The ability to shoot RAW is found on most advanced and professional digital cameras. With a RAW image file, no processing is done by the camera (such as sharpening or white balance). This gives total control to the photographer when he or she post-processes (edits) an image. The RAW format is not used widely and it can not be opened by every image editor. It can take longer to process on your computer.
gPhotoShow Pro does its best to display a well balanced image however it is possible that some adjustments are needed, gPhotoShow Pro offers controls to improve images appearance.
To enable raw files support you need to download and install an additional component, you can find it in the gPhotoShow Pro Download page
If supported by the camera gPhotoShow can automatically rotate vertical images, unfortunately only some cameras are able to detect orientation and write the appropriate information in the file. For other cameras you need to use the image properties window and set image rotation for each image that needs to be rotated.
