  • The clock does not start over after 5 years. At 60+ months of subscribing, you can convert to a current perpetual license for free. There is a sliding scale of price with subs shorter than 60 ...
  • For me, Deep Prime XD is a big enough improvement over Deep Prime to justify the upgrade cost of PhotoLab 6. It is pretty amazing, especially with images containing very heavy noise. For moderate ...
  • P.S. I realize that Topaz DeNoise is not considered a first rate raw converter, so I ran a Capture One converted TIFF file through it and got essentially the same results.
  • I recently performed comparison testing between PhotoLab 6 Deep Prime XD and Topaz DeNoise AI on image files shot at ISO 25,000 in low light conditions with a Leica CL (APS-C) camera. In all ...
  • Replied in It IS Gouging
    C1 would have faced the same moral dilemma whenever they announced the policy change. At some point, the old perpetual model will go away. Pushing the announcement forward or backwards is ...
  • It's purely a marketing decision by Capture One, and they will either sink of swim with it. If the former, expect the price to be lowered.
  • To be honest, I am extremely happy with Capture One's rendering of Q2 Monochrom images. I have been hearing good things about Topaz Photo AI and have thought about giving it a try, mainly with a ...
  • I challenge anyone to find an example of a change in terms of ownership for any software that is not received by some individuals as a great injustice, if not a personal affront. The complaints ...
  • That is true for virtually all image editing software. Even Adobe's servers can be shut down or hacked.
  • Thanks for the list. It appears that both the Leica Q2 and Q2M are supported by Topaz. And yes, DNG is the raw format used by Leica.
  • DNGs, that is, from the Q2M
  • In one of his recent videos, David Grover hinted that AI would be coming to Capture One. It was a soft hint, but I think that I heard it.
  • Perpetual licenses will still be available, but updates during the year will be issued only for bug fixes and the like. New features will come with the next version, which can be purchased via ...
  • I wonder how many Capture One users chose it largely because of the availability of a perpetual license. One has to assume that C1 marketers know their user base and that they have determined that ...
  • Just what I needed to know. Thanks.
  • It's still unclear to me whether the volume correction tools in ViewPoint are included in PhotoLab 6. Could someone please provide clarification? Is there any reason to have both programs as ...
  • Are you using the specific color profile for your camera in Capture One? It should be found in Base Characteristics.
  • Relative to the overall amount that I will likely spend on photography in the next 12 months, the cost of the upgrade barely moves the needle, so I see no reason to be overly concerned about it. ...
  • Whenever a new version of almost any software is released, there are complaints from various people who are unhappy, because certain improvements that they consider to be very important were not ...
  • Digital and film cameras Just curious, and I cannot find the answer in a cursory web search.
