RAW Image Task

A new addition to ZoomBrowser EX 4.6 is the 'RAW Image Task' feature, an integration of a RAW converter which allows for a wide range of RAW adjustments to be applied and an image or selection of multiple images to be processed using those adjustments. You can make the following adjustments:

  • White Balance
    • Auto
    • Any camera setting
    • Kelvin WB
    • Dropper manual
    • WB fine tune
  • Digital Exposure
    • -2.0 to +2.0 in 0.1 EV steps
  • Photo Effect
    • Any camera setting
    • Other custom: Lighter Skin Tone, Darker Skin Tone, Cool, Warm, Positive Film
    • Contrast (-5 to +5)
    • Sharpness (0 to 10) - default 7
    • Saturation (-5 to +5)
  • Tone Curve
    • Manual tone curve
    • Load / Save
  • Adaptive Noise Control (0 to 10)
  • False Color Filter (On / Off)
  • Color Space (sRGB, Adobe RGB)

The level of adjustment available in ZoomBrowser's new RAW Image Task feature is far greater than used to be available in FileViewerUtility and will provide Pro1 owners with an interesting range of additional functionality through RAW. Interesting to note the range of adjustment latitude available here but not in-camera.

This is the main RAW Image Task window, as you can see the process of converting RAW images has been simplified to a three stage system, and that you can work on multiple images at once.

Typically along with this window are several 'floating' windows which provide information or access to the adjustments detailed above:

Navigator window Histogram window
Properties window Adjustments window

Once you are ready to save your images simply select step '2' and the save window is shown:
