DxO PhotoLab (Mac) / Re: DxO Photo lab with vintage MAC running under Yosemite

Unfortunately there comes a time when old hardware cannot cope with the demands of new software. I think you are making the right decision, a new Mac is the way to go :-)

Let's call it "computational bokeh", just saw a new article from your colleagues on DXOMARK :-)

Support response was as follows:-

Quote
The way the program is currently designed is that there are some very core corrections and adjustments that are made to every photo in order to allow the image to be properly rendered and used in the program. These corrections cannot be turned off since they are essential to the proper operation of the program. Using the 'No corrections' preset will turn off all other processing except those related to the core processes.

So 'No Corrections' isn't quite what you may think and for me anyway is different to the operation of Optics Pro 11.

Ok, probably you have the function switched off (you can easy check in in Preferences window).

Thank you

Okay,

Got it  ;) In any way I suggest you to find time to play with PL local corrections and provide us with the feedback.

Hi Svetlana,

I appreciate your quick reply, thank you.

Well, I tried Unsharp Tool in Filmpack, this is usable in single cases but looks a bit like David Hamilton Romantic Girls Pictures from the early eighties ;-)

Miniature effect defines a vertical or horiziontal line/area and everything outside of this area can be unsharpened. This can be applied for certain scenaries only e.g. street scenes or maybe landscapes and looks mostly like model railway - what it should actually. 

Both effects clearly depend on picture content and composition and actually look a bit artificial on closer examination.

I have not tried local corrections as I could not find time to download PL yet but I assume this would not do the job either.

What I mean is to leave areas with high microcontrast as they are and further decrease microcontrast/create blur wherever it is already lower. This effect should be applied of course after e.g. denoising and sharpening in the technical workflow.

Look at pictures made with Portrait Mode in named smartphones, then you will se what I mean. They look as if the've been taken with a (so called) full frame camera, just natural narrow depth of field.

Thanks again and best regards
Guido

DxO PhotoLab (Windows) / Re: Editing Exif

In PL - previously DoP - is simple to check the lens compatibility issue. Select the image in PL and see the yellow ambiguity logo on the thumbnail image. The thumbnail will react quickly if you change something in the EXIF data. First, select a good image and change something in the EXIF section -> F5 to refresh. If the yellow logo disappear, the change you made solve the trouble.

By the way, the lens data is among of the Manufacture data. Some of them are not editable ( e.g. the Lens ID ) therefore it is not so simple to change all data. In my PhotoME ( a free EXIF editor ) there are ~30 lens data are available.

Hello,

So, let me help you. To submit the ticket to the support use this link  - https://support.dxo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

As for the logs of the application, you can find them here - c:\Users\user_name\Documents\DxO PhotoLab logs\.

About the sidecar, it's a .dop file created next to your image in the image folder in case you apply a correction to the image (this option is enabled by default in the application). So if you didn't switch it off manually, you should have that sidecar.

 As for the screenshots, yep do as you wrote.

Do not hesitate to ask if you have any trouble.

Regards,
Svetlana G.



Thank you for your help.
I have done as you suggested, with the exception of the 'Sidecar' .dop file, which I am unable to locate in the image folder.
