Hi, I am new here. Kudos to the Rawtherapee devs, I find it so far the easiest to get the colours I want with my Olympus m43 gear.
I have a scenario where it feels the reds are boosted heavily with most curves I try, By default I use the auto matched curve with Adobe DCP file for the camera, but will use bundled profiles here to illustrate.
I just screenshotted these 3 from preview as I had too many images (new user 4 image restriction):
Resulting image clips the reds heavily (screenshot):
This helps to control the clipping:
I use this as a sample because the histogram shows it very clearly, even though I seem to not lose too much applying the RGB curve. In another one I need a more extreme curve and visible colour and luminance issues (I had them all on here but that number-of-images restriction). Somehow the Olympus jpg outputs are managing a better job than me, although with a little bit of clipping on some of them.
Any suggestions how to compress the red channel and maintain colour and luminance across the rest? Or am I too pedantic about clipping?
