I wonder how you found black points values.
I tried too, but starting from neutral profile i’ve found values so different from yours.
Maybe a scaling?
My attempt was too dark.

I used the RT poor_man_dehaze branch, which spits out the values in terminal :wink:

I love @heckflosse “dehaze” feature, used it in my edit too. Nice to use in combination with the soft light module.

I do hope it will find its way into the next stable version for others to enjoy.


Mon Dieu! Montmartre certainly has changed since I was there (60 years ago). Here is my interpretation of your photo.

That works nicely indeed :slight_smile: Didn’t use soft light for a while and almost forgot about it :frowning:

Tried to practice some local adjustments with the latest RT build. My objective was to get a pleasing sky and make the smoke pop without affecting the buildings. Still confused about a lot in the LA tab but I’m getting there… :slight_smile:

Just in case you are not aware: There’s a very nice video out there made by
Andy Astbury about L*a*b and specifically the RawTherapee Lab adjustments module:

Raw Therapee Basics: The Lab Adjustments Photo Editing Tutorial


Oh yeah, I know about those tutorials and I think I get the basics. But boy, it’s a rabbit hole. :smiley:

Shamelessly promoting my small contribution to the topic :wink: :

Oh I’ve seen that video some time ago, too. I was talking about the Local Adjustments tab, though.

Is the big building complex on the right the “Bibliothèque nationale de France; François-Mitterrand site”? I think so, it is 6,3 km from the “Sacré-Cœur”.

Oops sorry.

Interesting photo to play with!
Used RGB curves a bit …
