RawTherapee Raw Image Processor

The open source raw image processing program RawTherapee 4.2 has been released recently with new features and speed, stability and memory usage optimizations.

RawTherapee is an advanced program for developing raw photos and for processing non-raw photos. It is non-destructive, makes use of OpenMP, supports all the cameras supported by dcraw and carries out its calculations in a high precision 32bit floating point engine. RawTherapee supports JPEG, PNG, and TIFF as output format for processed photos.
