About DxO Optics Pro Elite

Like some other photo processing programs, DxO Optics Pro improves your photos. But we improve them more, and better, than any other program. And we improve them automatically. We’ll explain why.

First you should know briefly who we are. Our name is DxO Labs, we are based in Paris (France) and our chief scientists regularly publish scientific papers in the most prestigious journals of the computer image community. This scientific and mathematical background has allowed us to design DxO Optics Pro as a tool that aims not just to improve quality, but to achieve perfection — and more specifically, automatic perfection.

This one is just dressed up by Sharewareonsale to make it look like the offer it belongs to them, which it most certainly doesn't.

That so-called re-post is almost 2 month's old? (that's hardly what I'd deem a 're-post'?).

But fair enough about the point of your comment though .....

At least the other deal is a clean link direct to the source of the offer and not to some third party site that harvests your emails and wants to install crapware on your computer to get the same result.

Exactly the same with your Google Nik post.

Fair enough?.

But in hindsight then, similar could also be said of any and all previous current and future SharewareOnSale Deals on here then really? (I personally have cone across a few last year upon HUKD + at least a handful so far for this year alone ... and many have made good use of the various 'stuffs' regardless?).

So kinda depends on your angle ..... :-)

My stance on Sharewareonsale is this (yours may differ):

If it's their own giveaway which they have sourced themselves (like THIS one), they are free to present and package it how they choose. I still don't like the email harvesting and crapware they try and get you to install, but I fully accept it's their giveaway to do with as they choose.

If the giveaway doesn't belong to SoS and has been lifted from somewhere else then packaged to look like it belongs to them, they have no right to harvest emails and ask you to install their crapware. They should be open and link to who actually has done the work to bring the giveaway to everyone without you having to register or give over emails to SoS.

The two giveaways I mentioned you posted belong in the second category. I'm not moaning at you but feel quite strongly about the shady tactics of SoS and their flagrant disregard for respecting the work of others.

I think shareware on sale is fairly reasonable as a service, they do overall in a year good.
