Re: Not happy with Canon RAW files

Windows 7 requires the Microsoft Camera Codec Pack in order to work with RAW files, but it hasn't been updated since April 2014. Because of that, Windows 7 does not support the M6 RAW files.  Microsoft's recommended solution is to upgrade to Windows 10.

As an alternative, I recommend trying the free program, Irfanview. It doesn't rely on Microsoft's codecs, but uses it's own. You can open the CR2 files, and then convert them to another format that you can edit in Affinity.

After installing the main program, you must also download and install the plugins pack (which contains the codecs).
