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.

I've used Iridient Developer as an alternative to Lightroom when I want to recover the entire image captured by the sensor on cameras where lens correction is applied in software. I recently purchased a Canon G7X, and was pleased to see that the beta of version 3 includes support for this new camera. I was surprised, therefore, when I opened a RAW image in Iridient Developer at the default "camera aspect ratio" setting and there were fewer pixels than in the accompanying JPEG from the camera. Even at the "maximum" setting, Iridient Developer gave me fewer pixels on one side of the image than the camera gave me in the JPEG, and I assume Lightroom will give me when support for the G7X is added. I might have paid the upgrade fee (40% discount, which means USD $60 to upgrade), but not if I can't get all the pixels that the sensor recorded.

Gorgeous film like rendering makes this the go to raw converter for difficult images and I often use it to compare the quality of other converters. The new dot release now supports DNG profiles which is a feature I use for nearly every image (in Lightroom. ). I still use LR 90% of the time and 100% for my DAM but now and then, I have to feed a raw to ID and I'm always very pleased by the results. Developer is very responsive to suggestions. If processing raw files is part of your livelyhood, the upgrade price isn't an issue one lick.

Version 2 is worth the upgrade. The upgrade price is now a more reasonable $45 (and the full price of the app is now a more reasonable $75). For me, the big selling feature is the addition of controls to correct chromatic aberration (which the previous version was missing), as I have a couple of images with bad CA that I could not satisfactorily convert with the previous version. I can still process images from my Olympus and Panasonic cameras without applying the lens correction information that's included in the raw file (and that other apps like Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom apply automatically). And it looks like for some lenses I would be able to apply a lens profile with the built-in chromatic aberration correction but without the built-in distortion correction, but so far none of my lenses offer me this option (the check box for CA is grayed out). The reason I'm only giving Irident Developer 4 stars instead of 5 is that it doesn't offer any localized adjustments. All adjustments apply to the entire image.

Though RAW Dev is still by far the best raw processor, the high upgrade price is too steep imo
