Raw Photo Processor - 3.5.4

Raw Photo Processor (RPP) is a RAW converter, supporting almost all available digital RAW formats. Think of it as of a development machine in terms of film photography - first you have to develop your roll right, then do whatever you want with it. So this is NOT a full featured photo processing package, you will need Photoshop or some other tool to apply sharpness, cropping and so on, but you may use RPP for some very carefully picked amount of operations.
The main idea behind this application is to do quality conversion without blocking shadows, clipping highlights, spoiling colors and returning that natural film-like look to your pictures.

Frictionless - 2.0d7

Frictionless is a to-do list manager in the Getting Things Done style of David Allen. Specifically, it allows you to view your items in both hierarchical form, so that you're encouraged to document "the next action" for all your tasks, and it lets you then slice by the Context needed to do them.

The idea is that when you are processing, you can use the outline view to capture all the things you have to do. Then when you are doing, you can use the contexts view so you only have to see the items you can work on right now.

This bypasses the problem with most to-do list programs in that if you do a complete to-do list, you have 200 items, of which only 20 are presently actionable. By slicing your actions by context, you only need look at Errands when you are ready to run errands.

The new 2.0 version is adding additional ways to slice your to-do list so that you spend the maximum amount of time doing and the minimum amount of time skipping over items you can't quite do at the moment.
