  1. This is a deal breaker for me. If I continually have to scroll up and down to find the panel I want to work with it'll take me four or five times longer to process a raw file - and I'm not prepared to waste that time.

    Locked Transparency

    That explains it then. Thanks.

    Already tried all that to no avail, but thanks anyway.

    Ah, ok thanks.
  5. I'm trying to use the Topaz Remask plugin, and I get the error message: "Transparency is Locked. Please unclock the transparency". Note the incorrect spelling of unlock is yours not mine! Have searched Help and this forum but can't find anything.

    Welcome to the pedants club!

    export files DPI means nothing

    I don't suppose it matters at all, except perhaps to the pedants among us. I only entered this discussion because of the incorrect and potentially misleading (in my opinion) comments and answers given to the OP. The bottom line is that the PPI you set in a document simply determines the size of the print, and is used as input by the printer for that purpose only. The DPI (printer output) determines the quality of that print and is set by the printer depending on the quality setting you choose - high quality will get a high DPI and draft will get a low one, with various settings in between, and it has no relationship whatsoever to the PPI.

    It doesn't matter whether you're printing or exporting - it's PPI in both cases. I don't know what Photoshop called it before Adobe, but they call it PPI now. http://www.andrewdaceyphotography.com/articles/dpi/ https://99designs.co.uk/blog/tips-en-gb/ppi-vs-dpi-whats-the-difference/?lang=en-gb?lang=en-gb https://imagescience.com.au/knowledge/the-difference-between-ppi-and-dpi

    Wouldn't it be better if it said PPI then?

    While DPI and PPI are often used interchangeably, they are NOT the same. Pixels per inch is self evident but DPI refers to the number of dots of ink output by a printer, and they typically output four to eight dots per pixel (in each dimension). So, if you're printing at 300 PPI you're also printing at 1200 - 2400 DPI. Serif really should change the labels in their software to PPI - a la Photoshop et al.

    I sometimes used to have the feeling that there were only Dan and I who bothered with LAB (and I have to admit that most of his stuff goes way over my head) so it's nice to see others are interested too. Glad to have been of assistance.
  12. I have Panasonic G3 and G6, and Designer doesn't recognise images from either of them. I didn't really expect it to, with it not being a photo processor, until I read your post, but now I'm wondering whether it ought to?

    If you want to learn more about LAB check out Dan Margulis. He's written books and has lots of tutorials on Youtube.
  14. Hi MEB, I was getting the message "error loading brushes" when trying to import them. I just tried switching to the Pixel Persona first and they imported fine. Sorry for the confusion - I see I have lots to learn here!
  15. I'm getting an error even when using this method.
