RawTherapee 5.7 Released plus a new website!

So RT opens the DNG, but the film negative tool is not available, correct? Can you post the problematic DNG file?

I guess it is an already demosaiced DNG file…
Film negative tool works only for bayer and xtrans files

Ah yes, the scan dual is a film scanner, not a camera.

Yes, you are correct. I ask my friend for some files.

As stated above, the film negative tool only works for Bayer and xtrans files, e.g. if you’re shooting your film with a DSLR camera.

You are probably right. The film scanner is not a bayer.

Maybe it makes sense to post this in the tool description?


The new build, along with website updates, is (are?) live.



As on my W10 PC, I cannot succeed to make the RT plugin work, could you answer thoses questions please:

  • where you download GIMP: from official GIMP.org, Partha’s build, other.

  • do you have environment variable “RAWTHERAPEE_EXECUTABLE” set
    expected answer:no

  • in the registry do you have those key values set to RT executables paths:
    \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\rawtherapee.exe
    \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\rawtherapee-cli.exe
    expected answer:yes

  • in your PATH environment variable (system or user), do you have the path to RT executable
    expected answer:no


1./ I’ve downloaded GIMP 2.10.12 from GIMP.org (gimp-2.10.12-setup-3.exe - this is the latest one and think the only one now available @ GIMP.org - downloaded directly NOT via BitTorrent).
2./ I used to work with Partha compilations (2.8, 2.10.8/2.10.10/2.10.12) which are great and supported with more plug-ins etc, but now’ve decided to uninstall it and using only the .org compilation.
3./ Try to download RT5.7 from links placed by Carmelo_DrRaw
4. Try to, after installing RT, reinstall GIMP

5./ @Morgan_Hardwood
Im not sure if updated (corrected) compilation is the proper one at download link on the RawTherapee download site.

I’m not sure if updated (corrected) compilation is the proper one at download link on the RawTherapee download site :frowning: (may be it is only my impression but I’m not sure if the “old” one is replaced with the new, corrected one)

Thanks @fotomak
1- I tried with Gimp.org build, doing 3./ an 4 ./ with no avail
2- I verified that the RT answers correctly to rawtherapee-v -w

In december 18, after some corrections it worked ok on my PC.

So I am trying to understand what is different in my configuration and yours.

So could you answer my other questions please?

1./ Answer to both: YES
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\rawtherapee.exe
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\rawtherapee-cli.exe
2./ I haven’t set environment variable to RAWTHERAPEE_EXECUTABLE means: NO
3./ PATH environment variable: NO

Thanks @fotomak . I have to search elsewhere :anguished:

Thank you!

np :slight_smile:
may be reinstall windows if nothing helps

That seems the very last move :scream:. I am not ready for that

Don’t do that!!!

Hi, thanks for the v5.7 release but I cant see a download for Mac, I can find the v5.6 install.
When do you expect to make the v5.7 available?
