About RawTherapee For MAC

RawTherapee, a cross-platform RAW-image-processing program, is released under the GNU General public License Version 3. Gabor Horvath, a Budapest-based programmer, originally wrote it. However, a team open-source developers have since taken over the program. It is not a raster graphic editor like Photoshop or GIMP. It is specifically designed for raw photo post-production. It does this very well. RawTherapee, at its most basic, is one of the most powerful and efficient raw processing programs.

  • You can scroll through all panels by using the mouse scroll wheel.
  • Right-click on the name of a tool to automatically expand it and collapse all others.
  • Hold the Shift key to change slider values and drop-down list items using the mouse scroll-wheel. This allows you to safely scroll the panels, without having to change any sliders or other settings.
  • All curves can be dragged using the Shift or Ctrl keys. Shift+drag snaps the point to meaningful axes (top-bottom, diagonal, and other), while Ctrl+drag fine tunes your mouse movement for precise point positioning.
  • RawTherapee has many keyboard shortcuts that make it easier and faster to use. You can learn them all on RawPedia's Keyboard Shortcuts Page!

Whats New

Version 5.8.0: New Features

  • Automatically recover detail lost to lens blur (diffraction) using the new Capture Sharpening tool, located in the “Raw” tab. It takes place right after demosaicing, and as it works in linear space it is not prone to haloing. Capture Sharpening in combination with Post-Resize Sharpening allows for detailed and crisp results.
  • CR3 support: image data is decoded so you can process your raw files, but metadata is not supported yet. If you have an ICC or DCP input profile for your CR3-producing camera, you will need to point RawTherapee to it manually (Color tab > Color Management > Input Profile > Custom).
  • Improvements of various camera models (new DCP dual-illuminant input profiles, raw crops, white levels, etc.), speedups and optimizations to various tools, better memory management, various bug fixes. See the git log for details.

RawTherapee and other open-source projects require access to sample raw files from various camera makes and models in order to support those raw formats correctly. You can help by submitting raw files to RPU: https://raw.pixls.us/

News Relevant to Package Maintainers
New since 5.7:
  • Optionally link against libtcmalloc.so which comes with Google’s perftools, to fix issues where glibc won’t give memory back to the OS. Use via the CMake options ENABLE_TCMALLOC and TCMALLOC_LIB_DIR.
In general:
  • To get the source code, either clone from git or use the tarball from https://rawtherapee.com/shared/source/ . Do not use the auto-generated GitHub release tarballs.
  • Requires GTK+ version >=3.16, though >=3.22.24 is recommended.
  • GTK+ versions 3.24.2 - 3.24.6 have an issue where combobox menu scroll-arrows are missing when the combobox list does not fit vertically on the screen. As a result, users would not be able to scroll in the following comboboxes: Processing Profiles, Film Simulation, and the camera and lens profiles in Profiled Lens Correction.
  • RawTherapee 5 requires GCC-4.9 or higher, or Clang.
  • Do not use -ffast-math, it will not make RawTherapee faster but will introduce artifacts.
  • Use -O3, it will make RawTherapee faster with no known side-effects.
  • For stable releases use -DCACHE_NAME_SUFFIX=""
  • For development builds and release-candidates use -DCACHE_NAME_SUFFIX="5-dev"
