Photo Development
Not to be confused with the development of argentic films, photo development refers either in common langage to the simple JPEG file paper print, either to the development of RAW files that contains the sensor colour data savegarded in 12 or 14 bits format by the camera.

Compared to the preformated JPEG files that suffer from some data loss, RAW file development offers the oppotunity to extract and work on all the data captured by the sensor on the memory card of the camera.

RAW file development allows very fine adjustments :
  • High light recovery often lost in JPEG format
  • Colour balance adjustment,
  • Correction of geometric aberrations
  • Correction of chromatic abrrations
  • Fine sharpness adjustment,
  • Colour correction on 8 colour zones
A retouching work normally finish the work with fine local adjustments to give to the image its true character.
We can do this work with the photographer. If this is not the case, we, at least, control the final result with him.
