I use Raw therapee for a while. Normally I open with auto match low iso. Then adjust white balance, explosure then keep 1st curve from auto match same but add 2nd s-curve to more taste I like the picture. Then often finish with sharpening and noise reduction. Some time also adjust Lap for
Chromatic and some curve. For vibrance color.
Question is : I often see tutorial start from neutral. Should I also start from neutral? Which mean not use auto match curve? Coz I’ve try few picture with neutral. Seem like it hard to get very nice result. Any comments or suggestions pls.
