Oval gradient transform question

Is there a way to use an oval gradient transform to darken the edges of an image instead of lighten? Like an option to invert the mask within that transform?

PWP 7 RAW prodessing

I currently own PWP 5 and have been playing with the 7 beta for processing RAW files (Sony .arw) with excellent results. I've been comparing the output with other "big name" raw processor and in almost every case I prefer the images as processed by PWP 7! Also, the issues with white balance on my So...

Re: PWP 7.0 Beta Available

FYI. I've noticed an inconsistency with auto white balance (at least with my Sony .arw RAW files). If I have the white balance set to auto WB when I load the raw file, it displays pretty much as it should. If I change any of the RAW processing settings, the white balance changes and is off quit a bi...

Re: removing green and/or purple fringing?

Yes, it is fun! I've just started playing with dcraw some too. FYI. There is program distributed with "hugin" that is supposed to be able to "automatically calculate lens chromatic aberration correction parameters". The bottom of this page explains how to use it to calculate parameters for dcraw: ht...

Re: removing green and/or purple fringing?

OK, I see what was going on. When I clicked on either Show Affected Region or Save as Mask, it would switch focus to the preview window. When I then click on the transform window, to switch back to it, so that I can click OK, it made the control point not active. What I have to do instead it to move...

Re: removing green and/or purple fringing?

Yes, that's exactly what I would expect, however if I click Apply or OK, the resulting image is in full color, and is not the mask that I saw in the preview window. I've tried this over and over again. I select the Color Correct transform, make the original image 1:1, click on the color I want to re...

Re: removing green and/or purple fringing?

I've played with this a bit (PWP5) and had success removing the fringing using the Color Correction transform. However this also affects other areas of the image, so I guess I need to use a mask. In the Color Correction transform, there are check boxes for Show Affected Region and Save as Mask. I se...

removing green and/or purple fringing?

What would be the best way to remove (or at least reduce) green and purple fringing? I initially thought to use the Chromatic Aberration transform, but that has controlls for red and blue shift. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks.

PWP 5.0 Raw conversion...

Is it OK to still ask a question about PWP 5.0? :-) I just got a new camera (Sony SLT-A65) and when I try to process RAW (.ARW) files from it, they have a blue tint and very little color. I have tried converting them to DNG files, and PWP 5.0.1.11 seems to be able to process those correctly. Why wou...
