Optics Pro for free?
« on: October 06, 2017, 03:22:15 pm »
An acquaintance emailed me this link: http://www.dxo.com/us/practicalphotography

It purports to be a link for a free copy of Optics Pro and he wanted to know if it was real. Does anyone know anything about this?

Yes it is free but it is not the Elite version.

Is Optics Pro doing so badly in the retail market that they are now giving it away in the hopes of people upgrading to Elite? Or is something else going on?

This is very good software but perhaps the competition is so severe that they are not doing well?

Likely a "teaser" before announcing DOP 12, rumored to be out before the end of the year. My guess is that DOP 12 will be a significant upgrade, and giving away the "standard" DOP 11 is a throw-away to expand the market for potential new DOP 12 customers. Just a guess. We shall see.  ;)
