Photo editing software that does not call home like Adobe, yet works with Lightroom.
Hard to tell from the site. Might be a one day deal or go for the week. Posted as a one day deal. YMMV

This software is on sale for the same price at the DXO Online Store. They have the "Essential" Version for $64 US (regular $129). There is also a link to help you decide which version best suites your needs:

There is also a page where you can check to see if your camera's raw format is supported:

shop.dxo.com want $14.90 USD to include a CD, the DVD is included from B&H (no idea of shipping from dxo). Either way camera updates are required from dxo.

Thanks for the links on camera compatibility for raw. I was surprised my D100 is not, where my D200 is.

I have DXO version 8 which they gave away free at one point. It's really great software for processing RAW files, it really makes a huge difference to the quality of the photos.

Either you are spaced out, I left a space out or both. ;-)
Admittedly I left a space out. Title should read: DxO OpticsPro 10 Elite Edition - $99.50 USD + FS

Lightroom also has an extensive lens correction database.

I'm a huge Lightroom CC user. I tried the trial of DXO Pro Elite edition. What's so great about this software?

It's missing a lot of key features such as the healing brush in Lightroom. Anyone who shoots portraits uses that a ton.

They loudly trumpet that DXO intregrates well with Lightroom, but I don't see the need for this software if you own Lightroom. (I haven't tried CaptureOne, but I heard it refuses to accept DNG files so I would never use it for that reason alone.)

How is this software better than Lightroom? The default RAW processing looks good, but so does Lightroom, and Lightroom also does a lot more...

I'm not trolling, just asking fans of DXO why they prefer it over Lightroom. What are the awesome features that I'm missing?

I'm not expert, but I do own both. Each has its strengths. In DXO I like its lens correction, PRIME noise reduction for RAW files and clearview filter (helps i.e. with hockey shots thru Plexiglas).
Usually I use DXO, for lens correction, NR and other mintor changes, then I export the picture into LR6 for final touches i.e. local brushes.

I bought both software on special along with brand new D7200. The combo should last me for many years ;-)

Just my $0.05 :-)

Thanks. So I take it your opinion is that DXO 10 Elite is worth the extra $130 or so CDN for Lightroom 6 users?

I'm not against spending money if it makes my photos look better. I pay Adobe 15 bucks CDN a month to use Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC. That's 180 bucks a year, not cheap.

I mainly shoot portraits and models though and go through about 400 photos in a shoot. Is DXO still a good option for fast batch processing?

I think you will find that it is not a matter of using either one or the other, like amd111 says many use both.

If I'm not mistaken there is a free trial. Why don't you give it a spin for a few days. I'm not sure how long the special is until.
