What is RAW development?
In digital single-lens reflex camera or same of digital compact cameras there is “RAW” file format as well as “JPEG” file format.
Generally well-known “JPEG” is a compressed image file format for general purpose and we can see it on PC as an image. But “RAW” format definition is different on each camera manufacturers. Therefore we cannot see it on PCs as it is.
Reference) The file extension is different on each camera manufacturers.
- general format
Now how can we see these “RAW” data as an image? To do it, “RAW” editing software like SILKYPIX series is needed. By this “RAW” editing software it generates high versatile “JPEG” image format, therefore we can see it on PCs. SILKYPIX call it process “RAW development”.
By “RAW” development enjoying of photos will be diversified.
The critical key point is that “RAW” data contains huge information rather than “JPEG”. Because of huge contained information it is the key to finish more beautiful photos.
Achieve rich adjustment function and comfortable operability.
