The latest update for DxO’s PureRAW photo pre-processing software is delivering new options for controlling sharpness, distortion and export configuration. Eight cameras and 18 lenses have also been added to the program’s database.

When used before working with other photo editing softwares, such as Photoshop and Lightroom, PureRAW demosaics and automatically removes digital noise, chromatic aberrations, unwanted vignetting, distortion and lack of sharpness. By optimising Raw images the photographer can enjoy greater freedom over the creative editing process with Adobe solutions, resulting in more precise results and unlimited opportunity.

New editing options

PureRAW 1.5 can now correct two lens defects, namely lack of sharpness and distortion, so that users can process photos taken with fish-eye lenses or even scenes that require moderate sharpness.

The software also makes it easier to select export directories, by automatically saving recent and favourite destinations. In addition, the preview window now includes a list of magnification factors, so users can better judge the quality of their images. Finally, the software informs users of the volume of data generated and the processing time required depending on the number of images selected.

Support for new lenses and cameras

PureRAW now supports an additional eight new cameras and 18 lenses, including the Pentax K-3 III, Panasonic GH5 II, Nikon Z fc and Sony ZV-E10, plus optics such as the Canon RF 100mm f/2.8 L Macro and14-35mm f/4 L IS USM, Nikkor 70-200mm f/4, Panasonic Lumix S 50mm f/1.8, Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8, 35mm f/1.4, 105mm f/2.8 and 105mm f/2.8 and Tamron 11-20mm f/2.8 and 150-500mm f/5-6.7.

DxO PureRAW 1.5 for Windows and macOS is now available for download on the DxO website for £115.

This update is free for owners of DxO PureRAW 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2.

A free, 30-day trial version is also available.
