THE PERFECT HOST
FOR YOUR NIK EFFECTS
Although Nik Collection 2 plugins play nicely with software like Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, DxO’s PhotoLab Essential is the ideal package for launching Nik plugins within its superb and intuitive workflow.
And it’s now FREE with Nik Collection 2.
SELECTIVE EDITS DIRECTLY ON RAW FILES
DxO’s engineers worked to adapt and improve Nik’s original U Point Technology for applying selective edits to individual areas of an image. And now U Point Technology is integrated right into DxO PhotoLab 2 with a brand-new equalizer interface. Its intuitive controls make local adjustments so easy, and it’s perfect for tweaking and enhancing DxO PhotoLab’s auto corrections.
If you’re already familiar with Nik U Point Technology, you’ll love how we’ve improved it and integrated U Point directly with DxO PhotoLab’s RAW file editor.
