Publisher's Description

An image editor which supports RAW images and 16-bit processing:

Photivo handles your RAW files as well as your bitmap files in a non-destructive 16 bit processing pipe with Gimp workflow integration and batch mode.

This application's goal is to offer the best algorithms available, although this might imply some redundancy. The app provides flexible and powerful denoise, sharpen and local contrast (fake HDR) algorithms.

Photivo can apply special effects to a picture, view EXIF data, optimize graphics, create and edit layers and convert RAW to JPG.

Photivo features and highlights:
  • 16-bit internal processing, color managed with LCMS2
  • Gimp workflow integration (import and export)
  • Works with RAWs and Bitmaps (8 bit bitmaps are transformed and processed with 16 bit, which usually gives better results)
  • CA correction, Green equilibration, line denoise, badpixel reduction, wavelet denoise, median filters on RAW data
  • Perspective correction (tilt and turn)
  • Demosaicing: Bilinear, VNG, VNG4, PPG, AHD, DCB, mod. AHD, VCD, LMMSE, AMaZE (needs work!)
  • RGB, R, G, B, L*, a*, b*, Texture, Detail, Hue, Saturation, L* by Hue, Base curve
  • Tonemapping (Reinhard 05 (RGB Brighten), Fattal et al
  • Several local contrast filters (HiRaLoAm (Local contrast), texture contrast, local contrast stretch)
