Title: Help: Preview currently does not support this raw file format
Post by: MAS Productions on July 14, 2012, 05:05:49 PM
That's the message I get when I try to open raw photos taken with my Canon S100.

Any suggestions?

What version of Mac OS X are you running, and when did you last apply a digital camera RAW update?  Preview has no problem opening my S100 RAW files.

I'm running 10.6.8

I tried to do another update to digital camera raw, but got this message: "This update provides support for Aperture 3 and iPhoto 9 only."

I can preview all other raw images, just not the ones taken with the S100.

Two things to try:

1) Download an older version of the Camera RAW update, maybe it doesn't require iPhoto9 or Aperture 3.  Update 3.9 was the one that added S100 support.  http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1473 (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1473)

2) Try the steps listed here (http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=6010.msg116276#msg116276).

Thanks for the tips. Unfortunately, the first link does require iPhoto9 and Aperture 3. And the trial version of Aperture is no longer available.

When I clicked the link, the Aperture 3 trial started downloading...

That's odd. Nothing downloads for me. I can only click on the "Buy Now" option.

If it's important, I suppose you could just buy the iPhoto update. That's pretty cheap, although it's still annoying to have to do that…
