Why do my photos appear bright first and then dark later?
« on: June 09, 2013, 07:23:30 PM »
I have the same problem in Windows and Mac
I view the raw images I've taken
The photo will look bright and well lit
5 seconds later, it will appear dark
What's happening? Why does it do this?

If it was just Windows, I could blame Windows - but it happens on Mac as well
Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks


Omar

What you're seeing first is a jpeg preview, then when the RAW loads, it is displayed. RAW files are mean to be processed, hence the lower contrast and saturation.

I find it both funny and sad that the first thought is to blame Windows.

I find it funny that it was his second effort to use a Mac.
