I am an old user of ToyViewer as you can see from my old review and comments of 2009 but I go back further than that I used it many years ago when I was using my G4 a lot and always enjoyed using it. This version is excellent and runs great on 10.8.3

Adobe suite in my professional life, but for images I want to share online via social media, this app has many ways to add effects, color, frame and drop shadow to digital images quickly and effortlessly. Toy Viewer's best feature? *every time you tweak the image, it creates a new one... don't like it? just close the image window and you've gone back to the last step. You don't have to create layers and hassle with flattening, etc. YAY!

SAVING PROBLEM

When using "Replace Colors" on a PNG or Tiff image - although the resulting image is shown with the transparent areas intact - it is impossible to save it with its transparency. iMac Intel 10.6.3

On only one of my drives the 5.0 version works. On the other 2 of my G5 (PPC)on 10.5.8 the Leopard version quits. I trashed my preferences and could find no Folder in ~/library/appsupport. I had to go back to the prevous version on those 2 drives.Repairing permissions did not help at all. Don't know why Macupdate coupled this thread with my other ones!

Which version did you download? There are separate links depending on your OS - the primary one is for 10.6 only.

Ver. 5.0 won't launch. It "quits unexpectedly" immediately.

I'm very often checking individual images. And for that purpose ToyViewer is a much better choice than Preview.

By default it shows images in their original resolution. That's how i want it. You can however, if you prefer, make ToyViewer adjust larger images to your display size (a bit hidden in the preferences - note to the developer: i think that option should be moved to the main menu).

Clicking *Alt + CMD + Z* gives you a borderless "foreground" mode: you can scroll through larger images or move through them with a hand tool. Nice! At the bottom of the image viewer is a black button to view your image in full screen/ match screen mode. There is a rectangle selection feature - hitting that black button will change your selection to borderless full screen. Very nice!

As well there is a scaling option at the bottom of the image viewer.

My only suggestions for improvements:
A short key for that *match screen* button because i'm using a multi-button mouse and assigning such a short key to one of the buttons would speed up my work flow. ToyViewer's short key for toggling windows is *CMD + 0* while most other apps are using *CMD + for that.

Despite these minor issues a 5 stars program. It has as well a host of exporting and editing options but when i'm honest, i hardly used those and would start Photoshop instead.

Very good application indeed. Perfect for checking images and image editing without the need to open PhotoShop.

I'm experimenting with using this as a defualt image browser instead of Preview.

Thanks for making it free.
