This is a real stupid question - sorry.
I put RawFileType.dll, dcraw.exe and RawFileTypeOptions.txt in the Paint.NET FileTypes folder and started paint.net.
Now for the stupid question: where do I find the plugin in paint.net?  I'm using 4.2.12  Thank you

Okay thank you.  I actually dragged the files onto paint.net and they displayed fine.  So I guess my question should have been how do you see each layer in the raw file?  Or are there any specific RAW editing tools in paint.net I need to add?

Is the GUI below associated with this plugin?

 

No, that is a different RAW file plugin.

What do you mean by layers?

All RAW formats that I am aware of contain only a single image.

 

If you are referring to the individual color channels, Paint.NET does not currently have that feature.

The small increase in performance you get coding in C++ over C# is hardly enough to offset the headache of coding in the C++ language. ~BoltBait

Release version 1.3.0.

Changes:

 

Replaced DCRaw with LibRaw's dcraw_emu example program.
LibRaw is more frequently updated than DCRaw, so it should provide improved support for newer cameras.

 

Breaking Change:
The following DCRaw command line switches are not supported by dcraw_emu: -D, -d, -P, -K, -i or -e.

 

A list of the dcraw_emu-specific commands can be found at libraw.org/docs/Samples-LibRaw.html

Thank you for creating this plugin.

It seems somewhat slow in opening files -- even when using the half-size option.

Also, could you please add support for extracting the thumbnail from a raw file? The documentation for the original dcraw states that "You'll get either a JPEG or a PPM file, depending on the camera."

I made a few improvements in the file I/O code that should make the next version faster.

This option is not implemented by dcraw-emu, and the plugin does not support reading JPEG files (only TIFF and PPM).
