hi, folks -

I am recent convert from windows. One thing I missed so much is a decent and fast image viewer, an replacement for ACD See. There are two (simple) features I am looking for:

- be able to browse the directory tree (not just tagging)
- be able to show original size when I am in viewing mode, if it exceed the size of the screen, I should be able to use cursor scroll it up/down, left and right, not just a scaled down version as seen in most slide show mode.

I believe these are just basic and essential functions and won't be too much to ask. However, i have failed to locate a replacement so far. (Photoshop built-in viewer is not an option for me). The closest thing I could find is CocoViewX, but it could not show original size, unfortunately.

If you have your favorite image viewer, please help me out here.

thanks a bunch

Oliver

CocoViewX is about the closest thing I can find to ACDSee. Subscribing to this thread to see if someone has another recommendation. I think ACDSee sets the bar a little high.

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!

I agree that ACDSee sets the bar pretty high. However, if you want to be able to view full size and navigate your folder tree, ImageBrowser does a nice job. Try:

If you have ever used the old Unix/Linux standby xzgv, you will find that the interface reminds you of it. This is a compliment, not a put down.

Also, from an earlier thread, see Picture Arena, $10.00 shareware, which the poster of this article:

Viewing thumbnails similar to ACDSEE

says does everything ACDSee does. Have a look! You can find Picture Arena at:

http://www.picturearena.com/

Hmmm... in looking up the URL for you, I see that the price seems to have gone up, to 24.90 Euros. Still, if it does what you need, it may be worth it.

Lightroom is my choice and it is worth every penny that it cost. It is fairly easy to use and if you can only afford to buy one program for editing and printing this is it.
