Took my camera and step-dad for a walk around the park. I love all the flowers that are blooming there now, especially when the sun is shining at the right angle and lighting up parts of the flower. They have the yellow-orange day lilies and these dark red/burgundy color with yellow centers…those are my favorites. I decided to use Topaz Studio on the jpg to give it a softer look; I need to find out from Topaz what’s up with the Fuji X-T3 raw files in their software. I get a black vertical band on the right hand side of the raw photos, but not the jpg’s. I never had that problem with either of the raw files from my Olympus OM-D EM-5 or the Panasonic FZ-300. Does anyone else with a Fuji camera, and using Topaz Studio to process raw files, have that problem?
