Blue Wizzard Posted July 19, 2015 Report Share Posted July 19, 2015 Hi. I am now ramping up my usage of Daminion as an ideal replacement of my aging Extensis Portfolio DAM cataloguing software :-) I am trying to understand my ideal workflow... - Currently I import (ADD) my RAF (FujiFilm raw) images. - Do a Batch rename - Then Copy/convert to DNG file - Thus giving me TWO versions of the same image (RAF & DNG) :-) 1) Just looking at the normal thumbnail view of the images, I can see a distinct difference between the original RAF thumbnail & the DNG thumbnail. - Usually the DNG thumbnail is a few shades darker! Any ideas why this happens?? 2) If I double-click on a thumbnail I get a full screen view of the thumbnail. When I compare the fullscreen view of the RAF thumbnail, with the fullscreen view of the DNG thumbnail... - There is a definate image quality difference :( - The DNG thumbnail is a lot lower in quality, than the RAF thumbnail :( - I have the Adobe DNG Converter set to generate a "Full Size" JPEG preview!! Is there any way of increasing the quality of the DNG preview?? - I would have thought that the RAF & DNG thumbnails should be identical!! I have generated DNG files form within Daminion, and from outside (using the Adobe DNG Converter) - I get the same results ! 3) If I open the DNG and the RAF images in Photoshop, then there are NO differences with the full-sized original images. They are identical. As I would expect :-) - Thus the problem (difference) is with the JPEG previews !! Any solutions or comment greatly appreciated...
