  • You've taken my comment somewhat out of context.  We're talking about capture NR and output sharpening that comes much later, unless OP was going to do no more processing or resizing. What I was ...
  • The two functions (NR and sharpening) are unrelated. Sharpening is typically done at the end of the processing chain, so if the image you're working on will have no further processing, then ...
  • Here's my thinking. Grain, unlike digital noise, is the actual image. Remove all of the grain and you're left with a completely blank slate. In a digital capture, it's possible to carefully remove ...
  • I've used it since 2010, and I've not seen anything better for capture and print sharpening.
  • The DxO lens corrections tend to be more sophisticated than Canon's, even when both programs support a Camera+lens combination. PRIME NR is very good too, but probably not available in the free ...
  • Redeem it now, and Adobe will extend your subscription by a year.  If you pay monthly, it would extend to January 2019.  If you're paid up through July 2018, it'll be extended to July 2019.
  • You will receive a key and an Adobe activation link via e-mail.  If you're extending a current subscription then that's all you need.  If you're also installing the software, you'll download it ...
  • I'm glad you found at least a partial solution. The Windows magnifier moves with the mouse pointer, so adjusting the sliders wouldn't be an issue on Windows, but you would be moving the mouse ...
  • The floating magnifier is a Windows feature that works with whatever is on the screen, and it follows the mouse pointer (until you switch it off).  I'd be very surprised if your Mac OS doesn't ...
  • I don't know about the Mac OS, but my Windows PC has a floating magnifier that can be activated with a single click, and I can place the magnifier over the small preview window.  The magnification ...
  • Are you viewing both at 100%?  If not, the difference is probably caused by the resampling methods employed by the two viewers.  At 100%, sharpness should be the same.
  • I admit this is somewhat OT, but a house is never really yours.  Try not paying property taxes and see how long you get to keep it. Property taxes typically contain assessments for things that you ...
  • Replied in Force?
    I respectfully disagree. As others have pointed out, the CC subscription doesn't force anybody to do anything. This is simply about people deciding whether or not the subscription is worth the ...
  • Sounds like a Mac issue.  Both versions run at about the same speed on my 4-year-old PC, under 30 seconds for a Canon 5D3 raw to 16-bit TIFF.  If anything, PhotoLab might be slightly faster, but ...
  • Edit/Preferences/Performance
  • If they don't list a lens on their roadmap then there's no way to know for certain whether it'll ever be added. It depends on demand, but typically, it takes only a few months. At certain times, ...
  • That's what some people said when PS initially went subscription at $20 per month. Then Adobe quickly dropped the price to $10, while adding LR to the package, where it's been for quite a few ...
  • If you're paying $10 per month then you're on the annual plan, billed monthly.  They do offer (last time I checked) a true monthly plan, but the cost is $20 per month.  If you're on that plan then ...
