As one of the more vocal requestors for the DNG WIC codec. I want to say
thanks to Adobe for finally getting something out. I have installed it and
seems to function pretty well.
One of the things I noticed was that the thumbnail shown is based on the
built in jpg. It does not reflect any adjustments to the image. However when
you open the file in the viewer it shows the dng with adjustments made. So
if you have adjusted exposure, white balance etc... the viewer shows this.
For fun I went back into LR and had it update the DNG preview for some of
the files and the thumbnails in the Windows Explorer updated
automatically. - Very Cool.
For the final version I would really like to be able to update the meta data
from Windows and have those changes stick into the files. The new geotagging
for Vista is a great example. Being able to adjust star ratings, comments,
captions etc... would also be a big plus.
Now for the truly "wish list" items, what about enabling a lot of the camera
RAW functionality in the adjustments pane of the window. The basic functions
like in the LR library module would be great.
