Been spending a lot of time testing DXO Photolab I do like it but it’s not quite getting me to what I get in other programs or my old version of LR.
So my ?s is what will the next version offer for updates.
Right now it is no faster than my old Lightroom V6 but other programs I am testing are much faster including the newer Lightroom classic. For loading images going one to the next and doing 100% zoom-ins. This is why i am looking at other programs for a faster workflow.
I can not match the colors I get from my old Lightroom. I just spent around 6 hours editing images today and when i bring them up next to my old edits in lightroom I am just not getting the same better colors its close but just not their.
Will the next version be faster ? and have better colors.
Will you be adding rollover previews of the presets?.
And a better crop tool that includes the strate tool by just dragging the corner like many other programs. This drives me crazy using the strate tool over and over. grab one end and move it up then grab the other end and move it up. We shoot on the beach and just about every photo I need to have some horizon fixing.
Lut support as well we are going to start making some of our own LUTs to use.
For now, I think I am going to have to go with the Lightroom month to month plan as that is now much faster than the old V6 version I have been using.
I like DXO and its features and interface would for sure give it another try when it has new updates faster and better color and the crop/starte area re-done.
Here s a few images I edited in it today testing. We work on the beach shooting all the time.
