Re: Hard to believe digiKam does it all

Have you compared it to noise reduction methods in GIMP?

As I said, I never bother with noise reduction. However, digiKam has a big advantage over the Gimp for heavy processing operations, it supports 16 bit per channel editing. The Gimp is still only 8 bit per channel. It can make a huge difference for things like sharpening. I imagine that the same would be true for denoising.

Fuji EXR models, which are not supported well even by Adobe.

Looks like the latest digiKam has support for it:

In OpenSuse the current version of digiKam (using Tumbleweed repos) is 2.6.0. But, 2.7.0 must surely be right around the corner.
