    If you're firing in RAW, it's a plugin (UFRAW) not GIMP that processes it first. The original WB is set by that plugin then it's sent into GIMP.

    So if you're wondering how to automate WB from RAW look under UFRAW discussions. I personally use my Digital Photo Professional (bundled with my Canon) for WB/color adjustments and that can be "preset" before exporting into JPEG for use in GIMP.

    Cheers.

    Sorry, still not sure how to configure the D40 to shoot without auto white balance...
    Can't seem to locate the settings as I can only select White Balance, Cloudy, Tungsten etc under White Balance field.
    Thanks to advise.

    Thanks for your reply. Haha, never shoot in RAW b4 as I haven't reach that stage yet. I was just wondering if GIMP can allow me to choose 1 type of white balance for that particular batch & updated all the photos together...

    select any setting preset, daylight, cloudy, shade, tungsten or whatever, these ALL are not auto white balance.
