Windows XP RAW Image Viewer and Thumbnailer

Windows XP

As the name suggests, the free Windows XP RAW Image Viewer and Thumbnailer lets you view Raw images natively from within XP. Here is Microsoft’s take on it:

‘Often likened to a digital negative, a RAW image is the native image format for a growing number of quality digital cameras. Because of the camera-specific nature of RAW files, they are not supported natively within Microsoft Windows. As a result, photographers shooting RAW have not been able to take advantage of the built-in features provided in Windows XP for viewing, organizing, and printing RAW photos–until now.

After installing the Microsoft RAW Image Thumbnailer and Viewer Powertoy for Windows XP you will be able to view, organize, and print photos captured in RAW image formats from supported Canon and Nikon digital cameras.
