I have recently received advertising emails from DxO trying to tempt me to take advantage of the soon-to-expire offer on Nik Collection 4. This is rather annoying because I have posted a question recently here about the compatibility of the updated software with my existing version of Photoshop Elements, and received no reply so far, and so will miss the offer (if indeed the program were to prove compatible). I note too, that there seem to be several queries posted in the Nik section of the forum to which no response has been made.
I realise that this forum is largely the work of users, who kindly share their knowledge and experience of DxO software, and clearly my question may well not be one to which other users here can furnish an answer. That is entirely understandable and my comments here are certainly not intended as criticism of other forum members. However, surely someone at DxO could quite easily provide an authoritative answer? Do staff at DxO not monitor content here? I note that on the user forum of Affinity Photo it seems to be normal practice for Affinity staff members to answer questions as well as users, but then Affinity does seem to be a rather unusual company, not least because it seems willing to provide substantial updates without extra cost.
