WorkflowStep1SettinguptheDSLR

Yep thats right; the workflow starts with your DSLR. Setting up your DSLR
correctlycansaveyoualotofstressinthefieldandwillallowyoutoconcentrate
onyourphotographyandnailingthosegreatshots.RememberalthoughRSPcan
work wonders in resurrecting poorly exposed images it cannot correct for bad
composition or out of focus images, they are your responsibility. Here is my
simpleguidetosettingupyourDSLR:

1. White Balance Simply set this to AUTO and forget about it as RSPs

WorkflowStep2GettingyourRAWimagesontothePC

IfyoualreadyhaveyourimagesonthePCthenyoucanskipthisstep.Fortherest
ofyou,simplyconnectyourportabledownloaderormediacardreadertothePC
and start the RSP Downloader which is located on the main toolbar as shown
below:

RawShooter | premium 2006 Raw Workflow Guide v1.0.1 2


This will show the follow dialog:



Thedownloaderissimpletouse:

Specify the location of your files. If you have multiple directories then
choose the top most one and RSP will automatically find all those
underneathit.
SpecifythedirectorynameonyourPCthatyouwanttocopy/movethe
imagesto.
Forget renaming images at this stage as youll end up deleting a lot
anyway; it makes more sense to rename them after you have chosen the
best.
Unless you need it, ensure the Keep original folder structure option
uncheckedsothatallyourimageswillendupinasingledirectory.Any

WorkflowStep3Editingyourwork

Everyone needs to edit their work because all photographers, no matter what
theirlevelofability,takeimagesthatarebetterthanothers.Betoughandthrow
awaytherubbish,dontkeepanythingthatyoudidnotintendtobeoutoffocus
and learn from your
mistakes. The starting
point for any editing is
usually one of the 5
Display Modes that RSP
provides. Shown here is
display mode 2 (Shortcut
ALT+2),whichshowsall
the RAW thumbnails in
the currently selected
directory.Acrossthetops
are the group tabs, for
images that has been
given a priority or those

Reducing image noise to check the noise in an image zoom to 100%
(Shortcut CTRL + TAB) and select a border between the subject and the
background. To reduce the effect of noise apply a little noise / colour
suppression(typicallylessthan5)untilyouseeadifference.Beawarethat
adding too much suppression will have a negative effect on the subject
