zones. The Standard and Elite editions of DxO Optics Pro 8 for Mac and Windows will be available at a special introductory discount valid until 15th November - click through / read on for the details.
