Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video When to load raw files, part of Learning Photomatix Pro.
…So far I've been working with raw images…and this is the ideal workflow, remember your…raw files are easier to manipulate and they…contain much more data than a flat jpeg.…With that said though, it is okay to pre process your images using another tool.…Let's start by working with just some raw images, and…talk about some of the benefits of the raw files.…For example I…will take these images in,…and we'll merge those.…In fact because they're raw files, I can choose to…even see the intermediate 32 bit image and save that.…
I'm going to align these images.…Let's reduce chromatic aberration and reduce the noise a bit.…And notice that the White Balance can actually be changed…to any of the settings that the RAW file supports.…So this gives you a lot of options.…In fact, you could even preview the image, if you…want to get an idea of what the White Balance should be.…Load the image, see the image, and take a look…at some different presets so you can make the judgement call.…Cloudy versus daylight. I like daylight.…
