Re: A case study of IQ differences between Luminar 4 vs DxO PL4

I noticed that on my phone screen, it does look too much. On my laptop, it doesn't look nearly as over the top so I didn't really realize it.

I guess it's the downside of not having calibrated monitor and pushing the saturation to the limits.

While I agree that the saturation is too high in PL4 image, the textures in the tree stump is still far more realistic looking in PL4 than in Luminar 4 which is interesting to me. The textures in PL4 looks a lot more painting-like, which is also something I noticed from other files I edited in Luminar 4. In my limited experience, DxO seems to retain more photo-realistic textures even when pushing the saturation quite a bit.
