New Click Black / Gray / White tool
This tool is a great way to quickly set curve points based on image content, to neutralize and deepen shadows and set the output white point. This much-requested feature from Bibble Labs’ customers further expands the wide array of image adjustments possible in Bibble 5.
Powerful 3rd Party Plug-ins
This release also includes the free version of Andrea – a powerful and exciting plugin for Bibble 5 build by Sean Puckett. Rediscover 90 years of traditional photo films and papers in B&W and color! Andrea, the film simulator for Bibble 5, takes your digital camera back to the film era with picture perfect simulations of image-making classics! Andrea is the evolution of AndyPRO, the preeminent film simulator for Bibble 4, and contains all of the simulations from AndyPRO.
2 New Cameras & 13 Newly Calibrated Lenses
Rapid updates for RAW file support for new cameras was a hallmark of Bibble 4, and we’re thrilled to be able to return to that tradition with Bibble 5. Two new RAW formats have been added, color reproduction quality for several current cameras have been improved, and this release also adds 13 newly calibrated lenses – based of community generated lens calibration data. This version also includes fixes for several issues found in the initial 5.0 release.
