RAW Developer is a powerful RAW image processing and conversion application designed and optimized specifically for Mac OS X. RAW Developer gives photographers complete control over their digital images and provides flexible, fast and easy to use batch processing. All image editing operations are entirely non-destructive and never modify your original RAW images. All image processing operations are performed at 16 bits/channel or higher bit depth for maximum image fidelity. RAW Developer offers many advanced features to enable you to achieve outstanding image quality from your digital camera.

  • Improvements:
    • Greatly improved highlight recovery when using some DNG Camera Profiles (DCP files or embedded in some DNG images), especially those that include color lookup tables.
    • Stronger, more effective Highlights (Neighborhood Adaptive) and Shadows (Neighborhood Adaptive) processing, especially for the higher end of the adjustment range.
    • No longer using the embedded DNG camera profiles by default for some of the recent Leica models (SL, T and Q). The embedded camera profiles do not seem to be well liked by many so I have now switched to my own custom ICC profiles for these models, the manufacturer's embedded profiles are still available in the Input Profile menu.
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Worked around an issue introduced in Apple's Mac OS X 10.11.4 update when using the Highlights (Neighborhood Adaptive) and Shadows (Neighborhood Adaptive) adjustments. On Mac OS X 10.11.4 the brightness would jump greatly at a certain level when using either of these adjustments.
    • Fixed an issue with the Iridient Reveal and High Pass sharpening methods where zooming in to high magnification, typically 300% or more, could cause the sharpening to not be applied correctly and in some cases the preview would also be very dark.
    • Fixed a bug with several of the monochrome conversion methods which could result in the appearance of white speckles in very dark regions, particularly when using negative values for the Brightness Shadows or Brightness Midtones adjustments.
    • Fixed a crashing bug with RAW support for some old Canon models, mostly from 2007 or earlier models (original 5D, 1Ds, ...).

    • Improved default RAW camera profiles for most recent Canon, Nikon and Fujifilm models.
    • Processing speed improvements for Iridient Reveal and High Pass sharpening methods.
    • Processing speed improvements for v3.5 noise reduction, especially for slower dual core laptops (MacBook (Air)).
    • PNG format export libraries updated to most recent release (libpng 1.6.21).
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Canon S-RAW and M-RAW formats are now working properly for the EOS 5DS (R) models.
    • Fixed default exposure levels for intermediate ISO values above ISO 3200 for recent Fujifilm X cameras.
    • Fixed incorrect 35mm focal length EXIF metadata in exported images for some Fujifilm fixed lens models (X100T, X100S, X100, X30, ...).
    • Fixed issue where previously set image resizing options in the Save dialog would be applied to images saved using Process Image and Overwrite. Image resizing is not applicable when overwriting an original image.
    • Fixed an issue with loading settings/preset files for Phase One backs which used both monochrome channel mixers and custom camera tone curves.
    • Fixed broken RAW support for some very old Olympus compact cameras (C5050Z, etc).

What is new in version 3.0.7:

  • New Features:
    • Support added for RAW images from the Leica M (Typ 262).
  • Improvements:
    • PNG file export libraries updated to most recent release (libpng 1.6.19).

    • Support added for RAW images from the Sony RX1R II (DSC-RX1RM2).
    • Support added for RAW images from the Leica SL (Typ 601).
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Fixes crash on load with some DNG images converted on import by recent versions of Adobe Lightroom. Fujifilm X-Trans cameras in particular seemed to be a common model impacted.
    • Fixed issue with the handling of clipped highlights with the DxO ONE and some DNG format images that used gain map opcodes (for example X3F Tools conversion).
    • Fixed issue with random serial number validation failures which mostly seemed to impact serial numbers issued in October 2015.
    • The Olympus Stylus 1s now includes a proper RAW camera default. In prior versions this Olympus model defaulted to generic camera values.

What is new in version 3.0.5:

  • New Features:
    • Support added for RAW images from the Sony A7S II (ILCE-7SM2).
    • Support added for uncompressed RAW images from the Sony A7R II (ILCE-7RM2).

    • Now includes an Apple Photos editing extension to provide functionality similar to "external editing" in Lightroom and Aperture with Apple Photos on Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan).
  • Improvements:
    • Found a workaround for an issue with Apple's RAW processing library on Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) which results in severe color posterization when using Apple RAW based conversion on 10.11.
    • All DNG v1.4 opcodes are now supported, previously only supported lens corrections and bad pixel opcodes. Fixes issues with some DNG images that used gain map opcodes in particular (for example DNG images from the DxO ONE and Kalpanika X3F Tools DNG conversions of Sigma X3F images).
    • TIFF file export libraries updated to most recent release (libTIFF 4.0.6).
    • JPEG file export libraries updated to most recent release (libjpeg-turbo 1.4.2).
    • PNG file export libraries updated to most recent release (libpng 1.6.18).
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Fixed bug with support for the Panasonic DMC-FZ300 and DMC-FZ330 models.
    • Fixed issue with RAW black level handling for some Fujifilm RAF images from non X-Trans models, in particular the Fujifilm X100 but other models may have been effected as well.
    • Fixed issue with highlight recovery tint correction processing that could occur with some ISO 50 NEF images from Nikon cameras, particularly uncompressed NEF files from the D800 series.
    • Fixed an issue with the "RAW" channel mixer monochrome conversions with some medium format backs, including Phase One and Leaf, that use a non linear gamma correction as part of their default camera tone curve and ICC profiles.
    • Fixed an issue with Sigma X3F monochrome output where the "Foveon Monochrome XDR Soft Look" RAW process option would result in color rather than monochrome export.
    • Fixed a bug with use of the LittleCMS color management engine where black point compensation was not properly handled when using the relative colorimetric intent. This could result in a slight increase in black levels and a slight loss of contrast in the deep shadows when using LittleCMS color management and the relative colorimetric intent.
    • Fixed an issue with DNG linear format images that use different white level values for each color plane (for example Kalpanika X3F Tools DNG conversions of Sigma X3F images).

What is new in version 3.0.4:

New Features:

  • Support added for RAW images from the Sony A7R II (ILCE-7RM2), RX100 IV (DSC-RX100M4) and RX10 II (DSC-RX10M2).
  • Support added for RAW images from the Canon G3 X.
  • Support added for RAW images from the Panasonic DMC-GX8, DMC-FZ300 and DMC-FZ330.
  • Support added for RAW images from the Olympus AIR-A01.
  • Support added for RAW images from the Ricoh GR II.
  • Support added for RAW images from the Kinefinity KineMAX 6K.
Improvements:
  • Further refinements to v3.5 noise reduction, particularly for RGB based monochrome conversions. Lowered the lowest (value 1) sensitivity levels for Color, Color Aliasing and Luminance Grain Smoothness adjustments when using monochrome conversion.
  • Improved default ICC color profiles for RAW files from recent Canon full frame models (5DS R, 5DS, 5D III, 6D, and 1D X).
  • Improved default ICC color profiles for recent Sony ILCE models (7 and 7R).
  • Improved default Leica Q (Typ 116) color profile.
  • Enabled automatic lens corrections for Leica Q (Typ 116) in default settings.
  • JPEG export quality values updated to be more similar Photoshop's 0-100 scale values which also makes them somewhat more similar to Lightroom's values (though Lightroom does not match up exactly with Photoshop either). Results in higher quality, but slightly larger file sizes at same value level compared to prior Iridient Developer releases.
  • TIFF file export libraries updated to most recent release (libTIFF 4.0.4).
  • JPEG file export libraries updated to most recent release (libjpeg-turbo 1.4.1).
  • Adobe XMP SDK updated to most recent release (XMP SDK CC201412).

What is new in version 3.0.3:

    • Support added for RAW images from the Phase One IQ3 80MP, IQ3 60MP, IQ3 50MP and IQ150.
    • Support added for RAW images from the Hasselblad H5D-50c.
  • Improvements:
    • Further refinements to v3.5 noise reduction, particularly for RGB based monochrome conversions. The v3.5 Color Aliasing adjustment is now enabled for use with RGB mixer based monochrome conversions (once again...).
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Fixed issue where some Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) DNG images shot with compression turned on would be reported as unsupported.
    • Fixed crash on loading of single channel, monochrome TIFF images which do not contain an embedded ICC profile. These images will now default to a generic monochrome profile.
    • Fixed issue with settings files stored using the "Iridient Developer Settings" subfolder location preference option. The settings files were not being properly copied or moved along with the original images when using "Copy Selected Image(s) to Folder" and "Move Selected Image(s) to Folder".
    • Fixed an issue with parsing the GPS longitude and latitude metadata in Fujifilm RAF images geotagged by the Fujifilm Camera Remote application.
    • On Mac OS X 10.6 and 10.7 systems some Leaf MOS images could show brightly color stripes in clipped highlights with noise reduction disabled.

What is new in version 3.0.2:

  • New option to append the Spotlight tag values as XMP keyword metadata in both the single and batch file export dialogs (requires Mac OS X 10.9 or later).
  • New text field added for specifying Spotlight tags in the Batch window (requires Mac OS X 10.9 or later).

  • Support added for RAW images from the Olympus TG-4 and Stylus 1s.
  • Support added for RAW images from the Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246).
  • Further improvements have been made to the new v3 noise reduction processing introduced in Iridient Developer 3. Both the Luminance and Color noise reduction adjustments in particular are now much more effective with some forms of noise, especially in deep shadows and when strongly increasing exposure. The maximum strength of noise reduction has also been increased to give smoother, lower noise output when set to higher levels while still retaining good detail and color fidelity. The noise reduction version is now v3.5.
  • The baseline exposure levels for Pentax K-S1 and K-S2 PEF format images has been changed. The default exposure levels for PEF and DNG should now match much more closely for these models.
  • When copyright metadata is present in the original image the XMP copyrighted flag is now also set.
  • The original embedded ICC profile name for standard format images is now displayed in the Input Profile menu.
  • PNG image format libraries (libpng) updated to version 1.6.17.
  • Canon multiple exposure mode RAW files are now properly white balanced.
  • RAW images shot with Canon EF full frame lenses mounted on APS-C bodies were often overcorrected when using automatic lens correction information from the RAW file.
  • Automatic lens correction metadata is now properly supported with RAW images from the Canon EOS 5DS and 5DS R models.
  • Samsung NX500 "normal" lossy mode compression is now supported correctly.
  • Some Pentax K-S2 PEF format RAW images could causes crashes on load.
  • Fixed issue an issue with parsing some Leaf MOS format image metadata (shutter speed, etc).
  • Fixed bug with Spotlight tags specified in Save not being properly set on exported images.
  • The ICC color profile of external editor images is now properly used when overwriting the intermediate image.
  • Fixed issue with closing or canceling out of the serial number entry dialog which sometimes could cause the application to crash or hang.
  • Fixed issue with loading of some Sigma X3F images that had been edited in Sigma Photo Pro version 6 or later.

What is new in version 3.0.1:

  • New Features:
    • 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:
    • 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.
  • Bug Fixes:
    • 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.

What is new in version 3.0:

  • New Features:
    • New noise reduction processing for luminance and color. The new noise reduction along with previous 3.0 beta updates to RAW processing, clarity and sharpening completes a major overhaul the core image processing for version 3.0 and significantly improves Iridient Developer's already excellent image quality, especially for RAW format images.
    • Support added for RAW images from the Olympus E-M5 Mark II shot in 40 megapixel high resolution, supersampled mode.
  • Improvements:
    • Additional improvements have been made for the preview rendering approximation at smaller scale sizes for sharpening, noise reduction and clarity adjustments on the Detail panel. Noise reduction processing with the new v3 process will extend now below 50% scale.
    • Refinements have been made to the new Iridient Reveal sharpening method which reduces the appearance of speckle noise, in the shadows especially, when using very strong sharpening levels.
    • Improved RAW black level handling for many Panasonic models.
    • Improved RAW black level handling for many Samsung NX models.
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Fixes compatibility issue with Mac OS X 10.6 systems.
    • Fixes image preview centering issue when resizing the image window on Mac OS X 10.6 systems.
    • Fixes issue with color noise reduction where some settings could result in grid patterns appearing when applying agressive post RAW conversion channel mixer adjustments in Photoshop.
    • Fixes an issue with automatic loading of older "rdsf" format image settings sidecars.
    • Fixes an issue with the automatic loading of embedded camera tone curves from Leaf MOS format images.
    • Fixes an issue loading some RAW images from the Samsung NX1 which use 12 bits/channel mode.
    • Fixes an issue where exported Pentax 645Z TIFF images would be mis-identified as RAW format when reloading into Iridient Developer.
    • Fixes an issue with the "preserve luminosity" option for the monochrome channel mixers where some value combinations could give poor or all black or all white output.

What is new in version 2.4.4:

  • New Features:
    • Support added for RAW images from the Samsung NX3000.
    • Support added for automatic lens corrections for distortion and chromatic aberration based on RAW lens correction metadata for all Samsung NX mirrorless models.
  • Improvements:
    • Updated Canon lens ID database with newer lens models and improved identification of 3rd party lenses that may share the same ID values.
  • Bug Fixes:
    • Fixed an issue with loading uncompressed 12 bit/ch NEF with some older Nikon models (D200, D2H, etc) introduced in the 2.4.3 update when fixing uncompressed 12 bit/ch support for the most recent Nikon models.
    • The ICC output profile is now always properly embedded in exported JPEG format images.
    • Fixed a bug that could cause crashes when working with Fujifilm F600EXR RAF images shot in EXR HR mode (likely impacts other EXR compact models too).
