DXO update

Just updated my DXO photolab elite to photolab elite 2. (£52. just released)
The updates are subtle with improved clear view and colour rendering.
I have checked some of my images and there are improvements to be made albeit subtle ones.
I have not had time to delve in deeply but will be "playing" today to see what they have done.
So far it looks worth the cost of the update.

Re: DXO update

Hi Gandalf, just run a set of car images through the new program, amazing the extra detail I recovered transformed the images.
The new version of clearview works well to recover reflections and the curves seem more subtle, it has transformed some of the images from O.K to great (I think) well worth the money, I thought the mark 1 was good but this is well ahead.
Charles.

Agree Charles. Very happy with the test images I ran through it.

Re: DXO update

Thanks for the heads up. For some reason, DXO didn't seem to inform me of this update so thanks for doing their job . I've just installed the new version and I'll see how it compares. Good to note that they leave the old version on, just in case!

Re: DXO update

I think it is well worth it Stephen, not just the detail recovery but it loads faster, (despite being a bigger program).
One thing I have noticed, is the clearview plus gives more detail in the highlights but as a result the colours seem to be more saturated,, so some images may need reducing a bit.
I have re done some 80 images and all but a few are better for detail and contrast, the others showed no difference.
I had a similar "no notice of a new version" on the optics pro 11 it was Colin who told me.
The downloading was less complicated too, the first version went to "downloads" and had to be installed from there, this just downloaded and ran.
I have noticed every download from them leaves a "temporary file" that cant be cleaned off.
Have fun, hope you find it worth it as well.
Charles.

I got an e-mail in to-day directing me to this DXO information.

Re: DXO update

Charles, Got it this afternoon. I have had a quick play with images that I had previously worked upon and thought they were perfect but I was really surprised about the amount of improvement it had made. I found the "Clear view plus" as thy now call it is very much improved before it was very severe on the adjustment now more gentle alterations. Colour, sharpness and everything are all improved. The big difference is the library section trying to find pictures will take a bit of learning and getting used to. Probably more on the DXO academy. It is well worth the buy. I notice it did not overwrite the old version so we now have both, although I don't think I will be using the old version when I have the new.

Colin.

Re: DXO update

I've always been impressed with DXO as a raw editor, but like Charles and Colin I have been surprised at how much extra detail can be brought out in tricky photos - and how easily - compared with the previous version. Assuming this link to Google street view works, you should see on the corner of a building a black cat up the wall. I have a photograph of that cat, back lit on a bright day, and I could recover all the detail in the cat with no difficulty (or halos) at all.

If the link doesn't work, it's near the Royal Albion Hotel, on Old Steine.
