LibRaw API Library

LibRaw API Library - RAW Image Decoder

The free open-source multi-platform LibRaw API Library for reading RAW files obtained from digital photo cameras is based on dcraw.

LibRaw Library is meant to address the needs of raw convertor developers, GUI developers, and those interested in implementing and testing their own routines for certain steps of raw conversion workflow, i.e. demosaicking, color transforms, noise reduction, correction for distortions and aberrations introduced by optics, etc.

The LibRaw Library is also useful for raw data analysis and for the purpose of testing sensors and lenses.

It is a very popular library, used in many commercial and open-source products.
