FastRawViewer 1.8: Technology Preview

FastRawViewer 1.8 (the number is provisional, so as to differentiate it from other versions) doesn’t add any new user-oriented features.

In this version, we focused on the “internals,” specifically on the fundamental functions of the program: accelerating the display of RAW files (and other formats of course).

This is quick fix release that fixes two annoying bugs:

  • On macOS 10.12+ keyboard shortcuts may stop working after batch operation of moderate length (more than 5 files, but less than one second)
  • On Windows: FastRawViewer may crash while trying to open file that could not be opened (e.g. prohibited by permissions settings, or locked by another program).

Bugs fixes

Minor improvements

FastRawViewer 1.7.1

FastRawViewer 1.7 Release

In FastRawViewer 1.7 we added:

• Support for HEIC/HEIF File Formats

  (in 64-bit version of Windows, and in regular (not Legacy) version for macOS)

• XMP support for TIFF, PNG, HEIC/HEIF files

• New View Mode, "without Beautifications"

• Other/minor changes and bugfixes

FastRawViewer 1.7

FastRawViewer 1.7: New View Mode, "without Beautifications"

By default when displaying RAW FastRawViewer applies S-shaped tone curve and Adobe compatible' midtone correction.

With these (default) settings, the RAW display becomes more or less "as expected", correlating to the embedded JPEG and standard Adobe rendition (with all sliders in default positions) in both contrast and brightness.

In FastRawViewer 1.7 we've implemented a quick way to turn of both of these settings and switch between a flat, non-contrasty look, which corresponds to what the camera records into the RAW much more accurately, and a regular view.
