Photo ExpressViewer®

About Photo ExpressViewer®

"Photo ExpressViewer®" displays a large number of JPEG, TIFF, and RAW image files stored on the hard disk or external storage device of a personal computer at high speed, and allows you to easily rate, select, and browse photos.


"Photo ExpressViewer®" utilizes the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), which specializes in drawing images, to enable high-speed displays even for large numbers of images.

In addition, RAW files requiring demosaicing can be quickly displayed by utilizing the preview image* embedded in the data.

  • The display may be restricted depending on the format of the preview image (thumbnail image). Images cannot be displayed with image data that does not have a preview image. At first please confirm an images display by a trial version.

Various marks

You can also add intuitive User marks (Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, and Purple) to your photos. Incidentally, User marks can be added in duplicate, so up to 32 combinations can be classified.

In addition, you can also set a favorite mark (heart shape) for commemorative photographs and special photos. It can also be used when viewing photos that collect only your favorite memories.
