I've installed BreezeBrowser Pro v1.4.2 to see how it performs & was initially quite impressed with the RAW conversion in the browser window.

Selecting RAW Convert brings up an image which is TOTALLY different to the browser & no matter what I do, I cannot get it the RAW converted image to look anything like the browser image.

Anyone any ideas - or I'll just stick to PPL v2

I just installed teh lateast Breeze Browser and have found the same thing. The conversion does not seem to work very well.

I do like the ability to browse RAW files rapidly and this is a big help in the first stage of the selection process.

What camera are the raw files from?

If they are from a Canon camera the "As shot settings" will produce identical results to the preview as it uses the same Canon routines to convert the image as the camera.

If it is another make of camera the results may be slightly different as the raw conversion libraries are based on the open source DCRAW code.


So there you have it - Breezebrowser panders to the Canon brigade & the rest of have to take pot luck.

However, it doesn't explain why they are able to convert a Pentax RAW image to proview in the browser to a better level that that of the converted image.
