Summary - Free photo software: 1. Pixlr – a Photoshop-like program, 2. RawDigger – a RAW image analyzer
Is a “Rose-by-any-other-name”
Really still a Rose?
Apologies to The Bard of Avon
I guess so since this didn’t qualify as an abstract
It’s readily recognizable
1. Pixlr makes online, mobile and desktop imaging tools
There are three applications -
Editor provides basic PS functionality including layers
I’d call it Elements Lite
I haven’t looked at the 2nd two
2. RawDigger is a program intended for
Viewing, studying, and analyzing raw files
RawDigger allows the user to:
- View the real (that is, prior to any processing) pixel values in the raw file
- Plot and save raw data histograms per channel for both the entire file as well as an arbitrary rectangular area of the file (selection). The histograms can be saved as graphics or as a table providing for convenience of further external processing
- Calculate the statistics per channel (minimum, maximum, average, root-mean-square deviation) for the entire file
- Calculate the statistics per channel and save the results in a processing-friendly form – CSV, CGATS (for an arbitrary number of rectangular areas of the file)
- Save the compression (tone) curves of raw files in a tabulated form (for cameras and raw data formats where such curves are used).
For those of us with a technical bent
