RawTherapee

5.6.0
22 April 2019

64-bit open source RAW converter.

Overview

RawTherapee is a cross-platform RAW image-processing program, released under the GNU General Public License Version 3. It was originally written by Gábor Horváth of Budapest, but has since been taken over by a team of open-source developers from around the world. Rather than being a raster graphics editor such as Photoshop or GIMP, it is specifically aimed at raw photo post-production. And it does it very well - at a minimum, RawTherapee is one of the most powerful raw processing programs available.

  • You can scroll all panels using the mouse scroll-wheel.
  • You can right-click on a tool's name to automatically expand it while collapsing all others.
  • To change slider values or drop-down list items with the mouse scroll-wheel, hold the Shift key. This is so that you can safely scroll the panels without accidentally changing a slider or other tool setting.
  • All curves support the Shift and Ctrl keys while dragging a point. Shift+drag makes the point snap to meaningful axes (top, bottom, diagonal, other), while Ctrl+drag makes your mouse movement super-fine for precise point positioning.
  • There are many keyboard shortcuts which make working with RawTherapee much faster and give you greater control, make sure you familiarize yourself with them on RawPedia's Keyboard Shortcuts page!

What's new in RawTherapee

Version 5.6.0:
New:
  • Pseudo-HiDPI support, for a smooth and sharp user interface regardless of screen size. Pseudo-HiDPI mode is disabled by default, enable it in Preferences > General > Appearance. Scaling in RawTherapee depends on font size, DPI and display scaling. While scaling has been tested to work well in Windows, Linux and macOS, there are some macOS display modes which are incompatible with it, specifically those modes suffixed by "(HiDPI)" in macOS Display settings. Some versions of macOS (10.14.*) seem to not list any modes, in which case the user must just give it a try.
  • Ability to move tools to a new Favorites tab, http://rawpedia.rawtherapee.com/Favorites_Tab
  • "Unclipped" processing profile, to make it easy to save an image while preserving data across the whole tonal range, http://rawpedia.rawtherapee.com/Unclipped
  • User-adjustable tiles-per-thread settings in Preferences > Performance, for users who want to find optimal values for their system. The default value of 2 tiles-per-thread performs best overall.
  • Hundreds of speed optimizations, bug fixes, and overall improvements.
  • Requires librsvg >=2.40.
  • GTK+ versions 3.24.2 - 3.24.6 have an issue where combobox menu scroll-arrows are missing when the combobox list does not fit vertically on the screen. As a result, users would not be able to scroll in the following comboboxes: Processing Profiles, Film Simulation, and the camera and lens profiles in Profiled Lens Correction.

Requirements for RawTherapee

  • Intel 64
  • OS X 10.9.0 or later

This is the second image editor I’ve test driven only to scratch my head trying to figure out how to access my external drive. Is it possible? I mean, it’s a RAW converter… who keeps those archived on their local volume? And if it is possible, why is it so hard to figure out? It doesn’t support RAW files from my Sony RX-100 anyway so it’s a nonstarter for me.

Just downloaded RAW THERAPEE and same problem. IT STILL DOES NOT WORK. I cannot even open the App even though I downloaded it right here!?
Does someone have a link that has worked to use with Mac El Capitan 10.11? Tried 10 times or so.
