    Win 7 64bit and PEF files

    Well I am finally sitting in front of my brand new PC running Win 7 64bit, and it doesn't recognize the Pentax PEF format

    The Pentax site does have some software, but it only supports 32 bit - can anyone shed any light?

    Cheers,

    Matt

    The only option is Adobe Camera Raw/CS4 which supports PEF
    Or one of the other viewers in 32 bit mode

    So there is no way of viewing previews in the desktop window?

    Matt, also for note. The 64 bit version of Photoshop is great, but there are quite a few plugins from third parties that will not work in the 64 bit version of PS. On your system in the adobe folder you will have Photoshop (64 bit) and photoshop.exe., the second being a 32 bit version, for use in need. Of course this all assumes you are using PS.
