Rawzor brings RAW image compression to Mac

updated 09:15 pm EDT, Thu October 15, 2009

App achieves 20-60 percent compression rates

Rawzor has updated its lossless RAW image-compression utility with support for Mac OS X. The self-titled Rawzor software, in Beta version 0.45, delivers compression rates of 20-60 percent with no change to image quality or metadata. Rawzor promises a complete restoration of the original file on decompression, and Rawzor has an SDK that allows independent RAW processing software to open the compressed .rwz files. The new Mac-compatible version has a core engine fully ported for Mac.

The Rawzor SDK was recently updated with Mac support as well, with support for both 32- and 64-bit applications. With the latest versions, Rawzor-compressed files are supported on Mac, Windows and Linux.

Rawzor supports Mac OS X 10.4 and higher, including Snow Leopard. It is free and now available on the Rawzor website.
