without having to convert everything to DNGs.
It has the most precise lens correction catalog of any program I have tried so far. Not only lens correction, but in relation to specific camera bodies. (caveat: I have a seriously outmoded Canon 17-35mm f/2.8 that was superseded 10+ years ago. BUT DXO Optics found a similar lens, the Sigma 17-35mm f/2.8 and the correction is spot on.)
After you do all your Camera RAW edits in DXO, you then can export the edited image as a high res/high quality JPG into photo editor of your choice (Tested export on Corel PSP 6, 7, 8,and 9x, Zoner Photo Studio 16, 17, 18 and 19, Photoshop CS 5, 6, CC, Lightroom 5x, 6x, and Affinity for PC)
You can let DXO do it automatically, or you can customize your editing.
But you don’t have to wait until your photo editing software is outmoded before installing and using DXO, as the RAW editing is above and beyond with Adobe Camera Raw is capable of doing regardless of what version you’re currently using.
Pricing.. well, it’s less than what it costs to ‘Rent” Adobe Photoshop Creative cloud for the year. There are two versions. Essential Edition, and Elite Edition. And, you can try before you buy
