JView is my default image viewer. Full screen mode, decent slideshow and keyboard control lets you flip through images in a folder. It's like if Preview were good. Not an image manipulation tool if that's what you're looking for.

Viewing a small image the program used 30MB compared to only 8MB for Xee. It also doesn't remember window placement, so if you move the image window to a specific spot and open other images later, the window reopens in the upper left corner, unlike Xee which will remember your preference.

Love this program, upon migrating to a new mac it immediately replaces Preview as my goto image viewer.

I've been using it for years, but upon loading it onto a new Hackintosh Dell 10v i've found something thats annoying and Im not sure if its a preference I can adjust or a bug:

When I rotate an image in a folder, and then continue to scan through the folder the view stays rotated for consecutive images, even if they don't need to be rotated.

Help?

This version (or maybe the previous one, I'm not sure) seems to introduce a new bug. On my setup (MacBook Pro 13", SL 10.6.2), most images display a one-pixel-wide white stripe at the right edge, only in window mode (not fullscreen).

It doesn't happen to all the pictures. Pretty annoying though. I will look into this issue.

An Intel 64 bit build is available. In case you want it, please email me at shopton@gmail.com since I don't have a server to host multiple builds.

As far as I'm concerned, you may just create single build that contains both 32 and 64 bits.

Please keep on this excellent app. It's simply the best!

Dear Allan,
I have used JView for many many years now. IMHO it's simply the best viewer. I don't know how you do it but somehow pictures scaled up or down just look far better on screen than any other viewer I've ever tried.
However, as of now I'm still at version 1.9.5. I downloaded 2.6 but it seems it doesn't work with Tiger. What is the latest version that works with Tiger, and where could I get it?
Best regards,
ohkami

It works way better than 'Preview'.

Me like old icons better. Simple. Distinctive. Like the application itself. Otherwise, this is still the best image viewer for my money :D.

I truly like this program, i've recommended it to all my friends with Macs. However, since installing Tiger, I notice that when i import my photos with Image Capture, and rotate them before (using Image Capture) or after importing (using Preview), JView doesn't reflect the 'virtual' rotation. :-( As it happens that many times i'll have quite a few pictures rotated, this becomes a nuisance to use. Is there a way a setting could be added in the preferences, to where we choose whether or not we want JView to 'recognize' these type of virtual rotations? I say 'virtual' because in effect, JView is actually rendering the picture correctly, i believe that Preview only makes a 'note' that it should display a certain image rotated, and thus not actually rotating it physically… Well, thanks again for a wonderful free application, i've been using it since Jaguar

Ha, I never heard of the "virtual rotation" thing, and didn't even know its existence. Thanks.

yeah, in fact, photoshop CS is recognizing this type of annotation as well… it shows them rotated even though physically they are still in their horizontal position. I don't exactly know why, but my guess is that they do it in order to preserve the all the metadata information intact, as well as the creation date… i'd really really really really like to see it in JView!!!! :) cheers!

I haven't touched JView for a long long time. Wait until I get my MacBook, to see if I can reproduce this feature, and also fix some bugs.
