Windows/Mac: RAW photo files are much larger than JPEG files and can be slow to load. FastRawViewer opens RAW files quickly so you can view the image and EXIF data right away.
Once you load a RAW file with FastRawViewer, you’ll see the EXIF and histogram data on the right side of the screen. The status bar on the bottom also lets you make simple white balance and exposure edits. To save the edits or to make more advanced edits, you can send the image to Lightroom or another editor of your choice.
We were able to open RAW files from a variety of cameras as well, including those from Fujifilm, Canon, Sony, and Samsung. You can check out the full list of supported cameras here. FastRawViewer is free for now while it’s still considered beta and is available for Windows and Mac. If you’re on the fence about whether or not to shoot in RAW, check out our guide on when to shoot in JPEG and RAW.
