Iridient Developer overview

Iridient Developer (was RAW Developer) is a powerful image-conversion application designed specifically for macOS. 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 800 digital camera models.

  • Support added for RAW images from the Panasonic DC-GH7, DC-S9, DC-G9 II, DC-S5 II, DC-S5 IIX and DC-GH6.
  • Support added for RAW images from the Fujifilm X-T50 and GFX 100S II.
  • Support added for RAW images from the Ricoh GR III HDF and GR IIIx HDF.
  • Support added for RAW images from the Leica SL3 and D-Lux 8.
Improvements:
  • Updated DNG color and white balance default metadata to match up with the latest Adobe DNG Converter 16.4 release values.
  • Deflate compression libraries updated to latest version (libdeflate 1.20).
  • PNG export libraries updated (libpng 1.6.43).
  • JPEG export libraries updated to new version (libjpeg-turbo 3.0.3).
  • Updated to the latest OpenEXR libraries (3.2.4).
  • Updated to a more recent libraw version (2024-05-30).
Bug Fixes:
  • Thumbnails now properly update when editing images.
  • Fixed pixel shift processing support for Sony RAW files created by some recent firmware updates that change metadata values for these files.
  • Fixed automatic chromatic aberration correction for some images from the Fujifim X100VI (and earlier X100 variants) which would result in some color fringe appearing along the edge of the corrected image.
  • Fixed an issue with macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) that would cause flickering of the image preview when making edits.
  • Fixed crashes when using the Adobe lens correction profile (LCP) for the Leica Summicron-M 35mm f2.

I just tried Iridient Developer 3 after reading good reviews. I ran some raw files from my Fuji X100v through it and immediately realized how much better this software is than literally anything else out there. I use all the adobe stuff as well as DX0. I used Capture 1 but found it clunky, overly complicated, and not very good at processing raw files. That whole deal with the little "worms" showing up on Adobe software is resolved now that resolution is higher. Cutting to the chase I bought the whole program so I can also run raw files from my Sony A7c. The one think I'd like to see is a grain option. The tonality of black and white conversion is excellent but grain would be a cherry on top. An excellent product and well worth the $100 I just dropped.

last reviews are from 2015 ?! and I'm even not ready to try it for $100. Make it competitive to GraphicConverter, then I try.

Absolutely 5 Stars app - ID does some unique things that help image quality that you will not find elsewhere. Examples: - sharpening - this has multiple state of the art sharpening algorithms at your disposal that rival or exceed other leading raw converters (C1, DXO, LR, ...) - noise reduction - works really well - monochrome conversion - one of the few apps (besides AccuRaw Monochrome) that applies a different de-bayering algorithm specifically for monochrome (again with 2 choices of preference, including smooth tonality) What it doesn't do (yet): Missing the powerful color wheels of C1 (to be fair, no other app does those). Missing convenience features from LR (e.g. automatic perspective correction). Missing local adjustments (= if you're using ID, you still need an image editor, e.g. Photoshop, to finalize processing all of your images to your satisfaction. With LR, arguably you could try and get by just with the raw converter). ID doesn't try and do DAM (asset management) and I would score that as a positive. The half assed capabilities in some other tools only slow down my workflow. ID is focused and fast, I hope it stays that way.

Iridient Raw Developer got excellent image sharpener. Other than that, very high price for what this software is all about. The CaptureOne cost $29.00 for Sony camera users and easily surpass Iridient Raw Developer with futures aimed to professional photographers. If Iridient Raw Developer will lower price it may turn more photographers attention and interest for purchase of this IRD software.
