does anybody know, how to make Windows Explorer in Windows7 32bit to display thumbnails of X3F files? I googled it a bit, and so far I found only one commercial set of RAW codecs for Windows, which includes Sigma X3F. But maybe there is some freeware?
May be I misunderstand your questions.
Sigma's Photo Pro and Silkypix display thumbnails on both 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 7 without trying so does Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3.
But may be you want to preserve the X3F format, then my question is why?
Going jpeg or tiff then using IrfanView (nice free software) can do bulk conversion to thumbnail in a multitude of output formats.
thank you. I know these programs you mentioned, and I know they offer thumbnail preview, too. What I meant was something like the Arcsoft RAW plugin. It adds to Windows Explorer the feature of displaying thumbnails of X3F files. It worked fine by me, but on WinXP. Now I moved to Windows 7 Professional, and the Arcsoft doesn't work anymore. What I found is only the FastPictureViewer Codec Pack. According to the description, it should work with Windows 7, but it is commercial only.
thanks, but it says clearly, that... "It's for 64bit Windows only!", so not for my Windows 7 Professional, which is 32bit version (is there at all a 64bit Win 7 Professional?)
Also, are you sure it handles the X3F files?
Andrew....most windows's 7 computers are 64bit....The only 32bit machines I know of are the ones that people upgraded...there window's version...
If that is the case...I don't know...??? Your sorta stuck...like dos and windows 3.1....windows 32bit is a 64bit operating system stuck on an older machine...it works...but does not do anything quite well...
Do a google search...for RAW viewer windows 7 32bit.....and see what comes up...again...I work with mac's....so that's the limit of my help...
