Sale on all DxO products through June 15, 2014
May 21, 2014 - DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO Optics Pro v9.5 for Mac and Windows, the latest upgrade of its image processing software of reference for all demanding photographers. DxO Optics Pro v9.5 offers a new image transfer feature that lets users process their RAW photos from Lightroom. Used in tandem with the Adobe software, DxO Optics Pro has definitively become the ideal solution when it comes to image quality.
This upgrade also adds support for 4 new cameras as well as 165 new DxO Optics Modules.
The first workflow completely integrated with Lightroom
Up until now, exporting a RAW image from Lightroom to another software application required first converting 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 to DxO Optics Pro, process them, and then return them to Lightroom in DNG format, which retains the qualities of 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 their photos.

The power of DxO processing accessible in just one click
Accessible directly from Lightroom, this workflow puts all of DxO’s image quality know-how into the hands of Adobe software users:
- The quality of its RAW conversion based on prior calibration of each sensor;
- 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 during batch processing, thus saving users a significant amount of time.
DxO Optics Pro is the first software to offer a ready-to-use solution for extracting RAW images from the Lightroom cataloguer that perfectly preserves the links between the original images and the processed images.
Increased compatibility with XMP standard
With the aim of facilitating its workflow with Lightroom, DxO Optics Pro v9.5 offers greater compatibility with the XMP standard: star or color rankings stored in image metadata are now perfectly preserved during transfer.
More than 18,000 available Optics Modules
DxO Optics Pro supports most current camera models on the market. DxO Optics Pro v9.5 now handles RAW files from 4 additional cameras: the Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II, the Nikon 1 V3, the Panasonic Lumix GH-4, and the Sony A6000.
Finally, 165 new camera/lens combinations have been added to the library, which today counts more than 18,000 available DxO Optics Modules.
