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.

Just an anecdote about this company's commercial policy. I am a pro photographer (real estate and events) and business has almost stopped in 2020. I sent them an email asking if they could extend their promotional update offer until things got better for me (and I'm not the only one concerned, of course). Negative answer." Unfortunately, we do not offer payment in installments or payment terms." This pandemic period is so revealing.

It's expensive and somewhat slow but is extremely easy to operate and allows to create your own style and save this as presets. It offers local enhancements. This is a good starting point for your automated workflow, starting with RAW. - For me it was more intuitive to use than e.g. Adobe products or Capture1, although they may offer the same functions or quality.

BUYER BEWARE!!! I purchased an upgrade to v3.1.1.29 just two weeks ago. I received a, "New update email" but the link won't work? So, I tried going into my DxO Photolab and clicking on the update there, too ... also NO JOY? So, I searched this, their website and in order to download the update they want ANOTHER $111.43 for mw to increment to v3.1.1.31, on top of the full update price that I paid two weeks ago! Their is NO END TO THEIR GREED! I'm going to drop them and buy CaptureOne 20 Pro, instead. I tried it (for free) and it gives far better results with less work!

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.

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.
