Thank You meanwhile & Prog!
Just started working with it - so far appears to be a worthwhile upgrade - comparing with some images I did last night on v.7.5.4
Mac users should remove "_Setup.exe" (just after "_OpticsPro8") and replace with ".dmg" in Prog's link.
Comparing this program to LR or Photoshop Camera RAW is erroneous.
(Though the different workflows can be co-joined via the DNG format.)
If you are looking for "quick" you won't find it with DxO. However, if you are looking for superior quality you are Home... no comparison IMO.
You gotta work this girl to get to the sweet spot for every image, but so worth it when you do... definitely not an amateur's program.
