Imitate Reversal Film

This is the operating interface of reversal film simulation. There are two types of reversal film in the drop list, Fujifilm Velvia (RVP) and Kodak B/W T-Max 100.

 

 

At the right of drop list, there is a option about portrait. To tick it for processing a portrait photo.

At the right of Kodak B/W T-Max 100, there are two options, one is light priority, the other is proof black. To tick the first option, the result will keep down more detail on light area of photo. If the result appears more red in your screen or print photo, please tick the second option.

Exposure help you about your underexposureh or overexposure photo. Use it carefully, less should lose detail in light and dark part.

Chroma allows user to adjust color of result richer or thinner.

Sharpen lets image be cleaner

After openning image in DigitalFilm, setup your parameter, click "Apply", a little second, you can look at the result. Of course, you can use the default setting. The use is very easy, isn't it?

 

Save Result

Click "Save" to save the result. The default setting will save the image by "DF_" + original file name.

 

 

Select the file format as “JPEG”, click "Save", the following window will appears:

 

 

Select better image quality, the result file will be larger. Tick the option of "Save EXIF information" will save the EXIF data with image together.

If you select the file format as "TIFF", the following window will appears after click save botton.

 

 

Tick option of "LZW" allow the file size will be smaller and keep the same image quality.

 

Watermark

The watermark tool add a photo or character as logo in the image.

 

 

Location frame inclodes the items of horizontality and verticality. Adjust the "Align Left", "Center Horizontal", "Align Right" and the "Align top", "Center Vertical", "Align Bottom" and "Offset", the logo image can be located in the digital photo.

The value of opacity decides transparency of watermark, the value is from 0 to 100, 0 of value is translucent completely.

In the image as logo, user can set one kind of color translucent. For example, the space area of logo image is a single kind of color, then the space area will be translucent appointing a given color by picker. The logo will inosculate with photo closely setting opacity.

The introduction of function about character is in the part of signature.

 

Signature

The function can add character or image to the photo as a logo or mark, the default value is character signature.

 

 

The function of "location" and “opacity” in signature is same as in watermark.

"Set text font and color" just like normal word editor. Specially, when set word white, the background color will display black automatically.

“Insert image and Exif parameter”, allows user select some macro label of EXIF as note of the photo. The way will save you a lot of time instead of copying and pasting the data of EXIF by using macro label.

The standard format is <label name/>, the label name is standard EXIF name. Of course you can modify this character by yourself if you can type these macro label correctly. When you put in these labels, the software will read the value of these labels and instead of them. You still can set these labels color and font just like normal character.

The introduction of about image logo is in the part of watermark.

 

Border

It adds all kinds of simple frames for image.

 

 

First, you'd better know two concepts, "underlay" and "border". Just like mount a picture, the edge of picture will be packaged and then be pasted in a board larger than the original. We call the board as underlay and the packaged edge as border.

Either "underlay" or "border", they all offer to set the width of each edges alone. You can select "Equally" and set some one edge width, the value of other three edge will follow the first edge width. If the value of one edge is zero, it means there is not any pixel of edge can be looked.

The user can use simple color or image as underlay. We suggest to choose a texture picture or the current original image as underlay. At the same time, you'd better use a image larger than the original.

"Border" only allows to use simple color. The use way of "Opacity" is same in "watermark" and "signature". To tick "Inner Image" and to set "Opacity" rightly will bring a special effect.

The function panel still set two common-use value in advance, "Black frame on white" and "White frame on black".

There are ten kind sizes of samples in the "Templet" list.

Resolution includes five types of items for screen display or printing.

The user can fill note in "Title", "Signature", "Content" to record information for the index photo.
