Camera Raw 7.4 and DNG Converter 7.4 Now Available

Camera Raw 7.4 is now available as a final release through the update mechanism in Photoshop CS6.  The goal of this release is to provide additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Camera Raw.  Customers of previous versions of Photoshop can utilize DNG Converter 7.4 for raw file support for newly added cameras.

Changes to Existing Camera Support:

Camera Raw 7.4  includes a correction to the demosaic algorithms for Fujifilm cameras with the X-Trans sensor. This specifically impacts the following cameras:

  • Fujifilm X-Pro1 (*)
  • Fujifilm X-E1 (*)
  • Fujifilm X100S
  • Fujifilm X20

(*) Based on user feedback, the default sharpening amount applied to Fujifilm X-Pro1 and Fujifilm X-E1 raw files has been increased between Camera Raw 7.4 Release Candidate and the final Camera Raw 7.4 release.

Camera Raw 7.4 includes a correction to the demosaic algorithms for Fujifilm cameras with the EXR sensor. This correction applies only to raw images captured using the “EXR HR” mode with the following cameras:

  • Fujifilm X10
  • Fujifilm XF1
  • Fujifilm X-S1
  • Fujifilm S200EXR
  • Fujifilm HS20EXR
  • Fujifilm HS30EXR
  • Fujifilm F550EXR
  • Fujifilm F600EXR
  • Fujifilm F770EXR
  • Fujifilm F800EXR

Adjusted Nikon default white balance for the following camera models:

  • NikonD2X
  • NikonD2Xs
  • NikonD2Hs
  • NikonD200
  • NikonD40
  • NikonD50
  • NikonD80

– Fix default aspect ratio support for Fujifilm X-E1 raw files.

Bugs Corrected in Camera Raw 7.4:

The following bugs that were part the Camera Raw 7 releases have been corrected. The team appreciates the very detailed feedback the community has provided on Camera Raw 7 and we’re excited to correct a number of issues experienced by our customers. These issues have been FIXED:

  • Improve interactive performance at intermediate zoom levels (e.g., 33% and 66%).
  • Remove strong color cast when converting images to grayscale.
  • Rendering of floating-point HDR images with unexpected embedded ICC profiles (non-linear gamma).
  • Ensure that local adjustments are synced properly when copying & pasting settings in Bridge.
  • Prevent point curve adjustments from disappearing off the top and bottom when using the arrow keys to adjust curve points.
  • Square tile artifacts while painting with local adjustment brush.
  • Grid overlay artifacts in Lens Correction panel when adjusting crop rectangle.
  • Shortcut (control-click, right-click) to adjust local adjustment brush size and feather size.

Bugs Corrected in Lightroom 4.3:

The following bugs that were part the Lightroom 4 releases have been corrected. The team appreciates the very detailed feedback the community has provided on Lightroom 4 and we’re excited to correct a number of issues experienced by our customers. These issues have been FIXED:

  • Autolayout produces a Book with the correct amount of pages but without any images added. Please note that this only occurs when the filter is set to “Unused”.
  • Uploading large panorama images to Revel caused Lightroom to crash.
  • The “Unused” filter was not properly filtering images within the Book Module.
  • Lightroom hangs while changing the Exposure adjustment by typing in a numeric adjustment. Please note that this only occurs when the Enter key is not typed to confirm the adjustment and another Develop adjustment is tried. Also please note that this only occurs on Windows.
  • After creating a new folder in Lightroom, attempting to undo that folder can sometimes cause a corrupt catalog.
  • An image can be simultaneously flagged as both a Pick and Reject at the same time.
  • Using multiple colors within a single text cell within the Book Module can cause Lightroom to crash.
  • Unable to post photos to Flickr when the image filename contains an apostrophe.
  • The active Develop slider, the one controlled with + and – keys, defaults to Exposure when moving from one photo to another.
  • Catalogs from Photoshop Elements 11 would not update in Lightroom.
  • Site titles longer than 70 characters created in the Web Module can cause Lightroom to freeze.
  • Cell padding linking lost between sessions.
  • Deleting the top image in a stack causes the entire stack to disappear.
  • Tethered capture fails when turning camera off and back on. This also can occur if the camera goes to sleep and then wakes. This occurs only with Canon cameras and on Mac only.
  • Cropping an image to a small size sometimes causes the image in Develop to become blurry.
  • AVCHD video formats are not properly importing into Lightroom. Please note that this only occurred on Mac.
  • Enable Profile Corrections does not auto find iPhone 4 profile.
  • Crop doesn’t update in second monitor if navigator panel closed. Please note that this only occurred on Mac.

Help with Disappearing Books in Lightroom 4

Lightroom 4 includes the ability to easily create and publish photo books. While many Lightroom customers have enjoyed creating photo books inside Lightroom, some have reported a disturbing bug about which I’d like to provide additional information.

The Issue

While working on a page spread that contains a caption with multiple colored text, the book can disappear.

To Avoid the Issue

  • Update to Lightroom 4.2 immediately. Lightroom 4.2 contains safeguards that may aid in the recovery of a lost book. To update, please either use the Help-> “Check for Updates” menu option within Lightroom or download the update here [Windows, Mac]
  • Avoid using multiple text colors within the same text box

Recovering a lost book

  • If you are using Lightroom 4.2*, this warning will appear.

  • Click “Cancel”.
  • Quit Lightroom 4.2.
  • The warning will appear again. Click “Cancel” again.
  • Restart Lightroom.
  • In the Book module, your book will be there.

*We are not aware of any methods to recover a lost book in either Lightroom 4 or Lightroom 4.1. Please update to Lightroom 4.2 through the Help->”Check for Updates” menu option within Lightroom or download the update here [Windows, Mac]

Next Steps

The Lightroom team is currently researching and evaluating this bug to ensure that there are no other ways that it can be triggered. Our aim is to include a fix in a future update to Lightroom 4. In addition to the feedback we received from the Lightroom community and feedback forums, I’d like to also personally thank two Lightroom customers who played a critical role in helping us isolate and better understand the bug. Alan Shapiro and Marko Nara, thank you for all of your help in getting to the root of this issue.

DNG 1.4 Specification Notes

I’ve received a number of questions about what’s new in the DNG 1.4 specification that we posted earlier this week.  If you’re not comfortable diving into the 101 page document, here’s a quick summary with a few of the potential implications of the new enhancements to the file format.  [Please note that this content is an adaptation of a presentation created by Thomas Knoll, co-creator of Photoshop and creator of Adobe Camera Raw and the DNG file format.]  Before we dig into the new changes I think it’s worth looking at the history of DNG format innovations:

DNG Revision History

DNG Version 1.0 – September 2004

  • Initial Release

DNG Version 1.1 – February 2005

  • Preserving Masked Pixels

DNG Version 1.2 – April 2008

  • Camera Profiles (See also, DNG Profile Editor)

DNG Version 1.3 – June 2009

  • Opcodes (e.g. Lens Corrections)

DNG Version 1.4 – October 2012

  • Default User Crop
  • Transparency
  • Floating Point (HDR)
  • Lossy Compression
  • Proxies

 

Default User Crop

Many cameras have aspect ratio crop modes, e.g. 4:3 or 16:9, yet still save the entire sensor image to the raw file.  In the image below you can see that the raw file contains the entire black area within both of the camera’s crop modes.  The new tags allows the crop setting to be respected but to also allow the customer to “un-crop” the image to see the entire sensor area.  (See the new DNG Recover Edges Plug-in for Lightroom on Adobe Labs to “un-crop” a DNG file: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lightroomplugins/)

 

Transparency

When images are “stitched together” in an alignment process or panorama process the resulting image could have “undefined” pixels around the edges.  The new specification update now allows for those undefined areas to exist in a raw file format.

 

Floating Point (HDR)

HDR images have a high dynamic range that will not fit into a 16-bit linear integer encoding.  Floating point storage of information allows for a larger amount of dynamic range to be stored within a file:

  • 16-bit integer data can only store 16 f-stops of image detail.
  • 16-bit floating point data can store over 30 f-stops of image detail.
  • 32-bit floating point data can store hundreds of f-stops of image detail.

Lossy Compression

The current tradeoff in image quality and file size between a DNG and JPEG file:

A lossy compressed DNG file is much smaller but maintains the flexibility of raw data:

DNG Proxies combine the ability to utilize lossy compression with downsampling.

Summary

These new features to the DNG file format are exciting imaging advances that enable numerous workflow opportunities.
