dcraw - command-line decoder for raw digital photos
fldcraw [OPTION]... [FILE]...
fldcraw decodes raw photos, displays metadata, and extracts thumbnails.
-v Print verbose messages, not just warnings and errors.
-c Write decoded images or thumbnails to standard output.
-e Extract the camera-generated thumbnail, not the raw image.
You’ll get either a JPEG or a PPM file, depending on the camera.
-z Change the access and modification times of an AVI, JPEG or raw
file to when the photo was taken, assuming that the camera clock
was set to Universal Time.
-i Identify files but don’t decode them. Exit status is 0 if
fldcraw can decode the last file, 1 if it can’t. -i -v shows
fldcraw cannot decode JPEG files!!
-d Show the raw data as a grayscale image with no interpolation.
Good for photographing black-and-white documents.
-D Same as -d, but totally raw (no color scaling).
-h Output a half-size color image. Twice as fast as -q 0.
-q 0 Use high-speed, low-quality bilinear interpolation.
-q 2 Use Variable Number of Gradients (VNG) interpolation.
-q 3 Use Adaptive Homogeneity-Directed (AHD) interpolation.
-f Interpolate RGB as four colors. Use this if the output shows
false 2x2 meshes with VNG or mazes with AHD.
-B sigma_domain sigma_range
Use a bilateral filter to smooth noise while preserving edges.
sigma_domain is in units of pixels, while sigma_range is in
units of CIELab colorspace. Try -B 2 4 to start.
By default, fldcraw writes 8-bit PGM/PPM/PAM with a BT.709 gamma
curve and a 99th-percentile white point. If the result is too
light or too dark, -b lets you adjust it. Default is 1.0.
-4 Write 16-bit linear pseudo-PGM/PPM/PAM with no gamma curve, no
white point, and no -b option.
-T Write TIFF output (with metadata) instead of PGM/PPM/PAM.
Set the black point. Default depends on the camera.
-a Automatic color balance. The default is to use a fixed color
balance based on a white card photographed in sunlight.
-w Use the color balance specified by the camera. If this can’t be
found, print a warning and revert to the default.
-r mul0 mul1 mul2 mul3
Specify your own raw color balance. These multipliers can be
cut and pasted from the output of fldcraw -v.
-H 0 Clip all highlights to solid white (default).
-H 1 Leave highlights unclipped in various shades of pink.
-H 2-9 Reconstruct highlights. Low numbers favor whites; high numbers
favor colors. Try -H 5 as a compromise. If that’s not good
enough, do -H 9, cut out the non-white highlights, and paste
them into an image generated with -H 3.
-m Same as -o 0.
Select the output colorspace when the -p option is not used:
0 Raw color (unique to each camera)
1 sRGB D65 (default)
2 Adobe RGB (1998) D65
3 Wide Gamut RGB D65
4 Kodak ProPhoto RGB D65
-p camera.icm [ -o output.icm ]
Use ICC profiles to define the camera’s raw colorspace and the
desired output colorspace (sRGB by default).
Use the ICC profile embedded in the raw photo.
Flip the output image. By default, fldcraw applies the flip
specified by the camera. -t 0 disables all flipping.
Select which raw image to decode if the file contains more than
one. For example, Fuji Super CCD SR cameras generate a second
image underexposed four stops to show detail in the highlights.
-j For Fuji Super CCD cameras, show the image tilted 45 degrees, so
that each output pixel corresponds to one raw pixel.
For most cameras, -s and -j are silently ignored.
