Supported photo file formats
PhotoLinker uses Phil Harvey's ExifTool [queensu.ca] to read and write metadata from photos. Most file formats listed on the ExifTool homepage as having "R/W" capability are therefore also supported by PhotoLinker.
If your raw file format is not supported, one possible workaround is to convert to Digital Negative [adobe.com] (DNG) format. The DNG format is designed to be an open, unifying format for raw files.
Although CRW (Canon Raw) is listed as a "R/W" format on the ExifTool [queensu.ca] homepage, the file format does not support EXIF and geotagging [wikipedia.org]. CRW files will work with PhotoLinker, but will automatically use an XMP sidecar file rather than write directly to the photo.
