Extensis Releases Pro Photo Raw Image Filter for Portfolio 6
Free filter powered by Bibble Labs enables professional photographers to manage Raw image files from leading digital SLR cameras.
Extensis today announced the immediate availability of the Pro Photo Raw Image Filter for Portfolio 6. The new filter -- a free upgrade for registered owners of the company's award-winning Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution -- allows photographers to preview, sort, and archive camera-native images without having to first convert them into another format.
With the Pro Photo Raw Image Filter, Portfolio can generate high-quality thumbnails and previews from the unprocessed raw image files created by higher-end digital cameras from Nikon, Olympus, Kodak, Canon and Fuji. Portfolio can also extract EXIF metadata from the raw files and generate slideshows of the images.
"Adding support for these raw formats makes Portfolio an ideal tool for professional photographers," said Joseph Schorr, senior product manager, Extensis. "Photographers can now go directly from camera to Portfolio, where they can preview, keyword, organize and sort thousands of images without getting bogged down in a lengthy conversion process."
Many pro-level photographers produce digital photos in raw format because this format preserves 100 percent of the color and tonal range data captured by the camera's light- sensitive computer chip in an uncompressed, lossless form. Raw files can serve as digital "negatives" or master images that can later be converted into more standard formats (such as TIFF or JPEG) with a variety of tools that give the photographer control over how the original data is ultimately rendered.
The Pro Photo Raw Image filter for Portfolio is powered by technology from Bibble Labs, one of the leading developers of raw image processing software.
"Combining the power of Bibble Labs' raw image processing technology with the photo-management tools already in Portfolio is a powerful combination," said Eric Hyman CEO of Bibble Labs. "This is something that pro photographers really need and we're pleased to help Extensis build a premier tool for the pro photo market."
Registered owners of Portfolio 6 are eligible to receive the Pro Photo Raw Image filter by updating their current version of Portfolio to version 6.1.2 for Mac OS X and 6.0.3 for Windows through the Extensis website at http://www.extensis.com/updates.
