Aperture and RAW files

This answer was rated:

I just installed a new copy of Aperture downloaded from Apple earlier today. The published list of supported cameras for RAW includes the Fuji X100s. Unfortunately, when I attempt to open a.RAF ( RAW file ) from my Fuji X100s, I get a message that this is an unsupported file. RAW downloads from my Olympus OMD and the Panasonic GX1 open with no difficulty. Otherwise, I am becoming familiar with the software and like it. What am I missing with the Fuji X100s RAW files

? Thanks. Henry


P.S. I just checked and the RAW files from my Panasonic LX7 They also fail to open. This camera is also in the Apple published list of RAW supported cameras !

Steve Herrod :

Hi Henry, I'll be happy to help - am checking the details but can you let me know the full version of Aperture that is installed?

Steve Herrod :

Having installed it, can you see if there is any update available under Apple menu-->Software Update?

Steve Herrod :

As you say, both cameras seem to be supported

Steve Herrod :

but let me know the full version information and hopefully we will be able to resolve this

Restart the computer while holding the Command and R keys to boot to Recovery HD partition, when it boots select the Disk Utility and Continue. Then select Macintosh HD on the left and first Verify Disk on the right and if that is OK Repair Permissions. If Verify Disk is not OK try to Repair Disk.

Good Morning Mike !


I just followed your instructions and the answer that resulted is that the ' " MacIntosh Disk is Ok.




Did you Repair Permissions?
If you have done that restart and go to the Apple logo to Software Update
