ImageGear Filter Control Parameters

See DCRAW Filter Control Parameters.


Konica Minolta 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.

Konica Minolta Raw files use a proprietary format, that contains a hierarchy of segments. One of the segments contains EXIF metadata tree. Raw data is stored uncompressed.
