The Base curve is used to alter how the raw light data is interpreted. You can think of this almost as the input curves in other apps, they control how the raw data in the file gets pulled into the image editing space. This is often where fancy curves are used to simulate different types of film and such... that's very much what it's doing, adjusting the ...


Canon EOS 1100D white balance presents have been commited to ufraw source at 2011 July. Either install an ufraw binary version which was created later, or you might compile your own version.


I have found the setting which was giving me this strange behaviour. I had set it without even noticing. It was under the crop and rotate tab, scaling factor (in italian fattore di ridimensionamento). In my case it was set to 100, I put it back to 1 and the problem was solved.

I have found that many image editors modify and even delete metadata, and I am not surprised that Ufraw does that too. One way to transfer metadata from the original to the processed image is to use the very flexible ExifTool. It's a simple executable that runs on many platforms and has tons of features. Check it out here The basic command to copy metadata ...


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) ...
