The image, and RAW, processing software DxO Optics Pro from DxO has been replaced by a new version called DxO Photo Lab. The new name brings new features, like the most interesting are the following ones:
- local adjustment tool (finally, every major image software has one) using Nik's U Point technology that has been bought from Google which in turn acquired Nik software 5 years ago - Nik software provides renowned effects for black and white, film and so on;
- graduated filter (like in Adobe Lightroom and other similar softwares);
- auto mask to help user to follow edges when drawing a retouching mask (this too available in similar advanced image softwares);
- a rebuilt version of the repair tool that promises better and faster operations.
