The first workflow completely integrated with Lightroom

Up until now, exporting a RAW image from Lightroom to another software application required firstconverting it to JPEG or TIFF format, which can reduce image quality. DxO Optics Pro v9.5 offers the first non-destructive workflow that is completely integrated with Lightroom.

This very simple process lets users transfer their RAW images in one click from the Lightroom cataloguer toDxO Optics Pro, process them, and then return them to Lightroom in DNG format, which retains the qualitiesof a RAW file so as to facilitate additional processing.

The dual non-destructive flow gives users optimal flexibility right through to the final adjustments to theirphotos.

Accessible directly from Lightroom, this workflow puts all of DxO’s image quality know-how into the hands ofAdobe software users:

  • - The efficiency of its exclusive PRIME technology in eliminating noise, even under the most extreme

    shooting conditions;

  • - The power and precision of its optical corrections which, based on the calibration of each

    camera/lens combination, eliminates distortion, chromatic aberrations, and vignetting, as well as

    restores image sharpness;

  • - The intelligent exposure optimization of its DxO Smart Lighting feature, which among other things

    allows for perfect recovery of highlights.

    DxO Optics Pro automatically adjusts all of these parameters to produce an optimized rendering duringbatch processing, thus saving users a significant amount of time.
