    Photo viewer for the Mac? Need help.
    Im a former Mac, former PC user who used ACDSee Pro for my photo viewing. Well, they dont make a Mac version so I need something. I cant seem to get a grasp on Apples iPhoto. Any help is appreciated. I dont need a free app. Ill pay for it.

    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.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    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.
