Can Vista show thumbnails of my RAW files
In a discussion about RAW usage and the perils of Vista, a question came up about Vista's ability to show thumbnails of RAW images.
Interestingly enough, Microsoft has an answer to this. Check out the download section of Microsoft's Pro Photo site. Most of the popular Canon and Nikon cameras are supported, as are Sony, Pentax, and Olympus. Vista should try to resolve this problem automatically. But, if it doesn't or can't for some reason, download and apply the correct codec and enjoy RAW support throughout Vista.
