This has been a long time coming, and it feels like I’ve been working on it for ages, but my third Fuji X-Trans guide is now finally available. This time, I’m covering Iridient Developer, and the e-book is a comprehensive guide to using the software for processing Fuji X-Trans files. I also cover some workflows for integrating Iridient Developer into a Lightroom Workflow.
The guide covers the following topics:
- Opening a folder and getting images into Iridient Developer.
- Using Iridient Developer as a Lightroom Plugin.
- Understanding the Iridient Developer controls.
- Understanding the demosaicing and sharpening settings.
- Noise reduction and lens correction.
- Creating black and white images in Iridient Developer.
- My recommended settings for sharpening
- Batch processing and exporting.
- Workflows for working with Lightroom.
As with my previous guides, I’ve also talked about the settings (or range of settings) that I use. Where appropriate too, I’ve given specific X-Trans tips. I also cover how to set up the software to use it as a plug-in for Lightroom, and I also briefly cover using the Apple Photos edit extension.
It’s 68 pages, and I hope it will help all of those who have written to me, who have struggled with Iridient Developer. I hope it offers something for those who are both experienced and relative beginners alike.
It’s available now from my Digital Download store. the normal price will be €5 but for the launch and the next week it will be available for €4.
There’s more information on the product page, including a PDF excerpt. I’ll be publishing some more excerpts over the next little while too.
