Model numbers have not been included as this upgrade supports almost every digital raw camera file in existence. However, camera manufacturers produce new formats very quickly. We will try to update the plug-in as often as possible to incorporate new formats. So if you find a camera raw file that will not thumbnail or view, send a sample file and the details about the camera to Laura Shook, and she will test and get back to you ASAP!

The Options dialog (Options | File Plug-ins | Digicam Raw plug-in) includes these options:

Load embedded JPEG or thumbnail for. Select functions for which you wish to use any available embedded thumbnail or JPEG image. This speeds loading for these functions. By default, everything but "viewing" is checked. Note that batch conversions and quick conversions will never use the embedded preview.

Load 16 bits per channel. (Available in ThumbsPlus 7.0 and later only). When viewing, converting, or batch processing, the plug-in will provide 16 bpc (48 bits per pixel) images.

Rotate based on EXIF orientation. (Available in ThumbsPlus 7.0 and later only). ThumbsPlus will automatically rotate the image based on the contents of the EXIF orientation field.
