Why another test?That's a good question. There are numerous tests on the internet, nearly every photography related magazine performs some kind of them. Unfortunately most of them are useless, too complicated, incomplete or simply untrustworthy. Another problem is lack of any (more or less complete) test of linux specific software. That's why I decided to start my own tests.
Test rulesExternal control is the most importatnt part of a test. All my test images may be downloaded (in RAW format) therefore independent testers will find all the mistakes and inconsistencies I may not even think about. I am open to every kind of cooperation and discussion. Please check the results for yourself. That's the best test you can get.
A good test should be visual as numbers not always express what we see on the screen. A good test should allow to compare results between different software or hardware. A good test should be up to date and free from author's conclusions. I will keep to all those rules.
I made my test images myself and all the copyrights belong to me. I allow every person to download them and use for personal tests and tests only. If you are willing to publish your test please drop me a line about it and add a link to this webpage.
