NEW IMPROVEMENTS

  • Debayering – The algorithms have been improved to increase the amount of micro detail while reducing aliasing, yielding photos that are noticeably crisper with less color artifacts.

  • Noise reduction – Improvements to reduce large noise from very high ISOs. Automatic hot-pixel removal has been added, and green and purple color aberration reduction has improved.
  • Sharpening – The sharpening algorithms have been improved to enhance micro details and provide sharper initial results.
  • Panorama – The panorama merge dialog now does a better job with vertical panoramas as well as really large ones. It can now stitch together up to 25 photos at a time. Blending of photos to compensate for differences in exposure and white balance have been improved.
  • Preview Quality – The preview window has been improved to more accurately reflect the details and sharpness in photos at different zoom levels.

NEW FEATURES

  • NEW Import – Get photos from your camera to your computer, choose where you want the photos to go, assign metadata, and more.
  • NEW Tethered Shooting – Get your photos to your computer instantly and apply import settings. Currently supports Canon and Nikon.

  • NEW Custom Sorting – This option in Browse allows you to put your photos in any order you choose.
  • NEW Batch Rename – Rename all of your photos in a batch to add unique information to filenames.
  • NEW Edit Capture Date – Adjust date and time on your photos so they match the actual date and time they were taken.
