I am getting the mesage:-
"Non-neutral gray patches. The gray patch in row 4, column 3, has a significant color cast. Please reshoot chart carefully to avoid color casts and try again." These are RAW images from my Panasonic FZ200.
I shot the first try in the garden against a concrete post surrouinding by a grey weathered fence in bright winter noon/early afternoon time sun. I then tried again with a large sheet of black paper as the backgroud with the sun approx 45 degrees to the chart. Same conditions.
If I import the RAW images into Photoshop Elements 11 "As shot" I find that the offending square reads:-
Noon time - R217,G220, B220 approx. As I move the cursor Band G remain near or the same value but R can be up to 3 or so points higher
Early afternoon - R201,G201, B191 approx. As I move the cursor R and G remain near or the same value but B can be up to 10 or so points lower
What could be causing the color casts and how can I avoid it. grass and other plants are a large feature in the surroundings.
I have reshot the chart using Daylight and Shade white balance; used auto before. The Profile editor has now made some profiles.
I have installed the *.dcpr files in:-
C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles\Camera\Panasonic DMC-FZ200\Panasonic DMC-FZ200 Daylight.dcpr and
Panasonic DMC-FZ200 Shade.dcpr
I now wish to try these out.
When I open a RW2 image in Elements 11 and goto the camera tab the only choice I have is Adobe Standard.
Am I installing the dcpr files in the correct place?
Found the folder:_
If I use Export Panasonic DMC-FZ200 Profile it creates correct name and place profile in right folder.
Should have found answer earlier.
