  • That's how I did it. At the time I was using LR 5.7 when the news broke out about Adobe's new subscription plans. Shortly afterwards Phase One had a sale & was offering C1P 7, current version, for ...
  • Replied in Luminar 3
    I installed it briefly on my laptop about 2 weeks ago when I was trying Affinity & ACDSee Ultimate & it was so sluggish that I removed it immediately. And I have no issues using C1P 11 on this ...
  • This is the number one reason which will eventually lead me to stay with C1P.  Also the DAM for C1P fits my current needs.  And I'm also trying Affinity Photo & ACDSee Ultimate Photo Studio.
  • In case anyone is interested ACDSee has a separate levels tool but it's only accessible in the edit mode.  But I haven't been able to locate the wonderful highlight enhancement tool in this mode.
  • Well It definitely installed it.  I know this for a fact because I saw it being installed with my own eyes with the ACDSee software.
  • I prefer them separate. That's just curve performing a similar action. And I'm trying to like this program. Which on my old PC doesn't work as well as C1P 11. Every time I export an image on ...
  • I rarely use curves myself.  But since Light EQ wasn't cutting it for highlight recovery I tried the curves since ACDSee has no levels.  By the way I use levels on every image I processes in C1P. ...
  • Playing around with ACDSee last night i discovered using the curves tool I could fix the highlight issue.  Also they have another highlight tool mixed in with the exposure & clarity tools which ...
  • If I don't upgrade from version 11 to 12 I will not be able to upgrade to  new versions at their discounted rates. Which used to be $99 a year but last year went up to $199!  But I might try their ...
  • I appreciate the response but I'm not looking to use other softwares to fix something I can't do with ACDSee that I can fix easily & very quickly using the highlight slider on LR or C1P. Again I ...
  • Add me to this list. I downloaded a trial Sunday & I'm finding the same thing. And I'm not trying to recover extremely blown highlights. All I'm trying to do is make the sky & clouds look a little ...
  • After I posted my finding yesterday, which was so bad that led me to search Google and find this thread, I tried using Light EQ with the local adjustments brushes. And even using Light EQ with the ...
  • Today I downloaded a trial of Photo Studio Ultimate 2019 & I'm also very unimpressed with the way Light EQ handles the highlights.  Too bad other than that so far I like this program.
  • Never mind what I said about not being able to see thumbnails of the Affinity save files.  I'm seeing thumbnails. -- https://www.flickr.com/photos/26596858@N08/
  • Someone posted a link with this information in another thread which was from July of 2015. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/10075-affinity-photo-feature-roadmap/ Good point.  I ...
  • Here's a couple of things I don't like. Going from the Develop module to the Photo persona take too long. Also the adjustment sliders are way too sensitive in the Photo module. It's hard to make ...
  • I decided to download a trial last night & so far I'm not liking it.  Going to watch some of Anthony Morganti's tutorials this weekend & see if I changed my mind.  Also they only give you a 10 day ...
  • By history I was referring to the ability to store adjustments information for my edited raw files. And I know C1P has no real history like LR which I've used in the past starting from version 1 ...
  • In the Affinity Photo 1.7 thread users mention the fact there's no history.  And for my needs like i said in that thread that's a major deal breaker.  Was the history recently added?  Also does it ...
  • As soon as it happens I'm in.  Thanks for the link.
