    Phase one file Browsers

    On the windows platform. What software other than Bridge, Lightroom & C1 are capable of viewing Phase One files for editing purposes.

    Adobe Camera Raw, Irrident Raw Developer and Raw Photo Processor are all capable of processing Phase One raws natively but make poor browsers for editing.

    So yes, Bridge, Lightroom, and C1 3 or C1 4.

    Any other editing software will only be able to view the very low res embeded preview file. Depending on what you're editing this is either useless or of some limited use. For those doing tons of keywording programs like iView can be useful, but again will only show the 450x600ish (or smaller for some back models) preview.

    All that said, why not C1 4? Especially with either training (which we provide) or with enough time with your nose in the manual, this software is INCREDIBLE for editing of large volumes of images. I use it to edit through other peoples weddings (one of my side jobs) and going through thousands of images, applying/copying/spanning adjustments, ranking/selecting/editing, and comparing similar images is REALLY fast. Of course I'm using an 8 core mac which is built for speed (e.g. multiple isolated hard drives).

    Hi Doug,
    I am not suggesting that any of the 3 browsers are not good. I Just wanted to know what other options there might be.

    Well since you are on Windows you may want to check out Microsoft Expression software . Phase One has a strategic alliance with Microsoft and often has software bundles in conjunction with them.

    I am trying to find a link with a detailed description of how they work together.

    Lance,

    They don't work together. I have Expression Media 2 loaded on my Mac and it only shows the tiny imbedded JPEG. None of the magnification or other features which access the main file work. This is with files from my P30+, and sample files that I still have from a P25 & P45+ that we used in Puerto Rico.

    Lance,
    I agree with Ray,
    Unless there is some special handshake I don't know about, it is just a marketing package. Expression just doesn't deal at all well with phase raw files.
