New highlight recovery in dcraw 8.17/1.325
As mentioned in the blog entry about the new DCRaw binaries Dave added a new highlight recovery option activated with -H 2. I did a small and not very scientific test to preview the new functionality.
No mouse = dcraw 1.325 -w; Mouse over = dcraw 1.325 -w -H 2
There are of course problematic samples too
You can clearly see the improvements in highlight areas. There are some teething problems and the images look darker overall, but as Dave described this change as „rudimentary“ we can surely expect more soon. Nontheless I’m already excited about the direction dcraw is heading 🙂
