Hello Folks,

Yesterday I decided to download my first raw converter...looking for one "Free"...I selected the Raw Therapee 2.2...which I discovered that with my new computer works "Extremely" slow, took me to adjust this attached photo near 3/4 hour...with so many possibilities...I got confused + till I saw the change by Histogram or visually the photo... comparatively with my 3 years Picasa...NO comparability in speed & easy to manipulate.:?

After that was imported, from the Raw Therapee to my Picasa photo organizer as JPG...NOT PEF, I PP again with the Picasa & here is the results?

The photo was snapped today before commence to rain...

Any constructive input is as always welcomed...:idea:

Enjoy,

Peace,

Alex 007:|

Hi. Alex;

Nice looking photo. I have been trying out Raw Therapee as well, and it is a bit slow. but I find that if I keep the preview window size at 1:4 or 1:3, it speeds things up quite nicely. Most changes show up within a couple seconds on my 2Ghz computer.

I like being able to store the processing setup for any number of lens and lighting combinations. Once I get it all set, I should be able to just choose the appropriate profile, and most of the work will be done.

Again any input is as always welcomed!
