Notable new features and changes include:

  • FastPictureViewer Professional 1.2 now uses our own highly optimized JPEG decoder to unpack embedded raw preview JPEGs (as found winthin Canon CR2, Nikon NEF and Adobe DNG and other raw files) up to 50% quicker than before, without any compromise in compatibility or image quality.
  • The Korean translation has been revised.
The new fast JPEG decoder use processor-specific code and some level of parallelization for stellar decoding performances on modern Intel chips, including i7, i5 and other multicore processors.

As a first step, the decoder is currently used only for unpacking JPEG previews embedded within raw files.

The new version is available now from the download page.
