Hi Larry, I am a little bit lost with this new announcement.I have a photolab 2.3 (just did the update) and reading the publication I understood the Nick Collection is embedded in Photolab. Does it mean that I will also have access to nick collection with my photolab Elite licence ?
Their argument about being able to use the Nik collection on raw files is based on the fact that they are including Photolab Essential as part of the Nik collection now, and Photolab, of course, has local adjustments based on U point technology. So it is a big stretch when they say the Nik collection now uses U point technology on raw files. My concern is that many will see this as deceptive advertising, especially those who have no intention of using PhotoLab.
The program also hijacks your Lightroom collections. It makes a new DxO PureRAW 2 collection set and a new collection for each image. There was no mention of this in the saving options and no obvious way to disable this feature.
