The overall concept is great!

When will you support RAW files? Nikon's NEF's and Canons?

Well done!
I like this app very much, very simple an good looking, definitely a keeper!
But, RAW support is a must. I can agree to the fact that RAW-files are actually to big and clumsy to handle smoothly in a viewer but I must at least be able too view the embedded quick view/thumb nail.inlove

reading RAW preview doesn't take really more time than a big jpeg, if you use the correct SDK for it. If you use Canon SDK it is not a problem, maybe a solution would be for you to implement the WIC windows interface, as now, the WIC codec feature is supported in both vista and XP.
dcraw is another alternative, but the reading is very very very slow.

Hi all,
raw format support is certainly an important feature. Since it is quite an effort to support and integrate it (although there are existing library that we might use) we are thinking about adding it as a non-free add-on, maybe together with some other more advanced features (like basic image editing features).
We would be interested in your opinion about these non-free extensions, would you be willing to pay a certain amount to use a single feature like raw format support or maybe to get a whole package of advanced features?
Best regards

Stephan

I think some features maybe worth to pay a certain amount for. Supporting RAW-files maybe one of this features.
But you should keep in mind, that you'll stay in competition with other free tools for managing pictures. Even Windows Live Gallery supports a basic kind of IPTC - so what's your advantage if not supporting such basic features?
Your innovative UI-engine is really amazing - maybe even reading RAW-files would be incredible fast and worth to pay for.

Keep on your great working! Greets,
SyCon

Edit:
Sorry, forgot some information.
I'd prefer to pay for single add-ons rather then for a whole package. But this strongly depends on what's in this whole package and what's the difference in price :) I don't like to pay a lot for 10 add-ons, if I'm just looking for two of them.

Please, no image editing, but a good image management in the RAW also appears

Just installed Pictomio. Looks great, lot's of functions - BUT no RAW image support. I see this has been a subject brought up on the forums by several photographers like me. It's a bit of a deal-breaker, as, if I can't browse my full collection (all of which are first stored in RAW), then the programme is, sadly, of little use to me. Pity. Not sure what the real problem is - even IrfanView can read RAW. Any signs of it being added?
