Everyone in the family can use iPhoto.
It doesn’t take but minutes to learn the basics, and becoming an advanced user isn’t much more than a Dummies or Idiot book away. Simple. Elegant. For those Mac users with hundreds of photos to browse and convert, there’s no easier app to use and hate than Viewer on your Mac.
Browse through many different photos by simply using your Mac’s trackpad or Magic Mouse gestures to swipe between pages. If you’re browsing through a folder with many different images, Viewer can select specific file types to view.
Drag and drop a folder of images onto Viewer, Browse through PDFs and most photo or graphic image file formats. Viewer even works in Full Screen mode on modern Macs, creates thumbnails, and slideshows, and, of course, converts images from one file to another.
What’s not to like with this inexpensive photo and image browser that’s drag and drop simple, locks and unlocks PDFs, securely deletes photos, creates slideshows, and even browses animated GIF images?
A few things come to mind.
There’s no shuffle on the slideshow. Thumbnails don’t load quickly. And, it’s missing a few standard and useful features, such as Set as Desktop Picture, and there’s no way to rate or sort photos in a folder.
About all it does is let you view a folder of photos.
There’s potential in Viewer, but I worry that it’s not much more than an attempt to test the waters of selling an app in the Mac App Store. The developer doesn’t have a legitimate website so support is virtually non-existent.
