DxO PhotoLab 7 for Infrared Photography

I'm in the middle of a blizzard, so I'll take advantage of this time by continuing to look at various raw editors for infrared photography. In this video, I explore DxO PhotoLab 7 and the key features for IR editing, including white balance capabilities, color swap options, and contrast adjustments. I compare the Essential and Elite editions of DxO PhotoLab and discuss the additional plugins and collections offered by DxO. If you are interested in infrared photography, here are my insights to help you decide if DxO PhotoLab is the right tool for your needs.
