    Phocus 3.4

    I am finding that the new recovery algorithm in Phocus 3.4 that was just released is significantly improved. I think now I don't need to edit in two places (Phocus and Lightroom Classic). What is your experience with Phocus 3.4?

    I tested it out this morning on some landscape images and the new updates are very good. I think I will be working up my Hasselblad images now in Phocus instead of in Lightroom. The recovery and shadow fill sliders are massively improved!

    Cheers, Michael

    It seems the files can now cook the full 15 stops of DR especially in the highlights when there is a soft cast of light flooding the image. I’ve found that recovering the blown areas with the slider first then adjusting the upper right histogram slider slightly and then pulling the recovery slider back towards the left works best.Name:  DF39CE67-3185-4CD5-83D2-A6F394939297.jpeg
