Hey all,

Ok....I'm sure I could look in the owner's manual....if I could find it. With that said, here's my question:

- The image output isn't optimal. I'm always haveing to futz with the levels and color saturation to make images pop, and probably still not doing the best job. When shot, the raw images look somewhat underexposed and the color dull. I know some digitals fix all this in the camera settings. Any ideas for the D100?

Thank you for your wisdom.

Jim JLP

It's this whole thing about color space. When you shoot in RAW mode it belongs to no color space. Until you bring it in and manipulate it, it's RAW. And all those settings in the camera only apply to non-RAW images -- that's why they call it RAW!

I have a friend that shoots in Adobe RGB Color Space and his images are less than impressive until he pops them into Photoshop and let's it know the color space of the incoming image.

Heck -- your images look so much better than the rest of us, you HAVE to give us a break! You're like Neo fighting with one hand behind your back!!!!

To echo what Bob said, it sounds like color space problems. If you have your camera set to sRGB or AdobeRGB and then you open it up in Photoshop and it asks to convert it or it tells you that there is no recognized color space.

Photoshop 5&6 didn't do that good a job of color management, 7 does a great job, and you can download a fix from adobe that will tell Photoshop to recognize the Nikon 4.0xxxx (same thing as AdobeRGB1998, but the name is copyrighted so they can't use it)

But here is the trick, you have to have Photoshop set to a color space, preferably the one that you are shooting in. I do alot of pre-press work so I use AdobeRGB 1998. The best all around color management setting for Photoshop is the "U.S. prepress defaults". These cover all the bases and you can find them under the Edit menu and color settings in PS7. I also customize my settings some to streamline things a bit....by turning off the profile mismatches warning because I get lots of photos from other sources than myself.

Anyway, it sounds like you are shooting in a managed space but you aren't manageing you computer. AdobeRGB will look flat and unsaturated if you have your color space set to a generic monitor profile.

Hope all that made sense [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I agree, it sounds like you haven't set the color space. Also, I accidentally got my contrast and a couple of other settings messed up on mine one day while playing, and just followed the instructions to reset back to factory defaults.

But, it sounds like color space to me too. Are you using Spyder or some type of color management software on you computer? That helps too.
