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

This information applies to version(s): 4, 5


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


CAUTION: This procedure replaces DxO PhotoLab 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 are lost.


DxO OpticsPro database import procedure:

  • Open PhotoLab
  • Select File > DxO PhotoLab 4 or 5 Database > Restore a DxO OpticsPro/PhotoLab backup
  • Browse the folder C:\Users\xxxxxxx\AppData\Roaming\DxO\DxO PhotoLab 4 or 5\Database\
    and change extension to DxO OpticsPro database backup
  • DxO OpticsPro ... database is properly restored
