Getting started with Bibble Labs

I’ve been using Bibble Labs Pro for a few months now to process my RAW files but I know I’m not using it to it’s fullest potential.

I should have looked around the Bibble website because their learning center has a number of videos to help the Bibble newbie!

Things I don’t like:

  • I can’t believe there’s still no single-step undo in Bibble. It’s either CTRL-R to reset the image settings back to the RAW format, or there’s an awful workaround by copy/pasting the whole image before major actions.
  • Bibble crashes. It usually only happens when saving an image. I have noticed that it happens most often when I change virtual desktop so there’s probably a bug there somewhere.

Despite those misgivings, it’s still worth looking at the trial version.

    Do you think its good, someone offered it to me. As I haven’t taken raw pics I don’t know how good the difference is. I might get it and just mess about for a while.

    Raw is worth it in difficult conditions. You know, when the sky is completely white even though your eyes saw fluffy clouds in a blue background? You’ll be able to recover more of that data using a RAW file.

    Even if you don’t shoot RAW, it’s probably worth downloading the trial version because many of the functions work well with Jpeg files too! (No, I’m not affiliated with Bibble! I paid for my own copy!)

    Ah, Bibble crashes.
    One reason why I haven’t bought it yet was that the trial version kept crashing and producing kernel panics (!!!) on my G4… (back to DPP for me)

    Damn, sorry to hear it keeps crashing for you Michel! Glad you could try the trial version at least. From the support forums it seems there are a lot of issues with it unfortunately. I haven’t had a crash in several days now, so hopefully I’ve hit a sweet spot in terms of configuration!

    I watched a few more of the videos last night and tried the heal/path tool. It works very well!

    One more page to remember – Using hot keys is a list of the hotkeys Bibble uses.

    Actually, I couldn’t try the trial version at all. Everytime I launched it, it would bring OSX down and force me to reboot. :(
