RAW File

68 posts in this topic

I have had a camera in my hands since my 9th birthday, 50 years ago. I only recently converted over to digital, with a Nikon Coolpix L15 and Nikon D40X. I've had fits tryin t ofind plain english help getting started with Corel PaintShop Pro, and Adobe Photoshop Elements. This plug-in worked first try, and the help here puts the 'pro's' to shame. I really appreciate the help, the plug-in, and the can-do attitudes of everyone here. I've spent the last 3-4 hours digging around the forums and tutorials reading and picking up advice and tips. Simply put; "Thanks to all here".

:shock:

Not working on NEF files created/saved with CaptureNX on Paint.Net v3.5.1.

"There was an unspecified error while opening the file"

Thanks chris

If you're using the demo version of CaptureNX, once edited with the software you can only open and edit them in CaptureNX. So I doubt the error is in the plugin.

Definitely NOT using a demo version of CaptureNX.

Reinstalled and works fine. Thanks

I get the same problem. just import that RAW files type and restart paint.net doens't work.

it just show up that you have that type of file to load but can't load it?

I think we have to use the source code, right? but how to use it as I am not programmer.

Anyone can successfully use this plug-in?

What is the 3 x RAW plug in for choice?

Hi,

I am now getting the "There was an unspecified error while opening the file" error when I try and open a .CR2 file from my Canon EOS 500D.

Plug-in previously worked for me. I am running PDN v3.5.2 (can't remember which version it last worked with).

No processing on images between camera and PDN. I also run Picasa 3.6 on this computer, which can read the image fine.

Cheers

Neil

dcraw.exe is stored in the resources plugin. This file is copied to the AppData folder.

Probably doesn't work on 64 bit?

The other RAW file loader used both dcraw.dll and dcraw64.dll.

And yes I know a 64 bit app can launch 32 bit .exe

but I just have to ask if there is maybe another issues.

Is there a RAW plugin more recent than July 2009? I am having the same problem as previous posts. Can see the RAW file on the open window but get the "unspecified error while opening the file." message. The file can be opened with "dcraw.exe" as a command. (Windows XP and paint.net 3.5.4)

Just because a plugin is more recent, doesn't mean it'll work better for you. Try some of the older ones.

what are .raw files for??

RAW files are digital Negatives from a digital camera (DC).

Normally, when you take a pict with a DC it will be saved as JPEG, meaning that you can no longer influence lightintensity and more.

It does take a bit more space on the card in the camera, but this fileformat also gives you the chance to create HDR pictures, insteead of the normal LDR pics that come form cameras.

Not all cameras have the raw format as a possibility, mostly the more advanced ones do, I have a canon 50D and a 7D and those support CR2 format. (one of the RAW formats)

Hi,

Untill recently, I was able to import RAW images (from dslr cameras) without any problem using the RAWFILE plugin.

However, after updating PDN to v3.5, PDN still recognizes the file types, but I get the error message "there was an unspecified error while opening the file".

I saw more people were having this problem, but no real solution was proposed.

Also, reinstalling or trying other plugins (raw converter, rawloader, rawload, and rawreader) do not work.

Has anyone a clue what to do???

Cheers,

Rob

RAW Files are just that, raw files.

Most digital cameras offer the possibility to store pictures in different formats.

While doing that one loses some info, (Like JPEG pictures).

Storing pictures in RAW format keeps all the information available, downside is that the stored pictures are MUCH bigger.

The advantage is that you have the possibility to create any type of effect on the pictures and safe them in a different format.

I use RAW all the time for the purpose of being able to give effects to my pictures.

I downloaded the raw file to paint.net effects. How do I use it? I go to open a file, and my org files do not even show up as an option; only my jpeg/pdn/gip/etc files.

RAWFile.dll needs to be installed in the File Types folder.

Not in the Effects folder.

This is a dcraw based raw file reader plugin for Paint.NET.

Hi.

I have downloaded both plug ins, unzipped them, moved it to the dll file types folder in PDN, and unblocked the file (properties). I have read somewhere that when I click on file in PDN, I should see something about 'import' in order to open a raw file. I don't see any import option on the drop down menu. (I'm trying to open nef files.)

I have unzipped the file called dcraw , however I have not tried to copy it across to anywhere yet. The unzipped file is called RAWfile and in that folder I see a sub-folder (Properties) and several other files. If I have to use this plug in whereabouts in the PDN program folder does it go?

Thanks

Tried all RAW plugins found on this forum. Only one that works ir RawReader. But one big issue - instead of 3136x2352 it opens file in 1625x1225 resolution. Yes, it detects proper resolution, but opened file is smaller! :(

So, this far, I can't use RAW on my camera.

Post your problem in the RawReader thread and the author might have a look at it for you.
