Re: DxO Optics Pro 6

No doubt I will trip over this one tonight. I downloaded the free trial DxO this morning..

However - if you equip your CS3 for raw you do it by installing a raw processing plugin. I guess this is the same with Lightroom. So when you click on an ORF it opens (in this case) ACR which sits as a window on top of CS3, and it is ACR that opens the raw file. When you have finished ACR closes and the image is passed seamlessly to CS3.

So surely you would need a DxO "plugin" for adobe to have it work seamlessly, rather than a stand alone DxO app. Somehow I don't think this can be done.. Prove me wrong :-)


Edit.. Perhaps this is the subtle difference between an "external editor" and an "importing plugin" ??
Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.
