Olympus Workspace

Olympus Workspace

Olympus Workspace, the new image management, and post-processing software for Olympus E-system cameras, was launched recently and is set to replace Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) as the default software for managing and editing *.orf RAW files. Its claim to fame includes support for various styles of photography workflows, features that meet the demands of pro photographers, customizable screen layouts, and high-speed RAW previews.

Well, I did my bit of being the early enthusiast, downloaded and installed the software, and started to evaluate the need for me to move over to Olympus Workspace, or stay put where I was, on Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3).

Here are some of the routines I went through:

    Installation and Setup

    'The new image management and post-processing software for Olympus E-system cameras' Olympus introduced the Olympus Workspace V1.0, its new image management and post-processing software, as a replacement for the aging Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) together with the recent launch of the new Olympus OM-D E-M1X system camera.

    Editing Film-Scan JPEG Images

    As an amateur photographer with only a basic Olympus mirrorless digital camera, I do not see myself going beyond the requirement of equally basic software for my post-processing and image editing needs. To meet this need I have always used Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3), to which I must admit, I am very familiar with.

    Editing B&W JPEG Images

    I am just trying it out aloud here! Olympus Workspace does not have a Monochrome & Sepia edit function, which otherwise can be found on Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3), the previous version of the software.

    B&W JPEG Conversions

    While not fully convinced that I should switch to Olympus Workspace and dump Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) altogether, I am giving myself the opportunity of going back and forth between the two for a chance of a hit that will make for a good decision. None so far.

    Demystifying Clarity and Dehaze

    While one of the main edit functions I use for enhancing images on Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3) is 'Brightness & Contrast', the function is not made available on Olympus Workspace, the new image editing and post-processing software from Olympus, which now replaces OV3.

    Crushing The Blacks

    A technique I had a lot of fun with while preparing for the'Analog Diary, An Outing With The Konica Z-up 28' post was converting film-scan JPEG images from color to black-and-white, and in the process, learning how to use and apply the 'crush the blacks' for image enhancement.

    Extended Exposure Shots

    Moving on now from film-scan JPEGs to digital JPEGs, these are images from my earlier post, Mobile Photography, Noise, Speed and All, which have been re-processed on Olympus Workspace, as compared to the ones done on Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3).
