  • DxO PL doesn't have any DAM to speak of, so you'll need something for that. A basic free one could be something like XnView MP. Or digikam. Or Bridge. Etc. If so, AP will do just fine. Inpainting ...
  • This is nice but I wish they introduced the "Solo mode" like in Lighroom or darktable -- without it I have to manually collapse tools before moving on to another one.
  • This sucks. I have a Haswell processor and the latest Intel updates apparently cause all sorts of stability problems (rebooting ). My Mobo ASRock Z87 is not on their support list , and they keep ...
  • You can't really say anything about colours until you calibrate and profile your monitor. See this article:
  • I use uBlock Origin, uMatrix and NoScript on Firefox Quantum. You've got to set up the latter two to allow JS for your favourite sites but once you do it, it's pretty transparent. Allow only those ...
  • Replied in fix corrupt NEFs
    You can try fixing the corrupt files with a utility written by the author of ExifTool, but your luck with the tool depends on what caused the corruption.
  • Replied in Mint
    Mint Cinnamon is what I've been using so far, and I like it -- very stable and quite customizable (enough for my needs). I'll probably go back to it if I can't make DisplayCal work for me with Deepin.
  • Thanks for that link to the comparative test -- very useful. I've been toying with the idea of buying a 1050Ti card but now I can see that springing for the 1060 is a better move. darktable , DxO PL ...
  • You seem to forget that a number of people still use the standalone version of Lr. It can be discussed in isolation from Ps, and the OP was pretty clear they wanted to discuss that very subject -- ...
  • OK, so you haven't tried all raw converters -- how can you say "no any other software..."? Can't you see there's a basic flaw in the logic? You speak of your own requirements of a raw converter and ...
  • It's hardly the truth. I use Lr, but I can tell you that for me darktable or Capture One are real alternatives to Lr. Fair enough. Which software specifically have you tried to be able to formulate ...
  • Can you point me to a Lr plug-in which would allow me to edit my raw files from the Sony RX100 without the obligatory lens correction (which smears the corners)?
  • Thanks. I'll have to see how the Develop Persona NR compares to the Noiseware and Topaz DeNoise plug-ins that I use. Somehow I assumed that those specialized plug-ins would be better but you're ...
  • Replied in layer comps
    Maybe layer comps will work for you? It's not side-by-side but I actually prefer flipping between various states when e.g. comparing detail like sharpness or NR.
  • No black dye, though (only Bk pigment for text), and the resolution is not as good as in the Pixma iP series...

  • An interesting move. I converted one Epson and one Canon consumer printers to a continuous ink system (dye), and both served me well until a print head failure. It didn't make sense for me to...

  • It does (thanks) and it doesn't. It looks like it's been on their roadmap since July 2015, so I'm not sure how seriously they treat this issue.
  • And if you want 101 shortcuts to Photoshop in 5 minutes, watch this old Deke McClelland's video ;)

  • This is a major design flaw with the Develop Persona in AP -- ACR in CS6 (and in Photoshop Elements) allows you to store the raw editing parameters in a sidecar xmp file, whereas there's no such ...
  • Noiseware has worked for me in AP from the start but, like Nik, Topaz and Portrait Pro, it loses saturation with a 16-bit, ProPhoto RGB tiffs when viewed on a calibrated, wide-gamut monitor. While ...
