While DxO Filmpack is able to read most proprietary rAW files, it is still advisable to make essential tweaks in your rAW editor. Make cropping decisions, sharpen and apply lens corrections.
OPEN IN EDITOR
Locate the image, rightclick and choose Open. this will reveal an editor window, at the right side of which is a selection of presets. Browse until you find an appropriate style and click on the preset.
click the slider icon next to Modify. Adjust brightness, colour bias and contrast, to balance highlights and shadows. use the straighten tools to make final adjustments to composition.
WORK WITH GRAIN
DxO Filmpack can recreate the look of film types, including the grain and texture of various emulsions. if your image has noise in flat tones, this can look more intentional with a light application.
under Development you can use simplified contrast and exposure sliders. Alternatively, the tone curve can be used to target specific tones and alter the rGB mix, for bespoke tweaks.
EXPERIMENT WITH EFFECTS PANEL
For handheld images that are lacking in absolute sharpness, adding a light paper grain can hide blurring. choose a colour tone from the menu to emulate film processing.
