Does PSP XI Support The K10D?

My daughter likes the Snapfire Program for light duty stuff and the PSP XI is reasonable but I can't find the K10D on there as a supported Camera.

Sorry, not yet.

As far I know, only the Pentax *ist D is supported. All other models are not listed. Here is the link I checked. The link was last updated Jan. 16, 2007.

As a follow up I have e-mailed Corel to find out if they will in the near future.

What do you mean? Can it open RAW files? Or once convetred can you work with them?

I have PSPSXI and you can open jpeg files from the K10, you can not open the PEF files. I have not checked DNG but assume no as well. I am still annoyed with PSPXI for eating the EXIF info everytime to make a change.

I did use 9 for a short time. but then jumped to X. I have heard sticking with X is a good idea. I would agree. I am not savy enough to give you specifics. but the couple of things that have ennoyed me make me wish I had saved the money for something else. Don't get me wrong I really like PSPXI but again not sure if it was worth the upgrade for the things I do.

Hi Trog100.

Post processing with PSP9 is pretty much same as the later versions. PSP9 lacks the "wizards" introduced in PSPX.

PSP9 won't upon K10D PEF or DNG RAW files but it would seem the newer versions don't either judging by the other responses in this thread.

PSP9 is more than adequate for post processing JPEG fomat.

Hope this helps.

I am using PSP-X and I have bought PSP-XI when it was on sale (20 bucks after rebate, Retail Box). I haven't installed it yet, because I didn't really want to spent the time and didn't see a reason to do so as my PSP-X is running perfectly.

Now this thing stripping the EXIF: Is this a known problem with this program or is it something that happens on your PC only? Have you contacted Corel?
If this is a bug and they don't fix it, I will probably never install that version and stick with V.10

I haven't followed everything in the thread, but I don't think anyone has mentioned that PSPXI will open K10D DNG files, but they come out totally black, and nothing I've tried finds any detail in them. So either I am missing something or K10D DNGs aren't supported.

Interstingly enough the issue of stripping the EXIF info started after they did a update to the orginall version. If you use the orginal and do not install the 11.11 update you are find. It is known and I laugh as the update was to improve the EXIF info and it actually did the oposite. When you first convert to JPEG it is all there once you save as or change anything the import info is stripped check my thread here for more info.

Sorry had to run and forgot the link PopPhoto.com: PSPX version 11.11 issue - View Post it shows what I could and then could not see. Anyway, not sure if the same is true if you just shot JPEG. I may try a experiment later.

If you don't want to read the link here is what is says:

Anyone find that when the crop a JPG in PSPXI that the EXIF info gets striped to minimul info?

It normally shows this:
EXIF Type EXIF Data
Make PENTAX Corporation
Model PENTAX *ist DS
X Resolution 300/0 dots per inch
Y Resolution 300/0 dots per inch
Resolution Unit Inch
Exposure Time 1/90 sec
F-Number F2.8
Exposure Program Aperture priority
ISO Speed Ratings 800
Date/Time Original 2006:12:08 19:15:27
Date/Time Digitized 2006:12:08 19:15:27
Exposure Bias Value 0
Metering Mode Center weighted average
Flash No flash fired, compulsory flash mode
Focal Length 110.0 mm

Custom Image Processing Normal
Exposure Mode Auto
White Balance Mode Manual
Focal Length in 35mm Film 165.0 mm
Scene Capture Type Standard
Contrast Normal
Saturation Normal
Sharpness Normal
Subject Distance Range Distant view

But if I crop anything it leaves only this:
EXIF Type EXIF Data
Compression JPEG compression

I am using PSP XI version 11.11.

Although I have not yet shot any RAW the open file type list shows both DNG and PEF file formats.

Yes. This is a known problem with PSP Photo XI. According to my last email with Corel support, Corel is looking into the problem and should fix it in a future update.

I use CS2 for most of my editing and it tends to be faster, but there are a few things that are easier/faster in PSP XI and I've been using PSP XI for that reason. I hope they fix the EXIF problem soon so that I don't lose the EXIF info for images that I edit in PSP XI.
