JIF !!!!!

Scott Cramer says:

I hate when companies call them “trials” when they don’t expire. Very confusing.

jagerardi says:

Thank you for this. I had to go with Raw Therapee because I’d rather remove my reproductive organs with a rusty tuna can than ever use Windows 10. Raw Therapee works just fine with Windows 7.

You should try

Dan Ausec says:

I have been using Photoscape for 6 months and love it..however, I was going to get the Pro version for $30, but I noticed that they added a Magic Color button..sounds good, but now all of a sudden, the adjustments are not working in real time…there is a buffering effect, and it is very annoying to wait and see what the result is..i hope it is just a bug to be worked out, because I love Photoscape…anyone else have any insight? I would appreciate the feedback

Sekai Ni Heiwa says:

Just tried RawTherapies. Bye bye Adobe. Thank You


Thanks for all of the videos. I am new to DSLR and have learned a lot of valuable info. Well done and a appear to be a true nice guy! Thanks.

Does Raw Therapee have a clone tool?

Jan Martin says:

Hi tony and Chelsea love all your videos and on ‘ins books are great my question is can you recommend any free plug in for overlays use them on my flower photography and I living in darwin Australia m y husband and I watch your show every Saturday it’s our version of going to the movies we both love all your videos. Keep up the good work

bereantrb says:

Regarding the Win7 compatible version of Photoscape, I wonder what you mean exactly when you say it doesn’t have very good RAW support? I guess I can play with it and find out.

Rod Conlon says:

Hi Tony, two great programs and great to have them as extras to Photoshop (that I have been using for many years… it is my photographic friend). Amazing that such programs are free. Enjoyed Photoscape more even though I had to save editions… no big deal , just takes time and organisation. Rawtherapee is excellent but even for a Photoshop person like me I can’t ever imagine using it all. However, thank you for the reviews and I am still enjoying your book. I Keep discovering stuff and rediscovering what I had forgotten. Keep up the good work. Thanks Rod

Dean Seabridge says:

Does PhotoscapeX handle Fuji-X RAW files and both types (Uncompressed and Lossless Compressed) ???

Karim says:

I don’t see a free trial button…

The Time zNow says:

infundere says:

Thank you, Tony!

Greg Saviddis says:

Hi, Trying to download in the Windows 10 app store where the link takes you. Says working for a split second then nothing. Seems this is the only place to download as well. Anyone else having this problem?

peasant vasea says:

RawTherapee can also have Film simulations (HaldCLUT simulations) and are quite accurate

Daniel Dougan says:

I use Raw Therapee, and it’s great. But it works best in concert with GIMP.
