Info updated on:

The utility converts your photos to RAW and JPEG formats. It features multiple settings to configure and optimize the quality of a processed image, remove noise, adjust lighting, recover colors, enhance sharpness and details. The program is suitable for beginners.

DxO Photolab is mainly intended to enhance your photographs. In this respect, it allows adjusting such parameters as hue, saturation and luminosity. The tool has the main advantage of editing and converting RAW files. In this respect, it is great news that it supports practically every camera brand, which it uses to make the necessary adjustments automatically.

DxO Photolab has a nicely design interface that supports two modes: PhotoLibrary and Customize. In the first mode, the tool can index the photos in the selected folders, which you can then search using such data as date, focal length and ISO settings. Regrettably, it is all restricted to using Exif info as it does not let you add Exif to your photographs. It is also a shame that the program cannot import from media.

The Customize mode, in turn, is the one you can use to edit your photographs. Luckily, the program does not modify the original files as part of their processing. An interesting editing feature is its Repair Tool, which allows removing unwanted objects. Although the quality of the job depends on the existence of a consistent texture near the object, it generally produces decent results. more
