DxO OpticsPro
The ultimate in image quality


DxO OpticsPro offers unparalleled rendering...automatically

DxO Smart Lighting: Between shadow and light

Uncover important details and textures in underexposed and overexposed areas of your image with Smart Lighting, DxO’s exclusive automatic exposure optimization. The information that you thought was absent in your RAW files is instantly revealed, even in strongly backlit areas and the deepest shadows. 


To further refine the different brightness ranges, from the darkest to the brightest areas, use the Selective Tone controls. For a more natural looking rendering of your images, the Shadows and Highlights sliders have been redesigned to recover the maximum amount of information without flattening the midtones.

The advent of Spot corrections


DxO OpticsPro 11 introduces a new feature, Spot Weighted mode, which provides the same results as as spot metering in camera, but with the added benefit of post-capture fine-tuning capabilities.


Smart Lighting uses face detection to apply an intelligent tone map on the entire image, to better extend the dynamic range, add fill light, and improve contrast while optimizing illumination on faces.



PRIME 2016: Don’t be afraid of the dark anymore

Detailed and stunning images, even at the highest ISO values: DxO OpticsPro’s revolutionary DxO PRIME 2016 denoising technology has been designed to achieve optimal photographic quality. Its advanced algorithms read your camera calibration data, then analyze the image structure in depth to differentiate between noise and fine details with an unprecedented degree of automated precision. For each pixel, nearly a thousand neighboring pixels are studied to identify their similarities and to recombine information, resulting in perfectly denoised photos.

Even faster and more efficient


Bokehs and smooth transitions are even better preserved, as are fine details and colors, particularly in the shadows; and textures are conserved to produce images of exceptional quality. 


With a newly-optimized algorithm, the DxO PRIME 2016 technology processes your RAW files up 4 times faster than before: in fact, the higher the sensitivity, the bigger the benefit of processing time.


4x faster



Tailor-made optical corrections that defy the laws of optics

In our laboratories, using state-of-the-art scientific calibration and testing technologies, DxO’s engineers have compiled the world’s largest library of information regarding cameras and lenses. With now nearly 30,000 optics module combinations at the ready for you to download when needed, DxO OpticsPro can automatically apply the most precise corrections, perfectly adapted to your exact photographic equipment.


DxO OpticsPro corrects all the optical defects in your photos with unrivaled quality: distortion (barrel, pincushion, and fisheye); vignetting; chromatic aberrations; and lens softness, by homogenizing the sharpness from the center to the corners of the image.
