  • Fujifilm RAF file converter

    This is my first post as I have just joined Retouch Pro.

    I am a Canon user, 5DMIII and 7D11. I am travelling in Europe at present and bought the Fujifilm X-T2 just before we left home as the Canon equipment was just to heavy to carry while travelling.

    I use CS6 and LR6 as I do not want to subscribe to the Cloud versions.

    These to programmes do not recognise the Fujifilm RAF RAW files.

    I would be grateful to receive any advice as to what RAW converter I could use for the RAF files. I have looked at Iridient but it is very slow on my 2012 MacBook Pro, running OS 10.8.5

    Many thanks

    Photoshop and Lightroom can read RAF files natively. Even without subscribing you should be able to check for updates. You can also use Adobe DNG converter, which is completely free. The Mac also natively supports RAF reading as of Sierra.

      Many thanks for your response, Dough.

      I have not upgraded to Sierra and am still using Mountain Lion. I understand if I upgrade to Sierra I will lose the functionalities of Photoshop CS 6 and LR6 as well as NIK. This means I will have to go on the subscription model, which I do not want to do.

      I realise I eventually will have to upgrade my operating system. I tried the RAF files in Affinity Photo but it is extremely slow in loading the RAF files and the highlight and dark area processing of Affinity I believe is still not up to scratch.

      Where are the days when I shot a reel of film, developed it in my dark room and printed black and white postcard size images which I sold to me friends at school!!

        Easy; look into Iridient Developer!

          Many thanks, Andrew.

          I have downloaded Iridient Developer ver 3.1.4.

          Is it different from Iridient X-Transformer beta ver 4?

          Many thanks

            I think X-Transformer, which you might want to check out, is specific to Fuji files.

              This issue will no doubt come up again....

              i recommend Capture One. It does a superior job on Fuji files out of the box (download the trial, open your files and compare). The program is leagues ahead of LR in power. The advanced photo editor tool alone is something special. the algorithms used for the adjustments are superb. Take an overexposed image and do your best to recover it in LR (or whatever) and then use the highlight recovery slider in C1. Or the shadow recovery slider to bring up underexposed areas. Compare it to the best you can do with your current tool.

                Help with XMP files
                by Drmackay
                Forgive me if this has been covered before. I have just started shooting in raw and converting my photos. I am using an Olympus E-510 and Photoshop Elements 8. I have noticed that in the processing of my shots the program develops a separate file (XMP) and saves it along with my original raw file...

                how do you open MOS files?
                by Caravaggio
                Does anyone know how to open MOS files not using Capture One? MOS files won't open in CC camera raw for me. Under get info it says that it is a Leaf RAW image.
                I had a free trial to Capture One, but it expired and I am not eager to purchase it.
                Thanks for your help.

                Raw Files
                by skydog
                I'm sure someone here knows the answer. I have Photoshop CS2. I just bought a Canon 30D. The raw files created by the 30D are not recognized. I've checked to insure my updates are up to date, and the software says they are. Am I missing something?

                100MP Raw Files
                by creativeretouch
                I downloaded sample 100MP Raw Files (IQ3) - and my first question was - "OMG, how long it is going to take me to retouch one image?" What is your opinion?

                Need a "Previewer" for PSD and TIFF files
                by Lucile Davis
                I am looking for something to make searches on my own PC easier. Can anyone recommend software that will preview quickly graphic file images (PSD and TIFF) without opening them, giving a large-size look similar to the Preview slide show feature that Windows offers when one highlights a list of JPG...
