Windows Explorer, Live Photo Gallery Now Support RAW

We've talked about the importance of shooting photos in uncompressed RAW format before, but Windows never had any official support for RAW, making it mildly annoying to use the format. Microsoft just released a new Camera Codec Pack, however, that supports not just viewing, but editing RAW-formatted images in Windows Live Photo Gallery.You'll also be able to view previews of those files in Windows Explorer. Just download the codec pack, install it, and you won't have to deal with converting those files anymore. Hit the link for more info. [Inside Windows Live]


    Thank god!

    Looking at the supported cameras (Nikon in particular) and it's quite out of date. Doesn't even support the D3100 which has been out for nearly a year.

    Something to watch out for if you have a newer Camera (looking quickly at Canon too and it looks like the same issue).
