    Retried the Activation process on Aug 1 – one day after multiple failures – and it sailed right through. Presumably their servers were either down or overwhelmed.

    Bit disappointed, however, to find that my current camera is NOT supported by DxO Optics v7: it IS shown as a Supported system on the DxO website, but apparently only under the newer release (v9).
    Tried downloading Optics Module from within v7, but the list called up in v7 stops One Model Short of the camera we have, nor have we found an obvious Manual Download from their website. ( – ?? – )

    Literature states that we can still Manually Apply some corrections – and, as others have noted, more for RAW images than JPGs – but it would have been nice to see what the Automatic Adjustments are capable of.

    In any event, this appears to be a program for Semi-Serious (to Pro – ?) Photographers, not for the Casual User.

    Found a copy of the Installation Guide after 2nd attempt to contact Support failed; also looked at their FAQ section. The Install guide suggests checking out support & the FAQ – and the FAQ suggested that an AV program might block activation – thus the decision to make an attempt with Norton disabled.

    Thanks for the suggestions – will try again on Friday, on the chance that their servers are merely temporarily overwhelmed.

    [@Deirkdk] Hello, Deirkdk : I do not have a direct answer for your problem but would suggest you try again to contact DxO Labs support. If that still doesn’t work you may find an answer to your problem in the Pro 7 ‘‘Installation Guide” or the “Users Manual”. Try this link:–DxO-Optics-Pro-Documentation. The links for Pro 7 documents are at the bottom of the list. They down load PDF files of the Guide and Manual. You may find a solution to your problem in the Installation Guide.
    Wish I could be of more help.

    Realize that this is now an Expired Offer, however: Downloaded the .exe, and obtained an Activation Code, while the offer was still current.
    Installed the app earlier today (Jul 31), and upon opening it was presented with a choice of a Trial period Or Activation: Alas, EITHER Option results in an Error Message: “The activation process failed, the Error Code is DatabaseCannotBeOpened. Please report to support.”
    This error message persisted after: 1) Uninstall, Reboot, Reinstall; 2) Defeat Norton AV before attempting activation.

    Visited the DxO web page & attempted to submit a report to support, but THAT produced the following:
    “Oh no. Somethine went wrong…”

    Posting this on the odd chance that someone else may have run across this Glitch,
    and Hopefully a Solution!

    [@Ernie F] It is dumbfounding how many people simply do not follow the download/purchase instructions exactly, and end up with problems. Admittedly, the procedures require careful attention, but it seems like a high proportion of SOS followers have ADD…. Detailed correct procedures have been posted by you, me, and Mr. Boss in the Comments, but it seems they don’t read those either. Perhaps there is a Darwinian process at work here, but I’m afraid we’re starting to live in an Idiocracy…..

    [@Tom L.] Not sure why you had the problem getting the Pro 7 version. If you used the ‘DOWNLOAD IT NOW!’ button above and down loaded from the S.O.S. site then you will get the Pro 7 Elite setup file ‘DxO_OpticsPro7_setup.exe’ file. Then using the S.O.S link provided you are taken to giveaway page. Input your email info and the special code to prove you are human being not a software robot. Then click the ‘submit’ button. This takes you to another page that has your License Key code for Pro 7.
    [NOTE: I did have to re-Input the special code twice before it took.] [Also, Do not download any files from this page before clicking 'submit' because there is an offer for trial version of Pro 9 on the page below the 'submit'
    Once I got the actual License Key code I had no problem installing program and activating it with the License Key code provided. The trial version changed to full unlimited version of DxO Pro 7 Elite.
    [Be sure you save copy of the installer exe file and the License code page or do a screen shoot of it for use later if you decide to unstall and re-install again.] Hope this helps anyone having problem getting this giveaway installed.

    Reply to this comment#150

    [@Philx] This is partially true, but this software CAN be used to beneficially adjust some parameters of digital photos taken with ANY camera. Probably a waste of time for most point-and-shooters anyway. I don’t know if it can help correct generic lens distortion which most really cheap cameras have in abundance.
    Where it really shines is in adjusting images from lower-mid level DSLRs, like my Nikon D40 and kit lens. The modules for those specific components really do make each picture look better, right out of the box. Of course there’s no substitute for taking excellent photos to begin with, but this helps fix various issues caused by low-end, and even prosumer, hardware.

  33. Philx

    Reply to this comment#149

    Not for me, thanks, because I’ve already picked up DxO Optics 7 PRo from an earlier SoS link. There’s nothing in the Elite version that’s going to particularly help me because the cameras I’m using are anything but high-end nor the lenses, either. That’s a fact that seems to be too often lost on some folks chasing after this brilliant software: *that it is laboratory developed and engineered to relate to actual, specific lenses and actual, specific camera models,* and that it does so by reading an image’s Exif data and proceeding from there. If it reads your image’s Exif and sees a nice little point ‘n shoot camera at work then no, it won’t do anything that existing freeware like easily does for nowt.

    Way back when DxO started giving away out-of-date versions of its software (and hey, what a gift though: much appreciated by many) someone said it’s magic, the way it can make images from a cheap and cheerful Samsung look like those from a Nikon DSLR. Nonsense. You have to start (in this case) with that Nikon DSLR before you get to see the true magic of which this state-of-the-art software is capable.

    [@David] David, you do not get anything in the mail (or maybe you do but don’t need to). If you go to the page given to you by SoS to get your key, you enter your email address and fill in the Captcha and when you click , it takes you to the next page where your key is given to you immediately online. No emails. Just wait till the page “turns”.

    @Everyone who is not getting a code via email: First try using a different email address and make sure to check junk/spam. If that still doesn’t work, contact DxO directly and give them the page you entered your email in. I assure you, this giveaway is working fine but, for some reason, some people just don’t get emails from DxO. DxO support, in my experience, is awesome and will get you your key ASAP.

    >Here is the download link for your software:

    Try reading the email with a different browser. If you use a custom skin or use custom colours, that may prevent the activation code from showing up. Try changing the text colour to a different colour or go back to default. Alternatively, you can go to your email and highlight the very same lines of text I just posted. Then copy and paste the result as plain text in something else like a new text file. The activation code should appear. It’s just plain text with different attributes.

    Hey folks, SOS is a “clearinghouse” for free and discounted software, NOT its distributor. You can post here all you want, and contact Ashraf directly, but issues with software installation, activation, registration, and usage should probably go to the manufacturer. I don’t think SOS usually has any codes to send you (though it doesn’t hurt to ask). Oddly enough, there are still some folks who have trouble getting activation codes, while other rarely/never have any problems. If directions were followed *exactly* one can only assume specific computer problems: anti-virus anti-spam anti-malware programs, firewall, e-mail programs quirks, etc etc.

    I have been trying to get Registration code for Windows version. So far no email response from your end. I followed following information: Please do the needful.
    Before we tell you how to get this freebie, please take note the terms and conditions of this specific giveaway allow you to install or re-install whenever you want. However, you need to download the installer and get your license/registration key before the offer has ended.
    That said, the download link for DxO Optics Pro 7 Elite is given to you above. To get your registration key, click here to visit the giveaway page, fill out the form, and follow on-screen instructions — you will be emailed your registration information. (Be sure to check junk/spam; if you use a desktop email client, check junk/spam directly via the web because sometimes email clients don’t import junk/spam. If all else fails, try using a different email address if you don’t get an email after an hour or two.)
    Once you get your key, download and install DxO Optics Pro 7 Elite and then register it using the registration information you were given. You may need to run as admin if you are on Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8.
    Be sure to leave a nice comment if you like this offer or ask for help if you have any trouble.

    There is a link in the SOS download/confirmation page. You must open that in a new tab, enter your email address, and then receive an email from “ team” with an activation code. Download the program from the SOS download/confirmation page, NOT the activation code email. After installation, click “I want to activate” and enter the 16-digit code you were sent.

    Got this one to replace v6 (obtained free back in December). Completely uninstalled v6 *FIRST*, then re-booted. Then signed in to SOS, followed instructions exactly, received activation code within 60 seconds, and installed and activated with no problem. The new version (7) even has my previously downloaded camera bodies and lenses available. Sweet!

    One quirk that might be fouling up some folks: When you “purchase” this freebie from SOS, open the link on the SOS confirmation page to obtain an activation code in a separate tab/window (enter your e-mail address there), then close that tab/window. Download the program from the original confirmation page that the SOS purchase takes you to, *NOT* the link on the confirmation e-mail DxO sends you about your “purchase” OR from your activation code email. (This ensures that you get the correct version of the program.) Download the software from the SOS confirmation page, then install the program, run it, and choose “I want to activate” and enter the code you received via email 4 digits at a time. I have never had a single problem with an SOS offer using this procedure.

    Just a note on the activation code: I unticked the box but entered all letters in small (even though in the captcha they were shown in capitals), so it appears that Margaretha solved the problem. Well done Margaretha! (^_^)

    Re: those that don’t receive the e-mail with the code, you may need to check you e-mail provider’s online/webmail spam filter as well as your own e-mail program’s spam filter – sometimes online spam filters detect that a company has sent out the same e-mail to countless recipients, and it therefore becomes flagged even though it’s a legitimate e-mail. Good luck!

    Very nice program and appreciate Ashraf’s efforts to provide quality software for free or reduced cost. Unfortunately, DxO only supports Bayer type sensors and not Fujifilm X sensors. Even their most current version of Optics Pro (v 9.5) does not support the Fuji X sensor. Their explanation for not supporting these cameras can be found here:

    Great software if your camera is supported. Unfortunately, mine are not.

    DxO Optics sends an activation key to the downloader directly. I have a couple of their giveaway programs installed, and I found both activation code emails in one of my email folders. If you did not delete the email you received from them, the activation code should still work on a re-installation.

    AFAIK the problem is sharewareonsale has a record of me ordering the freebie but it does not keep a record of the license key as other promos sometimes offer. Sharewareonsale, if you have an account like I do, should also archive a record of the license key without having to depend upon the third party software provider.

    A record of just the download file is useless without a key.

    Reply to this comment#45OLD COMMENT

    [@Philx] Your apologies are warranted and tentatively accepted. You noticed and repeated my use of the word “everything” [sic] which was put inside quotation marks specifically to alert reasonable people to the *limitations* of the otherwise *unlimited* everything. In simpler terms, I was being lighthearted while providing REAL, EMPIRICAL FACTS based on my owning any number of medium- to high-end cameras in formats from 35mm to 8×10 AND my actually having used DxO since BEFORE offering my opinion. Any image that is or can be digitized CAN be processed with DxO Optics Pro 6; 8; 9 Elite no matter the type, age or format of the camera that produced it. The software processes the IMAGE and NOT the CAMERA, for goodness sakes!

    I dare say that I have every image-processing software that you have and, likely, many that you do not. Still, I find DxO’s offerings useful in much the same way that I find useful, for example, Seim Effects or other “presets” . Skilled as I am behind the camera and in a physical or digital darkroom (Remember, I mentioned Minolta Maxxum, a film camera?), it would take me hours-upon-hours to reproduce some of those effects…. and even then, not as masterfully as good old Gavin Seim.

    mrnews54 got it right. Read his (her?) post, try the software for yourself on some of your images and ONLY then offer what I hope will be a more helpful, fact-based critique of my expert opinions.

    As before said, I have successfully used DxO Optics Pro to process images from that same, old (1998) Minolta, which is NOT on their list of supported equipment. In making any further posts, you may wish better to inform yourself by actually taking a look at the matrix to which I provided a link.


  138. mrnews54

    Reply to this comment#44OLD COMMENT


    Some good points, but I think the OP meant that Optics Pro 6 can be be used as a generic touch-up tool, without having specific camera/lens modules installed. I’m not even sure this true, if the software can be utilized “manually” on photos, or if this would even be worth doing.

    It’s certainly no surprise that a program three versions old only supports older hardware. Perhaps many SOS downloaders missed that detail. But for those of us with seven-year-old equipment, this freebie is just another potential tool in the arsenal. That said, I probably won’t use it much, as Photoshop (CS4) gives me amazing and precise control. It’s good to try out these programs (for free) just to see if any are actually worth paying for. Free trial offers (of current versions) could accomplish the same thing, but tend to be tedious (and sometimes feature-limited).

    Reply to this comment#40OLD COMMENT

    [@trust] Sorry but your comment at #32 is likely to mislead a lot of people. The software version offered here emphatically does NOT cover “everything”: how could it? The developer isn’t psychic, and couldn’t possibly have written specific algorithms for camera systems not even in existence at the time of the DxO Optics Pro / Elite 6 release. As I wrote in the opening post to this thread, this software is superb as an automated post-processor of the digital output of specific optical equipment. But as I also made clear in that same post: that kind of automation is *NOT* available to non-supported equipment. Me, I have Adobe CS, DxO and the stunningly brilliant Sagelight, (currently on a bargain-of-the-year time-limited offer of $40) in my image management armory. Adobe CS considerably out-performs DxO’s Optics Pro. . . but then it should: pricing and complexity separate the two by a wide margin. DxO is my go-to for really fast automated processing tasks (a tenth of the time it would take Adobe CS to do the same thing) of output from my supported camera gear. Sagelight is actually my image management program of choice, a bit like Optics Pro and Adobe CS rolled into one but capable of out-performing both at a fraction of the price and in a fraction of the learning time involved. If you’re *not* familiar with high-end image editing, and your camera gear *isn’t* supported by this version of Optics Pro then candidly, you’re not missing much by not downloading it.

    Downloaded, installed, and activated with no problems whatsoever, on Win 8.1. Then installed modules for the 3 lenses for my old Nikon D40. Interesting program for basic image correction, would not be too easy for beginners though. Probably wonit use it much except for snapshots for simple emailing & Facebooking; much more extensive and precise control in Photoshop. But nice to have, for free (currently $99 for v.9). Noticed that Nikon D7000 and 7100 cameras are not supported in v.6, so I would probably uninstall (or upgrade) this, if/when I upgrade my DSLR.

    Professional, advanced amateur or novice photographer: Grab this FREEBIE, even if your cameras ARE NOT on the list of supported equipment. I have re-processed images taken with cameras as old as my old Minolta Maxxum 9′s (circa 1998) and gotten superb results, especially in low-light situations. Anyone who has spent $2,000 – 6,000 on their camera most likely already has DXO’s version 8 or version 9… at $300. If not, and for all those casual shooters, this SoS FREEBIE is a real belated-Christmas gift. So, put aside all the whining about DEP, server unavailability, the dog-ate-my-homework crap and grab this while you can. You’ll be glad that you sorted out whatever problems just as soon as you’ve successfully processed one of those old so-so photos.

    Thanks Ashraf for a real gem. Now, since I only have Version 8.1.2 and can’t seem to find my wallet to pay for an upgrade to Version 9, perhaps SoS could…. well, you know. ;-)

    DxO Optics Pro is serious photo editing software. The target audience is advanced amateurs and professional photographers. This is an older but very capable version and is perfect for students and advanced hobbyists. This offer is not really targeted at the casual user. If one wants simple and really easy check out PhotoIMP (not free but sometimes on promo), or the more capable but less easy IrfanView, or the more sophisticated Zoner Home (free).
    This offer is targeted at photography buffs. If you are into photo editing this FREE offer is a great deal. Deals like this on professional photography software do not come by often – take advantage. Thanks SharewareOnSale and DxO!

    DxO has a formidable reputation as the professional photographer’s go-to when Adobe CS is a bit too much trouble to cope with. The Elite version offered here is an astonishing freebie for those with digital cameras of $1,000 and up, otherwise the Pro version, offered elsewhere last month by a digital photography magazine, is sufficient. It should however be noted that whether Pro or Elite, this software is very much Savile Row tailoring, with a bespoke “fit” to different cameras from different manufacturers. *Do not make the mistake of thinking Optics Pro will do everything you expect* because the program’s principal strengths — its brilliant auto adjustments — most definitely will NOT work for you if your camera isn’t on the “supported” list. (For further information, check the developer’s website.) There’s plenty else to work with manually, of course — but unless you’re familiar with Photoshop-level post processing, you may well decide a less complex program (Photoshop Elements, for example) is all you need. However: if your camera is on the DxO supported list, then this Elite freebie — even though of an earlier version — is very probably this Christmas’s very best software . Well done, SoS.
