DxO Labs has announced DxO FilmPack 3 and offering it at a special launch price starting at US$49 until Sept. 30.
DxO FilmPack 3 allows photographers to recreate black and white or color film stocks on their digital images in one click. It’s compatible with Mac OS X (10.5 and higher) and Windows.
In addition to 10 new film looks and 10 new color filters, DxO FilmPack 3 also features new tools that provide photographers with full control of their images: creation of customized film looks; hue/saturation/lightness sliders for additional color creative control; a channel mixer for extended Black & White rendering styles; vignetting to give images a particular look; and a noise removal tool for more authentic grain rendering
DxO FilmPack 3’s interface has been completely revamped, according to DxO Labs CEO Jerome Meniere. Photographers can now choose among the numerous built-in film looks thanks to the user-friendly filmstrip, he adds.

Each DxO FilmPack 3 license includes the standalone application as well as plug-ins for Adobe Photoshop CS4/CS5, Adobe Lightroom 3, Apple Aperture 3, and DxO Optics Pro 6. In addition, DxO FilmPack 3 can be used as a Smart Filter in Adobe Photoshop. All can be simultaneously installed on two computers.
Compatible with Mac and Windows, DxO FilmPack 3 is available in two editions, Essential and Expert, which differ in terms of available film renderings and features. For details go to http://www.dxo.com/us/photo .
