I was looking for two specific IrfanView features: renaming and deleting files on the fly through keyboard commands as one leafs through the pictures in a directory, and XnViewMP allows both. Thanks!

The interface isn't the easiest to come to grips with at first - I imagine this is the result of cross-platform development. But it didn't take too long to figure out how to do what I wanted, and it has a chock-filled configuration panel which among other things, allows you to assign keyboard short-cuts to what looks like all the features of the program.

I still hunger for IrfanView's austerity and speed. This program provides the speed (and the zillions of functions). But this is best I've found so far in the Mac world and ironically it's not a native Mac product!

Thank you XnViewMP developers!

Very efficient and fast app for image format conversions, especially batch conversions.

The design seems very purpose specific and that is a very good thing.

If the requirement is for a general purpose viewer there are other software such as Xee - but this is one of the top performing apps for conversions.

Many thanks to the dev. Hoping that the development continues.

I'll probably try this out on my Lion machine, but FWIW it doesn't launch on 10.6.8 - indicates an architecture incompatibility (icon with circle-bar).

Very good and very promising app.
Did not crash once. Easy to use.
Extremely fast, even when TimeMachine is performing a backup (which I didn't even notice)
Great work! Thanks.
However, I cannot drag & drop images from the browser to a photo editor. And unfortunately the keyboard shortcuts for enlarge/resize while in fullscreen mode do not work for me.

Tried it again. Still find it painful to use. Though I never mentioned the GUI previously, that's what people seem to have taken issue with. My "port" complaint was not that it looked like crap, but that it didn't behave well. Try scrolling through a folder in a picture window and landing on the image you want. Forget about trackpad gestures. Buttons for the file area in the browser are in a different part of the window--over the directory tree window--and that sort of thing is everywhere. Tagging doesn't work at all. And so on.

That said, it certainly has value as an omnivorous image file format converter.

I'm happy to see this ported over to Mac. Its lightweight, fast, and fairly stable -it hasn't crashed on me. It may lack a Mac GUI but it does a really good job. Much thanks to the developer!
