Edit RAW or any image format in high quality, even in batch mode, with Photivo

Photivo is a free photo processor that will let you edit RAW files as well as bitmaps (TIFF, JPEG, BMP, PNG, etc) in a non-destructive 16 bit processing pipe with gimp workflow integration and batch mode.

Photivo’s aim is to provide the best algorithms available. It is intended to be used in a workflow together with a manager such as digiKam and an editor such as Gimp, and it needs a quite strong computer; in any case Photivo is not recommended for beginners.

Features: 16-bit internal processing, color managed with LCMS2 * Gimp workflow integration (import and export) * Works with RAWs and Bitmaps (8 bit bitmaps are transformed and processed with 16 bit) * CA correction, Green equilibration, line denoise, badpixel reduction, wavelet denoise, median filters on RAW data * Perspective correction (tilt and turn), distorsion and geometry (also defish) correction * Demosaicing: Bilinear, VNG, VNG4, PPG, AHD, DCB, mod. AHD, VCD, LMMSE, AMaZE (needs work!) * RGB, R, G, B, L*, a*, b*, Texture, Detail, Denoise, Hue, Saturation, L* by Hue, Base curve * Tonemapping (Reinhard 05 (RGB Brighten), Fattal et al. (Dynamic range compress));

Several local contrast filters (HiRaLoAm (Local contrast), texture contrast, local contrast stretch) * Sharpen (Edge avoiding wavlets, USM, Highpass, Inverse diffusion, Wiener filter, Gradient sharpen) * Denoise, seperately on Luminance and Color (Edge avoiding wavelets, GreyCStoration, Wavelet, Masked bilateral, Pyramid) and via a hue or luminance sensitive denoise curve * Adaptive saturation * Film grain simulation * Black and white conversion * (Split) Toning * Cross processing * Gradual overlay (like Cokin filters) * Vignetting * Softglow / Orton * Texture overlay (external texture) * Batch mode
