Found it here in the RawTherapee documentation: In Colour Management, you can select an output and/or working colour space. Most likely, you selected one ending in _g10, which denotes a colour space with linear gamma. RawTherapee's main histogram and clipping indicators will also be based on the output profile. Ordinary sRGB has a gamma of 2.4 ...

As I don't have any extra photo editing programs I used iPhoto to do this. Open iPhoto with the option key held down. This gives you the option to create a new library. Create a temporary one somewhere where it will be easy to find and delete it later. Import all the Raw Pictures into the new library. Export them all in the required format. Quit and delete ...

Few (if any) of the codecs in the pack were built by Microsoft. They've been supplied to Microsoft by the camera makers to be repackaged in the same way that most device drivers are not written by Microsoft either. The codec pack can be used by any application that supports WIC (Windows Imaging Codecs). Paint.Net is one popular free (as in beer) ...

I am with Eyefi and I would like to see if we can get this sorted out for you. It sounds like you may have a standard Eyefi Mobi card. What color is your card and what is the GB capacity? If it's an orange 32GB card, its a standard Mobi card, which only transfers JPEG files via WiFi. If it's a black 32GB card, then it is an Eyefi Mobi Pro card and I would ...

The particular lossy compression used here is nothing to worry about. Here's why. Camera sensors are more or less linear devices, if you double the amount of light you double the signal produced by the sensor. Our eyes work logarithmically, so if you double the amount of light, it appears much less than twice as bright. Another example of this is if you ...

Even with lossy compression the NEF file still contains a lot more information than a JPEG file. There is considerably more data per pixel in the NEF file. Even if the 14 bits color depth is reduced somewhat by the compression, it's still way more than the 8 bits of a JPEG image. You won't see much difference between the JPEG and the NEF in a direct ...

On the Canon website, look under 'software' rather than drivers. Download and install the Canon RAW Codec 1.11.0 Alternatively, you can try FastPictureViewer, which is a 3rd party codec pack that support lots of raw file types including Canon. It also supports PSD, which is nice as well if you use Photoshop. There is a trial version to try, otherwise its ...

There's a lot of confusing articles on gamma correction with many vague references to gamma and human vision. The reason for gamma is historical and a result of the response curve of the old CRT-type monitors (nothing to do with human vision). With modern day flat screens there is no logical reason for gamma encoding and subsequent correction, but it has ...

There are several reasons to shoot RAW and JPEG: Just to recap: RAW is the information the camera gathers from the sensor, without (or just a bit) modification. JPEG is a lossy compressed image, which is created out of the RAW file according to your settings of film simulation, dynamic range optimisation, noise reduction and so on. In short, it misses ...
