Los Angeles, Calif. - Jan. 25th, 2019 - The software giant Microsoft announced releasing Windows 10 Build 18323 (19H1) to the Windows Insiders yesterday. Now it is available in the Fast ring. The focus of this build is to bring improved support for the RAW image format. It is now possible for photography enthusiasts to view this image format directly. Curious if there are any other new features or improvements in Build 18323 (19H1)? Read on to learn more about it.
Below are the major improvements and new features in Build 18323 (19H1).
If you like taking pictures in RAW image format, this should be good news for you. In Windows 10 19H1 Build 18323, you are able to view image thumbnails, previews, and camera metadata of previously unsupported raw files right in File Explorer as well as viewing your raw images at full resolution in apps like Photos or any other Windows app that uses Windows Imaging Component framework to decode raw images.
