Sample Images

Below are example images from The DIGITAL NEGATIVE 1ST and 2ND Editions. For the benefit of readers of both editions, both sets of images are available for download.

The images offered for download require a password in order to access the Example Images posts to the DNG downloads. You can find the password in The DIGITAL NEGATIVE the first edition and the newly released Second Edition on page 42 of Chapter 2 Adobe Raw Image Processing: An Overview. In Figure 2.2, I show a screenshot of one of the initial versions of an application from the fall of 2002 that was a precursor to Lightroom. The name of that application is the password to view the Example Image posts. Note: the password is case sensitive!

Once you enter the password for a single post, you’ll have direct access to all the other Example Images posts.

NOTE: The Lossy DNG files require Camera Raw 9.x in Photoshop CC/CS6 or Lightroom CC/6 in order to open and see the adjustments. The DNGs are not compatible with previous versions.
