Rawstudio 2.0

Po długim czasie użytkowania Rawstudio w postaci dziennych kompilacji (daily-build), w końcu doczekaliśmy się stabilnego wydania 2.0. Na pewno ucieszy to użytkowników tego świetnego wywoływacza zdjęć RAW, bo oprócz szybkości do której nas ten program przyzwyczaił, zmian jest niesamowicie dużo. Otrzymujemy zatem poprawione demozaikowanie, wyostrzanie, odszumianie, usuwanie hot pikseli, możliwość pracy na dwóch monitorach, zdalną obsługę spustu migawki (tethered), obsługę profili kolorystycznych, obsługę korekcji obiektywów (Lensfun) i tak wiele innych zmian, że aż trudno to wszystko przetłumaczyć przy porannej kawie:
