while I generally find the auto white balance method of RawTherapee to be much more consistent than what my camera (a Sony a6000) gives, it tends to produce a temperature that is “too cold” for my tastes.
So, during the weekend I was playing with the idea of letting the user have some control over the AWB algorithm. I thought about a “bias” that can be used to have RawTherapee select a warmer or cooler temperature. In order to test whether this made sense, I just implemented it Here’s a screenshot of my modified RawTherapee which explains the feature:
I must say I am quite happy with the results, so I was wondering:
- does this make sense at all? or maybe there’s some obvious reason why this is a bad idea?
- would somebody be interested in this? I can try submitting a patch/pull request in this case
