Request: Support for Mutiple screens

I’m new to DxO, coming from having used U-point technology In Nikon Capture NX2 and the Google Nik collection in Lightroom. I’m still in my trial period and browsing through all the capabilities of Photolab. But from the few hours of experience, it is very likely I will purchase when my trial period ends. It is almost the same as in NX2, i.e. natively using U-point, not needing to save and open separately, excellent!. :clap:

Though I’m already very positive, there was one thing I was looking for. As per the subject, it would be great for DxO Photolab to support multiple screens (in windows, don’t know about Mac), similar to Lightroom, Nikon Capture DX and Camerabits photomechanic can do. Having a main working screen and a full-screen preview on the defined 2nd screen…

I’ve tried to play with the workspaces, by moving the pallets and file browser to my 2nd screen, leaving the picture on the other screen. This works but it’s not exactly what Lightroom does, which will show a full-screen preview based on your ‘working screen’.


Hello Peter,

Thank you for the positive feedback and the suggestion. Yep, for now you can move presets and a filmstrip to the second screen.
We’ll analyze it and decide what can be done. But it won’t be soon as there are higher priority tasks right now.

Thank you
Svetlana G.

I agree with Peter: having the possibility to display the fullscreen preview on the second screen would be very valuable.

I would strongly suggest that if you decide to purchase PhotoLab you get the Elite version. I believe that very important features like DXO Clearview and Prime noise reduction are only available in the Elite version. Additionally, I would also suggest getting the Viewpoint application which operates as both a standalone application and as a fully integrated plug-in in PhotoLab. It fixes perspective issues.

I did Purchase bot elite version of PhotoLab and FilmPack for those reasons.
My workflow is much faster than it used to be in LR. I never got to use LR CC as I don’t like the subscription idea (and it’s more expensive in € than it is in $). DxO Photolab takes me back to the experience I had with Nikon NX2 in the past. I’m still very pleased with PhotoLab.

Glad to here it. Did you get ViewPoint as well. Its very worthwhile. I was a long term Lightroom user up to LR 6.14. I’ replaced it with PhotoLab last December and have not regretted it.

I’ve just grabbed the elite version thus far. The geometry control in ViewPoint is compelling as are some of the Nix plug ins. My reasoning behind purchasing PL is the same as yours. LR 6.14 Perpetual License doesn’t support some of my gear “natively” (for lack of better words). I didn’t want to bother with import with this, open in that. PL supports 95% of my equipment and offers a licensing model I believe in. Its called owning what I purchased. This has all been said before. The die hard LR fans always want to take pokes at me. I could care less. PL is working for me just fine and I’m pleased with the value.
