Most photography enthusiasts, be they experts or hobbyists, save their shots in raw formats which can only be previewed and modified with dedicated software solutions, such as
Picture Style Editor
which allows users to create style files out of their pics.
The application installs smoothly on any computer and one simply needs to drag and drop their raw graphic files onto the main window in order to start editing it. Picture Style Editor supports several types of raw formats, such as CR2, CRW, TIF and TIFF.
Once an image is loaded, the app automatically displays a tool palette where one can select the tweaks they want to apply.
More precisely, they can start with the basic adjustments that include modifying the sharpness level, along with the contrast, color saturation and color tone. The changes can be previewed in real-time so they can be immediately corrected.
The next step includes the six color-axis adjustments and they allow users to experiment with the colors in their picture; as such, they can enhance the hues until they are pleased with the result.
Users can also apply specific color enhancements by relying on the dedicated color picker, select a color in the image and modify it.
Before saving the style file, one can modify the white balance setting to auto, daylight, cloudy, tungsten, white fluorescent light, flash or color temperature. The brightness level can be modified to make sure the picture objects are properly highlighted.
All in all, Picture Style Editor comes in handy to all those who like processing raw graphic files and want to create style files within minutes. The photos can be enhanced with ease, so that even novices can make the most of their pics with this freeware app.
