One last question - are you doing your Topaz work in CC PhotoShop 15 or are using Topaz Fusion Express to do it directly in LR?The test failed when going from Dev to Topaz and back to LR. Again, the images show adjustments in the Gallery module, but not in the Dev module. This was not the case prior to the upgrade. Any suggestions?
I use Topaz photoFXlab (PFL) and not Fusion Express (FE). FE is limited to one plug-in at a time whereas PFL allows access to all of the Topaz plugins and layer masking adjustments. FE does work (just checked), but limits my workflow too much, thus the reason for purchasing PFL.One last question - are you doing your Topaz work in CC PhotoShop 15 or are using Topaz Fusion Express to do it directly in LR?
Try the other.
Additional External Editor set as preset photoFXlab (64 bit);Also, check your "external edit " preferences. Send a 16 bit tiff over to Photoshop. You should get a tiff back. That works well on my Windows system.
That is all correct, Jim.So just to make sure I've got this right, if you edit in PS CC2015 or Topaz using FE then everything works as expected. But if you Edit in Topaz using PEL then you get the issue of Lightroom adjustments not showing on the Tiff in the Develop Module, but they do show in the Library Module. Restarting Lightroom then allows the adjustments to be seen in Develop.
Have I got anything wrong there, as I want to make sure Adobe get the full picture (bad pun not intended)?
No Jim, I do not have "Automatically write changes into XMP" enabled; never have.Thanks. One more question....do you have "Automatically write changes into XMP" enabled in your catalog settings? If you do, have you tried turning it off, restarting Lightroom, then try the Edit in Topaz using PEL again.
Active D-Lighting makes photo site micro adjustments to the highlight and shadows. The micro adjustments are stored in the Mfgs Notes Section of the EXIF. The in camera software reads these adjustments and adjust the shadows and highlights accordingly to produce the JPEG that you see on the camera back and in the JPEG thumbnail that is included with the RAW data. CNX2/NX-D also read these micro adjustments and can produce a file similar to the in camera JPEG. No app besides those develop by Nikon reads this extra information. If you take a consensus of most Nikon RAW shooters, even those that do not use Adobe products, the recommendation is to turn this off if you are shooting RAW (even for NX-D).Yes ...active d lighting was enabled. I have shot with it enabled through the earlier versions of LR and never had that happen. I nearly always use it for shooting equestrian sports ...bright sun, dark horses etc.
Is this something they are going to fix? ...
