PhotoLab release (U Point© local adjustment technology)

Hi all,

After long months of waiting, we are particularly pleased to announce the acquisition of the Nik Collection by DxO and the simultaneous release of DxO Photolab, the new version of DxO OpticsPro that incorporates U Point© technology.

DxO PhotoLab introduces a comprehensive local retouching solution that is fully integrated into a non-destructive RAW workflow and includes former Nik Software’s U Point technology; an auto mask brush; a graduated filter; and a new Repair tool. In addition to these brand-new features, its RAW-file automatic Lens Sharpness correction feature has also been dramatically enhanced.

The ESSENTIAL and ELITE editions of DxO PhotoLab for PC and Mac can be acquired from the DxO website (
