Let Adobe start charging for subscriptions! You won't need their stuff after you've tried Zoner Photo Studio. Faster, WAAY less bloated, better features with more of the ones you'll actually use and less of the ones you don't. It easily cut my processing time in half. Works with many PS plugins. If you're serious about your photography, DO NOT PASS THIS UP! You owe it to yourself to at least try the free version.
This has got to be one of THE best viewers/processors available.
The interface is very easy to use and customizable. It also comes with an array of adjustment tools, quality ones at that. The tools work so smoothly and even rival those in PhotoShop and GIMP. I love the crop tool. Many viewers just have you pull the frame around manually, Zoner's crop frame can be fixed so you don't have to do that. Overall, the product feels professionally developed and polished.
The only thing that stings the free version is that it cannot support 8BF plugins and some features for RAW files are limited. But that should not stop you, it could replace your Windows viewer.
I was looking for a new image viewer, not something with numerous features but thought I'd give this a try and to my surprise was extremely happy with it. It truly handles photos quickly and painlessly without the lag you get from other viewers.
There are numerous touch up options and such which I don't typically use but it was fun to play around with. It also has things like morphing mesh to easily morph a picture. The tabs make it easy to turn it into a manager, viewer or editor, doesn't get any easier.
Even if I don't use all the features, this is definitely a keeper and will from here on manage all my photo viewing needs.
I have been looking for a quick batch photo processing, managing software that also includes GPS GeoCoding information that will write to the actual file and not save all changes to a new file and store a backup. This, so far is a favorite. Very straight forward and fast.
