Contenta RAW Viewer
Contenta RAW Viewer enables you to view RAW images obtained from your digital camera. It's an approacahble software application that features a file browser and offers support for other file types too, such as PNG, BMP, JPG, GIF and ICO.
Simple setup and interface
The installation procedure shouldn't give you any trouble. Afterward, you're welcomed by a user-friendly interface made from a standard window with a neatly organized structure, where you can use the built-in tree view to navigate directories and locate RAW or other images to view, even if they are on removable media devices or network drives.
View RAW and common photographs
Alternatively, you can use the classical file browser to find and open a picture. When using the tree view, make sure to double click a folder to view its containing files with the extensions supported by Contenta RAW Viewer.
You can check out their name, format and thumbnail, as well as double click any image to fit it to the window (it can be maximized). It's possible to zoom in and out, or to print the image. Apart from the fact that keyboard shortcuts are supported for these commands, there are no other noteworthy options.
Evaluation and conclusion
As we expected, the tool didn't put a strain on the overall performance of the computer throughout our testing, running on low CPU and RAM. It worked smoothly and didn't hang, crash or prompt error messages.
Although it doesn't come loaded with richer view options, such as the possibility to copy or rotate the picture, or to enter fullscreen mode, Contenta RAW Viewer offers a simple and straightforward solution for viewing RAW and common images. Basically, you can use it to quickly verify file contents to decide whether you want to keep or remove the pictures from your storage device.
