  • Replied in DXO Optics Pro
    For moderate noise Topaz denoise etc. are good enough. But in some cases PRIME is much better indeed. Lens softness correction works really great for zooms such as 24-140mm f4. The reason why DxO ...
  • https://creative.adobe.com/plans/offer/photoshop+lightroom This is good news - I have saved  $120 by not joining CC a year ago as I do not need any new features in PS (I have CS6) and I already own ...
  • I really wanted to love it and tried it twice (getting a full-month evaluation license). But in those cases when I am not satisfied by LR, I still prefer DxO. I think that PN is nice, but many PN ...
  • I noticed the same thing - Tamron 18-270 PZD sometimes (not always!) produced blurred images on D7000 (but was always fine on D80). This was clearly triggered by VR, on tripod everything was fine. ...
  • It does not create any problems: (1) Previews are stored not in the catalog itself but rather a separate subdirectory. You do not need to make back-ups of this subdirectory - it can be always rebuilt
  • This is normal and nothing can be done. I have a similar PC configuration and it takes 10-15s to zoom a D800 image the first time (36Mpix). Even upgrading to the most expensive CPU will not help ...
  • Replied in Dxo presets

  • The "perfect eraser" tool at this moment is included in "Perfect Enhance" and "Perfect Layers" modules, but not in "Perfect Effects" (yet? I read somewhere that it will be eventually added there too).
  • This is normal for 'Auto' exposure - DxO tries to guess what combination of Exposure and Smart Lighting produces the proper result. It works in many cases, but not always. I used DxO for many ...
  • Replied in HDR and CA
    I concur - I always pre-process RAWs with DxO before doing any merge, whether it is HDR or Panorama stitching. Alex
  • Hi Russell, yes, I still love P7100 and decided not to upgrade to P7800 (as it is noticeably bulkier). Here is a picture made with P7100 about a month ago (Park Boucherville in Quebec). I had both ...
  • RAW files contain both 'normal' information and 'proprietary' information. I suspect strongly that Adobe DNG converter does not always preserve 'proprietary' information and it is critical for DxO ...
  • Hi Bill, it replaces 9.0 (and you don't need to uninstall 9.0 manually). Alex
  • You can find a link at 'My Account', the current version is 9.1.1 Or if you have DxO 9.0 installed, start it and go to Help->Check for Updates, this will open a link in browser as needed. Please ...
  • For me, it is a matter of self-esteem. There are no new important features in CC, and I doubt that Adobe has any ideas - if they had, they could have continued with 'permanent' license and people ...
  • Just noticed that PPS 8.1 has been released ('Check for updates' does not see it yet, but you can download it from OnOne site). From release notes:
  • Same here, and with LR5 as well (the lower right corner has a green tint) Alex
  • An interesting article: http://news.investors.com/121113-682544-adobe-systems-set-to-report-q4-earnings.htm
  • Hello Joe, I used to have severe performance problems while saving results for some filter combinations on big images. When Google did the initial release of the full Nik collection, it was the ...
  • I rarely use color film emulations directly as they are, but I have created a number of my own presets based on some of them (e.g. Velvia), and I use these presets use regularly. And FilmPack ...
