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]
