Post a URL to one of your CR2 images so we can download and reproduce the problem.

Try the following command:
  • convert cr2:IMG_9459.CR2 image.png

CR2 pretends to be a TIFF image buts its not. The image magic number overrides the image extension so ImageMagick thinks its a TIFF based on the magic number. By prepending cr2: you are telling ImageMagick to bypass the magic number and explicitly treat the image as CR2.

The image appears dark because the image pixels are linear. Use a color profile to adjust the colors.

For color conversion you need two color profiles, a linear one and a sRGB one. The linear profile tells the profiler the original colorspace is linear and the second profile tells the profiler to convert the colorspace to sRGB. If you don't want to bother, use the dcraw program. It has a auto white balance option that will give you the results you're looking for (non-linear sRGB).

Its always best to see if your command works with the latest ImageMagick release. Otherwise post a URL to one of your images and the command you used to convert it and a description of the problem. We will see if we can reproduce the problem and offer a fix if we can.

I bumped into this conversation looking for methods to improve RAW file conversion using URFraw. Currently I'm getting dark images when converting from CR2 and ORF formats to PNG. Could you you please explain your response with an example command? Here are you talking about -colorspace or -profile option in ImageMagick?

Instead of trying to explain one side of a ten-year-old conversation, let's start again.

Its's probably best to supply a CR2 file you are having problems with.

Yes, we can start afresh.

This is the command I'm using:

Code: Select all

convert E1DXINBI003200.CR2 -colorspace RGB -resize 800x600 -colorspace sRGB out.png
I'm getting similarly dark image as output with this command as well:

Code: Select all

convert E1DXINBI003200.CR2 out.png
The sample input CR2 file can be found here - http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/c ... 00.CR2.HTM
Obtained output image is: Image

I'm using a MAC OS X (10.11.2) and ImageMagick Version is 6.9.2-4.

Result of

Code: Select all

identify -verbose E1DXINBI003200.CR2
is:

I don't know Ufraw and its options. I get a much lighter result from my usual converter, which is dcraw.

If I take your output and force it to an RGB->sRGB conversion, I get pretty much the same result as from dcraw.

Code: Select all

convert out.png -set colorspace RGB -colorspace sRGB s.png
So I conclude that Ufraw is giving you a linear RGB output, even though the file claims a gamma of 0.454545. I suggest you "-set colorspace RGB -colorspace sRGB" to correct it.

As snibgo recommends, use this command:
  • convert E1DXINBI003200.CR2 -set colorspace RGB -resize 800x600 -colorspace sRGB out.png

Thanks snibgo and magick.

Code: Select all

convert E1DXINBI003200.CR2 -set colorspace RGB -resize 800x600 -colorspace sRGB out.png
is giving an output that is much lighter. It's better than the earlier dark image though. I'll try some of the options provided by UFRaw and update it here if I get any success. Thanks.

Have you tried the code recommended?

I had the problem when IM used to use UFRAW and changed a setting in the delegates.xml file. The settings are not the same for dcraw.
You can create your own setting for use of CR2 in the delegates file - you will have to search for the post discussing it here on the forum.

i tried, but the result is not good. image is dark and colors do not match with the original image.

i got better results with this

Code: Select all

dcraw -v -6 -A 2000 2000 1000 1000 -T -O foto3.jpg foto.cr2
still darker but definitely better...
