rawtherapee [-o|-O <output>] [-s|-S] [-p <file>] [-d] [-j[1-100]|-t|-t1|-n] [-Y] -c <input>
DESCRIPTIONRawTherapee is an advanced program for developing raw photos and for processing non-raw photos. It is non-destructive, makes use of OpenMP, supports all the cameras supported by dcraw and carries out its calculations in a high precision 32bit floating point engine.
- -o <output file>|<output dir>
- select output directory.
- -O <output file>|<output dir>
select output directory and copy the PP3 file into it.
- use the PP3 processing profile located next to the input file (which shares same name as the input file) when building the processing parameters, e.g.: for IMG001.NEF there should be a IMG001.NEF.pp3 in the same directory. If such a file is not found, the default values are used.
- like -s but skip processing that image if its corresponding PP3 file is not found.
- -p <PP3 file>
- specify a PP3 processing profile to be used for all conversions. You can specify as many -p options as you like (see note below).
- use the default raw or non-raw PP3 file to build the image's parameters (specified in the options file).
- specify output to be JPEG (default). The compression value can be in the range 1-100. If none was specified, the default compression value is 90, balanced subsampling (4:2:2).
- specify output to be uncompressed 8 bit per channel TIFF.
- specify output to be zip-compressed 8 bit per channel TIFF.
- specify output to be 8 bit per channel PNG with a compression value of 6.
overwrite output if present.
You can use partial PP3 files, in which case RawTherapee will set the missing values as follows:
The PP3 file is first built with internal default values;
then overridden by those found in the "default raw" or "default non-raw" photo profile (if -d has been set);
then overridden by those found in the PP3 files provided by -p, each one overriding the previous values;
then overridden by the sidecar file if -s is set and if the file exists;
the time when the sidecar file is used depends of the position of the -s switch in the command line relative to the -p parameters (e.g. "-p first.pp3 -p second.pp3 -s -p fourth.pp3").
AUTHORRawTherapee was originally written by Gabor Horvath of Budapest, Hungary, before being relicensed as free and open-source software in January 2010 and being maintained by a team of people since.
The RawTherapee Development Team comprises of passionate people from all around the world.
