  • This was quite confounding to me at first, the performance is so bad in this regard. I adopted a workflow to work on a single file at a time in its own folder, and in fact on a different volume ...
  • I think that's probably a tricky and time-consuming test. Of course they say it is better. It might just come down to time-spent, how much tweaking is needed (just guessing). For example, skin ...
  • It is much much more responsive and generally faster on my core i7 MacBook Pro with 16 GB RAM and SSD. Version 9 on this machine was the balkiest thing I ever used. I only persevered because I knew ...
  • My biggest regret in trying out v10 is that I didn't do it as soon as I heard about it. It's expensive, but if you use this thing, it's a good upgrade. I apologize for mis-characterizing the ...
  • I'll post some samples in a little while, as I'll actively be working with conversions this morning. I downloaded and tried the app. The general speed and responsiveness of the UI is worth the ...
  • OK, here goes. I'm kinda too busy to go to any length, but just now I happened to be working on this old image from a D70. Wish I could go back with a more modern camera. Here is a before shot, the ...
  • Maybe DxO is worse for Canon files. I've tried it with Nikon (a few bodies) and Olympus.
  • I tested another one from the archives. This was a cliff in Iceland, with sun hitting the edge of the cliff and blowing it out. In this case it was too far gone for either LR or DxO, but there was ...
  • OK, I tested this one image against Lightroom. In this case there doesn't seem to be any advantage one over the other. DxO is certainly not worse at highlight recovery (in this case an old image ...
  • While I don't know if I'll go for this upgrade, my take on DxO differs quite a bit from the naysayers. It's not part of my casual everyday workflow -- I'll settle for Lightroom and Photoshop and ...
  • Well, I don't need bridge; I can sort by modified date in the Finder on the mac. I know that extremely well. My post is perhaps not clear: Lightroom is causing the file modified date to change, ...
  • I would add another opinion to the "buy a small one" consensus. (But I've mostly worked with large ones, so maybe I don't know what I'm missing). But my experience is that if you have a large ...
  • In the catalog settings I've got "Include Develop settings in metadata inside jpegs, tifs, psds" unchecked. I do have "automatically write changes into XMP" checked, since it's a mixed catalog, ...
  • After much railing against the subscription model, I finally caved and signed up for the Photoshop CC deal last December. It's hard to say now whether the new release is faster or performs better ...
  • Oh, and my Nik and Topaz plugins are not in the new 2014 folder. I guess I should not have tried to save disk space, yet, by trashing the old Photoshop CC folder. Oops. Off to the Time Machine disk...
  • I'm using DxO more and more for fine tuning, and some older images are really benefitting from the Prime noise reduction. But I wonder about the setting for "Dead Pixels." It is always set at a ...
  • The only thing I've noticed so far is that my previous scratch disk setting and the layout were not carried over. (the evolution of the layout, customizing how I want the window to look and ...
  • Created discussions Dropped E-M10 in Ireland
    My wife is traveling in Ireland, without me. We got her set up with an E-M10 for the trip, and she was enjoying it. But she dropped it. It did not handle the fall. They were going to visit near ...
  • This Lightroom round-trip, and the current sale has pushed me over the edge to try it. Really thinking about buying DXO. Partly I'm thinking that my relationship with Adobe is pretty iffy, and in ...
  • Yes, no big deal, but two different cameras (both writing raw .ORF files). I think they were two different cards out of this batch too. At this point I wouldn't mind getting the 20 bad files from ...
