Thanks Peter, I’ll look further into it. It’s a learning curve, this Canon stuff! I only tried jpg unto now as I’m more interested in getting used to it before I worry too much about image quality - it’s already way better than my phone! I’ll shoot some RAW today out of interest. I shoot mainly jpg as most of my shots are snaps whilst I’m doing something else, I never get to go out just to take pics. Hence, if I can get the camera set up with a few custom presets like ‘high speed action’, ‘low light’, etc. then I can concentrate on the image and not the camera.
Snapseed will process RAW files but I’m afraid I have no idea how it does it. I do not have your technical knowledge in that regard (I suspect that very few do!).
Cheers Ron, more work will be forthcoming! Yesterday morning I spent most of the walk with the camera set for 2/3 stop under exposure because I suspected (rightly) that it would be very prone to clipping highlights. This particular shot had no exposure compensation on it. As it happens, the sky didn’t blow out, the only bit that did was Tinka’s shoulder. The sky was just a bit bright but characterless.
There are days when I like muted colours, or monochrome and there are others when I want over-the-top levels of warmth and saturation - yesterday was the latter. I wanted that barley good and golden!
I’ve used Snapseed since the very beginning, when it was in its original format. I liked it then but it’s better now. It suits how I work - which tends to be very quickly! I also have Affinity Photo on my iPad. That is extremely comprehensive but the most unintuitive software I’ve ever used. I gave up on it eventually.
