It includes enhanced exposure and tonality tools, multiple denoising methods, sharp mask, RL deconvolution, contrast by detail levels, and Batch processing mode to improve your photo experience.

High Image Quality
  • 96-bit (floating point) processing engine.
  • Non-destructive editing.
  • Get the most details and least artifacts from your raw photos thanks to modern and traditional demosaicing algorithms: AMaZE, DCB, AHD, EAHD, HPHD, IGV, LMMSE, VNG4, Mono and Fast.

  • Powerful CIE Color Appearance Model 2002 (CIECAM02) module.
  • Enhanced exposure and tonality tools: tone and Lab curves, highlights and shadows tools, tone mapping (HDR-like effect), etc.
  • Multiple denoising methods: luminance, chrominance (both rewritten in 2012), impulse (for salt and pepper noise) noise reduction.
  • Several tools to enhance details: unsharp mask, RL deconvolution, contrast by detail levels.
  • Multi-threaded algorithms for high performance (RawTherapee can utilize modern processor features, like SSE).
  • Quick thumbnails load lightning fast and are replaced later with live thumbnails.

  • Can save JPEG, PNG (8- and 16-bit) and TIFF (8- and 16-bit) images.
  • Advanced control over the algorithms with many fine-tuning parameters and curves.
  • Can send to GIMP or the editing tool of your choice in one click (16-bit TIFF file).
  • Command line usage besides the normal graphical interface.
