Image Processing

Turning raw files into images

Magnus L Andersson

Here you find posts about our way of turning raw files into images we are happy with.

There is no “best” way of doing things, or results that count when in comes to photography. Hence, it’s ok to dislike our ways and results.

For a more detailed description of our process, have a look at our page on image processing using Lightroom as the basis. This page is never finished and evolves the more we learn.


The smell of developer is gone
