A free collection of 32 and 64-bit image decoders for Windows 7, Vista and XP
WIC makes it possible for 3rd parties to add first-class support for image formats to Windows, complete with thumbnails in Explorer, preview and slideshow support in Photo Gallery / Photo Viewer and metadata search integration.
The FastPictureViewer WIC Codec Pack provides such platform support for additional formats through read-only image decoders, simultaneously available in both 32 and 64-bit flavor.
WIC-enabled image viewers such as Windows Live™ Photo Gallery, Windows 7's Media Center and our own FastPictureViewer Professional "automagically" gain the ability to open and view new image formats, play slideshows etc, so does all .NET 3.x and WPF-based applications.
The FastPictureViewer WIC Codec Pack 1.x and its content are free for personal and educational uses. Commercial use (including redistribution and bundling) requires a license, please contact us for details.
