Ratings and Reviews
Was great, now mediocre
The application worked great for a years, but it seems it doesn't get maintained much anymore. Where is the support for importing HEIF photos direct from newer iPhones without having to jump through hoops? Too many times photos import and then say "Oops, this photo is not supported."
Works pretty much as advertised, but annoyances
First, it seems as if the first user documentation you will see is at least 2 years out of date. Photos, because Apple likes to mess with us, no longer has the same extensions interface, and DXO have not kept up. It seesm they are stuck in El Capitan. You have to click the little ellipsis at the top of the edit page to access extensions. It is there. It launches slowly and saves slowly, though.
Second, it doesn’t always recognize your lens and camera, even though they are right there in the EXIF data. There doesn’t seem to be any recourse. You can’t manually force it to correct for your lens.
Artist Using DxO for Reference Photos
WOW - thanks so much for making this! Now I can alter my reference shots in just the way they need to be, preserving the mood of the natural light and enhancing the details. I’m such a happy camper now. :)
