@obetz I don’t agree with @JoJu’s rant but neither do I consider it appropriate to consider DxPL as “just” a RAW converter, I want the “best bang for my buck”.
As I stated I bought DxO OpticsPro for JPG processing and I consider it important that the product maintains some sort of balance, i.e. other products are getting way better than DxPL when it comes to de-noising JPG images!
While I understand the concerns of many that DxO will spread themselves “too thin” and fail to keep the edge with the RAW processing aspects of the product some of the features that have been added only require a minor tweak to complete the work started.
So in the case of GPS data the DxPL map icon is not active until co-ordinates have been entered (or so it seems) so I visited the web to get the co-ordinates and Google Maps allowed them to be copied but as a comma delimited string which DxPL was not prepared to accept, i.e. I had to break it apart, how hard would it be to do that in the software @Musashi!
So as yet another “workaround” I entered 0 and 0 in DxPL and the map icon becomes active so I pressed the icon
and it takes you to the map somewhere off Africa! I entered the search name, “Highdown Gardens” in my case
Copied the co-ordinates
DxPL “gagged” on the data
If the map icon was always active and the target field programming was smart enough to split the two co-ordinates the product would be as useful as IMatch and the other products that have map access from within the product!
@obetz it was me that brought up IMatch, @JoJu is a Mac user and IMatch is a Windows only product! I don’t expect DxPL to match IMatch and in truth I prefer the simplicity of DxPL for keywords etc. but its search functions need some work!
Yes it would but the “snapshot” capability needs to be of a rendered image, i.e. having to re-render every time you select an image to compare is just too slow and how much rendering should be applied to the images, @cernoch.r and others want to see more than the tiny preview of the de-noised window but rendering on my slow graphics card would slow the editing process to a crawl!
But it is part of image processing, as is adding IPTC data, keywords etc! To have to add those externally is possible but requires additional expenditure for yet another program (which I did last year with IMatch) and disrupts the edit process yet again.
I only use additional programs where I can do so cheaply and without too much disruption to the image processing workflow!
