This comment isn't directly related to the software or its functionality.
Instead, I want to mention that I just noticed that the name appears to be a reference to William Gibson's book 'Pattern Recognition'.
Thumbs up for an excellent literary reference!
What does this app do that Preview does not do?
It allows you to open an image in the program of your choosing. To my knowledge (I could be wrong), Preview will only open its images in Preview. I prefer to open my images in GraphicConverter.
Preview doesn't have a command that lets you send a file to the trash. This does.
Does what it says. Suggestions for improvement:
- play animated GIFs
- double-clicking image open it in another window and/or (configurable) external editor
- show pic info (format, dimensions, EXIF, etc)
Great little image viewer. Very fast, and the keyboard navigation for moving through your directory structure really rocks (hint: just use the arrow keys).
My only suggestions for improvement would be to try using standard toolbar buttons, and include a button for setting the current image as your wallpaper (which is currently buried as a contextual menu from the image selection pane).
I found Footage Head when looking for an app to view my pr0n images in. I now use it for all my image viewing. Thank you, it is a perfect example of a good image viewer.
I am new to Mac - switched from PC this week - and was looking for a simple tool in order to view rapidly and easily archived pictures transferred from my PC. Footagehead did the job. It is simple, but can prove useful for that simple task - for free.
