UFRaw-Assist project will use the command-line batch facility of UFRaw, to apply raw conversion on a batch of similar images.
The raw conversion can either be done on the basis of the options in the UFRaw-Assist only, an existing *.ufraw ID file created from one of the images or a "standardized" configuration file previously created.
UFRaw-Assist uses the new wavelet noise reduction facility that is being adapted for UFRaw by its creator, Udi Fuchs, on the basis of the original DCRaw by Dave Coffins. For this it is necessary to use the CVS version of UFRaw or version 0.12 when it is released.
Images can be converted to several file formats and sharpened with IM's unsharp mask facility. If so required, a web thumbnail can be generated with selected framecolors and text annotation.
UFRaw-Assist works either through a Konqueror servicemenu (select group of raw files, right-click and choose "Process raw image") or as a drop-target on the Desktop (drag and drop raw files on the desktop icon).
