My thoughts after a few days using PhotoLab for a few days
Windows 10 system, I7, SSD, 16 GB RAM
Nikon D300 camera
Nikon D850 camera
Nikon Lenses 35mm f1.8, 50mm f1.8, 85mm f1.8, 105mm f2.8 Macro
Sigma 150-500mm lens
No clone tool - Or am I missing something?
the heal brush works great most of the time but there
are times when a clone tool would be best.
The crop tool always defaults to PRESERVE ASPECT RATIO
I lot of the time I want unconstrained.
Can I change this default behaviour?
It would be nice If It just remembered the last setting and/or the default action was
settable In the preference area.
One click export to export using the last recipes settings (How about Ctrl + E)
Most of the times the settings I use are the same
So if there was a button to just export the Image
Based on the last Images export settings that would be great.
In a palette
A more obvious delimiter between the separate sections in the same palette.
when I set a TAG (picked unpicked)
Why do some of the keyboard short cuts (7, 8, 9, p, x, u) only work in full screen mode?
Why can’t also work in the organize and customize mode as well?
Why can’t I rate the Images (0-5) in the organiser and customise tabs?
- the dxo optics module symbol (little camera Icon) In the thumbnail In the film strip Is
not showing for my Nikon D850 Images, the EXIF Info panel Is showing the camera
and lens used but the camera Icon Is not displayed In the filmstrip thumbnails
to state that Image correction has been applied.
when I compare the corrected preview Image to the un-corrected Image, you can see
the module is working as the Images change, you can see the distortion in the un-corrected Image.
The Icon is showing for my D300 camera.
Why can’t the sidecar files be saved in a sub-directory and not mixed In with the Images.
Possible make this user configurable in the preference section so users can
choose they preferred way of working.
I can’t find any xmp sidecar files on my computer.
The option is ticked in preferences
But it also talks about sidecar files being .dop files, which I can find.
Why is there no Indication (an Icon) in the filmstrip thumbnails to show that an Image has
When I select crop mode, the handles to grab at the corners are just outside the viewing area.
I have to zoom the Image In a bit to grab a handle.
On top of the filmstrip It tell you how many of the Images have been selected e.g. 1/68
It would be helpful If It could indicate where you on in the filmstrip e.g. Image 23/68
Then you would know if you were a quarter, a half, etc the way through your Images.
