AwesomeBump is a free and open source graphic app written using Qt library. It was made as an alternative to known gimp plugin Insane Bump or the commercial tool Crazy Bump. It is designed to generate normal, height, specular or ambient occlusion, metallic, roughness and other textures from a single image. Most of the image processing is done on GPU so the program runs very fast and all the parameters can be changed in real time.
