RAW PhotoDesk is no longer updated, meaning that the program will not read raw files from newer camera models. Also, it may not work with 64-bit Windows versions. The program is still useful for older camera models or other file types, like TIFF, PSD, JPEG, etc.
Process Nikon NEF files with Capture-like quality
Using Nikon's own SDK file library (no other programs needed), RAW PhotoDesk will read and process NEF files from practically all current Nikon models (including D2X and D70). Unlike some other programs, RAW PhotoDesk uses all in-camera settings (curves, white balance, contrast, sharpening, etc.). RAW PhotoDesk can even do a few things that Nikon Capture can't, like adding overlay text and create web galleries.
Canon RAW files
Download the Canon support library to read and process raw files (.CRW, .TIF and .CR2) from Canon cameras.
Sigma X3F files
The X3F processing library used in RAW PhotoDesk was developed jointly by Foveon and Polybytes, Inc., and incorporates the same imaging algorithms found in standard Foveon viewing and conversion products. Read the review at www.sd9.org.uk.
RAW PhotoDesk will read Adobe's Digital Negative (DNG) format.
Other RAW formats
Other formats are supported on an as-is basis. The program will read files from many different cameras, but not all. It is highly recommended that you test the program to see if it will properly work with your own files. The program will read many Olympus ORF, Pentax PEF, Minolta MRW, Fuji RAF, and other raw files.
