Re: DxO Labs Bankruptcy Procedure Won't Affect Customers & New Software Updates Are C

I'll have to see the Nik offering before saying if I'll buy it. Feels cruddy having already paid top dollar for a 'lifetime' (of the company's interest in supporting it apparently) license.

Still I know DXO needs to pay it's developers and google. A lot may hinge on whether my existing presets still work or can be updated to work with the new version.. I have a lot of hand made HDR Efex 2 presets that are my 'go to' workflow. I bought aurora HDR from macphun/Skylum... and can't get into it, I always go back to HDR Efex 2.

Re: DxO Labs Bankruptcy Procedure Won't Affect Customers & New Software Updates Are C

I got one too Gandalf, just downloaded it using my elements 18 as "host".
I can't comment if it is different to the previous version, ( didn't have it) but my first "play" on some images is very good and has promise, what took ages before is fast with the Nik filters and effects.
Got to go to play more with it.

Charles: Can the DxO Nik Collection be used as a 'Standalone' or only as 'plugins?' The 'old' collection could be either but I see no mention of standalone in DxO's blurb.

Thanks for that. I'm afraid I won't be using the DxO Nik version until they sort out the installer for MacOS - lots of people complaining (myself included) about this and various other issues (see DxO forum)


*Be aware that if you have the old Google/Nik version DxO version overwrites it and when the trial period for the DxO version expires you lose your original.*



DxO support though quick to respond have not given me much hope. I have no intention to install a couple of plugins as a superuser (root directory mode) on my Mac.

Hi Hal I was under the impression DXO had sorted the Mac problems (Mac 10.13 OS).
I must admit having played with the Nik as a plug in to my Elements 18 I am quite impressed.

Clearly not Charles. Glad you are not having any probs with Photoshop Elements. There are problems with Photoshop and Lightroom users.

Re: DxO Labs Bankruptcy Procedure Won't Affect Customers & New Software Updates Are C

I purchased the NIK software from DXOLAB and downloaded and it automatically went into my CS6 and Bridge but not to DXOLAB. I sent them a support ticket and they replied that it does not go into DXOLAB and there is no way of getting it in, which I understood from their description that it was an extra for the DXOLAB which is disappointing. However I can only use it in my CS6 as a plugin. That is OK but not really what I wanted. I have not tried it out yet so can't comment.
Colin.

Re: DxO Labs Bankruptcy Procedure Won't Affect Customers & New Software Updates Are C

I replied to the DXO support ticket saying I was disappointed as I got the impression from their advertising it would be part of DXOLAB and as DXOLAB was so good I hardly used CS6 very much except for a few tweaks. They replied they were sorry about that and would pass on my comments but said the NIK could be used as a standalone program if I so wished. But I am happy enough to use it in CS6.
