In practice the time saving can be even greater, thanks to the very efficient and speedy operations of FastPictureViewer, which virtually never makes you wait: for example the rating feature, where you give one to five stars to an image or assign it a color label, is instantaneous. If you use the single-click file copy function, you'll find that the program performs the copy operations in background without making you wait, effectively making the file copy appear instant. Everything in FastPictureViewer was designed for speed and efficiency!
The ratings, captions, keywords and color labels set in FastPictureViewer Professional will be readily imported into Adobe Lightroom and other DAM software, thanks to the industry-standard Adobe XMP metadata standards those programs adhere to, making FastPictureViewer Pro the perfect time-saving front-end companion to Adobe Lightroom and other DAM's image development and picture organization features!

FastPictureViewer Pro has an innovative content-first user interface that puts the most important thing forward: your images. There is no multi-level cascading menus with hundreds of options, and no stack of toolbars full of tiny cryptic icons. Instead, most of the display surface - up to 100% of your screen - is used to display the most important thing of all: your pictures. Everything else - the program's taskbar, or the floating gadgets like histogram or EXIF shoorting data - is optional and can be hidden from view at the press of a key: FastPictureViewer never gets in the way of your pictures and all key functions - navigation, rating and the advanced functionality provided through plug-ins - can be accessed from the keyboard, while zooming to 100% is simply done by clicking on the image.
FastPictureViewer Professional can be used in many different ways by very different peoples: photographers looking for an efficient way to cull batches of new photos before "developping" them using their usual tools, photo editors reviewing thousands of images per day in search of that perfect cover picture, or photo enthusiasts admiring their photo collection. We have prepared three different usage scenarios below, each highlighting different aspects of the product.
FastPictureViewer Professional is a perfect companion to existing Digital Asset Management suites such as Adobe Lightroom or IDImager, helping users perform their initial accept/reject selection and rating much faster than before. Put in another way, you'll be done with reviewing/culling/rating in FPV Pro before Lightroom finished importing all your files and churning the previews. You'd then only import the keepers and end up saving a lot of time. Get the free trial and see for yourself.
FastPictureViewer Professional supports most image formats and comes with first-class support for raw formats from more than 400 digital camera models, while support for specialized formats - such as Photoshop PSD, OpenEXR, JPEG2000, TGA, PNM, HDR or DDS - can be added through our own FastPictureViewer Codec Pack add-in. Our viewer can also be extended by 3rd-party image decoders such as DjVu, supplied by other vendors, with more to come in the future.

FastPictureViewer Professional was inspired by a 2004 article from writer Eamon Hickey, describing the near impossible workflow of a picture editor working for Sports Illustrated and reviewing more than 16,000 raw files in just 6 hours. Check Eamon's article - an excellent and entertaining read for any photo enthusiast - and if your workflow even remotely resembles what he describes then FastPictureViewer Professional is exactly what you need to get the job done.
The more pictures you have to review, the better: FastPictureViewer Professional was designed to handle large digital images thousands at a time and makes it easy to quickly view, rate, backup, copy, move and delete almost any number of photos. The software was also designed with the needs of photographers in mind, so it supports industry-standards and first-class color management, along with essential tools like EXIF and RGB histogram, always available in floating "head-up-displays" that update themselves instantly, so they can be checked for every image without additional keystrokes.
FastPictureViewer does not try to be the next Swiss Army knife of image viewers, on the contrary it's a simple program that does a few things very well, but don't be fooled by the slick user-interface: the software has many powerful functions including second-to-none rule-based batch file management, resembling Microsoft Outlook™ message rules, that let users perform any copy/move/export jobs in just a few clicks, exploiting the parallel power of modern computers.
FastPictureViewer Professional comes with a fast export-for-web function that creates web-ready small and medium size JPEGs, with optional sharpening, from any supported image format: great for quick web uploads, or to hand (or email) low-resolution proof copies to customers right after a shoot. The exported JPEGs exhibits an ideal balance between file weight and image quality, making them perfect for use on websites and photo-sharing communities.
Our software is a great replacement for ViewNX2 as a NEF viewer, providing greater speed and much improved stability. The program can also be used as an excellent CR2 viewer as well as for any of the other 20+ raw formats directly supported. It is also the only native 64-bit, multicore-enabled application of its kind.
Axel Rietschin Software Developments, author and publisher of FastPictureViewer Professional and the FastPictureViewer Codec Pack products, is a privately held "family business" established in Geneva, Switzerland, the country of precision watches, delicious chocolate and blazing fast image viewers.
Axel started serious programming and hobby photography as a youngster almost at the same time, getting his first C compiler in 1983 and a Nikon FA shortly thereafter. He learned the rudiments of photography from his long-time friend Philippe Ayral, renowned French visual artist and former photojournalist, helping Philippe get around his first Apple II then Mac 128K computers at the same time. Axel first worked independently then for several companies ranging from small startups to huge multinationals, as software design engineer, lead developer, systems architect and CTO, before beginning formal studies of mathematics and starting the FastPictureViewer projects as a side job in early 2008. FastPictureViewer Professional has reached its 1st million downloads during February 2011.
