FilmLab Desktop 2.5 for Mac and Windows is coming out of beta testing and the official version is being released today! The negative conversion software has been in beta testing since the announcement of the upgraded 2.5 version in December 2022.

The software will go live on along with a new user guide and new pricing. A subscription can be had for $7.99 monthly or $59.99 annually or you can purchase a lifetime license for $199.99. Licenses cover full access on all devices to the software which doesn’t rely on any other programs to run.

Updates mentioned in the original release article include batch processing, crop and perspective correction tools, non-destructive editing, and viewing images as thumbnails.

If you have macOS 10.12 (Sierra) or Windows 8.1, the FilmLab Desktop 2.5 will be compatible with your computer. In the last update we posted about FilmLab, Abe said he would like to make the software available for older hardware and systems as long as possible, but this may pose a challenge in the future depending on the nature of support needed for older systems.
