Below is our recent interview with Nik Bhatt, the Founder at Gentlemen Coders:

Q: Nik, what is Gentlemen Coders? 

A: Gentlemen Coders® is an independent app developer. We develop software for professional and enthusiast photographers. Focusing exclusively on Apple platforms, we offer unparalleled integration with Apple macOS and iOS platforms, maximizing customers’ investment in Apple devices and services. Our products consistently deliver high-quality image processing, innovative workflows, intuitive organizational tools and high performance. Our main app is RAW Power® which is a highly rated photo editor and organizer.

Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?

A: Our most recent announcement combined a new release of RAW Power, our flagship photo editing and organization app, with our Black Friday sale. Our software is 50% off through the end of November. In the most recent release of RAW Power, we added support for two new Fujifilm cameras, the X-T5 and the X-H2. Like most apps on Mac and iOS, RAW Power uses Apple’s RAW decoder. However, Apple has been slow to add new cameras. Through unique technology, RAW Power combines Apple’s excellent RAW processing with much better camera support. RAW Power is a single-purchase, no subscription app, and will always be that way.

Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?

A: RAW Power is both an advanced photo editor and library manager. It integrates with Apple’s Photo Library (and iCloud Photos), but it also supports photographers who use the Files or Finder apps to manage their images. That is a unique feature, as is RAW Power’s ability to rate (and synchronize ratings) through iCloud Photo Library. Some of the advanced imaging tools include Split Toning, Lens Correction, Luminance-based Curves, Fringe Reduction, and HSL Color. RAW Power also exposes the most controls over Apple’s RAW processing engine, which gives photographers unparalleled ability to edit their RAW images. For ProRAW files, RAW Power has Local Tone Mapping as well.

Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?

A: We are working on some amazing new things, but it’s too soon to talk about them!

Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about? 

A: People might wonder how a small company can create such sophisticated imaging technology. Before starting this company, I spent 18 years at Apple. I was in charge of a number of apps there, including Aperture and iPhoto, and I created many of Aperture’s signature features. I also led Apple’s RAW Camera team. That’s why RAW Power has such outstanding support and integration with Apple’s RAW and platform.
