RawTherapee

RawTherapee is a free open source tool for photo editing.

These are some features of this tool:


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.
  • Advanced color handling from white balance to HSV (Hue-Saturation-Value) curves, color toning and color management.
  • 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. 


    Efficiency
  • 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.
  • Batch processing: convert all the developed images at once without loading the processor while you work.
  • Copy/paste editing parameters from one file to many other. Partially copying and/or pasting is also possible.
  • Basic tools immediately at your hands.
  • Parallel editing of multiple images in separate editor tabs, and/or all at once from the file browser.

  • Can load most raw files including 16-, 24- and 32-bit raw HDR DNG images, as well as standard JPEG, PNG (8- and 16-bit) and TIFF (8-, 16- and 32-bit logluv) images.
  • 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).

Granola


Really felt the need to recommend this program,
now that talk of crisis, to exploit the resources of the earth and all those things that make us fear for the future not, I think the best way to help us, our planet and our future is through small acts of love of them (because if we wait for the political solve something ...).
One of these actions is to download this free application "granola", which saves on resources that consume power our computers, then savings are transformed on the phone bill, energy savings and consequently it will benefit the environment.
In a short time this program has had many downloads.

My opinion, there is no charge, is not invasive and is a real gesture of love toward us, our planet and our future

NotifyMe (v2)

NotifyMe is a versatile personal management freeware program that can deliver messages of your own creation and remind you of important tasks.

NotifyMe is especially useful for busy people who use computers heavily as part of their daily lives. When time is getting away from you and standard reminder programs just wont do because their messages are too passive (i.e. you don't notice them) then NotifyMe is for you.
You can make NotifyMe loud and very obvious, so you never miss your reminders.
