    Soft-proofing Help

    Thanks. I'll see if they do. The site above looks great except yes it's backlogged and doesn't have the printer here. The Australian listing's profiles are over 15 years old too. Maybe I just need to find a local printer that can do it. But using Officeworks would save a lot of money up...

    Soft-proofing Help

    I have been invited to exhibit some photography at a local venue, however I cannot afford to print 'professional' photographic prints. However I do have a i1 Display Pro and Colour Passport calibrator and ageing but reliable Adobe RGB capable monitor, so I figure I should be able to obtain the...

    Nik Collection - Batch Processing and Multiple TIF Files

    I mean the files along the workflow path, I just want whatever inputs, and one output, across the whole Nik workflow. Perhaps I'm using it wrong. But it does now seem Nik can do batch-workflow - it just was not initially obvious how to do this.

    GPU Acceleration

    Well my GPU usage rarely rises above 10% however it is noticeably faster on certain operations like yes - moving images around (on screen) and between images - and developer sliders.

    Nik Collection - Batch Processing and Multiple TIF Files

    I am starting to use Nik Collection for HDR - and have discovered that yes you can do batch processing with Nik (just select and export / edit all) - however it accrues a separate TIF file for each workflow step, meaning I can rapidly wind up with all these TIF files in my Lightroom catalogue...

    GPU Acceleration

    Thanks.. I noticed when running through a few images it used around 400MB of VRAM so it's definitely doing something (although I thought it would use far more than that), and the GPU usage momentarily spikes when developing. I will disable GPU acceleration later and see if I notice any...

    Dull photos...

    I am interested in what happens if the op just plays with saturation and vibrancy. That has not been mentioned yet. A RAW file is intentionally dull until processed because it is well, raw, as in 'uncooked', so it it needs to be 'cooked' or 'processed' to become a true picture. Perhaps the OP...

    GPU Acceleration

    Now that recommended or actually useful graphics cards are becoming affordable, I just picked up a Asus GTX 1060 6GB card for my five year old PC. It seems faster although I am not sure if I am imagining things or not. PC RAM usage, of which I only have 16GB, also seems lower. Has anyone...

    Performance of LR 6/CC with Hardware acceleration

    So how is everyone finding GPU acceleration now? I just picked up a GTX1060 6GB for my five year old PC, and I *think* it is faster. If I am not mistaken, PC RAM usage is much less, which may help speed it up as I only have 16GB RAM which is always full when using Lightroom even after closing...

    Focus point in LRCC ?

    Does DNG strip raw files of specifically info like that Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    Focus point in LRCC ?

    Same here.. I focus on the point then compose.. Only gets tricky if metering and focal points differ. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    Focus point in LRCC ?

    This always seemed odd to me too.. I convert everything to DNG so I assume this would be lost though. What camera or RAW files are you using? Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    HDR Efex pro3 help with saaving

    Why is the option to set white balance only applicable to DNG and not TIFF. Unless I read it wrong and there really is no difference or advantage. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    HDR Efex pro3 help with saaving

    So white balance is the only advantage of DNG output over TIFF? I didn't know know parametric processing was applied to all files in Lightroom. Even TIFF. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    HDR Efex pro3 help with saaving

    Is there any technical advantage to a DNG output rather than TIFF? Parametric editing perhaps? Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    HDR Efex pro3 help with saaving

    DNG is a negative, or input. TIFF is a print, or output. So the output will always be something like TIFF. What's the problem with TIFF? Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    NIK Collection

    Anyone know if HDR workflow can be optimised? Presently I need to pre process each bracketed image individually eg RAW pre sharpener.. You can't batch pre-process with Nik. Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    NIK Collection

    I really wish this forum had an edit post function (unless I'm missing it).. So working through my first actual workflow now - I am selecting ProPhoto colourspace and 16bit / Edit copy with LR adjustments (latter only option available). I assume that's right.

    NIK Collection

    wow I have been reading up on Nik. ColourFX alone took me an hour to work through the intro on the DXO site. I can see why this was so popular for so long - it would just radically transform and expedite workflow for many people. E.g wedding photographers - it seems to be targetted at a...

    What do you mean decisions? So you bought Nik and it's working fine for you? Sent from my SM-G965F using Tapatalk

    NIK Collection

    Loving it so far, I can see why the B&W module is so highly regarded. And yes it has colour filters now too. BTW the discount code valid until tomorrow (15th October) is NIK-COLLECTION-10-2018 - so for anyone thinking about buying it USD$10 may be an enticement.

    NIK Collection

    Well it seems Nik is generally still well regarded and LR alternatives are generally hit and miss and LR is still well regarded, so a USD$10 came through in my email so I just took it and bought it.. Will see what happens.

    NIK Collection

    The reference is that they declared themselves bankrupt. Which means that people are unlikely to believe anything that a bankrupt company says, whatever the truth. The complete absence of any proof of life has not helped. You nailed it... Agreed.. LR has HDR and now creative profiles so...
