DXO Optics 8 review at PC Pro: "This software isn’t as multitalented as Lightroom, but it’s more streamlined and just as polished"

'Streamlined'? Last time i gave it a try, I was forced to hop back and forth like a rabbit, but that last time was also my first time with image editing software from France. Maybe, after so many years, i should give it one more try. The reviewer is Ben Pitt, and the edition he is reviewing is the Plebs 'Standard' one, meaning it doesn't support any full frame Dslr cameras, nor any Leicas:

"DxO’s Organise module gives direct access to your PC’s folders, so there’s no need to go through a convoluted import process. Sorting and filtering options are limited, and it’s possible to create virtual folders inside Optics Pro to bring photos together from disparate sources. A star rating system is used, but the ratings we’d added in Lightroom and embedded in the files weren’t recognised. The lack of a visible undo history is also disappointing. All edits are non-destructive so it

isn’t difficult to readjust any parameter, but we found we missed Lightroom’s elegant History panel.

DxO and Lightroom both have strengths and weaknesses. Lightroom wins for features, with its excellent search, filter and tagging facilities, attractive maps and powerful local editing tools. However, Optics Pro’s more streamlined approach is a virtue, and its superior lens profile database often yields superior results."
