IN THE RAW
Behind the scenes – software that digs into RAW files
■ You might not realise it, but RAW files you open in ACR have already been processed. Most RAW processing software performs so-called demosaicing, corrects for a green cast, and applies a gamma curve before even showing you the image on-screen. Some software, however, enables you to see the original incarnations of RAW files before any of this hidden processing is applied. RAWDigger is one.
A full frame and a detail as you normally see them on opening a RAW file, and as they look before green cast correction, gamma correction and demosaicing.
