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!

For Blake, it is less about the art and more about the process. He dives deep into difficult topics and makes them easy to understand through his outside the box thinking.
