Fuji RAF files are bigger than the JPG...cropping!


I'm having trouble viewing my full sized RAF files from my XE-1. Only FastStone shows them at the right size.

Even in Silkypix the RAF file crops to the JPG size. So I cannot convert anything in RAF at full size...the JPG is always cropped on the top and bottom, and on the sides.

See below...

I've done some considerable web searching...but cannot find much about crop/size/display problem.

As I say even the native converter, Silkypix Raw File Converter Ex, does not open or even display for work, the full size raw file...always crops to JPG size.

I prefer the perspective from the RAF vs the reduced JPG size. The wider and deeper RAF files look more to work with and distortions are easy to work with now in PP.

I'm aware there is a workaround in Lightroom, which unfortunately I am on CS4 so the latest raw decoders for Fuji don't work. I've tried Lightroom several times but always take it off my computer.

Can we do an experiment...

Perhaps someone would like to open a Fuji RAF in the latest Lightroom, to see if it shows full image??

Can anyone offer advice?? Or thoughts on this matter? I want my full image file back!!!

Is there a way to work with the full image??

Your advice sought with thanks.

cheers Dave S
