View Full Version : Which image viewer?

28th December 2004, 08:17 AM
On the PC (which I *was* a user ;-)), they had a wonderful app called ACDsee. It views images very quicly in fullscreen, catalogs them nicely and best of all, allows zooming in fullscreen and scrolling around.

The closest app on the Mac is iView MediaPro but it doesn't allow fullscreen zooming and scrolling around.

Any suggestions? Cumulus, Extensis Portfolio are not good enough.

It looks like the same app is available for OSX...

but the mac version of acdsee is terrible. looks like a os9 app and it is slow and sluggish and lacks many of the features of the pc version. i am not looking for acdsee for the mac. is there a mac program that rivals acdsee?

This might help:


Also, check out jview, not sure if it does all that you're after but i've heard it's the closest you're gonna get to acdsee.

Graphic Converter for me too

yup Graphic Convertor is powerful, well made, lotsa options. Love it. :)

Graphic converter, depending on what Mac you bought you may have a copy, it's bundled with PowerMacs and PowerBooks, I've been using it for yonks now.

Give CocoViewX a whirl, it's free and pretty decent :)

I was going to mention this one too. Downloaded it yesterday. It looks very un maclike until you turn off the brushed metal in the preferences. It's not quite as fast as I'd hoped but it'll be good enough for plenty of people and it's free.

Another vote for GraphicConverter. :) That app has never let me down, ever.

whilst I agree with those who use Graphic Converter, which for the price is probably the best multi-purpose graphics app. One cannot get much better than free.. why not look at this? toy viewer (http://waltz.cs.scitec.kobe-u.ac.jp/OSX/toyv-eng.html)

Graphics Converter.

From the beginning

I use a combination of Graphic Converter (came bundled with the P'Book) and iPhoto - considering I took 400 photos over xmas/new year, these two are serving me well...

Good to see the Creative Mac section getting some good usage - i'll be adding some audio/music stuff over the next few months as I get more and more into these fantastic machines and OS.
