Ohanaware has announced HDRtist NX 2.1, an update to the company’s High Dynamic Range Imaging software that provides128-bit image processing utilizing multi-core processors and accelerated graphics hardware.

(you can also create and share your own). Version 2.1 focuses on improving color rendering, single RAW support and integration with Apple's Photos software.

Cisdem has updated Duplicate Finder Mac to version 4.8.0. It’s a utility tool that can detect and delete duplicates from external and internal hard drives to free up the space. 

The new version adds a refined user interface and improves the capability to remove duplicates in iTunes and Photos. It also solve the “unable to set Photos” library path issue and fixes some bugs.
