ImageGear Filter Control Parameters

See DCRAW Filter Control Parameters.


Leaf digital cameras use this format for storing Raw images.

By default, ImageGear automatically reconstructs colors in raw images during loading. You can disable one or more stages in the automatic color reconstruction, and reconstruct the images programmatically by using ImageGear Processing API. Use filter control parameters to disable specific stages of color reconstruction.

MOS Raw format uses TIFF/EXIF file structure as a base, but is not fully compliant with TIFF. Raw image is stored in the own Leaf tag as uncompressed or JPEG Lossless compressed grayscale image. Some of MOS images contain a small color preview in the same Leaf tag as JPEG Lossy compressed image.
