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 specification for delivery to the client on CD or DVD or USB stick.
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 better Over/Under Exposure Recovery
- Expanded Dynamic Range over standard In-Camera Standard JPEGs
- Wider Range for Correction from Mismatched Color Balance Settings
- Processed RAW Files saved as TIFs provide better Sharpness with NO JPEG Compression Artifacts
- Superior Results with Large Format Printing
But, the BIG advantage for having us correct and process your RAW or JPEG images is that they will then qualify for our economical “Ready-to-Print” option when your order is submitted through our online order portal.
How Do I Get My RAW Image Files to U-Photo?
You can provide your RAW or JPEG files on 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.
To send us your RAW or JPEG files on-line, you can send them by “wetransfer”, “one drive”, “google drive”, “dropbox” or upload them to our FTP site.
