Upgrade to NiK Filters - Thoughts?
Marianne posted a topic in Let's talk about picsI signed up for some upcoming DxO webinars on the upgrades to the Nik collection filters and was wondering if anyone had given the upgrades a look or if you're planning to check out the webinars? Here are links to the Nik Webinars I have the old filters upgraded from my ages-ago purchase after Google bought them, which I use via LR (can't get them to work with PS anymore). I had intended to purchase the DxO upgrades but they never seemed like much and they didn't have an upgrade option for those of us whoo actually paid for the filters, though now it's so long ago that it's the lack of something new that keeps me from upgrading. I'm wondering what they've added. It looks like they are focusing a lot on Vivenza (which I use on occasion) and Silver Effex, my go-to for black and white, which I find absolutely perfect as is, but I'm intrigued. I've played around with the B&W options in LR and even written articles about it, but the artistry of Silver Effex is leap years ahead of LR. I use Color Effex a lot and also enjoy playing with Analog Pro which is like diving into a mountain of candy - you never really know what you'll get but it's usually something fun. I wish they'd make it easier to save presets in Analog Pro, the Color Effex presets are great for processing a batch of images (albeit one at a time, with work on U-Points requiring you to do each separately). Anyway, thoughts welcome pre and post webinars.
I am not a Nikon user, but for those who are it may be interesting. One more option for editing. Need to register but is free. Nikon NX Studio https://www.nikonusa.com/en/Nikon-Products/Imaging-Software/nx-studio.page Stay safe, andre
Hi All I have just upgraded to windows 10 which has finally killed my legacy keywording workflow I am looking for a tool that can help me: 1. easily sort individual keywords 2. remove duplicates 3. if it can also suggest additional keywords that would be great 4. if it could correct or warn about my atrocious spelling - even better Some of you oldtimers will be able to recognize this as the now, completely dead (not mostly dead), ImageKeyworder Thanks for any and all pointers and suggestions
Has anyone had success using the Transfer and Tagging App for Imaging Edge on an android phone for live news (or stock)? Is there a way to test the metadata transfer and FTP functions of this app on a windows 10 local machine?
domf posted a topic in Alamy Quality Control and technical talkI'm thinking of ordering Luminar 4, has anyone seen the demo for the Luminar 4 upgrade and planning to purchase one. Also how does it compare to Lightroom . Thanks in advance.
On1 Photo RAW 2019
Rick Lewis posted a topic in Alamy Quality Control and technical talkI took the new On1 Photo RAW 2019 RAW converter for a test drive last week and ended up buying it. WOW, what a difference from previous editions!! Stand-alone, no subscription and because I had purchased something from On1 years ago (I guess they still had my email address), I purchased it for only $79. It renders Fuji RAW files beautifully, same goes for Olympus, and Nikon images. It has many of the features as LR CC and is fully integrated. You can even transfer your LR catalog if you wish, but this software does not need a catalog!! Here is very good news for some of you: you can keyword your images in the Metadata module and they transfer over in AIM!!! I did a test and it seems to work brilliantly. Go to their website and test drive it for 30 days. https://www.on1.com/products/photo-raw/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIvJi3irTm3gIVVFmGCh3TogyaEAAYASAAEgJPBfD_BwE The only things, so far, that I find a little inadequate is less effective CA correction (I go to LR for that), and perhaps noise reduction (which I seldom need) is a little less effective.
Reprocessing older images
Johnnie5 posted a topic in Alamy Quality Control and technical talkI often go back and reprocess old images or even more recent ones that I think I can improve or make a different version of for Alamy. After watching this video I learned that there is another reason to turn your attention to older photos. I like to think my processing skills have improved and I know the software has gotten better. He talks about color rendering and demosaicing have improved for older cameras, He states towards the end of the video that Capture One and Lightroom have evolved over the years to give better results making it worthwhile to revisit those older images.
