Bibble is designed to allow you gain the most quality from your digital SLR through the manipulation of raw CCD files from the camera. Raw files are the digital equivalent of a film negative. They record up to 12 bits of information per pixel and store the data in an uncompressed form without any additional color corrections, sharpening or compression. By providing access to this virgin data, Bibble allows photographers to exercise maximum creative control over their final images, while simultaneously delivering the maximum quality possible. Conversely, Jpegs should be thought of as digital prints. Jpegs only records 8 bits of data per image, and are heavily processed in camera. Much like prints delivered by a photo lab, Jpegs have someone else's interpretation of what the color is supposed to look like. Additionally, while smaller in size, Jpegs have been compressed which introduces artifacts and reduces sharpening. Tiff files do not have the compression problems of Jpegs, but can be very large and slow to use. Even with all their size, they still only contain 8 Bits of data per channel, though they do not have the compression issues of Jpegs. With Bibble, you can quickly and easily browse through your raw files, edit and adjust them, and then save them in final form as either Jpegs or Tiffs. Additionally, Bibble offers many powerful tools that allow you to adjust the images to your satisfaction. Bibble's list of features include the following:
