The process allows users to move raw files from their Lightroom catalogue to DxO Optics Pro in one click, process them, and then return them to Lightroom in DNG format.

Previously, this would have required converting the raw files to JPEG or Tiff format.

Lightroom users will now have quick easy access to DxO Optics Pro’s most celebrated features, including its PRIME de-noising technology and DxO Smart Lighting for recovery of highlights.
