  • Contact Adobe support, or at least check the photoshop forum at Adobe.com to see if anyone else had the same problem. -- - Bill
  • Yes, I was going to mention this.  To the OP: make sure you are allowed to take pictures with the camera you want to bring. Also, you might consider the renting option, rather than buying.  You ...
  • Dropbox links: https://www.dropbox.com/s/oai6gtf2q5qnoit/gc_dehaze-1.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/4uykkqgcf6bhghs/gc_dehaze-2.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/u5r2el54f5v4g7v/gc_dehaze-3.jp ...
  • Here are some variations. Default in LR, no dehaze LR dehaze = 50%, nothing else LR dehaze = 50%, plus some minor tweaking in basic panel DxO Clearview, default settings, all other DxO settings default
  • Ack!  You are right.  I was just going through a bunch of Photoshop tutorials where that was recommended by someone.  Yeah, Lightroom is just ProPhoto.
  • Well, this was a free update, so no need to be cynical about it. -- - Bill
  • Glad you liked it. If it didn't actually look like that, it should have. 😃 -- - Bill
  • You might try cleaning the contacts. It might fix it, or the problem could be more expensive. -- - Bill
  • Yeah, that can be a problem with converting to JPEG. You are not only downsizing and compressing the image, but changing color spaces from Prophoto to sRGB, and changing from 16 bits per channel ...
  • Yeah, forgot that you can just download the camera module. Didn't try it before I upgraded, but you are probably right. If you are not using photoshop cc 2015, then maybe you don't need the ...
  • The main benefit is support for the new 5DS/R cameras. I've been wondering what the raw files look like when given the DxO treatment. The answer is - pretty good! -- - Bill
  • Is that a stick shift on the transmission? Wild. -- - Bill
  • Surprisingly, it worked fine for me when I tried updating (all three).  Windows 7, 64 bit.
  • I posted this in another thread, but adding it back here where it belongs.  Ran it through Topaz Simplify:
  • Opened it up again, and played a lot with it, and couldn't get it to crash. (Nand's picture, simplified)
  • No, they don't all look like that.  The HDR tool in the new version of Lightroom is definitely geared for realistic looking results.  In fact, that was one of the complaints some people had, that ...
  • I got it as part of the "Big Deal" bundle (which is now expired). I'm a little underwhelmed with it. The modifications are "subtle". I guess that keeps the average Joe from getting way off track, ...
  • Replied in Simon Joinson?
    Yeah, Simon Joinson would be the one to ask. I doubt if he or any of the DPR staff read the challenge discussion forum; at least, I've not seen any evidence of it. They do seem to read the site ...
  • Yes -- - Bill
  • Why not send him a pm? I doubt if he reads this forum often. -- - Bill
