I’m trying to understand Photolab’s behavior here. When I use “Export to Lightroom” it sends the DNG to Lightroom Classic. That same DNG appears then appears in the Photolab image panel and folder tree. But Lightroom also creates a time-stamped DXO Photolab collection with each import, which is more than a bit irritating as they multiply.
Using “Export to application” and directing it to Lightroom eliminates the creation of the collection. But for some reason it also makes a duplicate DNG (DxO_2.dng) that appears in Photolab (but not Lightroom, because that duplicate hasn’t been imported). This gets confusing, as as well as unnecessarily taking up space.
Why does Photolab do this, and is there any way to stop it? Using v.5.6.1 in Windows 10.
