It’s time for a guest again. Nachbarnebenan shows how to process a RAW image in the current (well, it was November…) version of Photivo. Photivo has a very different approach to image processing from GIMP and others. It’s more stacking up and tweaking of algorithms instead of making a series of changes one after the other. Fully non destructive and very powerful.

To isolate the model from the a bit to vivid background Nachbarnebenan produces two images from his RAW file. One is crisp and colourful – best for the model. The other one is soft and a bit dull – this tones the background down.
In the next episode he will show how to combine these two images in GIMP into one.

I am still looking for “Bad Good Images” from Phones and other not so good cameras!

Sorry, no TOC up to now.

Episode 043: Brand New and Stone Age

Brand new tech- nology meets stuff from the Stone Age, ehm… the 70’s.

Rawstudio’s 1.0 release sits on the lab bench for a test run. I am impressed by the workflow and the overall appear- ance. The output in the video has some noise in it, but that was my fault.

I had my camera set up to store a RAW and a JPEG image and have put both files and the camera profile into the companion file to this episode. Now you can try to get a better image out of the RAW file than the processor of a Nikon D200.

In a lot of discussions and tutorials you read the term “lith” or “lith film”. One is running in the meetthegimp.org photogroup at 23.hq. I found an old box with real lith film and take you back some decades while describing how I have worked with these sheets of plastic.

Then I try to rebuild one of the effects that were done with lith film in GIMP. I just emulate the effect, but I am working on a process to really simulate the process done with film. You can find the file to this part of the podcast also in the companion file.

How did you like the concept of these two last shows? Not one monolithic block but several shorter segments? I want to offer a mix of different topics in each episode, covering different levels of experience and different interests. I have put up a poll for you to vote on the side bar. If you want to give me more input than just a click, write to info@meetthegimp.org or post a comment here in the blog.
