OK So I’m a bit awkward but I prefer to use Linux rather than Windows. Luckily there’s a great raw image developer running on Linux called Darktable. Unfortunately the tools that convert the .RAW files from the SJ7 into a .DNG file Darktable can use are Windows based tools. Rather than having to boot up Windows to convert the files then reboot up into Linux to do the editing I decided to hit the WINE. WINE WINE is a software package that add a compatibility layer into Linux providing libraries and dlls so that some Windows programs can be run under Linux. Installing it was easy on Linux Mint 18.2 – all I did was open up a terminal and entered the following (it might be different with your distro) sudo apt-get install wine and entered my password and the package was installed. EXIFTOOL Eiftool, the tool that sets the white and black levels in the DNG files, is also available on Linux. Installation was done in a similar way using sudo apt-get install exiftool RAW2DNG I got the link for the conversion tool and directions for use from Troy and followed the instructions to set up the software. I then copied the “RAW2DNG for YI Z26L” directory to “/home/<username>/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)” (replace <username> with your own username) Adobe DNG Converter Unfortunately Darktable doesn’t read the DNG files created by this tool correctly, to solve that I have to install another Windows tool called Adobe DNG Converter Open up a terminal in the directory you download the tool in and type wine DNGConverter_10_0.exe If this is the first time you’ve ran Wine then it may go through some setting it self up, installing Mono, etc – just enter the necessary choices and info for it to install. It will then run the install program for the DNG Converter and put it into the wine program directory mentioned earlier. Creating the Desktop Icons Rather than typing in the commands from a terminal every time I want to use them I set up desktop icons for the three tools. To create a launcher I right clicked on a blank area of the desktop then selected “Create Launcher”. For the three tools I entered the following info into the fields RAW2DNG - wine "/home/<username>/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/RAW2DNG for Yi Z26L/raw2dng_en.exe" exiftool - exiftool -WhiteLevel=1024 -BlackLevel=65 %1 -overwrite_original Adobe DNG Converter - wine "/home/<username>/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Adobe/Adobe DNG Converter.exe" Remember to replace <username> with your own username. Workflow Double clicking of RAW2DNG desktop icon opens up the tool and you can drag and drop your .RAW images onto the program windows and set the output directory then run the tool. In a file browser window select all the created DNG files and drag them onto the exiftool desktop icon so it will set the black and white levels of all the images. Finally double click on the Adobe DNG Converter desktop icon and set up the input and output directories and file info then convert. The resulting .DNG files can then be edited in Darktable. If you’re using another software package (RawTherapee for example) then you may not need to use the Adobe DNG Converter.
