Lychee Lychee is a free photo-management tool, which runs on your server or web-space. Lychee is open source, written in php, and attempts to provide a modern photo management interface through a web browser.


Since version 4.x, RAWTherapee is a compelling alternative. Its functionality and the quality of its filters have substantially improved, with 32-bit float processing throughout in ProPhoto RGB, CIECAM if you want that, and huge amount of intelligent features - its automatic chromatic aberration correction is better than anything you can achieve manually in ...


im just starting with timelapse photography as well and since ive had past experience with adobe products I found that after effects work really good and straight forward and if you are shooting raw lightroom is perfect for batch editing them before after effects.


Avidemux is a good tool for this purpose. Open source, free. It is the easiest. Just open the first image from the folder in which you have the sequence. It automatically populates the rest for you! Then you have to export it as video.


You can also use Panolapse. It supports: Panning Zooming Deflicker Autoexposure Fisheye lense It is free for resolutions up to 1280x720.


The answers above are correct, but I'm not sure why one would want to disable this function. All the develop adjustments are stored in the catalog, so if the catalog file crashes you'd lose all your adjustments (other than any exported files you'd made, of course - but these wouldn't tell you what specific adjustments you'd done, they'd only give you a jpg ...


Lightroom always uses a catalog to store your edits, however you can disable the backup notifications. Go to: Edit->Catalog Settings (PC) OR Lightroom->Catalog Settings (Mac) Set: "Back up catalog" to "Never"


Edit->Preferences->General->Go to catalog settings->General->Backup->Never


If you have a Canon camera that shoots RAW, you should be able to download Digital Photo Professional for free from the Canon website. It's good software - I used it exclusively for three years before moving to Lightroom, and I notice that DPP has had some additional tools added to it since then. You shouldn't have to have the original install disks to do ...


@mattdm: According to the MWG specification any handling of metadata dates (Original DateTime, Digitized DateTime, DateTime) SHOULD cause both XMP and EXIF to be updated. But handling metadata properly in most case is a nightmare, mainly because there are a lot of vendors who don't follow official specifications when writing metadata. Daminion doesn't ...


I don't think any significant software which uses this. The EXIF standard is to assume that the time zone matches the correct one for the location where the photo was taken. Most cameras have ad hoc non-standard tags for dealing with this; for example, my Pentax camera sets World Time Location. However, EXIF isn't all there is, and in fact I think most ...
