DSC 3286 DxO 400x618 More Liv in the New Year

To get the new year off to a great start here are some new photos of Liv Sage from a shoot late last year.

For the photo folk seeing this, these are my second attempt to edit files using DxO Optics Pro. I bought it on sale a couple days ago to see if it will work as a replacement raw converter and editor to get me away from being dependent on Adobe. I have Photoshop CS6 and refuse to be forced into renting my software from Adobe in their new system of directly tapping our wallets every month. I’m fairly impressed with DxO and am thinking it might be the solution I’ve been looking for. It sure is one hell of a lot easier to work with than Lightroom, which I hate with a passion. Given that I’m just getting started with DxO I’m sure these files are not as good as I can get from the software, but working in DxO is easy and simple and the results seem to be better with much less sweat in the process.

One thing I love about Liv…one of a very great many things…is that she laughs at my hopelessly bad jokes. As you can see…

Wishing you all a healthy, happy, peaceful 2016.

    hi Dave. Seasons greetings, re yr comment on the use of CS6 with a monthy rental. i also hav the same issue and have been looking at options. i found that if you use a Macbook then you can infact use the Hasselblad Phocus software as a raw convertor and it also a processor with lots of adjutments. while quite flexable and reasonably complex its easily learnable. the problem is that is will open non Hasselblad raw files only on a Mac and not a PC. Quite nice.another free convertor is RRP which is simple and easy to use and opens al file raw formats.again only for Mac.This is only a RAW convertor..there is a somewhat new software that is much talked about called Affinity photo. its a one time payment for about 36 pds stg and from what i hav read quite impressive. you want to check all these out. infact pls post your comments on yr findings for the benifit of all of us.

    regards – ashok /india
