RawShooterPremium is a high quality RAW image processor for digital photography. It supports the whole RAW workflow from downloading the images off the camera through color / luminosity / contrast manipulation to tilting and cropping. Most of the functionality is extremely powerful yet easy to use.
The Interface takes a while to get used to but then is nicely suited for the task.
There's a rather active forum on all kinds of topics around RawShooter at http://forum.pixmantec.com/ubbthreads.php/Cat/0/C/4.
All the basic image functionality works just fine, sorting, categorizing, and, most important, manipulating and converting raw data.
What does not
There is some strange effects around keyboard shortcuts (alt/ctrl keystate seem to stick at times)
Also, it seems to be impossible to selectively copy image manipulation information.
Most importantly, color management is absent. I've managed to make it use profiles, but of course, those are meaningless in a non-calibrated environment. Can someone please please get X11 there??
Wine Versions 0.9.7 and 0.9.8 showed an error regression, so the version of choice for RSP right now is 0.9.6! Also, the current Beta 71 of RSP 1.0.2 does _not_ work on any tested wine platform.
What was not tested
fast proofing, due to lack of color calibration

if you copy the *.icc files from your /windows/system32/color directory to the current directory at RSP start, you can select them in the program. I can't say how correct the color correction is, though.
I use the following script to start RawShooter using a gnome panel button:
if [ -x RawShooter.exe ]
obviously, this scipt has to be in the RawShooter directory to work ;-)
I've been working with this for a while and experiencing strange issues with RawShooter being unable to read files and suddenly terminating. It seems that this is related to the .icc files, which it repetitively tries to open. I've removed them from the directory again which means RawShooter will no longer embed profiles anymore but at least it works.
