Working Within Color Spaces

Myth: Color space has the most important effect on color

Working Within Color Spaces

Do you use Adobe RGB? Is sRGB a pro format? Should pros really start using ColorMatch RGB? Or is there some other new color space permutation that will give even better results? The problem with this discussion on color space is that it assumes the digital camera has captured the correct colors in the first place and that all you need is the right color space to get the most from those colors. Digital cameras don't quite work that way, unfortunately.

The Digital Negative Format

Adobe's proposed standard RAW file format could be the key for the long-term protection and viability of image files

The Digital Negative Format

Adobe Systems, Inc., has announced a standard RAW file format initiative called Digital Negative (DNG). Since Photokina and Photo Plus Expo last fall, there has been much discussion regarding DNG with a certain degree of skepticism exhibited by photographers, camera companies and the photography industry in general.

Turning On The Brights With DxO Optics Pro

DxO Optics Pro's Highlight Recovery brings overexposures back to life

Turning On The Brights With DxO Optics Pro

Areas of an image lost to overexposure or excessive brightness can seldom be recovered, and digital sensors tend to be particularly sensitive to excessive burning in whites and brights. This “highlight clipping” occurs when the photosites of the sensor fill with the maximum amount of information they're capable of containing. In other words, the image becomes blown out.

Lightroom Lights Up

After a lengthy public beta and considerable time and thought in development, Adobe Lightroom arrives. Will the application become your ultimate workflow tool?

After more than a year of “public preview” and several years of internal development, Adobe has shipped Adobe Lightroom.

Synergize

By using the inherent capabilities in your image-processing software, you can work efficiently and exercise greater control over all of your images.

Synergize
