I'm using Picasa (running under Crossover) because iPhoto was too inflexible and Picasa is now the only app I haven't convincingly replaced from my PC days.

You could just try QuickLook built into Leopard or Adobe Bridge that comes bundled with Photoshop Elements is good.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

If it is just for viewing and not editing then adobe bridge is definitely the best software, most pro's use it bundled in with photoshop cs3 but as macbookpro joe says it does come with the cheaper elements programme.

Yeah... I was particularly partial to ACDSee Classic myself when I switched and at the time, nothing really suitably replaced it. Right now, I use Xee and ViewIt. Xee is the default I use for opening individual pictures/photos, and ViewIt I use for slideshows/browsing entire folders (via a context menu it adds). Between the two, I'm pretty satisfied.

I was an ACDSee user too, and although it's not as powerful, I like CocoViewX on the Mac. It's pretty decent and worth a look (you can't beat the price, either).

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

You might wish to try Picture Arena. It is widely referred to as ACDSee for Macs. When you look at the website, you will see why. It has a remarkable GUI resemblance.

I don't use it myself, so I can't comment on whether it is a fairly good match for ACDSee, but I have read a lot of very favorable comments from other posters.
