Photosmith Announces All New Camera Raw Rendering for Apple’s iPad


Photoshop World – Las Vegas, NV – Friday, September 6, 2013 – C Squared Enterprises, developer of Photosmith for iPad, announced today that it will include native camera raw processing in its photography app for Apple’s iPad.

Native camera raw rendering, which unlocks full-resolution viewing of photos in Photosmith for iPad, is being demonstrated in booth #434, at Photoshop World in Las Vegas September 6, 2013.

“Although Apple’s iOS offers compatibility for viewing certain more-popular camera raw files on iPad, there are some pretty significant gaps, especially when working with older and narrowly-supported digital cameras like Leica,” said Chris Horne, Co-Developer of C Squared. “By creating our own camera raw rendering engine, we are able to support rendering of far more cameras, and offer never-before seen compatibility on iPad for both old and brand new cameras.”

“This is really exciting! We’re adding support for over ten previously unsupported camera raw file types covering hundreds of camera models, all of which can now be viewed in full resolution on iPad,” said Mike Wren, C Squared spokesman and Chief User Advocate. “iPad users will no longer need to rely on, and wait for Apple to push an iOS update to unlock support for brand new cameras. This also opens up a tremendous number of possibilities for photo processing in future versions of Photosmith, right on the iPad.”

Native camera raw rendering is currently undergoing final testing and will be be available in the next version as a free update for all current users. A complete compatibility list of supported cameras will be posted on Photosmith’s website at

C Squared released Photosmith version 3 in April, 2013 to universally positive reviews, both in Apple’s App Store and in the tech media. Charlie Sorrel of the popular blog Cult of Mac said in a recent review, “The interface actually makes [adding keyword tags] easier to do in Photosmith than in Lightroom. You can quickly create new tags, make trees or hierarchical tags (People>The Lady) and apply tags to multiple photos at once.”

Photosmith 3 is a free update for all existing users, and is available for a one-time cost of $19.99, or the equivalent local currency.
