Thread: RAW question
11-17-2006, 07:43 PM #1
A simple question
When you use a RAW converter, what is the aim?
In PS, you can take the RAW image and then put layers on it, then convert it into another file format.
I read DPP is also a RAW converter (and for some people more pleasing than PS). But DPP has a limited number of functions compared to PS.
So does that mean that editing a photo in DPP is a 2 stage process? i.e. Do some white balance, exposure stuff in DPP and then transfer the file to PS? And what file should be used? TIFF?

i m using photoshop 6 and photoshop cs2. in fact with photoshop cs2 u can deal with any file format.
i would say just do whatever u can to tune your picture with that raw converter. after all, fine tune them with photoshop.
as for which format. it doesn't really matter cheung. coz photoshop can handle all of them. but if u are a very serious photographer. just save it to either tiff or eps format.

I use Adobe light room to do basic adjustments and do the rest of the heavy processing in Photoshop CS2. I save all of my final images as 16bit .tiffs

I'm using DXO optics pro for RAW processing, because it's also an intelligent software. I does a lot of things compared to other raw sorfwares.
I do other other stuffs in PS after that.

It has inbuilt noise reduction ability which is really cool. It handles exposure really well. I have a picture which was really important to me. For that picture, the camera messed up and I ended up with a picture 2 stops underexposed with obvious noise (taken at ISO1600). It was a jpeg meaning less ability to manipulate. I just got it printed after using Lightroom and the result was unexpectedly good.
Bear in mind I'm only a simple person so these small things make a big difference to me.
