It supports several file types, such as JPEG and TIFF. The interface is modern and professional, divided into three main areas for organizing, customizing and processing pictures. Thanks to the Explorer-based folder structure, you can seamlessly navigate directories to locate images. It is possible to set the image viewing to before-and-after mode, sort and filter items in the directory by various criteria (e.g. dimensions, lens, ISO speed, rating), rotate items, create virtual copies, as well as to apply presets for color, light detail and geometry adjustment. In the next step you are given tools for customizing the pictures when it comes to the RGB white balance, exposure compensation, “DxO Smart Lighting”, contrast, color accentuation, manual RGB noise, distortion, vignetting, and chromatic aberration. Standard drawing functions include hand, zoom, crop, dust removal, and horizon. The last step focuses on output settings in regard to the format (e.g. JPEG, TIFF, TIFF 8 bits, DNG, Web 800 pixels, Print 12 inches). It is possible to process multiple images at once, as well as to export them to Adobe Lightroom or upload them to Flickr. DxO Optics Pro allows you to undo and redo your actions, and it supports hotkeys and plugins, such as Apple, Canon and Sony camera bodies. The tool is surprisingly light on the system resources and supplies tutorials. We have not come across any issues in our tests. All in all, DxO Optics Pro is an all-around professional product dedicated to image enhancement and processing.
