RAW Image Task



Canon Powershot G9

After you've chosen a RAW image and selected the Process RAW Images option in ZoomBrowser EX, this window appears before RAW Image Task is opened.

Here you can see RAW Image Task. This is a very useful editor that will allow you to convert your RAW files to a JPEG or TIFF file format. There are a wealth of adjustment options along the right hand side, like Digital Exposure Compensation, 8 White Balance presets or K (Custom Color Temperature), Tone Curve (shown below), My Colors as well as slide scales to adjust Contrast, Sharpness, Saturation, Red, Green, Blue, Skin Tone, and Adaptive Noise Control.

When you click on the Tone Curve option, this graphical interface is displayed. You can change the tonal curve by first selecting the desired settings (RGB, Rch, Gch, Bch), then clicking on the line inside the histogram and dragging it, or Load a custom setup, Save the current settings as well as reset to the initial Shot Settings.

After you are done adjusting the RAW image and you press save, this screen pops up.

Lastly, you choose the compression rate. Keep in mind that less compression = a larger file size.

Once you click save for the last time, the image is decoded first.
