  1. RAW images altered in background, auto pre-edit you cant undo

  2. Lastly, this is an example of what not to do. Pleas fix your software to not interpret and change my RAW.

This gives better tonal detail in shadows. So the really have a look at how Affinity does this. A recovery slider like Adobe etc really is a joke as it just turns the brightness down. True detail is recovered with the exposure slider. 2) Don't pre ad
