DxO FilmPack 2 Free Download with Serial Number / License Key (Windows & Mac) – DxO FilmPack is a simple and efficient film simulation software which allows photographers, experts as well as beginners, to easily give any digital image the style of a photo taken with black & white or color film, including the legendary renderings of films used by the great photographers of the last century. Based on DxO Labs’ unique calibration know-how, DxO FilmPack v2 provides photographers with the most accurate film simulation available on the market today to add the effect – in terms of color, saturation, contrast and grain – of more than 55 transparency-type (slide) films, color and black-and-white negative films plus creative cross-processing, and toning to their images. Of course, DxO FilmPack makes a copy without altering your original… which can be saved or used to try other film renderings later.
Thanks to the easy-to-use and intuitive interface these simulations are available with a single mouse click or with complete creative control of color rendition and grain for knowledgeable users. DxO FilmPack v2 also enables users to match the tone and look of older Silver Halide prints with digital files and even create their own personalized film interpretations. DxO FilmPack can be used as a standalone product or as a plug-in (currently 32 bit only) with DxO Optics Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Adobe Lightroom, or Apple Aperture.
DxO FilmPack thus offers:
- the rendering of many black & white and color silver-halide films based on measurements of their characteristics and on tests conducted by DxO;
- the true grain of the films, copied from authentic test films, with adjustable dimensions and intensity;
- the possibility of mixing a rendering with a different grain to develop one’s own films;
- the use of colored filters and metallic toning for creative effect in black & white
Uses for DxO FilmPack
In comparison with the many modifications that a photo editor might make, DxO FilmPack offers quick and highly effective solutions for easily transforming your digital files in order to:
- discover the magic of classic silver-halide films and the variety of images that can be obtained by changing sensitive media: What used to be possible to do through exposure on classic film can now be reproduced on your computer;
- rediscover the rendering of a classic film to match photos taken several years ago on film and recent digital photos to display in an exhibition or for a book;
- give texture to enlargements to avoid the overly smooth or even “plastic” feel that is a common critic of digital photos, as the addition of a grain gives density and relief visible to the eye when printed on large format paper;
- freely combine the desired renderings to explore without limits the artistic creation that was the privilege of virtuoso chemists in the darkroom only a few years ago.
