    Develop module Digitising colour neg

    The quick and dirty method is as follows: 1. Photograph the negative on a light table. Include a bit of the orange surround but not too much or it will throw out the exposure. 2. White balance on the orange. 3. Create and apply a negative curve. That is, the opposite of the normal linear...

    Develop module Why is Adobe Standard profile so bland lately?

    Despite not clear on the acronym DCP, I agree with the points you make in para, 1. Once upon a time, the gold standard was to have the camera produce colour card accurate images. I think this was the purpose of Adobe Standard. It seems times have moved on and the preference is to create...

    Migration to Windows 11 nightmare

    It's pretty simple really. For LrC, keep your data on any drive other than C:.

    Import Raw vs jpg rendering

    Thanks, I'll give it a go. You may be aware that when Olympus was making cameras, it was rumoured that it had a strained relationship with Adobe. Being a small fish in a big pond, Olympus was secretive over its IP, including colour profiles. It would be a shame if that was still the case with...

    Import Raw vs jpg rendering

    After further testing, I've found I had made an error and my statement above is incorrect. OM Workspace is consistent in the rendering of both raw and jpg. So, the problem lies with LrC. Coincidentally, someone on another forum, also with an OMS OM-1, has complained of the LrC Camera Matching...

    Import Raw vs jpg rendering

    If you mean, have I calibrated the monitor, then yes. The desktop monitor is calibrated to Adobe RGB but this laptop I'm typing this on is sRGB but I'm seeing the same thing.

    Import Raw vs jpg rendering

    I extracted the jpg from the raw as suggested above. That shows that the out-of-the-camera jpg is indeed enhanced as expected but still leaves the question as to why the developed raw is even more saturated, as I demonstrated with the images above. I thought it was an Adobe issue, but it seems...

    Import Raw vs jpg rendering

    The profile chosen in the camera is "Picture Mode Natural" which appears as "Camera Natural" in LrC.

    Denoise success

    I think I've written this before. I was testing AI Denoise against other software on a full moon shot. It was on 100%. I pixel peeped the detail then thought I'd discovered an alien moon base, but it was artifacts. The artifacts were larger and more localised than sharpening artifacts. It's...

    Import Raw vs jpg rendering

    About the same as the AUD, so not a problem :) It's not a big deal for me. I would edit how I like it anyway, mostly from raw. I was just curious as to why the big difference and was it perhaps my settings.

    Denoise success

    Indeed, however, we would still need a way of backing it off, lest it throws up AI artifacts as can happen when near 100%.

    Having trouble attaching images to a thread

    Thanks Voctoria, that worked a treat. It was the pixel count that got me.

    Import Raw vs jpg rendering

    This was shot as a jpg + raw, imported into LrC and exported directly as jpgs for this thread. It was shot with the Camera Natural profile. The raw is an ORF file. The first is the jpg, the second the raw. To my eyes, the jpg looks natural although I would probably want to enhance it a bit...

    Having trouble attaching images to a thread

    I'm wanting to attach a couple of explanatory images to another thread. Using the "Insert image" icon, I've reduced the image size a long way and still get a message that the file is too large. I assume there's a file size limit stipulated somewhere but I couldn't find it. Any ideas?

    Import Raw vs jpg rendering

    I understand that. You second para is exactly my point, one would expect them to be similar but they seem different enough to suggest something else is going on. It's very noticeable if bursts are shot in raw + jpg. In culling, one clearly sees the change from raw to jpg in each successive...

    Import Raw vs jpg rendering

    When shooting raw + jpg and importing, the rendering of the two appear noticeably different. The unedited raws look better than the jpgs, which surprises me. My understanding is that when Adobe creates camera matching profiles, they are intended to make converted raws look as close as possible...

    Long time to render

    I don't know. It just is quicker on my machine.

    Long time to render

    The conventional wisdom seems to be not to create 1:1 previews in import, but I find having them all up before starting the cull, greatly speeds up culling.

    Long time to render

    Is it just the Standard Preview or all sizes? Has it always been like this?

    Benefits of upgrading from 7th or 8th Gen i7 to a new i7 13th gen PC when using LR

    I can't speak for other processes, but for AI Denoise, moving from a GTX to an RTX series GPU, will give a quantum leap improvement in performance.

    Are you "ejecting" the card correctly?

    OM1 Mk2 - No ORF Raw compatibility

    In terms of raw conversion, there are those that know this sort of thing better than I, that believe that third party apps cannot match the manufactures' apps. My own testing has shown that OM Workspace (OMW) can elicit ever so slightly more detail from an ORF than LrC. How they do it is, of...
