Rawzor announces a major update to its lossless image compression software that adds support for Apple Mac OSX.

Rawzor compresses camera raw images by 20% to 60% with absolutely no change to image quality or metadata. The original raw file is completely restored on decompression like when using zip. Rawzor's easy to use SDK allows raw processing software to open compressed .rwz files directly.

This release of Rawzor adds support for Apple Mac OSX. "We have successfully ported Rawzor's core engine to Mac OSX and are very happy that this technology is now also available to the large number of photographers using Mac for their daily work," said Sachin Garg, Lead Architect at Rawzor.

Complete list of supported cameras and raw formats, the compression results for each of them, and detailed results comparing with other major compression formats are available on website.

Rawzor SDK for Mac was released a few weeks ago. It supports both 32 and 64bit applications on Intel and PPC platforms. SDK is now available free for 32 bit and 64 bit Windows, Linux and Mac and allows image processing software to open compressed .rwz files directly.

Rawzor for Mac OSX supports OSX 10.4 (tiger), 10.5 (leopard) and 10.6 (snow-leopard) on Intel platforms.
