Retouching with Perl
Some Like It Raw
Digital SLR cameras, such as the Nikon D70, will store your images in raw format on request. Of course, doing so consumes vast amounts of card space, and you will need to install the Ubuntu gimp-ufraw package to allow GIMP to handle the raw data.
Although GIMP can read the .nef formatted raw data, it can't actually store files in this format, which explains why picfix changes the file suffix to .png shortly before writing to tell GIMP to save the results in PNG format.
