FastRawViewer 1.3.5 Release

As always happens with new versions of operational systems, some important functionalies of macOS Sierra are buggy: binary data is stored incorrectly in the defaults. This affects the storing of non-integer parameters in FastRawViewer.

To work around this issue, we are releasing FastRawViewer 1.3.5, available right now from download page.

Compatibility with macOS Sierra

If you have not yet updated to macOS Sierra, simply install this new version of FastRawViewer, open the Preferences (Command-, or Menu - FastRawViewer - Preferences), and press OK. The settings will be updated to our new Sierra-compatible format.

If you have macOS Sierra installed already, please go to the Preferences and check the values of all non-integer parameters. Here is the full list of such parameters with their standard (default) values:

  • Image Display Tab:
  • 1. Boost shadows amount: 0.40
  • 2. Highlights inspection gamma decrease: 0.40
  • 3. Decrease Exposure by: 0.5
  • 4. Sharpening Preset 1: Radius: 1.00 px
  • 5. Sharpening Preset 2: Radius: 2.00 px

  • 2. Fixed exposure Shift: 0.0

  • 4. ETTR autoexposure, if you've chosen the option Hard Limit: 4.0EV

Other Changes

  • Windows: if FastRawViewer was started, and you have not clicked in the program window (in any place there), the setting for Zoom anchor at mouse cursor was interpreted incorrectly for keyboard zoom ('Z', Ctrl-1, Ctrl-+)
  • Improved parsing of metadata for Leaf Aptus cameras
  • Correct parsing of ISO settings higher than 65535 for Pentax cameras
  • Improved EXIF records parser for JPEG files
