Name: Iridient Developer
Mac Platform: Intel
OS version: 10.6 or higher
New option to specify custom aspect ratio contraints for cropping.
A new preview display option has been added to the Preferences dialog and View menus to allow use of nearest neighbor interpolation when viewing the image in the preview window at greater than 100% scale. Nearest neighbor will produce a slightly sharper preview appearance and some prefer it for its ability to emphasize artifacts that may be produced by some processing, such as sharpening. The smoother Lanczos based method used in prior versions will tend to better match the final upscaled output when using higher quality interpolation methods on export.
Support added for RAW images from the Canon 5DS R and 5DS.
Support added for RAW images from the Nikon D7200.
Support added for RAW images from the Samsung NX500.
Support added for RAW images from the Olympus SH-2.
Support added for RAW images from the Panasonic DMC-TZ71.
Support added for ORI format RAW images created by the Olympus E-M5 Mark II when using the high resolution mode and shooting RAW+JPG.
Improvements made to the v3 Luminance and Luminance Grain Smoothness noise reduction processing, particularly for images that have very high incidence of speckle type noise in the deep shadows.
The v3 Color and Color Aliasing noise reduction filters are now applicable to to monochrome processing and applied prior to monochrome conversion. In some cases use of Color noise reduction can give radically reduced noise levels with monochrome conversions, especially those based on RGB channel mixers.
Now supports the full 64 megapixel output for high resolution mode ORF images from the Olympus E-M5 Mark II. Previously high resolution mode RAW images were automatically downsized images to match the 40 megapixel output used by the camera for its JPEG conversions.
Decreased the minimum scale size for preview display to 1% from the previous minimum of 5% which allows extremely large images to be viewed at smaller sizes and on smaller monitors more easily.
LittleCMS color management libraries updated to version 2.7.
Fixed some of the Extreme Highlight Recovery parameters for Fujifilm X-Trans 200% and 400% DR mode images. Extreme Highlight Recovery when set to levels above 25 should now work much better with images shot in one of the extended DR modes.
Fixed an issue with the "Custom Tone" monochrome conversion method which would result in strongly overexposed output.
Fixed an issue with the Threshold adjustment option in the Unsharp Mask sharpening method which resulted in very dark (mostly black) output if the Threshold was set above zero.
Iridient Developer (was RAW Developer) is a powerful image conversion application designed specifically for OS X.
Iridient Developer gives advanced photographers total control over every aspect of their digital camera's output, yet still provides easy drag and drop conversion convenience and access to basic adjustments for the casual user. Iridient developer supports RAW files from over 400 digital camera models.
