Processing Options – DxO FilmPack

I recently downloaded DxO Optics Pro 9 to see how it compared as a RAW processor with Lightroom and Aperture, they also make a couple of other interesting products and I have been playing with the DxO FilmPack as well. It provides excellent reproductions of a wide variety of film looks and plenty of control to tweak them as well. I went back to some shots I took a few months ago to see how they would work out. I liked the polaroid touch and some of the B&W options as well.

New SmugMug Update

A quick update, I believe I have fixed all the issues I currently know of and there is a new beta available. This fixes crashes when creating galleries and galleries not being available for selection in the drop downs. If there are any other issues please let me know. I will release an official version in a few days after some more testing.


SmuginProForAperture Update

Feeling a bit under the weather this week, not much photography unfortunately. A quick update on the current state of my Aperture export plugin SmuginProForAperture is all I have!

I am currently in the process of testing a new update which supports multiple accounts, I have released the first beta and another should be out this week with a few tweaks. If anyone wants to give it a go and send me some feedback that would be appreciated. If I feel a bit more alive later this weekend I’ll try and get a more interesting post up!

Oh, I did get a new soft box and grid to play with, seems to work well but I need to feel more like playing with it to work out how to use it properly.

SmuginProForAperture 1.5.2 Released

After a few last minute issues my Aperture to SmugMug export plugins have been updated. This should have been a plain old 1.5 release but issues with the server API resulted in a quick update to back out some changes, unfortunately I missed a bug in my haste to get something out. Apologies to anyone who had issues, everything should be working now. If not please take the time to let me know.

You can get details of the Aperture plugins on my nzwidgets website. The main changes are:

  • Updated to use Oauth authentication.
  • Added a new option to automatically resize very large images.
  • Bug fixes.

iPhoto users have not been forgotten, version 1.1.2 of SmuginForiPhoto has also been released.

  • Updated to use Oauth authentication.
  • Reduced size of window for use on MacBook Air.
  • Bug fixes.
