I am changing from JPEG to RAW these days, and I wish to know what program would you recommend as a photo viewer compatible with Canon .CR2 format. (I use PS CS for editing)

Thanks a lot

Try Ifranview, it might work, it opens most file formats!

If you use Photoshop CS already, use the built in RAW viewer and editor, I can't find one that's better anywhere!

I have heard CS is a pain when you want to cycle quickly thru files checking them for sharpness etc.

I can't afford CS right now so i dont know.

Within the PhotoShop CS optioons page there is an option to view previews full quality or something similar (I've not got CS at work to check) if this is checked then it will take longer to bring up the preview image.

Breezebrowser is far quicker at running through shots to delete bad images.

If I could just get the afterburner working...

I just the browser in PS CS. You get thumbnails and a bigger preview. If you want to see it full size, you just open it in the RAW converter and go for 100%size. It's not that slow...

Eduard..

Probably you have a good processor but if you just want to check fast a set of pics Breezebrowser is the best. Acdsee is good as well but slower when Raw files are seen.

Definately. Breezebrowser is by far the fastest for browsing the images to look at sharpness etc. You can easily copy the image to a different directory if the are approved by you.

I use Breezebrowser, a great tool for quickly reviewing RAW images before you spend time copying and editting them.

Erwin..

Thanks for the program..Looks pretty nice but I'm afraid is only for nikonians. It doesn't work with Canon RAW files..
