If you think this is "just another RAW converter", you're in for a surprise. Photo Ninja is truly special, with unique capabilities for improving and optimizing your digital images. Click on the items below to learn more about this powerful tool, and read why serious photographers are adopting it into their workflows.
The Photo Ninja software may be downloaded and installed free of charge. However, the Render and File Save operations are disabled unless you purchase and install a license key, available through our online store.
- Improved browser performance on network drives. On both Mac and Windows using SMB network shares, we're seeing much better browsing responsiveness with 100Mb/sec wireless connections, and browsing over a gigabit wired connection feels similar to a local drive.
- Support for high-DPI/4K/5K/Retina displays, with display-dependent scaling of fonts and controls and full-resolution rendering of images and thumbnails. Images are crisp and detailed, while fonts and controls are comfortably legible.
- Support for color management on external monitors. If you move Photo Ninja from one display to another, it will automatically update the display color profile.
- User interface refinements. The UI look a little more polished, and there are some new options for displaying thumbnails in the browser.
- Updated camera support, including Sony RX1Rii, A7Rii, FujiFilm X-Pro2 (only uncompressed files at the moment) and X70, Olympus PenF, Panasonic G7 and GX8, Nikon 1J5 and P900, Canon 1200D and T5
- Bug fixes.
- Several changes to the browser to improve performance with large image collections on network drives.
- On Mac, switched to a much more efficient mechanism for enumerating folder contents. (Windows was already optimized.)
- Color-coding of subfolders performed in background to reduce delay when expanding a folder
- Option to start browser in local Pictures or home folder instead of previous browse location, to reduce startup delay for a slow network drive
- Some other tweaks of the browser internals
- Offer option to do a hard delete if "Move to trash" function fails on a network drive
- Added a "Duplicate" command for image files
- Fixed a regression in processing of some Sony file formats
- Reworked the arrow cursor to better fit native Mac & Windows cursors and to reduce pixelization
- In license dialog and license verifier, added some text to better explain implications of the end of the one-year upgrade period. (There has been some confusion about this.)
- Add option in General Preferences to disable mouse wheel zooming, to improve usability with over-sensitive Magic Mouse
- Handle 12-bit uncompressed images for Sony A7Rii
- Recognize builtin lens for Nikon P900
- Fixed a possible crash when the browser gathers metadata for sorting. (If the crash ever occurred, apparently it was rare.)
