The combination of these unique tools is said to provide image editors with the software tools necessary to create the most accurate and efficient image alterations. By adapting techniques that mimic the way the human eye and brain see edges and objects, Fluid Mask 3 identifies the outline of the various colors, textures and shades, and separates the image into individual puzzle-like pieces to enable the easiest and most accurate masks available. The unique tools included in DxO Optics Pro allow users to perform batch enhancements of their digital images, eliminating distortions, optimizing exposure, dynamic range, and correcting noise (to name just few corrections) in a few clicks of the mouse. Fine tuning image effects with DxO FilmPack allows users to mimic the style and grain of the most celebrated conventional films, by reproducing the aesthetic properties of these film types and applying them with a single click.

Fluid Mask 3 includes more powerful and accurate blending than its predecessor along with an improved "Smart Blending" capability unique to the software, a more effective edge detection system, and more intuitive workflow resources. With these improved capabilities, Fluid Mask 3 is currently available for both Windows and Mac based operating systems, and will continue to function as a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop CS2, CS3 & Elements; and for the first time will also work in stand alone mode. The new product is available for download through the Vertus website at

DxO Optics Pro is the multi-award-winning digital image enhancement tool incorporating revolutionary optics, noise and exposure corrections in an easy-to-use, feature rich application for Mac and PC users.

DxO FilmPack v1.2 enables digital photographers to add the effects -- in terms of color and grain - of more than 20 slides, black-and-white and color negative films. DxO FilmPack even permits users to combine the color rendition and grain profiles of different films. When used within DxO Optics Pro, the DxO FilmPack effects can even be applied to RAW images, providing even greater color accuracy. Version 1.2 of DxO FilmPack is available as an Adobe Photoshop plug-in for Photoshop CS2, CS3 and Photoshop Elements 4 & 5, as a stand-alone application and as an add-on to DxO Optics Pro 4.2 or greater.
