I have only image retouch (if you allow me to say that) in piccassa.

Now that with chdk I am able to get some RAW files where do I start.

I want to use "FREE" software only (GIMP / Rawtherapy are top of my list)

I think of few activities but do not know if the sequence is correct.

1. Remove Noise

2. Adjust brightness / colors using curves.

3. Sharpen image

4. Remove unwanted items from the frame (corp)

5. Touch up. (clone tool)

6. Convert to jpg.

Can any one help correcting the sequence.

YNDE$@!

I would move sharpening to last and if a large crop is anticipated do it before adjusting brightness/contrast levels or using curves

1. Remove Noise
2. Rough crop
3. Adjust brightness / colors using curves.
4. Remove unwanted items from the frame (corp)
5. Touch up. (clone tool)
6. Convert to jpg.
7. Sharpen image
