Projects / UFRaw


UFRaw is a utility for converting and manipulating raw images from digital cameras. It can be used as a stand-alone tool or as a Gimp plugin, and images can be batch processed using the commandline interface. UFRaw reads most existing raw formats using Dave Coffin's raw conversion utility DCRaw, and it supports basic color management using Little CMS, allowing the user to apply color profiles. For Nikon users, UFRaw has the advantage that it can read the camera's tone curves. Even if you don't own a Nikon, you can still apply a Nikon curve to your images.

    Release Notes: A quick release due to a crash bug in the last release. The good news for this release is that it includes a Win32 installer. With this installer, UFRaw is a stand-alone application and no longer depends on GIMP. The upside is that it should work more reliably, without the DLL issues that many users had. One downside is that the installer is much bigger (9MB) and requires much more disk space (53MB). Another downside is that there is no GIMP plug-in; you only get the stand-alone version of UFRaw.
