Extensis today announced an update to its Pro Photo Raw Image Filter for Portfolio 7, which enables professional photographers to read Raw data from image files of leading digital SLR cameras. With the Pro Photo Raw Image Filter, Portfolio generates high-quality thumbnails and previews from the unprocessed raw image files created by professional digital cameras from Nikon, Olympus, Kodak, Canon, Fuji, Konica-Minolta, Pentax and Imacon. With the Pro Photo Raw Image Filter, Portfolio 7 can extract EXIF metadata and IPTC from the Raw files, create thumbnails for displaying the images in catalogs, and generate high-resolution JPEG previews on the fly for detailed viewing, printing, slideshows and QuickTime movies. The software will be available by Q4 2004 free of charge for registered Portfolio 7 users.
