i find the controls in ufrawfor gimp rather basic

i usually just adjust the colour temperature if i think its needed then save the file which opens it in GIMP as a raw file

then do editing in there using the normal controls

levels, curves, unsharp mask etc

i have tried rse too and get diferent results from both programs

(that is most likely the fault of the user though )

edit; i think once you switch to raw you will not go back.

I think you may well be right there Robar, unless I am mistaken, the quality when shot in raw is far superior to when you shoot in jpeg so the final result after conversion is better, plus, am I right in thinkign if you crop while still in raw, the cropped image is better quality too?

Hope I am making sense there, sometimes not very good at wording things! lol!

The main advantage of RAW is that you have a chance to correct most of mistakes you've made while taking your picture.
