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.
I got RawShooterPremium working on a Wine 0.9.3 compiled with the debug flag on. On my Gentoo using GCC 3.4.4, this translates to the following USE flag: USE="+X +alsa +arts +cups +debug +esd +gif +glut +jack +jpeg +lcms +ldap -nas +ncurses +opengl +oss -scanner +truetype +xml2" Please note that I am working with an alternative WINEPREFIX (="~/Work/wine/winersp as I maintain a zoo of different wineprefixes, a different one per application). Then I can: - install RSP - register my installation when I am connected to the Internet - open images, edit them - see images as a diaporama (works better if RSP window is not magnified) - view exif data - generate raw files
What does not
My previous testing was with the debug flag off, and then I could install RSP but not start it up. I got: - a bus error when launching from the wine command - a failure with no return code when launching from the winelauncher. With the new installation flags: "Sometimes", or "once in a while", or "once in a twice" - I have seen no clear pattern, here - I get a "General extraction error, Location ES1" on starting up RSP. Generally, waiting a few seconds and starting it up again works fine... Then, as annoying points: - I cannot get RSP to list any "RGB working space", when defining the profile for the output files. I have copied profiles in windows/system/color and windows/system32/color, to no effect - though this does work with Picture Windows Pro - Tab and ctrl-Tab are not recognized anymore, although they were on the first use of the installation!! - I am not able to copy or paste corrections selectively (no individual correction is selectable).
What was not tested
- Camera other than the Canon S45 I own - saving settings for an individual camera - generating softproofs - but raw conversion does work! - testing with profiles other than sRGB, as I cannot see them.

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.
