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 hard drive.

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 from here:

Microsoft image viewer

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.
