For fast viewing of professional digital image files Mark uses a program called ACDSee Pro 10. Large images can lock up computers not designed for photography.
ACDSee Pro 10 retails for $100. But regularly available for a 50% discount from the ACDSee website. ACDSee offers a Standard ($60 retail), version of the program too. The difference is Pro allows embedding metadata within the image files. Like keywords, captions, etc. If you don't use metadata Standard works fine. ACDSee has a 30 day free trial direct from their website, In 2018, ACDSee Pro 10 is called Pro 2018.
For Mac users ACDSee makes a Mac version here.
