Review: DxO Optics Pro

updated 01:45 am EDT, Tue August 23, 2011

Editing software takes on Adobe

The team behind DxO Optics Pro take a different approach to the task of editing RAW, JPG and TIF images taken with digital cameras: they start by creating settings customized to the camera, which removes flaws in the lens or sensor and makes manual editing less work. Chromatic aberrations, lens distortions, off-centered shots and noise are artfully corrected, leaving the user to "focus" on the image itself. Is it a better approach that can challenge Photoshop and Lightroom's dominance? Is it the right tool for a hobbyist or professional? We seek out the answers in our exclusive review of this often-overlooked software.
