Sigma and Foveon have added a new monochrome mode to Sigma Photo Pro, allowing photographers to create monochrome photographs with RAW data and full RGB data for each pixel.
Sigma Photo Pro is an exclusive software package for displaying and manipulating, on your computer, the images taken with Sigma digital cameras.
Included in Sigma Photo Pro 5.5 are two functions: Colour Mixer and Film Grain Effect.
Colour Mixer alters the RGB proportions across the entire image. Different from a contrast adjustor, it allows the photographer to realise his or her vision. This function makes possible monochrome photographs that appear to have been shot with colour filters.
Film Grain Effect function replicates the graininess of classic film and the size and roughness of the grains can be adjusted.
The Sigma Photo Pro 5.5 for both Windows and Macintosh OS will be available in February 2013.
