It works! So much faster now!

I was on the fence if this was actually going to work or not and didn't want to spend $5 only to find out it was a joke but after reading the reviews from others saying it works I decided to buy it. Wow what a difference this app made. Installation was so easy, the difference took effect immediately. Now I can skip through RAW+JPEG's instantly where as before I would skip over the RAW's because they would take so long to display. Great work and thanks a lot for keeping this app updated!

Works Great!

The app works as intended. RAW files open instantly. I've been using the app for a few years now without any hiccups.

A small problem I've had since preview updated, is when opening a picture it will always be slightly scrolled down into the metadata section. The top of the photo will be cut off and I have to scroll back up to look at it. It's a minor annoyance, but gets frustrating when looking through a lot of photos. I turned off the metadata window for now because of it.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for being a customer. I'm glad you find Raw Right Away useful.

The scroll position problem is an Apple Quick Look bug that first appeared in macOS 10.13. You may notice that it also affects other multiple-page preview generators such as the PDF viewer that ships with the operating system. I am in contact with Apple about this issue.

Holy Hell

I recently updated my camera from Nikon D750 to D850. For some reasons the raws from the D850 either preview extremely slowly or not at all now on my Mac. I did a google search to find this app, downloaded it and now every raw file opens immediately. The information it provides for every image is also a great reference and for the price its a steal.
