    thanks Boid, well spotted ... it is indeed about time ... no support for Sigma though unfortunately :frown:


    Just installed it (the 64-bit version) ... it doesn't seem to work at all for ORFs or DNGs ... no images displayed in Explorer as thumbs whether large small medium or extralarge ...
  2. Just downloaded it and it works for my D3100. Shame there are SO many older cameras missing.

    I'll never understand why all the camera makers don't just use the DNG standard.

    Thankyou- it works with Windows Live Photo Viewer, don't think it was intended to bring up thumbnails. But faster than using LR for a quick look.

    The download page does say
    so I can only assume that means as thumbs within explorer.
    i'll have to put a support call in and see what they say;
  6. Totally agree!! Would save so much agro!

    would one of you for whom this is working properly be kind enough to attach a raw file that does display on your systems that I can d/l to test? I'm getting no joy still & I just want to rule out that it's my files that are problematic rather than my system ... thanks
