Bump for new version and still the best x32 and true x64 image viewer.

Hi there
UNFORTUNATELY the piece I need -- RAW IMAGE viewer is a "Pay for" feature.
After the trial the image viewer is only good for JPEGS - Windows explorer can already do that BTW.

Software is good but I don't need to PAY for it.

As I already have Photoshop (CS4) and Adobe Bridge I can view RAW images already - although not as fast as the software mentioned in the OP.

Cheers

Jimbo, you sure it's a pay-only feature? The codec pack is a free download. I can't confirm it's free because I have the registered version.

How do these viewers handles folders with a large number of images? I have some folders with upwards of 30,000 images. ACDSee handles it quite well, although there is definitely a performance hit. Things like Adobe are brought to their knees with this large number of images, at least in terms of image browsing.

Fast Picture Viewer | WIC RAW Codec Pack for Windows 7, Vista and XP

Allows you to view raw image formats without the installation of yet another 3rd party viewer.

Back in XP, Microsoft had a RAW picture viewer codec http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en . I haven't tried installing it on Windows 7 but you might try it out in compatibility mode to see if it works.

Gildor, I was running into problems with ACDSee and huge image folders, the .db would always crash no matter what I tried. With FPV, it's not an issue and is significantly faster. You actually have to use it to 'feel' the difference.

good software. very fast.
sadly totaly useless if you dont have a Internet connection.
no way for it to call home and verify its free to itself
(just a scary idea in itself. free is free why would it need to phone home to be free)
may as well be trial ware with the two annoying popups it asks every time it starts
"can i please phone home to verify im free..."
"i cant verify im free ill try again next time you start me"
but other wise useful, if you trust the author.
