Convert raw images to multiple formats

… using Rawstudio from http://rawstudio.org/

To get the best quality out of your digital camera, it is often recommended that you record your pictures in RAW format. This format is mostly specific to a camera and cannot be read by most image editing applications.

Rawstudio is an open-source program to read and manipulate RAW images from most digital cameras.

Rawstudio will convert your RAW files into JPEG, PNG or TIF images which you can then print or send to friends and clients.

It has a graphical user interface, so you can simply open a RAW file and experiment with the controls to see how they effect the image. Rawstudio has a very simple architecture which is optimized for ease of use and therefore should be intuitive to most photographers.

The normal workflow would be that you first convert your RAW files and then use an image editing application to further work on your images. Rawstudio itself is a highly specialized application for processing RAW images, not a fully featured image editing application.

Installation:

1. Download this .deb file.

2. Double click it and choose to install.

3. Ready. You should now find the application under “application -> graphics”.
