Microsoft post RAW thumbnailer and viewer

 
Microsoft has today made their RAW Image Thumbnailer and Viewer PowerToy available for download. This utility provides for viewing of Canon (CRW & CR2) RAW and Nikon (NEF) RAW files as well as TIFF images and other standard image formats (BMP, GIF, PNG, JPEG etc.). The utility is split into a Windows XP shell extension which provides preview / edit / print commands for RAW files as well as a RAW viewer application. It weighs in as a 47 MB download!
 
  • High image quality. This software uses the camera vendors’ own processing libraries to provide the highest possible image fidelity for RAW images.
  • Superior color fidelity. Windows Image Color Management (ICM) is used to render images in the correct color space as determined by the photographer when the image was captured.
  • Familiar user experience. This software builds on the familiar Windows user experience and requires little or no learning curve.
  • Performance tuned for rapid previews. The software uses background processing and other techniques to ensure a good preview experience even for large images.
