I only use 32Bit - on that note, the poster I quoted didn't specify what "Bit type OS".

Window photo viewer :p
My fiancee and I typically just look at one after another (i.e. arrow keys). She has little patience for technical stuff.

I only use LR for PP.

Picasa is cool, but I typically just use it when I want to load something to a web album.

Cooliris has a nice "wall of photos" effect and you can view individual photos too. The browser plugin is nice as well.

For RAW I use DPP or Picasa.

Digital Photo Professional which is bundled with Canon cameras..

Before I bought Photoshop (huge discounts if you are a student), DPP is all I used.

For a simple viewer, I like ACDSee. I'm using Windows 2000 for my main computer, though, and it does not have any built-in viewers like the newer versions of Windows.

Although I use DPP for raw conversion, I use FastStone Viewer for viewing, comparing, resizing and cataloguing.

A new version of the latter has just been released.

Yup...just download the RAW codec and you can use Windows Photo Viewer. I prefer DPP

Yep, I do a select all and use the Quick Check tool (Alt+Q). I mark all the obvious deletions with a #1, the maybe's with a #2, and the keepers with a #3. I instantly select all #1's and delete them, and then proceed to the #3's for editing and output. If I need to, I come back to the #2's later.

Not sure why more people don't learn to use DPP. It's an amazingly handy application and it's free with Canon cameras that shoot RAW.

Do yourself a favour and just get Adobe Bridge. Seriously. It's pretty much become a must-have for my work flow now. Can't imagine not having it.

I agree.. DPP is a great programme for tweaking RAW files.. I aquire, tweak then convert to Jpeg using DPP, any other post processing is then done with Photoshop CS4..

I'm another fan of DPP -- until you have more time in the hobby and you move on to more expensive full-featured software, DPP does great at both marking files to delete, doing the Quick Check, and then opening them for edits, whether Raw or jpegs.

DPP at home except when doing some quick sorting of JPEGs, then I routinely use XnView.

When on the move, the PORTABLE version of FastStone Image Viewer for RAW, and the PORTABLE version of XnView for JPEGs.

As most people have said above, I think DPP works best in general, in particular for RAW files.

Right now I'm playing with the new version of FastStone Image Viever (4.3), released theese days.

This donationware "viewer" now adds a Clone and Heal tool, Shadows and Highlights correction, Levels, and even Curves, the latter on a large diagram and an optional 10x10 grid for precision work.

The Lanczos resizing algorithms have been available before, and that's why I always use FS for resizing.
