    Couldn't see Raw Images in CS$

    I could never see the RAW images when I went right to CS4. I had to go to Bridge or LR and view them first. I just found this on another site.


    Microsoft Pro Photo Tools provides a set of tools for photographers to perform various tasks with their images—including RAW captures. The current version enables you to quickly geotag your photos, view and edit metadata, and more, leveraging the power of Windows and Microsoft Live Local.

    New in Microsoft Pro Photo Tools 2

    * Support for reading and writing metadata to/from XMP side cars so that metadata will interoperate with Adobe products. This is in addition to reading and writing from the file.
    * Users can convert from RAW to JPEG, TIFF, and HD Photo using "As Shot" settings. This includes the ability to resize the image.
    * Users can view actual RAW image in addition to thumbnails
    * Support for 64-bit Windows
    * Support for international locales
    * Improved UI for geotagging

    RAW support

    By leveraging the Windows Imaging Components (WIC), we're able to provide support for any RAW file format (in addition to TIFF and JPEG) for which a codec has been developed. And that includes most RAW file formats. Not only can you view your RAW images within Pro Photo Tools, you can also update metadata—including GPS coordinates—directly in the file. The updated metadata is stored within the RAW file, not in a cumbersome "sidecar" file. (For information on obtaining codecs for your RAW images or other file formats, visit Codecs for Windows.


    and the Sony Codec:

    Supported cameras: 828, R1, DSC-R1, DSC-F828, DSC-V3, Alpha DSLR-A100, Alpha DSLR-A200, Alpha DSLR-A350, Alpha DSLR-A700
    Supported RAW formats: .ARW, .SR2, .SRF
    Supported OS: Windows Vista (32-bit)
    Supports metadata writing: No


    There's also a RAW thumbnail viewer for Windows XP, but not sure of it's compatibility... or what OS you're on these days? Smiley

    You should be able to see the RAW images in CS4, both 32bit and 64bit, I checked.
    Obviously it's easier to browsw them in Bridge or Lightroom.
