Workflow And Settings For Processing Fuji X-Trans Images In Lightroom – Ebook Guide

Over the last few years I’ve covered a lot of topics relating to the processing of Fuji X-Trans files on my website. I’ve talked about some of the artifacts that can occur when processing these files in Lightroom, and I’ve shown some ways to minimise those artifacts by using the sharpening controls. These blog posts have been very popular and so I’ve collated the various posts, and re-written them into a single guide which discusses best practices for processing Fuji X-trans files in Lightroom.

I’ve also collected all the various X-Trans related presets that have been posted to various places on my website, and put them into a single archive. The e-book also comes with these presets too as a complimentary download to make it easier to find them.


This guide looks at the many aspects of processing Fuji X-Trans images in Lightroom. It talks about what makes the X-Trans sensor unique, and how that affects post processing. It discusses working with RAW and JPEG files in Lightroom, and shows some strategies for managing both.

It also looks at how to get the best out of Fuji RAW files in Lightroom. It shows you how to mimic Fuji’s film simulations, and how to match Fuji’s dynamic range settings. Finally it covers sharpening X-Trans files in Lightroom and how to minimise artifacts and reduce some of the issues around Lightroom’s conversion of Fuji Raw files.

As a bonus, this guide also comes with my collected Fuji Lightroom presets, all in a single easy to find collection. These presets have been given away on my Blog in the past, and I’ve included them with this guide as a bonus so that you don’t have to download them separately.
