I was just wondering if anyone's used or is using the software supplied with the camera, and if it has any advantages over other higher-end image editing/processing applications out there, such as Photoshop.
Personally, I haven't found the Viewer to be anything even in the vicinity of useful. I suppose this is but natural if/when you regularly use apps made by companies like Adobe.
For one, the program just loves crashing, for no apparent reason.
I haven't tried it on any system other than my own (important specs: AMD 2800 64-Bit, 512 MB RAM, 120 Gig Seagate hard disk), but the app seems to crash when viewing folders which contain more than 25 images or so. Other programs like ACDSee seem to handle these folders fine, even when in thumbnail view.
The Viewer seems good for basic sharpening or levels/curve adjustments, but the intermittent crashes are kind of annoying, to say the least.
Anyway, rather than continuously griping about it, does anyone use it? If so, for what? Secondly, is this a problem on my system, or are there others out there who are experiencing the app crash? If I/we could figure out when exactly it crashes (doesn't necessarily crash on more than 25 images in a folder, even that figure isn't a necessity), maybe it could be used for something other than hogging hard disk space.
