My first picture edited with my new workflow and 100% software!
As RAW converter was used and for selective editing was the programme of choice. My OS is of course ๐Ÿ˜„
I deleted Windows with all my products three months ago... And it was a good decision! ๐Ÿ˜…

@zwerg12 I'm glad to see someone trying to ditch Adobe! I often hear "Adobe is the standard, you cannot use anything else". Uhm, sure you can if you try. It won't be the same but that doesn't mean it would suck.

@tapaniraja Yes, most people say that but haven't tried anything else. I worked 6.5 years professionally with Adobe but I ditched Photoshop 3 Years ago and used GIMP even though people say that GIMP is so much worse. BUT there are Open Source GIMP Plugins like GMIC and Resynthesizer and these makes GIMP a killer tool!

@tapaniraja Lightroom was much harder to replace!
LRs user interface is SO easy and simple and the results are perfect with just a view clicks.
I tried Darktable but struggled a lot to realise my goals and it was much to slow. For professional editing it was not fast enough in my opinion.
But then I tried RawTherapee again and after 2 weeks reading the documentation I understood how to use it correctly. The results were awesome. One day later I deleted my dual boot Windows ๐Ÿ˜‚

@zwerg12 Amazing photo! I'm also in the process of discovering how to manage and process photos on Linux. Will have to checkout rawtherapee!

@tomek Thanks! I really really love RawTherapee! I normaly shoot weddings. I have used it for the last 4 weddings and I think it's an awesome piece of software. It takes a few images and some months of trial and error but after about 7000 images I am definitely as fast as I have been with Lightroom. And the Linux integration is excellent. One click and your pre processed photo opens with gimp.
