My New X-Transformer Guide is now available

I’ve been promising this for a little while now, and I’m happy to announce that my guide for Iridient X-Transformer is now available. It took me a bit longer to get it finalised that I had thought because I kept doing different tests and tweaking the results and I also kept tweaking the text till I was happy. Called “Processing Fuji X-Trans Files with Iridient X-Transformer and Lightroom”, This guide is designed to help you understand and get the best results from using Iridient’s X-Transformer Software in Conjunction with Lightroom to process Fuji X-Trans raw files. 

A Sneak Peek at my Upcoming Guide for Iridient X-Transformer

I’ve been working on a guide for Iridient’s new X-Transformer for the past few weeks. While it seems like a fairly straightforward application, the combinations of parameters that you can set in the software, in conjunction with the possible combinations of settings to apply in Lightroom, make for a huge number of options. So I’ve been working on creating a series of recipes, to give you a set of combinations that you can try. I also try to explain how it works, and give you some ideas of workflows for using the software.

Updated Iridient X-Transformer Settings

I’ve written a few times now about using Iridient’s X-Transfomer to pre-process Fuji X-Trans files for use in Lightroom. As I have previously mentioned, there are lots of different combinations of settings that you can use, all of which will give you differing results. In my previous post, I thought that I had found the best combination, which was to apply a low level of sharpening in both X-Transformer and Lightroom, but since then, after more experimenting, I’ve come up with a different way of using it.

Tips for Using Iridient X-Transformer with Fuji X-Trans Files

Now that Iridient X-Transformer has been out on the Mac for a little while I’ve had a chance to play around with it for a bit. After lots of testing and trying various combinations, I’ve come up with what I believe is the best approach to take if you prefer natural looking images. In this post, I’ll outline the settings that I’m now using and some other tips for using the software. As always, I based these on my preferences, and so, you may prefer a different approach. However, if you’re looking for somewhere to start, then have a look, try the recommendations, and judge for yourself.
