Extensis Inc. has announced an update
to its Pro Photo Raw Image Filter for Portfolio 7. The updated filter will be
a free upgrade for registered owners of Extensis' digital asset management (DAM)
solution for organizing digital photos, illustrations, page layouts and presentations.

and previews from the unprocessed raw image files created by professional digital
cameras from Nikon, Olympus, Kodak, Canon, Fuji, Konica-Minolta, Pentax and Imacon.
With the Pro Photo Raw Image Filter, Portfolio 7 can extract EXIF metadata and
IPTC from the Raw files, create thumbnails for displaying the images in catalogs,
and generate high-resolution JPEG previews on the fly for detailed viewing, printing,
slideshows and QuickTime movies.
