How do I processing RAW images in the same way my camera processes JPEGs?

Re: How do I processing RAW images in the same way my camera processes JPEGs?

Nikon and Canon have free software that is designed to convert raw files from their cameras.  Perhaps Panasonic does not.

If it does and it it works the same way as my Nikon software (and I assume like Canon's too) in default mode it converts the raw to be identical (and I do mean absolutely IDENTICAL)) to the jpeg from the camera.

The camera takes the captured data (which is raw data) and converts it to the jpeg you see -- using all the camera settings regarding picture styles, etc. in the process.  The manufacturer's raw conversion software does exactly the same thing.  That's why the converted result (when saved as an 8-bit jpeg and not a 16-bit tiff) is identical.

If Panasonic provides such conversion software, I suggest you try that and see how the results compare.  It may operate in the same way as Nikon and Canon's software does.
