    The rotation will be fixed in the next release (as answered by Brian himself).

    Try using LOW instead of Default for your high ISO images. The noise will be much better and you’ll still get a sharper image than Lr.

    What would make this tool almost perfect is if we could set the settings based on ISO. Say anything greater or equal to ISO 1600 could automatically use the LOW setting, anything below 1600 could use the Default setting.
    That way, batch processing would work well.

      I suggest sharpening should be set at ‘none’ it gives the best high iso result for me anyway. I can always sharpen it later.

      If you are using LIghtroom, you can sort the images in Library: Metadata > ISO and then batch each group with Iridient from within LR. Not quite as elegant as automation, but it works!.

    Nice post, Mauricio. $30 seems like a bargain and I really appreciate the fact that those using an LR workflow can maintain it. (One small note: You are using the word “notoriously” when I think you want to use the word “noticeably”. No big deal.)

      Robert, I e-mailed the developer as I am interested in this too and the launch is imminent. I have the site bookmarked and check every day as I am really impressed by the MAC full version. I think it will be coming out as a Beta 2 version when they update the PC one.

    Really useful review Mauricio as I am now looking at using this in my workflow as a landscaper once the MAC version is released. Much appreciated.

      Thank you David. I’m waiting for the Mac version too but, meanwhile, I’m using the Windows version.

    To be honest, I downloaded the released Mac version and tried with a few different rafs. Set the sharpening to none, and sharpened both images, the original and the watermarked one with the same settings in LR…Looking at 50% and 100% I can barely tell them apart…it seems to me the only real world difference is that you can presharpen your Raf with IXT, but that’s all it’s really doing…

    I realize I am getting to your very detailed article late. I do own Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop and Mobile as well as Alien Skin X3 and a few others. Buying software has become as complicated as buying a camera bag. Once you own a lot of them it becomes difficult to decide which to use.

    That said I also have Xtransformer and I do notice the difference in the files. I do not shoot landscape or at least almost never but do shoot product, people, buildings, life. The current version of Transformer for the Mac produces some awfully large files and even though I have sufficient storage the program uses a lot of resources.

    As this is now June of 2018, a year and half after your article, where are you with the program now and how well is it fitting into your workflow in regards to time spent and quality of image.

    Thanks,

    Elliot.
