    Could someone please tell me a "step by step guide/process"
    for getting the UFR 0.19 to work with Gimp 2.8 on win7 x64?

    I've been searching for days and trying many methods and cannot seem to get this to cooperate.

    Even if i have to install Gimp 2.6 back i will
    *but i couldnt get that to work either

    I got it working this way:

    1. Install Gimp 2.6 (32-bit)
    2. Install UFRaw 0.19.2
    3. Add the path to the UFRaw bin directory (C:\Program Files(x86)\UFRaw\bin on my system) to the list of plugin directories in Gimp settings.

      Ya didnt try the 32 bit so i guess i'll have to try that,
      or i might just stick to elements which solved my raw issue

    I will be happy to provide you ufraw (built from cvs) for Gimp 2.8.4 Windows 7, 64-bit.

    If you have Gimp from my website, you won't have to worry about DLLs. However, if you don't then you will have to tell me what DLLs are missing on your system when you try to run Ufraw.

    feel free to contact me at

      Took a look at your site,
      have a couple questions to bounce off of you if i may.
      Initially i wanted UFRaw so i could use my raw file in gimp so i can have the bext resolution.
      I can use PS elements to save the raw as a 16bit tiff
      However looks like GIMP2.8 still only allows 8bit
      I've also installed Gimp2.9 which allows for 16 & 32 but unstable as all hell.
      Would you recommend trying to find a workaround for GIMP or should i just learn Elements more?
