Adobe Adds New Support For X-Trans Processing

Adobe adds better support for processing Fujifilm X-Trans Raw Images in Adobe Camera Raw 9.1

There was an interesting thread going on over at FR today about Adobe working closely with FujiFilm to improve the way it decodes X-Trans. 

This means two things:

1. Iridient Developer may lose its edge over Adobe as an X-Trans photo processing beast.

2. Now when bloggers that don’t know what they’re doing compare FujiFilm cameras to other cameras using Lightroom and Photoshop, the comparison will put Fujifilm in a better light. 

I’m personally excited to hear this news. Iridient Developer is an absolutely fantastic program for processing Fuji RAW files and its noise reduction and sharpness processes still go unmatched. But adding simplicity to my workflow is always welcome.

I’ll start working on a new article that compares Iridient Developer to Adobe Camera Raw 9.1 to see how it holds up.
