#3. "RE: Question re: DXO OpticsPro7 and LR4 Workflow" In response to In response to 0
I have been using DxO for many years as my only photo editor, though I have NX2 and PS3. If you don't like the rendering with the DxO default preset, you might want to try another DxO preset or create your own. Once you get familiar with the DxO controls you will probably realize that their algorithms for sharpening, noise reduction and geometric adjustments are quite excellent, and you won't need any other software except for cataloging. I usually put both the original NEF file and the processed JPEG in LR4 for key wording, printing, searching etc.
