I was unpleasantly surprised by the amount of noise in an (admittedly  
high ISO) image I shot in camera raw (NEF) on a Nikon D70.   Cinepaint  
gave me an accurate representation of the noise, which was slightly  
dismaying when I saw what Photoshop Lightroom did in smoothing this  
noise in the lowlights.  However, in the interest of veracity and  
acutance, I prefer knowing what was shot, and now I've been gracefully  
referred to


which page, once viewed, is self-explanatory, and seems to be well- 
supported and received.
And, as noted previously, Cinepaint is open source as well.
