Almost everyone who’s spent more than a little time with a camera shoots to RAW. After all, RAW lets you make bad photos average, average photos excellent, and excellent photos even better. That’s because it offers significantly more image data than, for example, JPG. And thanks to this it gives you room for much better edits. So let’s take a look at how to work with it.
After uploading a photograph in RAW, you open it using your photo editing software only to discover that the colors are displayed incorrectly. Or, you receive a notification saying that the image format is not supported. These are some problems you may run into with RAW files. The solution is simple – download the Adobe DNG Converter and connect it with Zoner Photo Studio.
How quickly you can browse and sort your photos partly depends on the speed of your computer (alongside the size of your photo files, and more). But that doesn’t mean you need a new computer to enjoy faster photo browsing. Before heading to the computer store, head into ZPS and try out 1:1 preview preloading. Faster and better previews are among the new features brought to you by 2019’s Autumn Update for Zoner Photo Studio X.
Have you ever racked your brains because the RAW developer in Zoner Photo Studio produced results that slightly differed from the camera’s JPEGs—for example brighter or differently colored? The problem’s not with you, nor is it with ZPS. It’s a side effect of camera manufacturers’ trade secrets.
In today’s article, we’ll take a look at how to touch up a foggy winter picture. Our sample picture was taken in the morning fog, and so it’s underexposed and practically monochrome. Because of this, we’ll be focusing in this article on how to adjust exposure and restore pictures’ colors. We’ll be using Zoner Photo Studio for our edits.
Today we’ll be telling you about how digital photography works with “bitmap graphics” and that these have some minuses compared to “vector graphics.” But—what do these phrases even mean? And what bitmap formats are there within digital photography? And out of those, why shoot to RAW instead of JPEG? Read on to find out!
Inspiration for photos can come from anywhere—even from a video. In today’s article, we’ll be following the story of a photo inspired by a Pink Floyd video: the birth of its idea, the shoot preparation, the shoot itself, and the post-editing. If you like the picture’s final style, then try to recreate it! All you’ll need is a camera and a lens, plus Zoner Photo Studio for the post-editing.
Many photographers have climbed to the top by breaking the rules of the art. But before you can break the rules, you have to master the rules. In this article, we’ll help you masterfully break the rules on contrast. (And we’ll also take this opportunity to showcase the excellent RAW development toolkit in Zoner Photo Studio 17!)
RAW’s rawness makes it a foundation you can build on. If you don’t arhive your RAW files, you can’t really do new and better takes on your pictures in the future. That goes double in a world where technology and software are constantly evolving and improving. Today’s new processing algorithms can get you much better outputs than in the past. This, too, is a great reason to always keep your RAWs.
