  • Seen both of these videos before. I use both programs. With the probable exception of extremely granular color selection/editing capability (and maybe under micro inspection a bit better ...
  • Good reminders. Thanks. It's been ages since I used a camera-mount flash in anything but idiot mode (that was on a Nikon), and now I recall that was a manual proposition as well, the most ...
  • True enough - hoping to avoid trial-and-error testing as much as possible. I shoot manual using my studio strobes, so it's not a big adjustment - but that's for portraits - this is a party. Might ...
  • Created discussion thread Simple Flash Question (X-T2)
    Shooting an anniversary party this weekend. Ran a test using a Nissin Di700A flash set for TTL. Tested with a 16-50 XC lens; Camera is set to aperture priority at f5.6, shutter speed auto and ISO ...
  • Clarity doesn't appear as a separate adjustment in the adjustment panel. Your program is working as expected, with precision contrast and the hsl thingy selected. Confusing as hell. DJB
  • Just confirmed that in the ACDSee 2018 trial, Studio installs and operates fine as an external editor, which will intern run the new Clarity adjustments, and the classic plug-ins, but it is slow ...
  • Studio is up to v 1.1.8 as of this morning. If you download the latest version, the installation routine will "uninstall" your existing version. No crash with RAF files in the latest version. DJB
  • See this thread - https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/60045428 using Studio going forward may be unavoidable at some point. DJB
  • The latest version of Neat Image is pretty good. If Fuji X files worked in DxO OP, I'd use prime, but, alas . . . DJB
  • I strongly suspect you can use Studio itself as an external editor in ACDSee ( haven't re-installed since a recent hard drive replacement), but from everything I've read, there's no .8bf plug-in ...
  • Good news. I was able to close the service request, as after several hours the promised "pro adjustments" that make up the new “Clarity Workflow” were fully functional.  I may have inadvertently ...
  • Nope. If you go on the Studio forum, you'll see some fairly aggravated discussion regarding the confusion arising from this development. The Clarity upgrade (fondly named "Clarity in Studio") is ...
  • Created discussion thread Topaz Clarity users . . .
    Has anyone licensing Clarity 1 successfully accessed the "upgrade" that is now only ported through Studio (not a direct Adobe plugin)? I tried following their "guidelines" on their website linked ...
  • In Capture One, click on Window/Workspace/Dual Monitor-Large Viewer. Drag the new window to your second monitor. In Photoshop, the only way I've found to use a second monitor the way I like it is ...
  • Still can't open a TIF or PSD saved in Photoshop with layers. Affinity Photo can do that. DJB
  • Thanks for the encouragement. I finally pulled out my old Epson 1670 and hooked it up via USB. I downloaded the latest version of Vuescan, and it is now a tool in the Import menu in Photoshop, so ...
  • Since I couldn't get Viewscan to recognize my network printer (that's the Brother), I gave up on that option - the old Canon scanner I still have doesn't scan well . . . so I re-tried Photoshop's ...
  • I tried Crop & Straighten yesterday and it would not segregate the images even with a space but I'll try again with fewer photos and bigger spaces.  Vuescan tried valiantly with a pre-defined row ...
  • It's a Brother multi-function printer/scanner. I have vuescan and will download the latest version to see if the machine is supported. I think it was an older Epson scanner I used before. Thanks ...
  • Created discussion thread Help on scanning project
    I'm finally starting my premier Retirement project - scanning all our pre-digital family photos. Alas, this involves scanning prints only as all the negatives were disposed of by a well-meaning ...
