DxO PhotoLab 4 Wins Award for Best Professional Photo-Editing Software

Congratulations to DxO for winning another TIPA award for its excellent PhotoLab software. Last year DxO won the award for best imaging software with PhotoLab 3. This year they repeat the achievement with DxO PhotoLab 4.

What the Technical Image Press Association recognized in PhotoLab 4 was the excellent performance of DeepPRIME artificial intelligence technology, which outpaced all other solutions in the market in terms of demosaicing and denoising.

Available in DxO PhotoLab 4 Elite, DeepPRIME is an artificial intelligence technology dedicated to developing RAW photo files. Trained with deep learning technology using the millions of photos DxO’s laboratories have analysed for the past 15+ years, DxO DeepPRIME drastically improves digital noise reduction while also delivering more effective demosaicing.


Why I Use PhotoLab

Personally, I’ve used DxO PhotoLab since the first version and before that it’s predecessor Photo Optics. The reason I use it is because of the excellent image quality it delivers. My only criticism is the lack of support for my Fuji XT cameras which is currently my main system. But when I’m processing images from my Micro 43 cameras (and I have a lot), I turn to PhotoLab to ensure the best quality.

If you haven’t already tried PhotoLab for processing your RAW files I would encourage you to test it out. You can download a trial version of the software from the DxO website. Also be sure to download the camera and lens modules in the software when prompted. These make a huge difference to the final quality of your images.

A PhotoLab Alternative

Despite me thinking DxO PhotoLab is great, you might be happy with your current RAW converter. If you are, you can still benefit from the excellent DxO technologies using DxO PureRAW. This is a pre-processor for RAW files, handling the demosaicing and optical corrections to produce a DNG file. You can process the DNG file in your usual RAW converter. It’s well worth testing this out if you want to continue with your current RAW converter.

I can’t wait to see what DxO produce next.
