Does anyone here use FastPictureViewer Professional (link) for image viewing and culling? If so, what are your impressions of it? Please also note that I'm especially interested to know how it compares to other similar software such as BreezeBrowser Pro or Photo Mechanic.

Download it and give it a trial run ... nothing to lose.

I've used an earlier version before and liked it well enough (especially the dual 100% / custom % mouseclick), but can't compare it to the others. My workflow doesn't involve a lot of culling, and after I picked up LR4, it was suitable for my infrequent comparative/culling needs ... but if you need the speed ... give it a go.

Like RustyBug said, take the free trial. I've had it as my main viewer for 2 or 3 years and have used it for culling on occasion. I haven't felt the need for anything else, but then my needs are simple. It has all kinds of abilities I have never used. You might want to check out their "help and tutorials" section to see what all it can do. One thing I can tell you for sure is that they are constantly adding abilities. It seems like at least twice a week they have an update to add or improve something - almost always somethng I don't use....

Oh! Note that the license is good for use on two computers. I have a copy on my desktop and a copy on my laptop for use on trips. It is great for viewing and judging quality while on the road.

Thanks for the info guys. I was more curios than anything else as I constantly see the update notices for the program on filehippo.com but had never heard it mentioned here or on other forums.

I might just try it out even though I currently have no needs in this area that aren't already being met by other programs.

Try this one:

http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm

I no longer have any Windows machines, but when I did, this was what I used for fast viewing/culling. It's free, and reads all formats.

If you have a calibrated display you might be disappointed. Otherwise it's very nice.

Except it won't read Kodak's .dcr raw files ... as if there are more than three of us still using a Kodak body.

Not true, You can select the calibration .icm in the options menu.

I use it when I don't wish to bother with processing when first importing images.

Very fast and displays most raw formats and selects with the mouse wheel.
