My buddy Matt over at Redbubble pointed out a flaw in my cataloging post processing tutorial. I forgot to mention the program I use to see my raw images as a viewable picture thumbnail. This is actually a huge flaw in my tutorial and Matt was kind enough to point it out tactfully! Thank you Matt 🙂 It is nice to know someone reads my tutorials!
I use a program called “Fast Picture Viewer” Codec Pack. This is one of the most valuable pieces of software in my arsenal! I can actually see my .orf (Olympus Raw Format) images as thumbnails! At the low cost of 14.99. While that seems like a lot of money for a raw codec, I see it as an invaluable resource. If you look at time as money, this application just paid for itself in 18 minutes, I charge $55 an hour.
Installation is extremely simple. Run the app after downloading, select your cameras RAW format, and you are free to view your RAWs!
