By dpreview staff on Jul 12, 2000 at 04:00 GMT

Sometimes I wish Max would slow down!! We only mentioned Thumber 3.20 last week, now Max has updated it to support drag-and-drop from Windows Explorer, extra specific information for certain cameras (Nikon 990, 950, Casio QV2000, QV3000 and some Olympus models), Support for Nikon D1, font sizes etc. etc. He never stops that guy...
