How can I migrate my database from DxO OpticsPro (>7) to DxO PhotoLab 3?

Under Windows, DxO PhotoLab 3 doesn't migrate automatically database and presets from previous versions.


CAUTION: This procedure replaces DxO PhotoLab 3 database with DxO OpticsPro database (Version 7 or later only). As a consequence, all projects or customized images changes (if sidecars option is disabled) done in DxO PhotoLab 3 are lost.


DxO OpticsPro database import procedure:

  • Open PhotoLab 3
  • Select File > DxO PhotoLab 3 Database > Restore a DxO OpticsPro/PhotoLab backup
  • Browse the folder C:\Users\xxxxxxx\AppData\Roaming\DxO\DxO PhotoLab 3\Database\ and change extension to DxO OpticsPro database backup

  • DxO OpticsPro ... database is properly restored
