  • Are you running a fully updated version of Photolab 3? RAWs should be supported from version 3.2.0 onwards.
  • My DxO export template renames the photos by adding _DxO at the end of the file name. I export my JPGs into the same folder as the original RAW, and ACDSee picks them up automatically. I can ...
  • Just as a DAM. I have DxO set up as an external editor so I send RAWs from ACDSee to DxO for processing. It works really well. Although if I didn't need DxO's Deep Prime noise reduction for my ...
  • This my approach. My first DAM was Lightroom. I ignored the auto-organise feature and managed the folder structure manually. When I decided to move away from subscription software (not hating, ...
  • Wow. I learn something every day. I knew Elements was simplified but that's taking things to extreme. Some compact cameras' raw files - eg my Panasonic TZ100 - are totally unusable at wide angles ...
  • As a keen DxO user, I'm going to say DxO isn't the best fit for you. The Deep Prime noise reduction - which is excellent - is for raw files only. A much better fit for your use case would be On1 ...
  • I'm with you, but worth noting that Elements offers better compatibility with Photoshop plugins, and has a decent photo organiser built in. They both have their advantages and drawbacks.
  • I'm skipping V5. The main advantages are Fuji compatibility - irrelevant unless you shoot Fuji - and some improvements to the way that Control Points are used. Helpful but not worth the upgrade ...
  • Just got an email. "Best savings of the year" starts in two days. By coincidence (not!) just a day or two before my Filmpack 6 trial runs out.
  • I'm coming up for retirement, and conscious that I can't afford DxO + Nik + Afiinity (the free updates won't last forever!) + ACDSee forever. Amongst all of those, by far the best all-rounder is ...
  • Thank you! I photograph documents from time to time (especially post-Covid) and I've always just accepted that I have to rotate a lot of my images manually. I'll check my camera settings.
  • If you're laying the book flat to take the photos, the orientation sensor in your camera will have a hard time telling which way is up. Your camera will make its best guess, but it'll be wrong a ...
  • I think this is a very common workflow. It exactly mirrors mine.
  • It's not a rolling contract. You enter a new 12 month contract when the old one expires. Hence the termination fee.
  • Faststone used to exhibit the same behaviour. A tiif would almost always display as a two-page image. The bug was fixed a long time ago - I stopped using Faststone when I bought into ACDSee so I ...
  • This is basically my point. I don't use Raw Therapee, but I did download the RT LUTs and sometimes I use them in Affinity. It's good but ... Film Pack is better. Isn't choice a great thing? I ...
  • Duplicate reply, ignore, sorry
  • Smart lighting is a good starting point. DxO applies it by default in the standard preset. At modest settings, it does a decent job of compressing shadows and highlights without messing up contrast. ...
  • Replied in DXO Photolab 5
    I'll be following this thread with interest. I don't see anything compelling, I must admit, but I'll be curious to the the experiences of early adopters. If they'd upgraded the Deep Prime ...
  • On1 are currently suffering from some confusion over this change in approach but I think it makes sense. I use On1 for its DAM, raw processing and styling. It really is good enough to replace ...
