Do you use it in a stand-alone mode or as a LR plug-in? I do get good results even with default values but there are many settings that can be customized to your taste. Did you tweak some of them? Perhaps a JPEG vs PN comparison shots would help.


How would you use this or Cap1 as a plug in? I am using Cap1 alone but would love to go directly to NIK even if through LR. I have heard Aperture messes up Cap1 images. I did not buy PN but tried it, I have tried Iridient. PN was not hard to use, cap1 does well with XTrans and Ricoh RAW. It has become my go to but I hat the lack of cataloging, maybe I have missed something.

There is no plugin support for C1 at the moment. PN has a plugin to export a file directly into Photoshop or LR, and I believe you do not need to create a tiff or jpeg first, it just opens. Raw adjustments from one converter to the next are not possible since they read their own adjustments. So to go from C1 to LR you need to create a non-raw file and export.

What do you mean by the lack of cataloguing in C1?

I was able to name my imports awhile back but all of that has vanished and now I just get my imports by the date, so even though I store all on my external I  have not been able to create any specific folders for lack of a better term, lets say the date and camera I am using, etc. There must be something I am doing wrong in import, I do import from my External and I name all of my folders that I have in there but those names to not follow, just the date of import.
