i am slowly ploughing through my rawfile archive. (# im bored)
Updating xmp files with GPS and description details. (manual push new metadata to xmp.)
then a run through v5 for beter denoising and clearer view in sharpnes. (more development experience too)
add at export suffix “_v5” and archieve folder also adding v5.
So i can keep track on progres because it’s once in a wile when i have time and spirit to do so.
i think there is a decent improvement to be found for smallsensor and m43 sensor rawfile.
Even at low iso versions.
i think DxOPL v5 is complete enough to acomplisch this task from metadata to image.
The new control line feature with the luminance and chrome selection and better clone and repair does the trick on old sensors.
It’s a time consuming job.
Because i am updating all meta data. Adding information.
Then re -edit. Check against first version redo if not satisfied.
Then replace jpegs and rename folder “_v5” so i know which are done. And also rename source folder.
Update sub folder inside with dop and xmp as backup for mistakes by me or DxO.
Clean up remains.
I’ve been revisiting photos in PL3, 4, and 5 including going back as far as 2008. I’ve done considerably more than 2,000 photos. So far.
I was quite surprised just how good some of my early photos were. At the time, I didn’t own a good camera. Now it turns out I did… it just needed the right tools to reveal.
So true. I’ve gone back as far as my first raws, which was 2011. I’ve reached 2017, so far!
my fz200 sensor is in base iso not deepprime friendly:
original first edition probably PLv1.2 (PRIME)
v5 version 1 40% deepprime
v5 20% deepprime and more microcontrast for the punch:
but this is better:
Last compare details and noise at 200%
left first one mid v5 right a tryout earlier.
first is much noisier but has detail
right version is noisier and softer.
mid is best.
see glas reflextion
Edit :I add the image later i forgot the glas image to upload.
Yes, all of the time.
I use one of the ‘star’ ratings to remind me to go back and re-check images when new PL versions / features are released.
However, I would appreciate an expanded and automatic metadata selection that includes the version of PL used to process the images as well as a flag there to indicate ‘look at this again in the future’.
