  • Olympus Workspace - Replacement for OV3

    Coming soon: Olympus Workspace editing software, the replacement for Olympus Viewer 3.

    I'll be interested to see how this compares to Lightroom.

    They need to provide a manual, else it will be as worthless as OV3 is to me.

      Fingers crossed it will be noticeably faster.
      I tried to use OV3 when I first started using RAW but it is so glacial at making any change I gave up.


      I use OV3 for copying from the camera - and updating when there are firmware things - but after that I import into Lightroom and work in there.

      It would be really nice if Workspace were a real tool which I could use on my laptop when I'm travelling.

        OV3 is my first port of call, then into PSE12 if I need to do any mask editing. The de-haze and clarity options look like a useful addition.

            According to Robin Wong, it is faster. Per above, hopefully with other much needed features like Clarity. I’ve had some great photos out of OV3 but the process is slow:

            - Raw correction, tone and flatfish contrast in OV3 (sloooooow)
            - Export to 16 bit TIFF
            - Finish in Lightroom (Clarity), then Photoshop (levels, final sharpening and finishing touches).

            Edit: From this link: http://app.olympus-imaging.com/olympusworkspace/en/

            Rotate/reverse, trimming/tilt correction, exposure compensation, white balance, colour correction (colour saturation, brightness, hue), Clarity, Dehaze, tone curve (level correction), Highlight & Shadow, contrast, colour saturation, tone correction, Art Filter, colour filters, shading correction, distortion correction, Fisheye Compensation, Keystone Compensation, sharpness, unsharp mask, red eye correction, video editing (combine, cut, extract).

                  Just downloaded it, but it's DOA for me. Hangs whenever I browse into a directory with any images in it. Sits there consuming 25% CPU (1 core) and can only be killed by going into task manager. Not a good start! 64-bit Windows.

                    Seems I'm just impatient. I waited about 10 mins and it eventually responded. It found 4 images. Maybe it was making its image database? I've got a modern laptop - Microsoft Surface Book 2 - i7 @ 2.5GHz and an SSD.

                      In case anyone has a use for OV3 it's worth noting it may be disappearing quite soon!

                          Re: Olympus Workspace - Replacement for OV3

                          I downloaded and installed Workspace.
                          however my concern is that it is asking one to register to the Olympus site, however it is a different setup to the previous place I had registered to and listed all my Olympus equipment.
                          It appears as if I have to regregister my kit again along with the serial numbers.

                          Anyone else experienced the change of location for registering their Oly kit.

                            Bought a TG-4 in early 2017 and the "new" site already had that registered, so maybe it was a long time ago for the last camera purchase ?

                              Just installed on my laptop and it works a lot quicker than OV3...
