RawShooter essentials 2005 - Superior image quality
"Our goal in designing RawShooter essentials 2005 is to provide users with superior image quality as well as the fastest workflow ever experienced by digital photographers shooting in RAW formats", said Michael Jonsson, CTO and Chief Software Architect of Pixmantec. Pixmantec CEO Kenneth T. Laerke adds, "It is our belief that the vast majority of digital photographers today have limited use for generic graphical software tools. Hence, it is our ambition to publish easy-to-use, one stop photographic applications enabling the digital photographer to process their images and get them to their clients and/or share them with friends and family as simply as possible".
Pixmantec RawShooter essentials 2005 - Astounding result
Pixmantec executive consultant, professional wildlife photographer, Andy Rouse says, "In anuary this year, I took over 6500 images in the Falkland Islands, which would have taken me months to edit previously. Using RawShooter essentials 2005, I edited this number down to 1000 images, prioritized the 100 best and converted them to their final format within two days of my return, something that I’ve never managed to do before. The quality is astounding; several clients have commented on it already and photographers were 'stunned' at the quality of the huge 3 meter images on display at ?Focus on Imaging. At the end of the day getting great quality images in the time pressured environment we live in is what really counts."
