I'm currently working on a research project where we process images like the one below:
When you download the RAW file (click on "Request the original image file") you can see that there are many hot pixels, caused by the increased radiation in space. The goal is to get rid of these, that is use the average (or median) of the surrounding pixels. The output format then should be tiff.
I think in theory it is quite easy to do that, as it is simple to detect the hot pixels in the raw Bayer data, being fully saturated red, green, or blue pixels. Does LibRaw support this at the moment? If not, what is missing?
Thanks for your time,
