NIK Sharpener Pro 3: RAW Presharpener

Recommended Posts

As an experiment I tried opening a copy of a RAW file directly with the NIK RAW PreSharpener.

Right click on the RAW file, Open with, and then navigate to the SHP3RPS executable (64bit Windows).

It all seemed to work fine until I tried to save the file. The save errored and said it would attempt to restore the original.

Has anyone else tried this and managed to get the save to work?

It would appear that the problem is that the SHP3RPS executable does not have a Save As or Export option. It simply tries to save over the existing file. And since the existing file is a RAW file, it cannot. This is a problem that you need to raise with DxO rather than Affinity. You can load the raw file into Affinity Photo and apply the sharpener to the freshly developed raw file and it works fine, and saves as .afphoto or exports it as whatever you want.

(Note that I would not recommend applying a sharpener, even a pre-sharpener, if you need to denoise, with DFine or other. Do this first.)
