First of all - thanks for a great piece of software. I am about to move
all my data to shotwell soon. Well - there is still one thing (for me)
to go... TIFFs...
Yes. I know that there is this issue:
but as far as I can see it's not receiving much love (if it's not true -
please let me know! It would be awesome if this could be fixed in "0.8,
which will appear some time in December"), but I am kind of confused.
I have a Canon camera. I shoot in RAW mode and have files like this:
ike at macbook:~/Pictures/20100914/Test$ file *CR2
IMG_8851.CR2: TIFF image data, little-endian
IMG_8852.CR2: Canon CR2 raw image data, version 2.0
ike at macbook:~/Pictures/20100914/Test$ ls -l *CR2
-rw------- 1 ike ike 9974438 Nov 14 16:26 IMG_8851.CR2
-rw------- 1 ike ike 9951470 Nov 14 16:26 IMG_8852.CR2
Of course shotwell imports the "real" RAWs just fine. I'm not good at
images formats so I am not sure if it's really TIFF or not.
FWIW eog shows TIFF without a problem.
Anyway - if you could tell me when TIFF support is coming (or if it's in
your timeframe at all) that would be great. Eventually I'll try to find
some tool to convert TIFFs to RAW.
Kind regards and keep up good work,
