Photomator and Pixelmator Pro add compressed Fujifilm RAW support

Updates to both Pixelmator Pro and Photomator have just dropped, bringing support for compressed RAWs from more than 20 Fujifilm cameras, including the highly-requested X-T5 and X-H2 models. The updates also include the ability to open and edit compressed and uncompressed RAWs from the brand-new Fujifilm X-S20 model. This is an incredibly exciting milestone for us – for the very first time, we’re bringing support for RAW formats that aren’t natively supported by Apple!

While Apple devices offer support for many popular RAW formats, the increasingly popular compressed Fujifilm RAWs are currently not supported on macOS and iOS. As a result, you cannot preview or edit these photos on Mac, iPhone, or iPad. To address this, we’ve developed a brand new RAW pipeline, letting you open and edit compressed Fujifilm RAWs in Pixelmator Pro and Photomator. By using Apple’s RAW engine as a foundation, we ensure that this implementation remains entirely native, meaning that working with compressed Fujifilm RAWs will be just as smooth as working with any other image format. You can nondestructively adjust colors, crop photos, remove objects, and even use Shortcuts and AppleScript to batch edit them or batch convert them into Apple-supported image formats. The compressed Fujifilm RAW support is also not limited to Mac – you can open and edit these RAWs on your iPhone and iPad.

List of compressed Fujifilm RAWs supported by Photomator and Pixelmator Pro:

X-T2, X-T3, X-T4, X-T5, X-T20, X-T30, X-T30 II, X100V, X100F, X-E3, X-E4, X-H1, X-H2, X-H2S, X-S10, X-S20, X-Pro2, X-Pro3, GFX 50R, GFX 50S, GFX 100S.
