Change Suffix for Export to Lightroom/Application

When I export files to Disk I can change the Suffix of the created file in the Export Options. But when I export to Lightroom or an apllication, the files (Tiff or DNG) get the suffix “_dxo”, which I cannot change.

My request is: Make the default Suffix “-dxo” changeable.

Why? In my DAM I want to have the files (Tiff or DNG) to have the same name as the orginal file(Raw) for actions like searching, moving. And when I export a file as jpg out of the DAM and I do not want a filename “xxx_dxo.jpg”, because the application does not matter.

@Gerd you should also vote for your suggestion - top left corner.

It’s a designed behavior because an image is “exported to application” to be finlised.
If these images are “master” in your DAM, you must to use “export to disk”.

Of course yes, change the suffix could be better but are you sure is a priority task ?

It is not a priority task, but “nice to have” - and a minor effort to implement.

Smugmug now has an application called “Smugmug Source”, which allows you to back up your files and associate the raw files with the jpegs. However, in order for this feature to work, the raw files and jpegs must have the same name (minus the extension of course). So this feature cannot be used when exporting from DXO to Lightroom because DXO adds the _DXO extension, unless I manually change the filename every time I export to Lightroom, which is another step in my workflow. I am not sure how many people that use DXO also use Smugmug Source and Lightroom, but this would be helpful to these people, and could potentially bump up the priority of this request due to this new information.


I was trying to change the suffix and it seems it’s not possible, so I added my vote to this request, even if it’s old.
I just don’t want to have a software name in my photos’ name.

If it was a free software, I would understand the need to promote the software through the picture name, but it’s not.
I don’t use any other software for which I cannot change the output suffix (and dxo allows to configure this for all other exports)

Currently I have the choice between:

  • not using the “export to Lightroom” function, but I’d had to manually import and I’d lose the stacking.
  • manually rename in Lightroom all the dng photos that come from dxo

Both options take some time…

I doubt that the aim of the inclusion was for promotion purposes but more as an aid to avoiding confusion with other apps.

Yes maybe :slight_smile:
Whatever the purpose it should be possible to change the suffix.
Currently I choose the second option, renaming one by one every file that comes from dxo.
