  • Take a look at the free Androis app "Snapseed" from Google.  Nik roots are clearly present here (U-Point, presets, frames, etc).
  • You wrote: However, once booted this way I have to force stop NMI to be able to connect the N7 to a computer. Not sure what computer has to do with this.  Photos come from card connected to reader...
  • I've used ProCapture (trial) and Snapseed (free).  Few gimmicks; suited to the more serious photographer I like ProFocus histogram, focus control, ease of adjustment I like Snapseed Nik-like...
  • Works fine with original N7 but does not work with newest N7.  Perhaps an incompatibility with JB 4.3 See "Media Importer" website for progress on bugfix and possible work-around.
  • Thanks to all for the information. I was trying to learn the difference between "uncompressed", "lossless compression", and "lossy compression" As described. "lossless compression" is a bit of a...
  • When a photo editor states that its operation results in "lossless compression"  I would expect that the MP size of its output will be approximately equal to the MP size of its input. How does this...
  • Most plug-ins to image editors have toning previews that can help. Here's an even easier way.  Topaz has a product (stand-alone as well as plug-in) called "photoFx" that allows you to pick a toning...
  • Replied in Not impressed
    Screen colors in average lighting see dull.  Any way to correct within N7 ?
  • The cache for Br-CS6 is currently in its default location on my C drive, which is a fast SSD. Given the relatively small size of C I'm concerned that the more I use Bridge its cache size will grow...

  • What's your opinion on the best way to open a group of (Topaz) filters hosted by PS-CS6 ? I'd like to return to each filter for re-adjustments, so they should probably be opened as "smart filters"....
  • Replied in Topaz Suite
    I completely agree with your observations. In addition to the mods you mentioned I also had a chance to play with DeJPEG and InFocus.  I reworked a detailed macro pix that I had originally...
  • Replied in Topaz Suite
    In my very limited use I think the Topaz suite is terrific.  I've been using the Nik plugins and thought they were very good (esp the control point technology), but Topaz stuff might even be better.
  • Created discussions Topaz Suite
    I was originally drawn to Topaz because of the excellent reviews of their DeNoise product.  I see there are a dozen other Topaz products in the suite.  I'm interested in hearing about your...
  • My camera is Panasonic FZ150 "super-zoom" which appears to be supported by DxO.  RAW files are .RW2 format.  As you point out all cameras work differently with DxO, so I'll need to give it a try...
  • Thanks to both of you for your valuable comments.  I think I'll be adding DxO to my workflow (in place of ACR).  I generally do my final editing in PS + NIK.  Is there an easy way to move from DxO...
  • Created discussions Your Opinion of DxO Pro 8 ?
    I recently received a copy of DxO Pro 8 to use with my camera. I've been using ACR and/or LR4 for my RAW conversions (and my preliminary JPG edits), and have been generally satisfied. Does DxO...
