I just did a search on Google and came across this thread. Seems the old DxO Mac version had a “color editor” tool. It wasn’t a U-Point type of feature. You chose a color anywhere in the image and it would select that color across the entire image. You can use controls to determine the range of hue and tone “around” the color you picked, and adjust hue, saturation and luminosity.If I understand your question correctly, yes, with control points. Both in DXO-PL on a Raw file, or in most of the NIK tools (on jpgs or tiffs).
Which is the main reason I prefer it to LR.DXO's "DAM" is fairly rudimentary and uses the computer's file system, rather than its own library.
Agreed.Having said that, I believe only a very, very small percentage of even avid photographers actually require a database to quickly and easily find their images.
If you are looking for Adobe alternatives, Capture One has lots of videos on how to use the tools within the package and how to use layers and layer masks for more creative or precise editing.thanks, I had downloaded PL-2 and found it pretty confusing for an old guy like me. So that was an hour well spent, and I am now more confident with PL-2. While I will still use ACR for my bread and butter stuff - for the more arty pics, PL-2 could be the way to go
