***DxO PhotoLab Early Access program is starting for 2021-2022! (All information to apply inside)***

Hello everyone :slight_smile:

We’re starting DxO PhotoLab’s Early Access program for the 2021-2022 period!
As for last year, you’ll find all needed information on this post!

And as always, enjoy and spread the words to people who may be interested in participating.
We count on you :wink:


What is the beta-test program?
Beta-test program allows the participants to thoroughly test unreleased future versions of our software, while discussing directly with the product owner and the development team.

Who can join?
Everyone who wishes to actively use our software, whether as a main or secondary solution to edit their RAW.

What do we want from you?
We’d like to remind you that being part of beta-testing, and directly in contact with the people who craft this software is a privilege.
So we expect you to follow 4 simple rules :

  • Actively participate in building the future of our flagship software: As we continuously deliver beta versions during the year, we’re asking you to give us feedback on a regular basis. We can understand that some timeframes can be busier than others, but as long as we hear from you regularly, that’s all what matters.
  • Stay polite and respectful towards the DxO staff and, of course, other forums members: This is a must. No one is here to troll, feed the trolls, or act as a punchingball for others. Suggesting things and give feedback shouldn’t be an opportunity for some to show off superiority or anything. We’re all at the same level and work towards the same goal : improving our product so it will fit your needs better and better.
  • Be patient: We do our best to always read, think on and take into account your suggestions and ideas. That’s why we ask you to be patient and understanding, even if we take a long time to answer to your posts, or to have requested features implemented in the software. Some will be implemented fast, some will take longer, or won’t at all, as we have to follow specific strategies.
  • Confidentiality: to be part of this program, you’ll have to sign a NDA anyways, so we expect you to strictly respect this agreement.


I’m already a DxO PhotoLab Beta-tester, do I have to do anything to be part of the new program?
If you are already beta-testing DxO PhotoLab, you’ll have to apply to this new program.
We want it to be an active and personal decision, and not some automatic status set for you.
Basically, if you apply, fill the prerequisites and are notified to be accepted, you’ll keep on getting access to the private part of the forum. Otherwise, your account rights will be reseted to standard after the 14th of december.


>>> How to apply? <<<

First create an account on this forum and then send a direct message to my account, on this same forum, with the following informations:

  • First Name and Last Name
  • email adress you wish to use to be notified
  • What country are you from?
  • What platform do you use (Mac or Windows)?
  • What is your hardware configuration?
  • Are you a professional photographer?
  • What is your main type of photography?
  • What photographic gear do you use?
  • Do you already have a personal licence of DxO PhotoLab/OpticsPro? Which version?
  • What other solution(s) do you use on a regular basis in your workflow?

Note that we need to have this information to validated your profile, so please, take the time to send a complete one.
And YES, even if you already were a Beta-Tester, you’ll also need to send these information in order for us to have an accurate and up-to-date profile.
One final note: do NOT post personal information on this topic


Once you’ve applied, you’ll be notified if you’re part of the program or not by the 14th of december at the latest, so two weeks from now.

Please don’t send message to have an updated status in the meantime. You’ll have an answer anyways. So once again, as long as you’ve sent all the required information, you’ll just have to be patient.

If you have any questions please let us know by replying to this topic.
We repeat: Please, do not post your application on this topic. Only by direct message to my account. :wink:

We hope you’ll be part of this new adventure and wish you a great day and week.

Best regards,
The DxO Team.

If you do not follow these instructions, you will not be added to the EA list.

What is more, now everybody knows your personal details. You need to remove your post here and apply in the correct manner.

Thank you Joanna, it is removed. I was and still am under great pressure at the moment.

PM sent. Ready to get started!

DM sent, ready to get started.

And everyone, please read the instructions and send a DM and do not post your information in this topic (which luckily for you is only visible to EA members, who shouldn’t be after you). Every year many people make the same mistake.

This is in the regular forum not the EA area, so more caution is advised.

Ah ok my bad, you’re right I clicked out of the EA section. So CAUTION :warning:

Well I just logged out and, although I could see the forum, I couldn’t see this thread

That’s good to know, but I still wouldn’t post personal info on the open forum.

Joanna, I just tried the same thing and I could see this thread clearly. It’s in a lighter text than the other threads and down at the bottom of the list instead of on top.

Hahhaahah folks… you made me laugh, I have to admit :smiley:

I’ve cleaned all the posts “deleted by their author” to have a clean topic, and indeed, once again : do not post any personal information here. you have to send me a direct message (or private message if you will) here on the forum with your information for the application.

Thanks Joanna for pointing that out :wink:

@Altix, You need to send this information directly to @CaptainPO by private message. Delete your previous post with your private information. It is not supposed to be posted in this topic.



As told, privat means PM means click on captainPO to generate a privat message.
NOT in here this isn’t privat nor safe.
Please remove your data by knip and paste that in a pm.




Too funny dozens say not to do it and… it was done … again…
And i bet won’t be the last time

No it won’t be the last time. And if @Altix doesn’t revisit this thread and send this info directly to @CaptainPO he may discover he is not selected for the program. Since he is already an EA member I am surprised he posted his info here.
