FastRawViewer
Quickly view and process RAW photos

FastRawViewer is a useful tool for viewing and processing RAW images.

The program claims to support "almost every single existing RAW format", "including native out-of-camera DNG files as well as the files converted to DNG". We didn't test that, but it had no problem at all with our Canon, Nikon, Olympus and Panasonic RAWs.

It's super-fast, too, rendering even our largest test images in a fraction of a second. Not bad, especially as FastRawViewer also displays the file name, resolution, key EXIF metadata, the actual RAW histogram, and more.

Crucially, the developer claims FastRawViewer is "the only WYSIWYG RAW viewer that allows to see RAW exactly as a converter will "see" it", giving you the most accurate look at the image.

There are tools to highlight under and overexposed areas of the image, and manually correct any issues. Exposure changes can be recorded in XMP files, ready for use by Adobe Bridge/ Camera Raw/ Lightroom.

You also get features to highlight focus peaking (the sharpest areas of an image), check noise levels, adjust white balance, boost shadows, apply tone curves, assign an XMP rating or label.

Once you've finished, you can move the picture to defined "accepted" or "rejected" folders, pass it to other programs for further processing, or just click "Next" to check the next image.

Version 1.10.3 changes include:

- Faster thumbnail reading, especially on slow media/WiFi
- Run program/Pass image in main menu/context menus has been reworked
- (Windows only) New Preferences setting: Interface - Set the main menubar colors to match the main window.
- New setting: Folders panel - gear menu - Show horizontal scrollbar
- (Windows only) A warning is issued if 'pass image to external program' requires privilege escalation.

Verdict:

FastRawViewer's wide format support makes it a very useful RAW viewer for everyone. Experts can also use its more advanced evaluation tools to quickly sort through a stack of RAW shots and choose the ones they need.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
