Stitching RAW files is problematic. In order to get a good stitch you ideally want to correct vignetting and distortion first, something that you would do in your RAW converter, then just output TIFFs of a smaller size (no need for full size when combining multiple files usually) and things will be both quicker and more accurate.


You could use dcraw to convert raw files to "raw" tiff files that only contain the raw data using the command "dcraw -D filename". The stitching then needs to be done by taking into account the Bayer pattern. This means that you must extract from each tiff file the pixels that belong to each of 3 color channels. You can use programs such as ImageJ, you do ...


PTGui can stitch RAW and DNG images as input. However, remember RAW files do not contain any editing adjustments (such as CA correction, noise reduction, or vignetting correction), so there's not a lot of advantage to be had by going this route, rather than converting your RAWs to TIFFs, and then stitching the TIFFs.

First off, let me start by saying you're not going to like the answer very much... In terms of commercial software, all you really have available is AfterShot.

I've been having good luck with Sequence (for Mac): I've so far only used its more basic capabilities.


I am just adding my two cents to the general question of colorization. Though it reads like you are looking for a technique or program to add color similar to how old movies are being colorized. Personally, when I want to add color to monochromatic, I do the modern equivalent of hand-tinting. Pretty simple process; using Photoshop create a transparent ...


I use GIMP and ImageJ. ImageJ is a free program that allows you to more easily do lower level manipulations on the individual grey values of the pixels than "higher level tools" such as GIMP.


Darktable is a very powerful photo processing tool. You cannot "paint" as with Gimp/Photoshop, but you can apply many kinds of filters in a non-destructive way to your photos. The description from their website expresses the features best: darktable is an open source photography workflow application and RAW developer. A virtual lighttable and darkroom ...


I finally found a tool that works easily without needing to script. Here you go:


Lightroom is everything to everybody if you use the sony image data application you will find the Greens and Blues and read in a different way.
