  • DxO RAW Engine gives photographers control of the RAW conversion process.
  • DxO Lighting Engine, to bring out the shadow detail, while preserving highlights, textures, colors, and a natural look.
  • DxO Noise Engine, which automatically reduces image noise, while preserving maximum detail.
  • Price: DxO Optics Pro 3.0 Elite (for professional photographers), $249; DxO Optics Pro 3.0 (for prosumers), $159; upgrades from DxO Optics Pro 2.2, $49. DxO Optics Pro is available in six languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish. (DXO Labs: www.dxo.com)
