View images as shot in camera with film simulations

    Did you copy both the RAW and JPG from the camera? The RAW will initially always look unedited in the Browser but the JPG should have your simulation applied. If you've got both in the browser, you should be able to switch between them.

    As for Acros, according to the user guide (page 120) you should see that. If you don't, you'll have to ask On1 tech support about it.

    I don't know what Acros does, but in Develop there is a Match AI option (page 120) which will try to match the RAW to the JPG. You could give that a try.

    ACROS is a film simulation Fuji puts in their cameras. Photo RAW doesn't know anything about it. As Rick mentioned above about the closest you're going to get is the Auto AI function which will try to match the JPG. I would start there then make any adjustments needed to get a better match then you can save that as a Preset to apply to future photos.

    So from these messages, the full exif is not supported in ON1. The fact that Photo Raw doens't knw about it s beacasue it is not supported.

    The simulation is certainly stored in the exif data in either of two tags,


    0x1003 Saturation or 0x1401 FilmMode

    depending on the the specific simulation used.

    Using exiftool, you can see these tags and the results.


    Shouldn't have to guess since it is right there in the exif data.

    Jeff, you’re talking to other users here not the company. There’s nothing we can do about it.

    I have the same problem with B&W when I shoot with my Leica SL in that mode. I get around the problem of setting my View / Preview Mode to Fast rather than Accurate. I think in order for the preview to be fast it uses the imbedded JPG and that gives the simulation, in my case B&W. Give it a try and see if it works for you.

    Great answers

    Jeff, in order for PhotoRAW to do anything with the EXIF information it would need to be able to process the Fuji raw image data in exactly the same way as Fuji cameras do when producing their JPGs, but because the RAW processing engines are different even if Fuji published its settings that might not help On1 emulate the film simulations. And to be fair they would have to do this for all cameras and all their film simulations. So not surprising that mimicking ACROS is not a standard PhotoRAW option.

    As others have said the best way to be able to see camera versions is to shoot JPG and RAW but not set PhotoRAW to treat such pairs as one item.

    From Googling it looks as though there are some .ICC camera profiles that people have produced to mimic some Fuji simulations. The ones I saw were for XT1 and XT2 but you might find XT3 versions somewhere. If you import these into PhotoRAW then you will be able to assign a suitable profile in the Develop Tab which could be a better starting point for developing your images than starting from scratch.

    An alternative approach would be to see if you can find LUTs that do the emulation.

    The expensive but fully featured option would be to explore DxO FilmPack 6 which does have various Fuji film simulations. This can be called as a Layer from PhotoRAW and then the returned layer can be processed as normal in PhotoRAW.
