I downloaded the trial version of the latest DXO Optics Pro Raw converter, and was beginning to understand how to use it. In fact it did well with my Canon 1DII pix, and with the G9 images at high ISO, the results were better than anything I have got from ACR, Noise Ninja or DFine2.
I ran into trouble with the pallettes (if that is the correct term). I closed some of them such as Light, Color, Histogram, and My Pallettes, or whatever they're called. Now, even if I go into the menu and check them all, or press Ctrl F9, I can't get them back. I also tried clicking on the icons of the pallettes that appear at the top right of the Prepare screen, but they don't reappear except for Geometry, Details, and one of the others.
In desperation, I deinstalled the program and reinstalled it, but no change. Any ideas?
