  • Matching the "look" from one camera to another is much more complicated than just using a colour target. Color targets will only match the colour at a certain luminosity and doesn't account for the ...
  • This is not an option in LR at this time. What you are requesting is an AI function that will analyse each image and apply the spot removal. There are options available that will do this; Retouch4M ...
  • Correct. A camera profile is simply a LUT.
  • A 3D LUT is a 'Look Up Table' where colours are remapped. It is used to change the colours from one value to another. There are many use cases for this. It can be used to create profiles for a camera.
  • One thing that is often overlooked is that whilst it isn't too difficult to approximate the output from different camera bodies, we often have only one image and nothing to compare to. This is ...
  • Replied in X2D v GFX 100
    Technically working with RAW files you can get the same results from most cameras as long as the raw files contain the same amount of information. However, in reality it is hard to exactly match ...
  • I worked with GFX100 files with zero issues on my MacBook Pro M1. In general it is often best to keep the image files on the internal drive, but if your external drive is fast and connected ...
  • Any modern camera is capable of outperforming the photographer. The gear isn’t the deciding factor.
  • I have tethered with the GFX100 and LR. It works fine, but there are some limitations: - No live view (you have to use the Fujifilm X Aquire for that) - No focus control (as far as I recall) Other ...
  • Adobe is a slow moving corporation with many priorities across 30+ apps so LR will develop    at a slower pace than some of the competitors that are focusing on their LR alternatives. That said I ...
  • Did you try my settings from the original post? If not, then try the following: In PhotoLab: Turn OFF Unsharp Mask Turn ON DeepPrime Turn ON Lens Sharpness and set Global to something around +0.7 ...
  • I normally import all images into LR and do the culling there. I then select all the images I want to work on and send them to PhotoLab as outlined in my first post. Once the images are in PhotoLab ...
  • This thread also exists over on the Medium Format forum as that is were I used to post. There is some interesting posts there where some with more technical insights are offering their insights. ht ...
  • That is very interesting and confirms my hunch, if correct. I cannot replicate the results in LR  for many images. The tools just aren't there. It does seem to affect some images more than others, ...
  • I do not see this in my files, even at 1000% zoom. It looks like a sharpening artefact to me. Did you apply sharpening to the file after the NR was applied? In my DxO converted files I do not add ...
  • That is a very noticeable improvement in sharpness and perceived detail. I don't know what algorithm DxO is applying, but it could have something to do with lens profiles in conjunction with ...
  • Glad you found it useful. For the record, I use a 2021 MacBook Pro M1Pro with 16GB ram and 10 core CPU and 16 core GPU. This is the midrange model with fairly basic spec. It has always felt fast ...
  • Round-tripping is less convenient than doing all the work in one place and I don't think it is for everyone. Perhaps it is local contrast - perhaps it is something else, I don't know what DxO is ...
  • I too enjoy these exercises as they push us to re-evaluate our processes and perhaps find improvements. This scene is challenging as there is very high contrast from the midday sun. Judging by ...
  • This should work equally well for the GFX files. I have recently switched to the R5, hence all the examples here were taken with that camera. Here are some 200% crops from a GFX100 image: I will ...
