Sigma Photo Pro 5.4.1 (SPP) for OS X Fixes Crash Problem

About two months ago I reported on the crashing problem with Sigma Photo Pro software 5.3 (and 5.4). It made the software literally unusable on my 6-core and 12-core Mac Pros, and my 4-core laptops crashes regularly. I provided a complete thread dump to Sigma and worked with them on the issue.

Remaining issues

The are many remaining usability issues. Here is just a small sampling:

  • SPP 5.4.1 cannot display color properly, which makes it really difficult to gauge any kind of adjustments.
  • SPP insists on applying noise reduction settings for each and every image; this cannot be disabled so one has to open it for every image and disable it manually. After 5 images, this gets old. After 100, infuriating.
  • Many areas of the user interface remain litterally unreadable due to the tiny dark gray type on a darker gray background.
  • No quick way to zoom to 100%. No background processing once the button is clicked for actual size; one is forced to wait (for a current image at least there is absolutely no reason the software can’t work in the background on the current image, or maybe even all visible images).
