Raw Therapee v4.0 Binary Downloads for Microsoft Windows

Before I switched to Lightroom, I was one of the core developers of Raw Therapee, and while the old 3.0 and 2.4 are frozen, RT itself is under constant development. Here you'll find current builds of version v4.0 espc. for Windows 64bit. I was happily using Raw Therapee for production. It's a typical open source, never 100% bug free but happy to fix critical bugs if they come along. Please report bugs here on Google Code issues list.

WARNING: These are not the current builds any more. I switched to Lightroom, so I stopped coding and building RawTherapee. Please see the official RT Homepage now!

>>  Raw Therapee 4 end user setups for 32bit Windows

Warning
Don't even try RT 32bit below 2GB of memory. To let it run stable during coversions (which use the most RAM):
  1. Set Windows 32bit in 3GB mode. Look here for how to set it, and here is the full explanation. If XP has problems booting, also add /userva=2900 after /3GB.
  2. Close all other programs
  3. Set RT in Multiple Tab Mode
  4. STOP the RT Batch queue, no Auto-Start
  5. Edit all your pictures, and send then to the batch queue (do NOT save them directly!)
  6. After you're done: close the preview image tab (because open images soak RAM)
  7. Change to a directory that has none or only few images in RT (images in file browser soak RAM)
  8. Then start the batch queue. Do not open any images while processing
  9. Biggest RAM hogs are Contrast-by-Detail, Denoise, Shadow/Highlight in high quality. So do not enable them if your image doesn't need them.

RT works very well with Adobe DNGs, saving disk space and allowing you to add metadata to your RAW, while being long term stable. You can use these tools to convert your RAWs to DNG and also tag them.
Some packages are packed with 7-Zip, which you can get here.
