Feature Requests\Suggestions for Analog Efex 2

Analog Efex Pro 2

  • Arrange Custom presets into folders.
  • Set the Pincushion\Barrel to a numeric percentage in Lens Distortion
  • Ability to edit Tone Maps in the “Film Type” section either as Multipoint Gradients, or as Tritone\Polytones
  • Ability to upload custom textures for use in Photo Plate, Dirt & Scratches and everywhere else these are used
  • Blend Modes and Masks for layers e.g. if I just want the outline of a Photo plate to leave the centre unaffected.

Thank you for these requests, we will analyze and sort them before decide what we can do for the next update.

Im new to DXO. But this is the first thread i’ve found relating to being able to add/import additional textures. Is this possible? The film frame textures are limiting and would look repetitive in some case for a photo book im making,



I’m also interested to know if there is a way to add more/custom textures. I imagine the defaults will be recognisable by now.

Yes I also would like to add our own textures The ones available are few and everyone uses it. I want an unique image done with my textures and backgrounds. 2 years and no feedback. It should not be that difficult to implement.

It would be awesome if we at least had the ability to rotate/flip photo plate textures.

Please let us import our own plates or textures. I have to deactivate those options in analog pro v5 because I don’t want to use the same texture or scratch that thousand others are using.

Thank you

You can always simply add your own PNG files to the Textures folder.


Would that apply too for PhotoLab, Mark ?

Absolutely John! Give it a try.

Lobbing a ~.png into the “Textures” folder (as above) does not result in it appearing in PL’s Texture dialogue, Mark … which is not a surprise, as the list seems to be “hard-coded” (not fluid, according to the contents of the Texture folder).
image - This seems to be a fixed list of Textures.

Am I misunderstanding you ?


My apologies John, I was just assuming that it would work, but hadn’t actually tried it. Thanks for checking. Now we know that it doesn’t work.

It may not be working as hoped for because you also have to add a preview.png which may be more difficult to create. I haven’t tried it myself.


I have tried that Mark. It didn’t work. I’m still working on it!
