Olympus Master 2 Tips and Tricks

Advanced editing features:
Now that you know a little more about what Olympus Master 2® has to offer, here are some helpful editing tips to help you get the most out of it.

Remember, whenever you’re editing photos, don’t lose your originals: always choose to [Save As] – and rename your file – so you don’t lose your original image. 

Tone Curve:
Tone curve provides a versatile means of adjusting brightness and color tone over an entire image by simply drawing a curve on a graph. In the initial setting, the tone curve is displayed as a 45-degree straight line. Using the tone curve is ideal for fine adjustments to brightness and color tone.

  1. Click [Tone Curve] in the "Edit Menu."
  2. Select the channel to adjust from [RGB], [R], [G], and [B] within [Select Channel]. The histogram and the tone curve of the selected channels will be displayed.
  3. Drag the tone curve to adjust the color tone.
    • The horizontal axis displays input level, and the vertical axis displays output level.
    • You can add up to 14 control points in the tone curve and lock their values.
    • To delete a control point, select the point, then press the "Delete" key on your keyboard.
    • Click [Reset] to return to the original state of the image.
  4. Click [Apply].

Gamma:
Adjusting Gamma helps control the way a monitor displays the midtones in your images. It can also help brighten the darker parts of your shots without "overexposing" the areas that already appear bright.

  1. Click [Gamma] in the "Edit Menu."
  2. Adjust the gamma by dragging the slider to the left or right.
  3. Click [Apply].

  2. Adjust the color by dragging the [Red], [Green], and [Blue] sliders to the left  or right.
  3. Click [Apply].

    • Select [Auto] to adjust the image distortion automatically.
    • Select [Manual] to adjust the image distortion manually by dragging the slider to the left or right.
  3. Click [Apply] and the adjusted distortion is applied to the image.

OLYMPUS Master 2 also has a function for developing a RAW image shot by Olympus cameras that support RAW shooting. Editing in RAW mode allows maximum flexibility for changing advanced image settings.
