Olympus Workspace vs Lightroom...

Mucking about with raw conversion to black and white, tonight. Hereís a couple of conversions.

In the black corner, we have Olympus Workspace.

In the white corner, we have Lightroom.

Points to note:
  • Same text presets were used in Photoshop.
  • So I put the differences down to a bug in Photoshop.
  • Impossible to get exactly equivalent output.
  • Because i) the way they do the black and white (red filter) Conversion is different.
  • And ii) Olympus Workspace highlight and shadows controls word different to blacks and whites.
  • I donít see any kind of levels equivalent in Workspace.

  • Lightroom is technically better, producing a cleaner and more detailed image.
  • But Workspace is very credible for less demanding use.
  • Clarity and USM (used in both photos) are a nice addition to Workspace.
