In a earlier version of Gwenview my raw files were not displayed, so I

Is it possible to organise that in the new version?

Gwenview supports RAW files since KDE SC 4.13

Problem expressed may not be related to gwenview supporting RAW, but which
RAW is *supported*. There are very many RAW formats and probably all
proprietary.


Exactly.
And you'd be amazed at how many budding photographers don't understand that,
or that there are often differences in raw format withing any given
manufacturer's camera line.

I once had a photography instructor tell his students to "resist the rush to
raw" and just set up the camera to store images with the least compression,
until they had several years of experience with that camera and had
discovered
specific annoyances that they could not correct through the camera controls.

Like shooting soccer in setting sun with darkness one way and red/yellow
tint the other which is very difficult to correct in jpg but fairly simple
in raw. And the result very much favors raw.
