FastPictureViewer helps professional photographers and imaging experts with fast workflow using color management, standard rating functions, RGB histogram, EXIF, magnifier and x64 support.
FastPictureViewer also features industry-standard Adobe XMP and Microsoft Photo rating, which makes it ideal for fast reviewing of images. This software displays shooting data, such as shutter speed, f-stop, ISO, exposure compensation, and RGB histogram in seamless floating windows. The program also features a built-in program launcher that operates in a slick and uncluttered user-interface.
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.
FastPictureViewer is available in 13 languages and is capable of browsing folders and images whose names may be written in any language, thanks to its support for the Unicode standard.
According to "c't Magazin fur Computertechnik," one of Germany's largest computer publications, FastPictureViewer is "the Porsche of image viewers" and was described as "unbeatably fast" in a roundup that included several other image viewers and image editors. In another article from the same magazine, FastPictureViewer Professional was listed among the tools available to photographers considering an Adobe DNG based workflow.
