    And by the way, I use Linux. Fedora 10, to be precise.

    Nope. Got other better reviewers on-line. How many photo editors are portable?

    I don't use all the software listed here. I only consolidate them for references and need to rely on others to tell us which are usable.

    The portable editors are listed on the first page.

    While I have very good results with Hugin for pano stitching. I do not seem to have the same level of results for HDR with Picturenaut and Luminance HDR. I have not been able to have a very natural looking blend with high dynamic range. Do you guys have the same result or I am not doing something right? I am now using Photomatix but the HDR effect is too pronounced. Any HDR expert here can advise how to make natural looking HDR?

    Who says Open Source = FOC? Who says Open Source must support all platforms?

    You only pay for the hardware if you don't buy it on your own. Software download is free and linked on the website.

    Let me contribute one free panorama editor which I have used successfully. Unfortunately it doesn't work on RAW files, but it does support 16-bit TIFF.

    hi

    you should also consider listing linux free software if someone contribute them. But for this one, I am not sure, because I'm not sure if one can benefit from the software without paying for the hardware.

    linux is not that difficult to use, even little girls are using it. try ubuntu.com , the installation is so easy, and lots of GUI..

    I am aware of Linux. At this point, it does not look they will go mainstream. People are more interested in the free stuff on Android and iOS. Let's just keep this to the Windows users for now. Plus I am sure those gurus who are dabbling in Linux will know what they are doing. This thread is more for the everyday people like me.

    Pocket Light Meter :

    Is a good tool for iPhone owners who need a quick reflected light meter while photographing wth SLR/DSLR. it Measures reflected light, and allows reciprocity calculations.

    Forgot your bubble level and have an iPhone ?

    Clinometer HD - bubble level and slope finder:

    With this tool, the slope can be measured by all edges of the device in every direction. When the device is put flat on the table a bubble view will fade in.



    and it tells you which direction to move. I found it awesome so sharing. Not sure how long it will be free though.

    DOF calculator for IOS devices : Brought to you by Nikonians.org

    Description

    Depth of Field (DOF) and Hyperfocal Distance are two very important items when it comes down to getting the right amount of blur or sharpness depth in your shot. But how can you calculate these easily?

    We Nikonians have had a great article written by J. Ramon Palacios (jrp), the “Depth of the Field(DOF) and Hyperfocal Distance” also containing a Depth of Field and Hyperfocal Distance calculator.

    Using this app one can easily calculate all these important figures and effectively improve the photography results.
