ColorWasher 2.0 suggestion

Postby John Ferguson » Wed Jun 02, 2004 1:03 am

Upgraded to ColorWasher 2.0 mainly for its 16 bit compatibility. The other improvements are good, but I work in 16 bits after RAW conversion and am glad to see it finally released. Considering the FocalBlade 16 bit upgrade was free, I think the upgrade price was a little high.

However, it still has one annoying flaw. In the advanced mode, when changing from RGB to Color Temp it automatically moves the slider all the way to the left and 255 degrees. It doesn't actually change the colors until you move the temp slider but what I wish it did is to evaluate the current picture and move the color temp slider to a position that corresponds to the current temperature instead of moving all the way to the left. There are many times when I like using the auto buttons but then want to slightly warm up the picture, maybe 100 degrees, but can't do this without guessing where to start. I want the slider to move to the current temp to use as a starting place instead of moving all the way to the left. ColorWasher 1.0 does this also. Harold, is this fix possible?

What are ACR and EVU?

Softer images certainly let you apply a larger amount of sharpening. C1 images are alreay quite sharp while PS RAW ones are relatively soft.

During my tests I brought the image versions from C1 and PS RAW on the same visual sharpness level. Then I zoomed to 200% and deeper. I could clearly see that the PS RAW version already had a lot of sharpness artifacts while the C1 version had as good as none. If an image is of a better quality, you can make it visually sharper without adding sharpness artifacts.

Sorry for being unclear. With ACR I meant Photoshops raw converter (Adobe Camera Raw) and with EVU I meant Canons new raw converter (EOS Viewer Utility). Not to be confused with Canon's other new raw converter, DPP (meant for Canon's pro DSLR's, but not necessarily better, image quality wise). Anyway, thanks for your reply.
