Re: Local Contrast Enhancement - Fuji X-Trans

From the paper: "The simplest way is to use the Sharpen transformation and perform Unsharp Masking with a large radius setting. The problem with this method is that, depending on the image, it can create broad halos around light subjects against a dark background or dark subjects against a light bac...

Re: Gradient Tool

I made a similar gradient. Viewed on a NEC PA monitor calibrated to Adobe RGB color space, the striations are visible at 1:1.

Re: DNG file weirdness

Here's a long shot you might try. Save the huge TIFF file and open it in PWP. Put it through an inconsequential transformation or two, for example, resize by taking one pixel off a dimension, or add a border and in a second step crop it off. Save the result and see whether it is smaller.

Re: DNG file weirdness

You probably need to describe the workflow that leads from the Canon raw file to the DNG in order for someone to suggest what happened.

The final step explains how to modify the text color.) 1. Create a new white window the same size as the image. 2. Put y...

Re: A visual center

I don't know whether it is a good idea, but if it is, it might be better to put the choice in the Layout transformation on its dropdown menu for Alignment of a panel. One reason I don't know about the idea itself, which is new to me, is that brief search on the Web shows that visual center is define...

Re: Histogram of a Preview Window

Hammering the Histogram tool on the Apply window of a transformation is not good enough?
