nUFRaw – import and edit RAW images from digital cameras

The new Unidentified Flying Raw (nUFRaw) is a utility to read and manipulate raw images from digital cameras. It reads raw images using Dave Coffin’s raw conversion utility – DCRaw.

nUFRaw supports basic color management using Little CMS, allowing the user to apply color profiles. For Nikon
users nUFRaw has the advantage that it can read the camera’s tone curves. Even if you don’t own a Nikon, you can still apply a Nikon curve to your images.

nUFRaw can also work as a GIMP plug-in.

Features include:

  • Updated to the last version of dcraw (lot of new cameras supported).
  • heavily reviewed the preview window (the main UI) in a more standard way.
  • global reset button.
  • new zone-view momentary rendering.
  • all panels are resizabile (paned boxes).
  • standard gtk save window.
  • preview widget on the chooser dialog.
