Welcome to our third tutorial on the basics of RawTherapee. Our first installment, An Introduction to RawTherapee – A Free Photography Software Alternative to Photoshop, sparked a lot of interest and you can see the second tutorial featuring some basic editing techniques here.
If you are just joining us, RawTherapee is an open source image management and RAW processing app for Windows, Linux and Mac. Being open source, it is free, but this does not mean that it is any less capable than it’s more expensive rivals. In our last tutorial, we looked at the basics of editing, exposure, shadow/highlights and white balance. Today we will concentrate on preparing your image for output.
We have finished editing our image, now we wish to output the file for printing or for display on the Internet. If you are not already in the Editor window you can get there either by double-clicking the image you wish to work on in the File Browser or clicking the Editor tab on the left of the screen.
