Default Let's talk Apple

Since I switched to Apple recently and got all the major switching blues under control (in one day, really), I need those little things/tweaks now

My first question is, what is a good and small photo viewer that you like/recommend. Sadly, my bread & butter for that purpose (ACDSee Photo Manager) doesn't work on a Mac

What are you looking for in the photo viewer? What do you need it to do?

Photos comes with OS X. It's basically a place to put your photos and you can do some light editing with it too.

Another option is preview, if you just want something simple to just look at your images. It'll display JPEG s, raw, tiff and I'm sure other formats as well. I think it has some very simple editing features as well.

Cheers, Rob.

Currently working on this project, which involves going through thousands of photos quickly to choose which to print. I thought Canon's ImageBrowser will do the trick. But nope, it doesn't. So I need an alternative.

In Apple's Photo, you need to Import the pics, which I don't want to do. I just want to have a quick look then move on (in like a second or two).

If you have the pics you want to look at all in one place, you can highlight them all. Then right click on them. A dialog box opens, click on something that says something like 'open with'. Then pick preview. It should open them all in a new window. See if that works at all for you.

Before you do that though, try it first on just one pic. This way if you don't like preview, you won't have to wait for it to work on a huge amount of pics. But preview might do want you are looking for. Check it out.

Sounds like IB by Canon, which I found out recently that it "sux".

But I will give it a try.

Cheers, mate.

ACD Pro was the one program i missed when i made the switch to Mac.
I use Adobe Bridge and Arcsoft Photo +
Bridge is the best

How do you upload your photos to Smugmug. I used to use ACDSee Photo Manager. Right-click and it's uploaded.

I've never used ACDSee. I've been using Lightroom for a long time now.

I meant as a fast photo viewer.

LR is good too, need to re-purchase it (will wait till 6.1 or 6.2).
