I just wanted to start with Topaz Studio 2 and I am very confused, how RAW images look like, when I open them. They are very flat, and by that I mean VERY flat. The picture have almost no colour. I played around with a few sliders in the Basic adjustment panel, but it’s hard to get the image looking as a real image.
I mean, I know that raw images are raw and you have to develop them, but the way Topaz Studio handles it, seems to be very unpopular.
I use Lightroom as main raw editor and when I import an image there, the image at least looks almost normal and with a few adjustments the picture looks great. And I tried an few other programs and the raw images all have a good starting point.
Here a quick comparison:
Why do images look so flat in Studio? Or am I doing something wrong?
