My Iridient Developer X-Trans Guide Now Available
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.
This guide is a little different from my previous two. For a start it's much longer. I've covered the software in more detail, and if you've never used Iridient Developer before, this should give you the knowledge to use the software comfortably. It doesn't cover every single control and function of the software, but it does cover the basics.
It was actually something of a balancing act to write. I wanted it to be in-depth for relative beginners, but not so basic that it's boring for more advanced users. I tried to strike a balance by covering what you need to know if you want to process X-Trans files. Also, because some of the controls can be a little confusing for some, or work a little differently to how similar controls work in other software, I've gone through most of the main adjustment controls in the Settings window. Again, I tried to strike a balance between giving you enough information, without making it too dumbed down for more experienced users.
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.
I've spent a lot of time working on this book. It feels like I've been working on it forever, and it's considerably longer than the other two guides too. 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.
