Vivid-Pix Software Now Supports RAW/DNG Photos

If you’re an avid underwater shutterbug that primarily saves your photos as RAW or DNG files, the folks at Vivid-Pix have something new for you.

The company recently announced that its LAND & SEA SCUBA Picture-Fix software now supports Canon, Fuji, Nikon, Olympus, SeaLife, and Sony RAW, DNG, TIFF, PNG and JPEG images.

Vivid-Pix CEO Rick Voight says:

“Photographers, photo instructors, and many pros within the scuba and photo industries love our software, but asked us to support these other file formats . . . and we listened. We then considered how to best help folks learn how to use the software. Who better than Cathy Church, who already teaches photographers, instructors, stores, and dive operators how to get better photos!”

According to Church, underwater photo pioneer, author of six books, countless articles, and owner of Cathy Church Photo Centre in Grand Cayman:

“I was thrilled when Rick asked me to develop his training tutorials. Since before Vivid-Pix was a company, I’ve been amazed at what Randy [Fredlund, Vivid-Pix chief technology officer] has accomplished with the software development — and now by adding these other formats, everyone can enjoy the fun and easy-to-get terrific underwater and topside photos.”

Fredlund said:

“As more and more cameras and photographers began using file formats beyond JPEG, the need to expand the capabilities of our software became apparent. The software programmers rose to the challenge and the resulting software and images tell the story.”

The software, useable on Windows and Mac platforms, is available for free trial and for purchase at Check out the video below that describes the software’s capabilities.
