Photivo

Photivo is an open-source photo editing tool written in C++. As a raw image processor geared for advanced users, Photivo allows users to perform various digital darkroom tasks on 16-bit RAW and bitmap images via non-destructive workflows. A wide variety of image enhancing techniques are supported, such as demosaicing, denoising, geometric/perspective distortion correction, contrast filtering, tone mapping, sharpening, exposure, and so on. Photivo supports workflow integration with GIMP, allowing users to import from and export to GIMP via a dedicated GIMP plugin. It also supports a batch mode, where a Photivo’s photo editing can be performed non-interactively via a job file from the command line. Photivo’s GUI is developed using cross-platform Qt framework.
