QImage Software For Printing

QImage Software For Printing

Some years ago, and even before the beginning of the Adobe Lightroom era, I used the Windows QImage software for my prints on a LargeFormat inkjet printer, more precisely the HP Z3100 model. Even then, I regretted that this software was not...

    Capture One’s NEW License Options (Terrible)
    on: January 21, 2023 at 5:51 am

    … as far as I know DXO Pure RAW2 uses the same “engine” as DXO Photolab 6.

    So who has the latter can derive the results there.

    I have seen that DXO Photolab 6 has a PlugIn installed in LRC, but have not yet looked at the integration in more detail.

    That DXO Photolab is a very good RAW converter, however, has undoubtedly been the case for years. With version 6, a larger working color space is now also served.

    Hi Kevin,

    Just in case you would want to migrate your C1 catalogs to LR, this new software could help :

    EN – Avalanche Lightroom

    …that is interesting.

    I curious… does anyone offer a migration path from CO to their own software?

    Cheers,

    … not that I know of. So I went back to my 2018 LRC DB and re-imported everything since then.

    Of course, this means I have losses, since I not infrequently develop photos with C1 from years before 2018. But the most important, processed images have been written to a TIF file (with multiple layers) anyway.

    But no doubt one has again extra work. On the other hand, however, just the high integration of the LRC modules, the good integration of many plug-ins and the manifold DAM functions makes a lot easier and faster.

    With regard to my many Fuji X-files of the last years, I have switched on the Iridient X-Transformer for LRC, because in my opinion C1 is better in the development of Fuji RAW files. In terms of other RAW formats, I don’t see any significant differences. In my opinion, both products have increasingly converged in recent years.

    Hello Kevin,

    the thoughts make themselves at present some, alone in my environment I know three which are shortly before the jump with C1 and these are all users of many years.

    After my switch to digital photography in 2003 and when the millennium was still young, I attended one of the C1 training courses held by Renate Lange at PhaseOne in Cologne. Since then I have actually always used the RAW converter, even when Adobe launched LR, a highly integrated system that had extensive DAM features on board. In 2018 I started an attempt to switch completely to the product with the advanced DAM features of C1. Unfortunately, this only worked to a limited extent, since on the one hand the DAM functions are still inferior to those of LRC and on the other hand I had serious problems with the C1 database twice, which manifested itself in such a way that it was no longer possible to import photos. In addition, there was a problem with the Wacom tablet under macOS on my MacMini i7, which was not solvable but also only occurred with C1. I have reported about it sufficiently. When then still the message of the company Capture One came that the license model will change and one is more or less forced to go into the subscription, that was for me a kind of caesura and the decision matured quickly for various reasons to switch back to LRC, to make things easier for me in many places, to be able to use more plug-ins and to let C1 expire with the v23.

    On top, LRC has also evolved considerably and among other things the masking functions have evolved considerably. So I recently made the re-switch and rebuilt back to my 2018 LRC database and have since re-imported everything I have photographed since then.

    Currently I’m looking for and editing photos for a book and have gotten back into LRC mode quite nicely, although I still find some things better implemented in the C1 RAW converter at the user interface.

    If I have previously allowed myself the luxury of using several RAW converters in parallel and these also according to their strengths here and there to use again and again, I go from it now, because with that with several subscriptions in parallel then also too expensive and because the cost-benefit ratio is then simply no longer right for me.

    Hello Mike,

    I did the same test with a handful of photos and got the same result.

    Indeed a good workflow to finally solve the problem :).
