I skipped photolab version7 upgrade (luminosity mask feature was a feature asked for photolab by many and then dxo team choosed to put it in filmpack to force users to buy filmpack. And I can’t support this kind of behavior).
I actually use photolab 6.3.1 windows but it is full of bugs : it either freeze and needs to be restarted or freeze and open a dxo bug feedback windows (I sent tens of feedback to dxo), this more than 10 time a cession (generally when moving denoising microscopic preview window or when moving crop zone, and other).
So, waiting for next major update to know if I continue to support photolab or not, I’d like to install a stable v6 version.
What v6 window version do you use without any problem ?
I tried photolab v7.?? and had no more those probems.
My graphic card drivers are updated.
I add that my workstation is very stable with any other software I use (even with those using graphic cards lot lot more intensively than photolab).
There have been 9 updates following PL 6.3.1. The current version is 6.10.1. It is unlikely that DxO will assist you until you’ve updated to a more current version of PL6 since all those 9 updates contain various bug fixes.
Since I and most other Windows users on this site are not experiencing the consistent problems you are having, they may be related to your computer’s hardware/software configuration. Unfortunately without having access to your computer I can’t suggest many specific things to look at. But as a stating point, I would test by deselecting the Moire control and changing you GPU usage to Use CPU only in Preferences. As a further test I would also make sure as few other programs are running simultaneously as possible.
Since from my first exposure PhotoLab 1 in 2017 I have been a firm believer that to get the full PhotoLab experience one must have the entire suite of PhotoLab, FilmPack and Viewpoint. Anything less is a compromise. As a result for me and many other here it doesn’t really matter which of the three components are updated with the newest features.
This why I asks this in this forum.
I’ve read problems in more current releases than mine. This is why I would like to know which ione works well before choosing wich V6 I will instal (I have downloaded several updates and they are ready to install).
As I said, my configuration runs lot of very hardware intensive softwares (GPU/CPU) without a glitch - professionnal use with dead lines that absolutely must not be exceeded.
Didn’t know this one. I will try.
I did. Without using graphic cards, bug is solved. But it is impossible to use photolab in cpu mode (way, way to slow).
And my gpu drivers are updated.
photolab is the only one application running when I get those bugs.
I know your opinion about this. But if it is what’s needed to get photolab ok, why to make this user confusing thing unless to make think photolab is cheaper than it is really ?
But this is not my point here.
I just need to know which is the more stable v6 version so I can install it.
I read all those notes. But never read something related to my problem since v6.3.1. (except, maybe, the universal “minor bug fixes and improvment” - but it is not a minor bug I have).
I didn’t upgrade since v6.3.1 because I saw other problems in following versions on this forum, and I didn’t want to check if those problems were worse than mine.
