Thank you both for your concern and effort! Artisan-West, your work looks really AMAZING!
Sony a7 camera line also makes files with extension ARW but every a7 model makes technically different content in .ARW -file. So it is upon the editor sofware to recognize the right camera model and render the image accordingly.
Modern cameras make quite a good job exposuring pictures right. And when you import your correctly exposured image into editor software, basically only thing you should need to do is to adjust geometry correction and you are good to go. Image with correct exposure should never look dull and lifeless with default settings in editor software.
I photograph people. A lot. With current version of Topaz Studio I find it impossible to get right adjustments to make human skin to look healthy and natural.
Image with no adjustments should look something like this:
Not like this:
Still, I’m sure Topaz Studio will be a great tool for photographers like me very soon.
Thank you once again!
