I evaluate AP 1.7 as a replacement for Lightroom but run in some very basic problems with raw file development.
1. When I develop one single raw file (DNG from Lightroom) AP writes a huge file (121MB versus 19MB original). This is no good. Is there a way to save the adjustments done in a fair way without using the alternative formats like tif, jpg etc. ?
2. I want to develop several raw files (DNG from Lightroom) at once with a batch process and saving them in jpg or tif for further processing. However, I do not manage to apply the individually made macro in Photo Persona to process the RAW files in Photo Develop, although I can select the macro. Possibly the macros are not compatible? How can I process several raw files the same way?
3. Is it still not possible in AP to save adjustments made in single raw files in an undestructive way?
Thank you for your helpful answers.
