didnt try this yet, but i downloaded a codec for raw files a while ago and it works flawlessly. i review pics in windows preview before importing them into LR for further inspection

Yea, it lets you view thumbnails and stuff on 64-bit OS's which Canon's RAW Codec still doesn't let you do.

I don't either, but it does help when you just want to browse through your folders using Windows. At least now you can see a picture thumbnail rather than just a generic CR2 Thumbnail and a file name.

Yes that's true , but on the other hand it's easier find jpeg and tiff files without it when using windows . I might try it , I'm thinking I can uninstall if I don't like it .

All my Raw files have the original name out of the camera. E.g. _MG_0001.
Any Jpeg or Tiff will have a more appropriate name making them easier to identify. So finding them won't be a problem.
Not that it matters that much, it's just nice to have. I usually use Adobe Bridge or LR anyways.

Thank you! It works like a charm. I have been looking forever for a (free) way to preview raw files in windows explorer.

I downloaded it and it does not show a difference between RAW , tiff or jpeg . I been doing a lot of shooting using both raw and jpeg and it just shows the image number .

If you just convert your Raw files to a Jpegs without renaming them and keep them mixed together in the same folder/directory, and just look at the thumbnails you won't be able to tell the difference. However, if you click a thumbnail all the file details will show at the bottom of the Explorer window.

I would advise against just converting and keeping your jpegs mixed with your raw files anyways. Not a very good idea, you're just asking for a mess if you do that. But that's what they have Organizational Software like LR for instead. convert, rename, and re-locate.

I understand all that and I do use LR to organize . But I don't use it to download . As I said , I'm shooting both raw and jpeg at this time . So all images(both raw and jpeg) are downloaded into the same file. In ZoomBrowser , the thumbnail will show the image number and what type it is . But overall I like the codec .

I installed it and it works fine. My only complaint is that it still doesn't address PSD files. I can live with that as I have plenty of viewers that do support that.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

PSD Files are Photoshop and can contain multiple layers which might include different images. Which layer would it display in the thumbnail?
