    Very good tip about the Custom set up use! It's nice to know I can at least save what I think I like and know if I screw it up I can bring it back.

    Yes, I use that all the time... it's my quick 'home' position.

    On the picture mode settings I thought this only applied only to jpeg output, I was under the impression that the Raw file stayed untouched when imported, otherwise it is no longer a raw file as such. Haven't found this in the manual just yet so I may of course be incorrect

    Hi Phil,

    the image settings are stored alongside the raw image data within the raw file - and carried through to Olympus Master/Studio.

    I load the raw file into Olympus Studio, and can then modify the image parameters there... before saving the developed image as a jpeg/tiff.

    If you use anything other than Olympus Master/Studio to open the raw file, the image processing options (sharpness, contrast, saturation etc etc) will not be recognised - you'll be using the raw converter supplied controls.

    Does that make sense?

    Cheers

    Oh okay, that is interesting to know, I will probably be using Lightroom when I get up and running, the quick starts are invaluable, many thanks

    I recommend to apply ones custom settings at the beginning of each photo session in order not to be surprised by some forgotten changes having done during the previous session.

    If one wants to change only one option of ones custom settings, one should apply the custom settings to be changed, alter the option, and finally save the current settings to the custom settings. This prevents the saving of forgotten changes one has done.

    Good tip pictor - that's what I do, using the Custom Reset option to get back to my personal defaults.

    Cheers
