  • I was with you until that final paragraph, which is very simplistic, to say the least. DxO OP obviously doesn't offer enough that would benefit your personal workflow to offset the lack of speed. ...
  • Perfect Effects 9 has several presets that might help without requiring masking manually, and they can be stacked for greater effect. Darken Sky Sky Enhancer Polarizer Graduated Blue
  • Even when sharpening is set to zero, you're still getting the baseline sharpening as defined by Adobe.  This is different from the default adjustable sharpening, which is simply a suggested ...
  • I work around that by keeping the number of files per folder relatively small. Actually, I try to do that with everything, not just photos. Organizing into subfolders helps me to find what I'm ...
  • There really is no such thing as a sooc raw image. The job of the raw converter is to interpret the raw data from the sensor in such a way as to produce an actual image that can be viewed. ...
  • I didn't say you disagreed about blown highlights. If you had accurately quoted me and kept the discussion limited to the actual topic then we could have discussed this intelligently. But hissy ...
  • The subject line of the post you replied to was Blown highlights, and that was understood to be part of the discussion. I was only attempting to put into context what I'd said about highlights in ...
  • You exaggerate the frequency and severity of the issue, as proven by the excellent results people obtain daily from Canon DSLRs. But when it does become important, the issue exists in the shadows, ...
  • The panel doesn't care, but you do if you want a specific size.  For example, if you want to ensure a 5-inch image on a 96ppi display then that's what you resize to.  Sure you could do the math ...
  • Replied in Blown highlights
    Unless a camera is faulty, blown highlights are caused by the photographer, not the camera. We can discuss recoverable shadow detail, and that's a valid topic, but I don't think there's a hardware ...
  • I mostly agree, but not necessarily in every case.  For example, to display an image when you have a specific target device in mind, dpi can be relevant. On the other hand, ppi has no real meaning ...
  • Replied in Resizing?
    Do you see the moire at the original resolution?  Sometimes it's caused or aggravated by resizing, and it can be worsened by resizing to certain multiples of the original.  Also, a different ...
  • You don’t need 50 MP for video, and you don’t need to spend $4K to get decent video. This primarily is a high-resolution still camera that has a video mode.  Canon certainly didn't set the price ...
  • Perhaps so, but when they succeed then they've got something that they can be proud to put their names on. Actual accomplishments. When we don't succeed then at least there are lessons learned and ...
  • Look for a DxO FilmPack folder in Photoshop's Plug-ins folder, and delete it.
  • Driverless automobiles are coming, but I wouldn't want mine to determine where I'm going to go today. I want my tools to follow my instructions, not the other way around. If your dream software ...
  • If there was only one correct collection of settings then the software wouldn't be asking you for that information. For example, if you make prints then you might want to begin with 6500K, 90 cd/m2 ...
  • Replied in Maybe
    Have you swapped the final image files?  That is, do you know how an image processed on the other PC looks when opened in PS on your PC? Also, are the color space and bit-depth settings in PS the ...
  • Replied in Maybe
    The computer itself won't affect the image if it's functioning properly. However, the display and/or display calibration will affect what you see. If that causes you to make adjustments that ...
  • Well, the reason they now collect sales tax in North Carolina is that they are now employing people there and thus contributing to the local economy. If you look at the financials, Amazon's profits ...
