I’ve some 15mm images too. What I don’t like is that a reset doesn’t reset everything. An image once opened in an older version of PL shows only the “optical corrections only” without a crop correction, all the others are with crop correction.
Exporting this image to another directory and opening it shows all the presets without crop correction.
Pre-PLv63 the automated default was to “Constrain to Image”. Now, with PLv63, this is a user-decided choice - BUT, the default is set to “(Do NOT) Constrain to Image” … which is the opposite to the previous behaviour.
I suspect this was an implementation mistake - due to the confusing state of the setting within the Preset files … where the OFF-state for this setting is “True” !!
@Barbara-S … Might this be added to the list to be fixed, please.
What exactly does constrain to image mean? When I tick the constrain to image box it just fills in the missing pixels removed from the optical corrections. For example with optical corrects applied the image is 5776-3843 with the constrain to image box ticked it’s back the native sensor resolution of 6048-4024?
Should I leave this box ticked or unticked?
As @Wolfgang notes; If “Constrain to Image” is not activated you will see the “exterior black parts”. If it is activated, an automatic-crop will be applied to keep any “black parts” outside the cropped area.
With the default Dxo standard present Constrain to image is not activated, Dxo optical corrections are activated and I can’t see any black areas however resolution is slightly reduced. This makes sense to me as the software has stretched the image and has cropped out the black areas. however if I activate constrain to image the image magnifies in slightly and resolution increases back to native sensor resolution so my question is if the optical corrections have already cropped away some resolution how is resolution now being added back despite having already being cropped away?
I can’t quite follow your description, Hayden - but, the result from “Constrain to Image” is also working in conjunction with your Crop settings - and whether they’re Auto or manual, etc
- play with these and see if it makes sense.
sorry I probably didn’t explain it Very well.
Have a look at the two Screenshots
Note the resolution of the first screenshot which I understand is from the cropping of the image due to the optical corrections being applied.
second screenshot the optical corrections are still applied so the image has been cropped and resolution should be the same as the first screenshot but the only difference is constrain to image box has been ticked which for some reason causes the resolution of the image to increase back to what it was before optical corrections and cropping was applied, is this what its meant to do? if so what’s causing this? is the software upscaling the image back to pre crop resolution?
From what I see, there’s a difference between crop and constrain to image.
If distortion is activated, an optical correction is applied.
Cropping means just cutting out the black parts. The image gets smaller.
Constrain to image means enlarge the image so that the black parts are out of the image. Due to the fact that the heigth and the width aren’t equal the aspect ration is altered a little.
Keep aspect ratio, well just means keep aspect ratio. The size of the image is the original size with the same aspect ratio.
It might help if you watch the move/zoom window. There you can see it happening.
