    I am trying out amateur photography through mobile. But processing pictures need good softwares and PC. DxO is one of the best. I would like to use it for managing my post precessing needs.

    DxO is a very highly respected company and their products are world class. DxO PhotoLab Essential Edition offers so many ways to improve and transform images from the camera to bring out the best from each image, whether Raw or jpg. I do a lot of image editing as I am never happy with what has been shot and it's usually a pain-staking process, and Photolabs Essential Edition offers the ability to enhance, correct and batch process images to transform them in a very easy to use GUI saving so much time and giving better results. I would love to own a copy of this amazing piece of software as it would make my life working with my images so much easier - thank you for the opportunity.

    Photoshop is a lot tedious but however, DxO almost does the same with little to minimum efforts, it also has deep customisation options if people need for it. Would definitely like to use it to enhance my photos.

    Thank you for the giveaway.

    DxO Photo Lab is a powerful tool to modify and post produce an image. I would like to win this because it packs almost all feature of Lightroom and moreover it is not subscription based it is an one time paid software which I like the most. It has better workflow also has better photo library than lightroom. Also I liked the colour correction and noise reduction feature they are more rich in feature than its rival also it can handle and manage RAW files better than its rival. Overall its a feature rich software and will come in handy for the armature level photographers who are learning post production of image.

    I would like to win DxO Photolab because it is quick, not too complicated to handle, supports many cameras (and all the cameras I owe) and - first of all - the results are really, really good. Best of all is the noise reduction. According to my tests it is better than any of the competitors.

    Thank you very much for the competition for the super program DXO PhotoLabs. I am an amateur photographer, photography is my passion and I take a lot of photos. I have my internet gallery and I'm happy to upload more photos. Because the camera I have is quite weak and old (Olympus E-520), I have to put a lot of work into retouching photos. I use a few programs for this - Corel PSP X, Google NIK, Zoner 15 and DXO Optics 9 - which I really appreciate for a great noise removal algorithm and correction of photos taken at night. Where other programs gave me little patches, DxO gave good results. In addition, this program has the preview of .ORF files and the ability to save them - which suits me very much. That's why I would love to win a license for DxO PhotoLab.

    I most certainly don't deserve it, but will appreciate it. I recently lost a chunk of my life, was hijacked and physically assaulted with severe head & brain trauma. Suffered severe memomry loss for most of my life. I recently lost most of my software and backups through a computer virus, and to recover software and licenses requires your memory to claim e.g where I kept the purchase records, licenses, install keys & codes. Luckily microsoft is helping me by giving me free access to Office 365 and Corel has given me a huge discount on their CorelDRAW suite. After all the medical bills and loss of income I simply cannot afford it. I have to work daily in a retail store for income, because I used to do graphic designing, code writing, and lots of other stuff for a living but cant remember any of it. People I know tells me I was quite talented with digital photography and software coding. All I can recall today is MS-DOS from my childhood.
