DxO Optics Pro Elite edition v6 (Win/Mac) for FREE
Posted By: rawr, 04-29-2013, 03:15 PM

Download a full version of the well-regarded DxO Optics Pro RAW processor/image editor (v6) for free, courtesy of DxO and the German 'Fotohits' magazine.

Steps:
Follow the Promo Link
Enter you email address
Press "BESTÄTIGEN"

You will then be taken to the download page for the Windows and Mac version of DxO v6.

(NB: The promo and download pages are in German).

The latest version of DxO is v.8, but this older v6 fully supports the following Pentax camera bodies:

Pentax K10D
Pentax K20D
Pentax K200D
Pentax K-5
Pentax K-7
Pentax K-m
Pentax K-r
Pentax K-x

as well as lots of Canon, Nikon, Sony etc bodies too, which are listed in this PDF (28k). As this is the Elite edition, some full-frame bodies are also supported.

Bodies later than the above Pentax models (K-30, K-5IIs etc) will still work, as DxO v6 will still open DNG's (and perhaps PEFs) from later Pentax bodies.

This v6 also appears to allow you to download and use all of the appropriate DxO lens modules created to date, which means the 30 or so DxO modules for Pentax lenses should also work with it.

A great opportunity to try out DxO if you haven't used it before. An upgrade deal to DxO Optics Pro v8 is also available on the download page.

Offer expires 22 May 2013.

I double-click in the project pane and the image still not open in the Customize tabs. I still can process the image but just not able to make any adjustments.
OK, try this:

- Click on the top 'Select' tab. Select a few images (JPs, DNG's, whatever) from somewhere on your PC. Then using your mouse drag them into the 'Project' pane at the bottom of your screen to add them to your project.

-Now click on the 'Customize' tab, and single-click on one of the image in the 'Project' pane. It should open under the 'Customize' tab, with the DxO defaults applied to it.

To see the full panopoly of editing options under the 'Customize' tab, at the top right of the customize screen select the 'DxO - Advanced User' workspace view.

For more detailed DxO usage instructions, I recommend downloading the DxO v6.5 User Guide PDF.

I think that is a system error caused by bad MS update (for which you'll have to find fix from MS), or a conflict with an antivirus program or firewall (more likely). Google "data execution errors" along with name of your antivirus or firewall (or other security type programs) and see if there is a fix/workaround, or see about adding an exception so it won't scan it...
Looks like it runs when launched "As Administrator"

Doesn't Recognize K-01 DNG Files

The program doesn't recognize K-01 DNG files as was mentioned, but it will process JPGs from the camera. I tried converting K-01 DNGs to Adobe DNG using Adobe DNG Converter 7.4, but the DXO software doesn't recognize the new files either. It will work with PEF or DNG files from the K-x or K20D.

Click the "change preferences" button for DNG Converter 7.4. There should be a drop down for compatibility. If DXO recognizes DNG files, one of the older camera raw selections should result in a DNG file you can use.

You want the lastest camera raw version that DXO will recognize. You will have to experiement to see which one is the latest that will work with DXO.

That is, unless some other forum member knows when the various Camera Raw versions came out, and can cross reference this with the date DXO v6 was created. Hope this helps.

Or possibly converting your DNG files to an older version of compatibility with the free Adobe converter will get them to work. I have to do this for some programs I use...

I tried each of the other versions available under the "change preferences" drop down, but none produced a DNG file that DxO would recognize. Any other suggestions?

Looks to me like DxO v6 simply doesn't have K-30 DNG support baked into it. A Google reveals that K-30 support came in DxO Optics Pro 7.5.4, along with Sony RX-100 support.

These kind of results always make me question the universality and longevity of DNG as an archival image format...
