IT appears that Panasonic's RW2 RAW format cannot be read by GIMP (which I suspect means it cannot be read by anything not produced by Panasonic just now); does anyone out there have any suggestions?
GIMP itself doesn't read any RAW formats, the plug-in is provided by UFRaw (http://ufraw.sourceforge.net/). It isn't obvious from your post whether you knew this.
UFRaw uses dcraw, and there's a huge list of other decoders listed on that site: http://www.cybercom.net/~dcoffin/dcraw/#others
Hi Folks, Thanks for advice. Unfortunately UFRAW cannot read them it complains of "corrupt data near [hex-address]...
So I'm stumped for now...
Same for me: ...UFRAW cannot read them it complains of "corrupt data near [hex-address]...
Can not wait for the Panasonic LX5 raw format to be supported. Great little camera and this would make it the complete package. Also means I by learning one application can do my Canon raw manipulation as well.
New release of UFRAW released. It reads the panasonic LX5 raw format file now !!!!!! GREAT
From the sourceforge.net (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ufraw/develop) I found the following:
