  • IMHO, Neat Image is arguably the best standalone noise reduction software available. See this thread: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/59545960 If I were not shooting Fuji X-Trans, DxO would be ...
  • Given the relatively high density of trouble exhibited so far, all the company has to do is extend the deal deadline by 7-10 days. That would relieve a lot of stress, wouldn't do the company any ...
  • Replied in Topaz Studio
    That's not what the new program is (not yet). It brings in Raw files (Fx Lab does not) and has some simple basic editing tools and allows for layering of adjustments. In its base form, it's free - ...
  • Replied in Topaz Studio
    If you have no Topaz software and like their effects based on the trial, the $70 price for the pro modules is a superb deal in my opinion. You are getting much of the important functionality of ...
  • Replied in Topaz Studio
    OK. Had to do this because I haven't found a direct comparison of the new Adjustments to Topaz's original filters. Please accept this as a general guide and not a definitive comparison - I could ...
  • Joe - hadn't occurred to me that my versions of Adjust and Simplify may not be the latest. Thanks for the tip. I'll see if it matters; I'll put in a ticket for any other technical issues that remain. ...
  • I surrendered to the Adobe subscription model last month so I've paid for a year through next May. I really wanted to explore what the CC versions did. I have accumulated "ownership" (I know, ...
  • On my Windows 10 machine, Studio doesn't even show up as a plug-in in Photoshop nor under the Edit In or Plug-in Extras in Lightroom. DJB
  • Replied in Topaz Studio
    Excellent quick summary. Thanks for the link. DJB
  • Replied in Topaz Studio
    Haven't read the link provided by Ian Yorke in this thread, but I have now spent a few minutes with Studio. Loose and limited first impressions: 1. Takes a long time to  load a Fuji RAF file, and ...
  • Replied in Topaz Studio
    I do have FX Lab,which was primarily a central non-plug-in access to the filters. The new program seems quite a bit more comprehensive - not a Lightroom competitor, but containing some useful ...
  • Sorry - this response is limited, as I have never fully explored DeNoise's capabilities, and cannot use DxO on my current work as I shoot Fuji X-Trans. However, based on quality of results alone, ...
  • Replied in Topaz Studio
    No time yet but it's downloaded and installed. First impression is that the free version is useful for existing Topaz filters standalone. Not sure what the extra 14 "adjustments" get you but ...
  • DxO does recognize raw file from my old G6. You're right at least with respect to Prime - only workls on supported Raw files. I agree - I think that for high ISO Prime is really effective voodoo ...
  • I tried using a dng created by Iridient's X-Transformer. Prime was not available in DxO 10 for that format. I'm downloading Adobe's current version of the dng converter as I write this and will ...
  • Created discussion thread Neat Image Revisited
    I received a teaser e-mail from ABSoft about upgrading the Neat Image PS plug-in to v. 8.2 the other day, and downloaded a trial. As trial versions go – this is actually a “demo” – it is limited ...

  • Best camera I ever owned - all 8 MP. Didn't get any dates, but as I've been happily married 40+ years, didn't matter. Could barely pick it up now, but sold it for a good price several years ago....

  • My old Digital Rebel is now with my cousin and to my knowledge still taking great 6 MP pictures. No Canon camera required at this time (shooting Fuji now). You can see the long parade of Canon ...
