Fhotoroom is a popular Windows Phone photo editing app that is also available over on the Windows 8/RT platform. That version was recently updated to version 1.4 that offers a few new editing tools and RAW image file support.
For those not familiar, RAW image files are basically unprocessed .JPEG files. Many prefer to shoot in RAW format to do the image processing themselves (exposure, contrast, saturation, color temperature, etc.) before converting the image to .JPEG as opposed to allow the in-camera processing to handle the task. Each camera manufacturer crates it's own RAW format specific to each camera model. Think of a RAW file as a digital negative that needs to be developed.
Version 1.4 of Fhotoroom supports over 150 RAW file formats from camera manufacturers such as Canon, Olympus, Nikon, Kodak, Pentax, Sony and Panasonic. While this is a huge feature, the downside is that Fhotoroom automatically processes the RAW file, eliminating the appeal in using the format.
Along with the RAW support, the updated version adds a few bug fixes and the following features to the mix.
- ColorSplash Threshold option added
- Highlight and Shadows option added
- 5x7 and 7x5 crop sizes added
- Undo, Redo and Original controls added
The update adds some nice functionality and features to Fhotoroom. I would have liked to have seen more control in the RAW file conversion but until we see something along the lines of Adobe Photoshop coming to the Windows RT arena, Fhotoroom will come in handy for processing RAW files while on the go.
