DxO updates FilmPack to version 4.5

DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO FilmPack v4.5, an update of its famous analog film simulation software.

DxO FilmPack v4.5 offers two new legendary film renderings, provides new creative looks, and improves its palette of special effects so as to let photographers give their images an even more unique style, whether in colour or in black & white.

DxO FilmPack lets photographers apply to their digital images all of the characteristics of famous films that have made photo history, along with many original looks, filters, tonings, and visual effects. All of these film renderings and effects can be infinitely combined and customized for unlimited creativity.

Available in two editions, Essential and Expert, DxO FilmPack v4.5 can be used under one license as both a standalone application for OS X and Windows, and as a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop
Elements, Adobe Lightroom, Apple Aperture, and DxO Optics Pro.

DxO FilmPack v4.5 enhances its selection of film renderings with two new films: the legendary Agfa Scala
200x, a now-discontinued black & white slide film that offers an extraordinarily nuanced palette, exceptional patterning, and a high level of detail, and the luminous Kodak Ektar 100, an ultra-vivid color-negative film with very fine grain.

DxO FilmPack v4.5 provides six new Designer presets (Expert edition), two of which are also included in the Essential edition. These presets combine intensity of grain, contrast and saturation, color filtering, texture and framing, to give photos a unique atmosphere.

DxO FilmPack v4.5 is available as a plug-in for DxO Optics Pro starting with version v9.1 (likewise available). Users of DxO Optics Pro 8 will need to update their software to v8.5 to be able to take advantage of all of DxO FilmPack v4.5’s features.

Both the Essential and Expert editions of DxO FilmPack v4.5 for Mac and Windows are immediately available in the DxO Labs online store (shop.dxo.com) and at photo resellers at a special discount price until 25 December 2013:

Essential Edition: £39 instead of £59
Expert Edition: £79 instead of £99
