I just discovered that IrfanView opens my Sigma Merrill files.   Is there a .jpg file embedded inside the Sigma files?


ACDSee and FastStone also "open" X3Fs. I use these progs to check what to download from the cameras.


The older X3F files SD9/10 have a medium size preview which is fleetingly visible in SPP while the "real" file is being converted. They also have a small thumbnail image embedded. No full size JPEG though.

Photopad opens those older files, as does ACR and also Picasa.
