Behind the scenes – soft­ware that digs into RAW files

NPhoto - - Competition -

■ 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.
