Ratings and Reviews
Good extension for $10 but would be much more helpful with batch editing
This functions well for editing correcting lens distortion individually but editing 100s of photos would take ages. It may be a limitation of the way Photos is set up, but if DxO figured out a way to do lens correction for 100s of photos in a batch (like lightroom) that would be very, very useful (5+ stars).
All the same, if you want your photos syncing with iCloud, it’s a good way to fix the most distored photos from your DSLR lens (and maybe the only way besides exporting and re-importing?_.
Thank You, Thank You!
While this is a simple plug in for Photos it is an awesome one. I knew that optical corrections could be made for my various lenses but had no clue how powerful that could be. I love the fact that is a plug in. It solves the problem of exporting pictures, editing and re-importing them from Photos App.
I’ve been staying up late at night rediscovering the beauty of old photos that “pop" after applying the corrections from this handy plug in. Well done. This is probably not as dramatic an improvement for camera phone pictures, but for a DSRL enthusiast it’s just plain fantastic.
Tip: If the lens correction seems to incorrectly say: "No DxO Optics modules available for this image," try “revert to original first.” This solves the issue for me every time.
Must have for Photos and RAW editing
My original review wasn’t so kind because there was a bug prevented the optics module from working. But I contacted tech support and they were right on it. With that fixed, I can say I’m pretty happy with this App. It’s the only app extension for Photos that will correct lense distortion, which makes it a must have for me. I’m trying to simplify my workflow by using Photos for management and editing only through extensions. This one is easy to use and the optics, lighting, noise, and DxO Clearview corrections make any photo look great in just a few seconds. With those corrections made, other photos extensions can do further creative styling as needed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
