Congratulations to the team! This is great news!
Thank you for such a great project!

New Features from the announcement:

  • Pentax Pixel Shift support, to automatically combine sub-images from a Pentax Pixel Shift raw file into one high quality image, with support for automatic motion detection and masking.
  • Support for processing any sub-image from raw formats which support multiple images. Currently up to 4 sub-images supported.
  • Dynamic Profile Creator to automatically generate per-image custom processing profiles by merging existing processing profiles based on image metadata (Exif).
  • New command-line executable “rawtherapee-cli(.exe)” to reduce startup time for command-line operations.
  • HaldCLUT paths are now relative to the HaldCLUT folder as set in Preferences. This enables you to share PP3 files easier.
  • Auto White Balance now has a Temperature Bias, letting you make the automatic temperature warmer or cooler.
  • LCP correction works for raw and non-raw files.
  • LCP distortion correction support for fisheye lenses.
  • Certain tools are now hidden or disabled if the loaded image does not support them, e.g. the tools in the Raw tab are disabled when working with a non-raw file.
  • Improved fit-to-window zoom functionality of the main preview in the Editor tab.
  • New Fast Export option to downscale the image before processing, to increase speed.
  • Custom crop ratio.
  • Automatic monitor profile detection also in Linux.
  • Lens information support added for Panasonic cameras.
  • Support for lossy DNG files.
  • Support for compressed Fujifilm Bayer raw files.
  • Support for compressed X-Trans raw files.
  • Support for Sigma sd Quattro DNG raw files.
  • Added DCP profiles for accurate color for:
    • FUJIFILM X100S
    • LG Mobile LG-H815 (LG G4)
    • NIKON D300
    • NIKON D300
    • NIKON D5600
    • NIKON D80
    • NIKON D810
    • OLYMPUS E-M1MarkII
    • Panasonic DMC-GX85

Thank you @gaaned92

It seems that GTK+ 3.18 leads to RT freezing for some users, so I would like to replace the 5.1 installer on our website with this 3.22 one. Could someone confirm that this Windows 64 build installs and works fine?


Installed just fine. Haven’t tested the program yet.
The 3.22 version also allows for more themes.


Great job this soft, but local adjustments (brushes, masks) are still missing.

(Rick Davis) #10

I also downloaded the 3.22 version. I noticed it seems to open quite a bit faster on my W 10 computer.
Also just wanted to say thanks to all the developers that make this software awesome, thanks!

(Sebastien Guyader) #11

The Gtk 3.22 builds being well supported now, I’m updating my MSYS2 installation, dropping Gtk 3.18.

(Morgan Hardwood) #12

The build on our website now uses GTK+ 3.22, build from @gaaned92 (repackaged).

We need more informations. Please have a look: http://rawpedia.rawtherapee.com/How_to_write_useful_bug_reports


For your information, RawTherapee 5.1 will be available in the repositories of Mageia 6 that will be released this month. I tried it in Mageia 6 RC and it works flawlessly.

(Morgan Hardwood) #16

@lebarhon could you let me know of the installation steps for RT5.1 once it’s available in Mageia? I’ll add that info to our Downloads page if necessary.


Mageia has its own software manager called rpmdrake. The help to use it is there for Mageia 6 :

Just enter the first letters of RawTherapee in the search box and and hit Enter :

Anyone wanting more information can ask me.
