Hi, I’ve just switched from Lightroom to DxO and I’m loving the results so far. I should of switched sooner.
I have a few questions:
In the program settings you can chose the location of the DxO Database. You can also choose to save correction settings in sidecar files, and load correction settings from sidecar files too.
If my understanding is correct that then means correction settings can be stored in both the database (like how it’s done in Lightroom), and also in the sidecar files too. Does DxO store the correction settings for images in both the database and the sidecar files at the same time or only 1 or the other?
If DxO stores correction settings in both the database and the sidecar files at the same time then i need to ask this question too: From time to time after previously doing some editing i might copy an original image file with its sidecar file from my 1st computer to my 2nd computer (at a different location) work on it some more on that 2nd computer and then copy the original image file with its sidecar file back to my first computer. That would then mean on the first computer there would be a conflict between the correction settings in its database and the newer sidecar file. Which one would then take precedence, the older database correction settings or the newer sidecar settings?
