On startup the program annoys with unnecessary and wrong information about an alleged update which is in reality an upgrade. If you then click on update, you will be taken to the website to buy the update that is now an upgrade. What is this nonsense. That’s why I’m now blocking the Nik Collection with Little Snitch.
The way DXO tries to force the upgrade on you is more than annoying.
A year later and it is still happening. As aptly pointed out, this popup for an “update” is actually advertising for an “upgrade” and totally inappropriate.
I’ve updated DxO when I certainly didn’t need to and bought the Nik suite when it did nothing more than the one I had, all in an attempt to support their effort. This is how loyality is rewarded? This is just so wrong.
As a long time DxO user and a very longtime Nik user, the popup is very annoying, but I am most disappointed with the marketing mentality that thought this was a good idea! Makes me question my continued support of a company that embraces these values.
There is a good deal of competition so plenty to choose from…
This is not only annoying, but it’s freezing my Photoshop when I interact with the pop-up window while the image is loading.
When that happened, the only way I found to get back control of my Photoshop again is killing the whole thing and losing all my work.
This is a nightmare.
