Raw Image Processing
Is Shooting RAW Really Worth While?
Raw image processing can be complicated, making it confusing to photographers that want to take advantage of the security and extended correction range that shooting in raw provides. We can simplify this workflow by offering this service that will free photographers from the burden of working in RAW. Well, most of it – we’ll still need you to download your memory cards!
Painless RAW Image Processing
We will professionally optimize and color correct your RAW digital image files, perform a rough edit (crop and/or rotate), and process them into hi-res JPEGs, ready for printing or uploading to an online Gallery. We can also prepare images to your specifications for delivery to the client on a CD, DVD, or USB stick.
Still want to shoot Jpegs?
Even if you are more comfortable shooting JPEGs, we can usually provide dramatic improvements to uncorrected images with our processing service. We also will store your enhanced files for up to one year on our server at no additional cost.
What are the Advantages of Shooting in RAW?
- Enhanced Control with Extended Over/Under Exposure Recovery
- Expanded Dynamic Range over In-Camera Standard JPEGs
- Wider Range for Correction from Mismatched Color Balance Settings
- RAW Files saved as TIFs provide better Sharpness without JPEG Compression Artifacts
- Superior Results with Large Format Printing
How Do I Get My RAW Image Files to U-Photo?
You can provide your RAW or JPEG files on a CD, DVD, or USB device. You can make an appointment to use one of the computers in our customer service area to upload files directly to our production server.
