Exactly what I needed! - Thank you, DxO! You have provided exactly what I needed. I rely upon lens corrections for my Canon EOS M and 22mm f2.0 lens–vignetting and edge distortion ruined an otherwise fast, cheap, decent quality lens, but there wasn’t an option in Photos to correct those issues easily. The Optical Corrections in this extension ALONE are worth the price. Took photos that were otherwise unusable and made them worth keeping. Beyond that, the noise reduction included in this DxO extension far outpaces what is built into Photos with a well balanced algorithm in two modes: High Quality and Prime. HQ is what I seem to use–takes less time process the photos–but if you have some very grainy, noisy photos, Prime has a good chance of saving them. And, if you want, there is also a haze removal which works well, if only in limited situations. The Smart Lighting feature is hit or miss for me. White Balance is similar to what’s included natively in the Photos App. Regardless, this is precisely what I needed. Thank You, DxO! If you are reading this, DxO and Apple, and are not in the process of doing so already, please consider adding a feature for batch processing with extensions. Processing with DxO for each photo, one at a time, is a bit painful if you have a good number of photos to go through. Thanks!
Only spordically recognizes my lens and camera - Only occasionally will the software recognize my Panasonic Lumix GX-7 and either my Panasonic 12-35mm 2.8 or 20mm 1.7 lenses. Both the camera and the lenses are recognized on the DxO website. Every so often an image will recognize my setup, but the very next picture taken seconds apart will not recognize. Some sort of bug which renders the software useless.

Lens Correction is Legit - Migrating from Lightroom and wanted something that could do lens corrections. This fits the bill. It correctly recognized my Canon EOS T4i (650D) paired with a Canon EF-S 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. One-click lens correction is accurate and makes a big difference. This is a great start, but it would be nice if they added the option to have some degree of control over the lens correction feature rather than just on/off. The one-click correction is great when it works, but it would be nice to have something for those times when it doesn’t work.
Slow to update - Can you please support HEIC/HEIF image format now that it is default on all new installs of iOS. All of the photos I have taken cannot be edited with this plugin. I reported this issue to DxO 4 months ago and they still refuse to update the application. HEIF is built into xcode now, you just need to recompile the plugin and HEIF support is included automatically.
Wow this is just amazing! - Thank you DxO for giving us this option! If you’re not really a photographer but have a DSLR camera and want to get the best pictures from it that you can without a lot of trouble this is exactly what you need. It’s an editing extension for the Photos app and includes the most important (almost necessary) advanced photo processing features from the DxO full-featured app: camera and lens correction, white balance correction, and ISO noise reduction. Easy to use and amazing results! This is not a full featured app for professional use - there is other software for that.

High Quality adjustments made easy, for only 10 bucks. - The DxO plugin has the highest quality Noise Reduction of any Photo’s plugin I’ve paid for and tried. The big upside for me is that DxO kept the interface very simple without removing the power from the users hands...
