DxO Labs announced today the release of DxO Optics Pro v5.1 for the Mac and Windows platforms.

And what's more, to celebrate the 4th birthday of the company's award-winning image enhancement software, DxO are giving away copies of FilmPack v1.2 with every purchase of Optics Pro before June 30th.

DxO Optics Pro v5.1 is the latest version of the company's flagship software application for automatic image quality enhancement for Digital-SLR camera users.

The software supports a wide range of digital cameras including, the Canon EOS 450D, Canon EOS 40D, Canon EOS 1Ds Mark
III, the Nikon D60, Nikon D300, Nikon D3 and the Samsung GX20.

Version 5.1 brings breakthrough RAW conversion and new functionalities to Mac users. With the input from the DxO Optics Pro v5 Macintosh public beta incorporated into the application, Mac users now have access to DxO's innovative RAW conversion engine which includes a completely new demosaicing algorithm producing images with much more detail and fewer artifacts.

The new version also includes the new tool to remove dust and blemishes from any digital image. Once dust and blemishes have been marked by the user, DxO Optics Pro v5.1 can automatically process any number of images with this particular dust/blemish template.

The DxO Optics Pro v5.1 is available now from £99, with the upgrade available from £59. If you purchased version 5 after August 1st 2007, you can get an upgrade at no cost and still be in for the free DxO FilmPack software. Just remember, the offer ends on June 30th.
