Local adjustments


Nik Software’s U Point technology is now a part of DxO PhotoLab’s non-destructive workflow, allowing you to fully express your original intentions by adding local adjustments as well as automatic corrections to your RAW and JPEG files.

  • Control Points

    Select the area you would like to edit by adding Control Points to your photo. Combine, add, or delete points and preserve specific areas of your image. Use the local adjustment palette, which appears next to the area you’re currently editing, to instantly change exposure, contrast, micro-contrast, vibrancy, saturation, or even white balance.

  • Brush

    Use the Brush tool to edit areas you want to correct. Modify and adjust your mask by adding or removing a part of the selection. Adjust the tool’s flow and opacity to create transparent masks. Use the Automatic Mask tool to make dynamic masks that automatically detect similar colors throughout your image.

  • Graduated Filter

    Apply simulated graduated neutral-density (ND) filters and give free rein to your creativity. Adjust the exposure of the sky as well as the contrast and vibrancy, draw attention to your main subject by darkening the edges of your image, add a blur effect, and much, much more.

  • Automatic Repair

    Edit a trouble spot and let the Automatic Tepair tool replace it with another, more suitable part of the image. Take advantage of lightning-quick processing and get a seamless result by removing dust particles or small parts of the image you don’t want to keep.

PRIME denoising technology

DxO PhotoLab lets you significantly reduce noise in your RAW files. DxO’s exclusive denoising technology effectively decreases noise in photos taken in extreme lighting conditions while also preserving details and color.






Smooth transitions between sharp and blurred elements are still preserved, as are fine details and colors, particularly in the shadows. Textures are preserved as well, resulting in exceptionally high-quality images.


PRIME Denoising Before
PRIME Denoising After





With its newly-optimized algorithm, DxO PhotoLab’s PRIME technology processes your RAW files up four times faster than in previous versions of DxO OpticsPro. In fact, the higher the sensitivity value, the faster the processing time.



Up to 4x faster

DxO Smart Lighting exposure correction


Automatic optimization



Reveal details and textures in underexposed or overexposed areas with DxO Smart Lighting. This feature instantly brings out details you thought were missing from your RAW files—even with strong backlighting. Use the Selective Tone tool to fine-tune the various luminosity ranges—from the darkest to the brightest areas in your image.

Spot Weighted mode



With Spot Weighted mode, you can adjust your corrections based on specific areas in your image. Smart Lighting determines the appropriate action by analyzing faces or areas that you specify in manual mode and applies the action to the entire image. This feature takes away the guessing game—you can push the sliders as far as you want without making your subjects appear unnatural.
