Software manufacturer Macphun has announced an update to its Tonality application that introduces batch processing, free preset packs, as well as Raw support for a wider range of cameras.

The black and white image manipulation package designed for the Mac platform already offers 160 ready-made manipulation and effects settings, but will now offer between one to three extra settings per month, created by a band of professional photographers. The company has four contributing professionals at the moment and will add a new one each month to enlarge the collection of settings users can download for free. Users can, of course, create their own presets using the tools and controls provided and can then share these amoung themselves. Further pre-sets are available to purchase.

The update also brings raw support for owners of Canon PowerShot G1 X Mark II, Fujifilm FinePix HS50 EXR, Leica Q (Typ 116), Leica SL (Typ 601), Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246), Nikon D300S, Panasonic DMC-G7, Sony DSLR-A700, Sony DSC-RX100M3 and Sony DSC-RX10M2 cameras.

The company has also added a link to the 500px image sharing website to smooth the uploading of pictures directly from the program, and has also made it easier to export files to Adobe’s Photoshop and Lightroom applications.

The program is available in three forms, as a standalone application that is priced £15 (though £7.99 until 14th April), as part of the Tonality Complete Kit you get the Pro Version for £48.99, or as part of Creative Kit 2016 with five other Macphun applications for £89.99.
