FastPictureViewer Professional 1.9 review

FastPictureViewer Professional is a commercial image viewer and editor for Windows designed specifically for photographers and large image collections.

FastPictureViewer Professional has been designed to speed up the image reviewing process of large  images collections, for instance those taken after a photo shooting session.

While that's the program's main purpose, it it also one of the fastest image viewers available for Windows which increases its appeal to a wider audience.

If you ever tried to browse quickly through a collection of photos shot with modern digital cameras you have probably noticed limitations when it comes to flipping quickly between photos. Depending on the program you are using for that, you may notice that you can't flip through photos in rapid succession due to the time it takes to load an image.

FastPictureviewer Professional

fastpictureviewer pro 1.9

What makes FastPictureViewer special in this regard is the program's support for technologies that improve the loading and rendering time of pictures that you view in the program.

Some of these technologies, like hardware acceleration that is making use of the graphics card to improve the performance of the program, are disabled by default as they do not work on all systems. You can enable hardware acceleration in the program settings.

To do so click on Menu > Options > Display and enable the "Enable graphic processor" option there. Note that it requires a restart of the program before it becomes active, and that you will receive a warning when you enable the feature.

The author of the program states that you will be able to go through 4000 images per hour using the program when reviewing photos, and that you will be able to evaluate composition, sharpness or exposure directly using it.

The program displays the menus and options in the system's default language. Sometimes that is not the language you want the program to be displayed in. You have options to select the language you want the program to use during setup, or, if you have already installed the application on your system, via the lang:EN command line parameter (this one sets the interface language to English).

You have a couple of options to use the program's image viewing capabilities. You can drop folders or images directly into the program interface, use Menu > Images Folder to load a folder with images or Open Image to load individual images, use the program's Windows Explorer integration, or use keyboard shortcuts while the program is active to do so.

The program displays the current image on the screen, and information about the image if available in four transparent overlay widgets that act independently from the program window. The widgets display the XMP rating, GPS data if available the Histogram and EXIF information

A left-click zooms in on the image at the location of the mouse pointer which is an excellent option to evaluate the photo's sharpness or check out details. Keyboard shortcuts are available that let you rate images with a tap on the 1 to 5 key (which will be reflected by the XMP module displayed on the screen) and perform other operations.

The developer has created a Cheat Sheet that you find in the start menu folder of the program and in the program installation folder that lists all shortcuts on a single sheet of paper.

It is a good idea to go through the selection and start using shortcuts that speed up your workflow even further when using FastPictureViewer Professional.

Here is a short selection of shortcuts that you may find useful:

  • F4 displays a navigation slider
  • F5 reload the image
  • F10 toggle all floating windows on or off
  • F11 or Alt-Enter toggle full-screen mode on or off
  • F12 show or hide the taskbar
  • P toggle publish flag
  • X toggle delete flag
  • Ctrl-X delete all images that are delete flagged
  • Ctrl-q open a new image folder
  • Ctrl 1-9 set Photoshop urgency
  • Ctrl-W set as wallpaper

What's New

If you have read last year's review of FastPictureViewer Professional, you may be interested to find out what's new in the latest version of the program. Axel, the developer of the program, has published the list of changes on the official blog. Here is a short rundown of what's been added or improved:

  • Web Publishing so that you can directly upload images to photo uploading sites and local devices. Photos can be converted / edited by the program before they are published.
  • Black and White preview using the B keyboard shortcut
  • EXIF Statistics plugin
  • Geo-Clustering plugin to group images based on geographical or time proximity
  • PNG Overlay can be used to display an overlay on top of the program window which acts like a watermark. May be useful for public presentations or KIOSK displays.
  • Tethering Auto-Rename
  • Lock command line option to lock-down the interface when it is used in public locations
  • Subfolder Picker that lets you pick folders when you move and stop the mouse briefly at the left edge of the program window.
  • Navigation History
  • Support for Windows 8 and 10
  • Camera RAW format support has been extended with new camera models like the Nikon D4 or the Canon EOS-1D X being supported now
  • Support for Animated GIFs.
  • Marks put on photos, e.g. X for delete, P for publishing, are persistent now.

Verdict

I'm not a professional photographer and can't really appreciate all the features that FastPictureViewer ships with. I do not really mind that as it supports all the features that I want in an image viewer. It is blazingly fast, probably the fastest program right now for image viewing, supports all the file formats that I throw at it, lets me rate and browse photos, and integrates well into Windows Explorer where it makes available thumbnails of image formats not supported by Windows by default.

If you are a professional photographer or photo reviewer, you will love the program even more as it will improve your current workflow significantly. Features like folder monitoring, folder tracking and the integration of external editors are just two of the many features that you may find useful in this regard.

Don't believe me? Try it out for yourself. A fully working trial version of FastPictureViewer Pro is available for download at the developer website.

    Currently using Photo Mechanic

  2. Ray December 20, 2012 at 12:58 pm #

    Love fastpicture viewer. I have been using irfan view for a long time now and would love to try the pro version of fastpicture viewer

  3. Bero December 20, 2012 at 12:58 pm #

    I currently use FastStone Image Viewer. Thanks for the giveaway.

  4. Tom December 20, 2012 at 1:00 pm #

    Currently I use google picasa. This programm would be good too I think.

  5. Ray December 20, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

    I had this one from a site that gave you a software for free if you activate it on the same day but I lost that when I reinstalled windows xD

    Anyway, I'm using FastStone Max View to simply browse through files because it's really fast and bloat-free; ACDSee which I use ONLY to look up EXIF data sometimes and ofc Photoshop for all the psds and psbs I work with :)

    What really interested me in this program is the thumbnail support it brings for windows explorer. I have that done using another program but if it will speed things a bit I'd definitely want to try it :) When previews are made inside explorer for, say, 300MB tif, believe me speed matters xD

  6. Jaswinder Singh December 20, 2012 at 1:06 pm #

    Another good giveaway. I use the picasa, its good for viewing pictures, have simple editing n collage making features. But does not have advanced features. I didn't try FastPictureViewer yet, but heard good views about it. Hope to try its Pro version.

  7. Stig December 20, 2012 at 1:10 pm #

    I actually used FastPictureViewer earlier but it got lost in a reinstall of Windows. Loved it then and would really like to try it again. Lately I've been using IrfanView but I liked this software better for plain image viewing :)

  8. Frank December 20, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

    Nice giveaway! I currently use Irfan View and would be happy to try FastPictureViewer.

    Currently I use FastStone Image Viewer, I would love to have the full version of FastPictureViewer Pro to use in its place.

  18. Matt December 20, 2012 at 2:29 pm #

    Wow, this is a giveaway I'd LOVE to win, Martin! Would it help Mr if I told you that I use an old acdsee version AND that my daughter, who would be born in a couple of months, will be called MARTINA? (no kidding!) :)

    I use Photools IMatch.

  21. Brad December 20, 2012 at 2:33 pm #

    Use a range of apps (depending on who I need to share pics with and what I'm working on), nothing particularly good, esp. for this kind of functionality.

  22. Yash Maheshwari December 20, 2012 at 2:34 pm #

    I use Windows Live Photo Gallery currently, but have always been a FPV fan. Would love to go Pro with FPV though!

  23. Kite Pan December 20, 2012 at 2:37 pm #

    Big deal, many thanks! I actually use FastStone Image Viewer.

    I'm certainly willing to try this one.

  27. tinwheeler December 20, 2012 at 3:20 pm #

    Martin, FastPictureViewer has always been my choice. I hope Santa is good to me again this year.

    Xnview

  29. Jose Vidal December 20, 2012 at 3:25 pm #

    Eu uso há bastante tempo o FastStone Image Viewr, além de ser grátis faz até mais coisas que o FastPicture Viewer.

  30. Joseph Potter December 20, 2012 at 3:26 pm #

    This would be nice I use Zoner...

  31. Bart Degryse December 20, 2012 at 3:27 pm #

    Of all the programs mentioned so far, this one is definitely the best. For the non-believers, just try it with an open mind (meaning that every single program in the world has a learning curve). You'll see.
    That being said, I think it's pretty useless for professional photographers who would (or should) rather use (something like) Adobe Lightroom.
    But my kids would love getting a license for their photo requirements!

  32. Brian December 20, 2012 at 3:29 pm #

    Currently using picasa. Would love to win a license. Thanks...

  33. Luc Schots December 20, 2012 at 3:30 pm #

    Faststone viewer here... but always on the lookout for something faster ;-)

  34. QuentinS December 20, 2012 at 3:32 pm #

    I proudly own a FPVPro license already, yet for my daily needs the default Windows app does the job... if supplemented with the excellent FPV Codec pack <3
    (obviously not interested in the giveaway, just wanted to spread the love :))

  35. Isd December 20, 2012 at 3:33 pm #

    I am using irfan view. Please count me also.

  36. Brent December 20, 2012 at 3:33 pm #

    Currently use FastStone Image Viewer & ACDee. But this looks much better for my move to RAW images.

  37. Philip December 20, 2012 at 3:46 pm #

    Been using windows built in viewer, I could use something like this, because I have a lot of pics.

  38. Michael December 20, 2012 at 3:52 pm #

    I use two programs for photo viewing and other graphics FastStone Image Viewer and ACDSee Pro but I would like to try it FastPictureViewer Pro.

  45. Jim December 20, 2012 at 4:34 pm #

    At last, an invaluable tool for handling all those RAW brackets.

    Belongs in all software gadget bags

  46. Cool December 20, 2012 at 4:38 pm #

    I am using Picasa. Thank for this giveaway

  47. Giles December 20, 2012 at 4:59 pm #

    As a photographer, I'd love to try this out.

    I've been using Irfanview for years (have donated) as a part of my workflow. As each new camera body produces larger and larger files, the load speeds are definitional getting longer. Very interested in testing it's claims of the 'Fastest image viewer'! Also curious with it's integration with Photoshop.

    Thanks for yet another great giveaway.

  48. Andriy December 20, 2012 at 5:00 pm #

    Oh yeah...I'd forgotten about ACD/See...used to use that wayback when...

  58. Ed December 20, 2012 at 5:58 pm #

    I use a combination of viewers as no one has it all. I often use FastStone, Breezebrowser, Canon DPP. I'll try FPV now.

  59. Markus J December 20, 2012 at 5:59 pm #

    i would be happy to give it a shot, since the built in windows tool is giving me troubles and crashes regularly. also it is slow as hell, especially for raw.

  84. gh December 20, 2012 at 10:01 pm #

    I now use FaststoneViewer, which seems fast. I'll have to compare it to FastPictureViewer.

    I am currently using 4 Neurons Fullscreen Photo Viewer--a fine freeware application that would be perfect if it enabled the end user to open the image in an external editor. I'd like to try FastPictureViewer Pro 1.9 to see how it compares. Thank you and best wishes for the holidays and the coming year!

  89. Kevin R December 20, 2012 at 10:46 pm #

    I use Irfanview to view images right now, but would LOVE a copy of FastPictureViewer Pro 1.9. I have over 40,000 digital images to go through... This program would make that chore so much easier! Thanks.

    I have been using the built-in Windows Photo Viewer, Irfanview, and ACDSee. But one day I saw this program given away for free (from giveawayoftheday). Now I am beginning to love this viewer as I associated all the JPG files into it as the default viewer. Please let me win this one. Thanks. From Philippines.

  92. Jeffery Marizo December 20, 2012 at 11:59 pm #

    I use FastStone Image View and Irfan to view my digital photos. If FastPictureViewer Pro is the fastest Please count me in I have quite large digital photo collection.Thanks

  93. Owen December 21, 2012 at 12:03 am #

    I use ArcSoft Photo+ for viewing my photo's and Zoner 13 Pro for photo managment.

  94. Daniel December 21, 2012 at 12:03 am #

    Usually content with Picasa but FastStone I.V. is a good one at free level, so it would be handy to have the pro one for sure! Thanks!

  95. Darek December 21, 2012 at 12:26 am #

    'this is the best viewer for image include RAW files. I hope to win. Thanks for a contest.

    I would certainly put FastPictureViewer Pro to good use. By all means toss my name into the hat

  101. BenRogersWPG December 21, 2012 at 3:10 am #

    Hi Martin,

    FastPictureViewer sounds like a great solution to view all my photography, as I have thousands of artistic photos to run through all the time.

    Thanks!

  102. WD December 21, 2012 at 4:27 am #

  108. Mario Filipe December 21, 2012 at 5:35 am #

    I would really like to use a fast, clutter free, image viewer like FastPictureViewer Pro, however its price put it a little beyond my needs. Who knows, maybe I'll get lucky.
    For the time being I'm quite satisfied with XNView.

  109. Shishegar December 21, 2012 at 6:17 am #

    I am using "Windows Viewer".
    Thanks

  110. AlGee December 21, 2012 at 6:32 am #

    I primarily use IrfanView. I have played around with Picasa & Xnview. I purchased Zoner PhotoStudio 12 but it seems that no sooner than you install a paid version of a program it becomes obsolete and you're being bombarded with popups coxing a purchase of the newer and better version. I use JPEGSnoop for image decoding.

    FastPictureViewer Pro sounds like a top drawer program which might be the holy grail of viewers and decoders. I'd like to find out. Please toss me into the hat for the giveaway.

  111. Mountainking December 21, 2012 at 6:49 am #

    Currently I use Infraview, but Fastviewer has a lot more to offer with RAW photos from my DSLR, would love get my hands on a version :)

    Thank you for this amazing Offering!
    I've been using the Free version of FastPictureViewer, and I would love to use the Pro version!
    Please, count me in for a FastPictureViewer Pro license!

    I have used Irfanview for a long time to act as a front-end for Photoshop. It is fast but also has batch operations that are convenient.

    I would love to get a trial license to see if this product is faster.

    Currently I use FastStone Image Viewer, I would love to have the full version of FastPictureViewer Pro to use in its place.

    Thanks for this interesting giveaway. I currently use IrfanView, but I've some problem with dimensions of Raw files, so I'd like to win FastPictureViewer Pro.

    Could really use this. Tired of slow viewers. Thanks.

    I'm using Windows viewer, but would benefit from a faster one. Thank you very much.

  127. Kuk Wan December 22, 2012 at 3:50 pm #

    Oh, this is the fastest viewer I ever tested. I use old free version and want a license to get more features.

    I will take a chance on this giveaway.

    Am using faststone image viewer as well but am willing to upgrade (insert big ole smile here) to better applications. Many handy features with this one.

    I use Windows in-built image viewing app.

  131. Kamleu Noumi Emeric December 22, 2012 at 10:21 pm #

    i like this software. It's better than Irfan Viewer.

  132. Ron December 23, 2012 at 12:04 am #

    Looking for a fast viewer. Hope to have one soon. Thanks.

    I currently use picasa but gave fpv a try before and I loved it! especially loved the use of gpu to improve viewing experience...

    I just started using FastStone Image Viewer which is pretty good, with one exception: when going to a new folder it is slow to load the thumb nailes.

    Would love to try FastPictureViewer.

    Thanks so much for all you do Martin!

  135. Nirbhay Prakash December 23, 2012 at 10:03 pm #

    Please count me also in . I am currently using the Picasa software to view my photos, but I would love to try this software.

  136. Zeno06 December 24, 2012 at 6:41 am #

    I now use FaststoneViewer, which seems very good. I’ll have to compare it to FastPictureViewer.
