Maybe, maybe not. Okay, first off, this app is fantastic. It’s got a great GUI on top of a powerful RAW convertor and it’s fairly easy and fast to make your images pop very nicely. And unlike most of the other image apps, you can make adjustments to your photos without actually looking like they’ve been processed. With a light hand you’ll find that everything looks ‘natural’ as if you shot it that way. The results are honestly exceptional. Now the bad part: Even if you buy the $199 ‘Elite’ version it’s still crippled by not coming with fairly necessary plugins which DxO sells separately in their FilmPack and ViewPoint plugins sets. So, $199 for DxO Elite, $129 for the FimPack Elite, and $79 for the ViewPoint 2 set and you’re up to $407 smackeroos to edit your imagery. Apparently there’s a ‘bundle’ with all the packs thrown in for a discounted $289, which pretty much brings it on par, pricewise, with Capture One Pro. But I dunno, finding out in the demo you have to install some of these basic tools for an extra cost makes it feel like you just downloaded a fart app from the iOS app store and it’s gonna be another $2.99 for the “Ripper” sound effect. I didn’t buy the app just to hear a “Poot,” I bought it fully expecting to “Rip” one, you know what I’m saying? Just tell me what it costs, don’t obfuscate with FOUR different versions (Essential or Essential Bundle, and Elite or Elite Bundle). In car dealerships this is called “Bait & Switch.” Maybe this high a price isn’t a problem for professional photographers making their living, but it’s way out of league for us prosumers. There’s a huge hole in the market since Apple took Aperture out back and shot it. There’s a lot of junk that’s little more than Instagram filters and high end apps like this that are just way out reach of most amateur photographer’s pocketbook. For the price point you’d be better off getting Affinity Photo since it offers almost all the benefits of DxO and its film packs but at a fraction of the price. Too bad. I was literally pulling out my wallet when I realized that DxO Optics Pro had a lot of hidden costs. But one of the things you have to think about with these apps is how much will upgrading cost me down the line? At this price point I can’t convince myself to enter their ecosphere. But, like I said, GREAT software. Maybe the best I’ve seen so far. It’s just out of my price range. TL;DR DxO Optics Pro is like dating that super hot girl who always wants you to buy her things.

BUYER BEWARE!!! I purchased DxO PhotoLab 2 along with DxO Nik Collection version 1 just three months ago. DxO just updated the Nik Collection to version 2 and will not provide an update for existing owners of the Nik Collection unless PhotoLab 2 is purchased all over again (ie forcing existing PhotoLab 2 owners to buy two copies of the same software) in order to just update their copy of the Nik Collection from version 1 to version 2. Shame on you DxO, I will never purchase anything from your company again.

I am quite upset with this company and its product. I bought PL version 1 to process my Oly and Leica T files. It worked very well. It became an essential part of my workflow. I sold the T and bought a Leica CL. While the CL's files are DNGs, PL I and II fails to recognize them. It is the ONLY raw processor I have (and I have many) that does not "see" those files. I wrote to the company on various occasions over the last year. They have, in essence, blown me off. I loved the program's "PRIME" noise reduction feature, among other things, and have been unable to use it for my CL files. I will NEVER purchase another one of their products. The company is unresponsive and simply doesn't care about the needs of its customers. I really tried hard to reason with the; all to no avail. Purchase at your own risk. And, whatever you do, make absolutely sure that your camera is supported, especially if it creates DNGs. I've tried all kinds of workarounds. All failed. I'm a pro fotog, and I can't tell you how frustrating this has been. They deserve to fail.

sorry to hear it doesn't support your Leica CL raw files, DxO hasn't supported the Monochrom since it's inception nor do they plan on supporting it. And no Andrew they don't listen to requests, they are very arrogant when you talk to them

DxO PhotoLab works wonders on my Olympus .ORF files. Compared with Lightroom images are sharper, chromatic aberration is reduced and I can usually recover some extra pixels on the edges of the image. And the PRIME noise reduction is phenomenal. I used to limit my cameras to ISO 3200, but now I'll go to 6400 or even higher if I need to because PRIME is so good. I still use Lightroom as my main RAW converter, and for managing my catalogue of images, but I turn to PhotoLab once the going gets tough.

My main RAW converter. I love that it doesn't require a database and you can just point it to a folder to start working away. The lens and camera profiles are very good, and it's proprietary technologies are awesome.

I'm getting VERY annoyed that I come here to MacUpdate and the Site takes control of my Browser and opens-up these Windows that I don't care about. I can only assume your company pays MacUpdate to have them do this.

Try Affinity Photo. It is a great Photoshop/Lightroom replacement at an affordable price. No extra gotchyous.

With respect: the Film pack and the View point plug-ins are not "fairly necessary", in fact, they're not necessarily at all. As in, you do not need them at all. The app does what it does - and very well - without them. They simply give you more options. For example, the film pack offers presets that mimic popular analogue film looks. And if you don't want to mimic analogue film, why spend the money?

How is this any better than Capture One Pro (8.1.1) by Phase One? I have never experienced any raw converter that is remotely as good as what Phase One has done with Capture One in terms of noise reduction, sharpening and such.

Just stick with what works best for you. Don't change your workflow just because something looks better.. The only way you can ever know is to just try the demo. Photos are a personal thing and if COP works for you stay with it.
