Designed with pro photographers in mind, FastPictureViewer is a slick 64-bit image viewer and culling tool engineered for viewing and rating digital images faster. The program features full ICC color management with support for profiled monitors, instant zooming and copy/move/delete functions, plus industry-standard Adobe XMP and Microsoft Photo rating, ideal for fast reviewing, culling and rating of large quantities of images. It displays shooting data (shutter speed, f-stop, ISO, exposure compensation) and RGB histogram in seamless floating windows and features a built-in program launcher, all in a slick and uncluttered user-interface. A tethering function is available and works with all cameras compatible with the MTP/PTP transfer protocol, which includes most Nikon DSLRs.
The software supports fast previewing of raw image formats such as Nikon NEF, Canon CR2, Panasonic RW2, Olympus ORF and Adobe DNG with its bundled image decoders. Standard image formats such as TIFF/MTIFF, JPEG, HD Photo, PNG, GIF, BMP and ICO are supported.
The program has been translated to 13 languages and is able to browse folders and images whose names can be written in any language, thanks to its support for the Unicode standard.
One of Germany's largest computer publications, "c't Magazin fur Computertechnik", dubbed FastPictureViewer "the Porsche of image viewers" and described it as "unbeatably fast" in a roundup that included several other image viewers and image editors (issue 19/2008). In another article from the same magazine, FastPictureViewer Professional was listed among the tools available to photographers considering an Adobe DNG based workflow (issue 05/2009).
FastPictureViewer is among the firsts of a new breed of hardware accelerated desktop applications and delivers unprecedented speed and ease of use. The download includes the 64-bit installer, the 32-bit installer as well as the FastPictureViewer Codec Pack universal trial installer.
