04 PRIME noise reduction
So what happens if you press the PRIME (1) button instead? At first glance, nothing at all. That’s because the PRIME process is so complex that DxO Optics Pro can’t display the result in the viewer window – the eye symbol with the line through it (2) at the top of the panel warns you of that. However, it can process the smaller area in the 150 x 150 pixel preview window in the Noise reduction panel, so this is your only guide to the finished effect.
05 PRIME processing
If you have set up an image for PRIME processing, it’s highlighted in the browser panel at the bottom of the screen with the blue ‘P’ sash across the top left corner. It’s good to know because this will dramatically increase the processing time across a batch of images.
06 Export to Disk
You click the Export to disk button over at the bottom right to process your images. This opens the Export to disk dialog, where you choose the file format and the location to save to. You can process a whole folder of images, or just select one at a time.
