Annotate supports the following file formats:
- PNG – PNG images are converted to JPEG and you have to save the annotated image under a new name
- RAW formats supported by Annotate:
- Nikon Raw: NEF, NRW
- Canon Raw: CR2, CRW
- Adobe Digital Negative: DNG
- Pentax Raw: PEF
- Sony Raw: ARW, SR2, SRF
NOTE: RAW, PDF and PSD formats are available in paid version of Annotate Expert only.
PDF documents version 1.4+ are supported. You can annotate the first page of the document. This is usable for diagrams (large A0 pages created e.g. by architects) exported as a single page PDF.
Important: To open any of the supported raw file types, you need to obtain a WIC (Windows Imaging Component) compliant raw codec. You can get a codec to open raw files from your camera vendor’s site, e.g. Nikon Raw coded from here: http://www.nikonimglib.com/nefcodec/
You can also use a generic raw codec pack that will support all the above mentioned formats, e.g. the FactPictureViewer WIC RAW Codec Pack that can be obtained from here: http://www.fastpictureviewer.com/codecs/
You need you have WIC (Windows Imaging Component) installed. WIC is present in WinXP SP3, Windows Vista and Windows 7 by default. In case you can not open RAWs in Annotate, you probably need to download and install WIC separately from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=8e011506-6307-445b-b950-215def45ddd8&displaylang=en
