Wildlife and nature photography hints and tips
Viewing RAW images in Windows Explorer
One of the quickest ways of getting your
RAW images from the memory card into a new folder is to select
them in Windows Explorer ( RIGHT Click on "My computer"
and then LEFT click on "Explore") and drag/ drop them
from the memory card location into a new file on your computer
If you want to be able to look at thumbnails
of RAW images you may be frustrated that they do not appear -
as Windows Explorer cannot read RAW files - unlike TIF and JPegs.
Recently Microsoft released a RAW image
viewer which solves the problem for Windows XP users. It is available
Windows Explorer defaults to icon view,
so to view the thumbnails once in Explorer, you will need to click
View > Thumbnails - and there they are.
