My experience with DxO is the Photoshop plugin is not the way to go. It strips the Exif.
After talking with the DxO tech support people I have found the best way to use DxO is to export the picture as a DNG file and open it in ACR, then Photoshop.
This gives you the use of the tools in all three programs. I keep bridge open to sort pictures and open the DNG file from there. If you select the ARW and DNG file and open them together you can compare them in ACR.

Thank you for writing. While Snow Leopard is not yet officially supported, the test team confirmed that they have tested DxO Optics Pro v5.x under Snow Leopard RC.
They have noted that DxO Optics Pro v5.x is not fully functional on this platform. You may experience unexpected behaviors under the "Select" tab.
We recommend that you not use the "Select" tab functions, but rather browse to find the images that you wish to process using the OS X's Finder. With your mouse, drag and drop the file or files you want to process in Optics Pro into the lower Filmstrip/Project pane in Optics Pro.
We are also aware of start-up problems occurring with v5.x, as well others requiring updating to the Pace Interlok anti-Piracy application for Mac 10.6. Further investigation will be performed as soon as we receive the final release of Snow Leopard to test with.
If you have already installed Snow Leopard and are having trouble starting Optics Pro, please follow this procedure.
When you try to start Optics Pro after installing Snow Leopard, you may get the following message, "Required software extensions are missing".
1) As part of the message above, there is a question of whether you want to go to the PACE site to download the needed extensions. Please accept and Safari will automatically start.
2) Once at the PACE site, please click on the link to 'InterLok MAC OS X extensions installer v5.7.2'.
3) This will download the following file to your system, macextsx.dmg. Now, double-click on this file.
4) When macextsx opens, double-click on 'Interlok Extensions.pkg'. This is the program that will install the extensions on your computer. You will need to type in your administrative password. It appears that the Snow Leopard installation probably removes or changes the needed security extensions.
5) When the extensions installation program has completed running, you can click on Optics Pro and it should start normally. You do not have to reboot.
Of course, as with any update or upgrade, we strongly recommend to our customers that they have a current and complete system backup available.
