ImageGear Filter Control Parameters

See DCRAW Filter Control Parameters.


Fujifilm 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.

Fujifilm Raw format uses a proprietary prefix followed by TIFF/EXIF file structure. Raw image is stored uncompressed. CCD sensor in many Fujifilm cameras is rotated by 45 degrees, to improve quality of vertically and horizontally oriented objects in the picture. ImageGear automatically rotates these images during the "Low level processing" step of Camera Raw color reconstruction.
