Hi Kirk

I understand that, which is why I fired off a few new shots, and then tested the loading times for images that hadn't previously been viewed. With the large jpg test, I tried IView first and then FPV. IView was still the quickest by some distance, and much quicker than it had been previously.

I will add that I use Photo Mechanic 4 (I know, I need to buy 5!) routinely, every day, and I know how great it is.

And I did say my test was really unscientific
