GTKRawGallery is an open source workflow oriented photo retouching software with all necessary tools to quickly process camera raw images. For this purpose GTKRawGallery brings together the most powerfull open source software we have to work with 16 bit color depth images: Dcraw, Imagemagick and Exiftool. It is also a versatile photo manager for common image formats.
