SD Clone and Paragon extFS for Mac

I am interested in SD Clone for making images of Raspberry Pi installations (educational stuff) and very much like its Shrink function. At first glance however it did not seem to work, but then I realised that Paragon extFS for Mac (which I use to write directly to config files on the Raspberry Pi DS cards, is also tying up the SD card. Trying to figure out a practical work process, but suggestions are welcome…

How did it go? did you get it to work like you expected?
