RAWFile LAB - RAW File reader with optional dialog window

Recommended Posts

operamint    5

A fast configurable RAW File plugin.


Another raw file reader using DCRAW. The raw image will be loaded immediately, but can be reloaded with modified parameters if desired. The dialog window:

  • Allows to edit nearly all parameters from DCRAW.
  • Shows white balance multipliers, darkness, and saturation (returned from DCRAW).
  • Shows Metadata output from DCRAW for the last image loaded in

When minimizing the dialog window, it will stay minimized when opening more RAW files. You may disable the dialog window entirely by removing or renaming RAWFileLAB.exe, and it works just as the other RAW file plugins (only slightly faster and supports every raw file format). The configuration files are located in the <my documents>\ User Files\FileType Presets\RAWFile folder.



Supports 23 raw file extensions - tested with samples from link at bottom

  • Raw files: .3fr, .arw, .cf2, .cr2, .crw, .dcr, .dng, .erf, .kdc, .mdc, .mef, .mos, .mrw, .nef, .nrw .orf, .pef, .raf, .raw, .rw2, .sr2, .srw, .x3f
  • Recently added: Nikon (.nrw), Aptus (.mos), Hasselblad (.3fr), Kodak (.kdc and .dcr), Panasonic (.rw2), Samsung (.srw), Minolta (.mdc)


  • Get latest 64-bit dcraw.exe from the link below. Rename dcraw64.exe to dcraw.exe.
  • Drop dcraw.exe, RAWFile.dll and RAWFileLAB.exe into the FileTypes plugin folder.
