I have a 30D, I want to see CR2 RAW thumbnail images in WinXP Pro Explorer. I have CS4 and Bridge and I know that I can use Bridge to see these thumbnails but there are many times when I'm using XP Windows Explorer and want to see thumbnails. I've done several searches for this and haven't found a definitive answer.
Some people suggest Microsoft RAW Viewer, I downloaded it but it does not support the 30D.
Some posts say that Windows Live Picture Gallery will do what I want. I downloaded it, the CR2 files in Explorer still do not show up with an image.
Some people suggested Faststone Viewer. I downloaded it and it seems like a nice little app but I don't want a separate app to view these thumbnails, if I wanted that I'd just use Bridge.
There are times when I really want to see image thumbnails in XP Explorer, so far I haven't found a way to do that. Any other suggestions would be great.
