This image browser works great for me but I have a little problem. I installed Neverball with Neverputt and since then the menubar says Neverputt although SIB is running and running great. I uninstalled Neverball and Neverputt and all its stuff in /receipts and in my library but it keeps coming up that way.

I gave Mike's Thumbnailer 5 stars, cuz playing music is part of the program, and can be played with the Slideshow. To me, that's going the extra mile. So, I wouldn't feel right, giving this program the same 5 star rating.
This is a nice program, though.

FINALLY a simple image browser. I'm a Mac transplant and until now the only thing I've not found a suitable replacement for is the Microsoft Fax & Image viewer for easily browsing a folder of images via keyboard. I have searched off an on for months. There are commercial apps I'm sure, but the MS viewer is free, so I wanted free. I don't need anything else whatsoever, I have photoshop for anything else. I give it 5 overall, even though it has few feature, that is exactly why I give it 5. It has only the features I need.

The *only* thing I would like is if I could intigrate it into finder: double click a file, opens in S.I.B. and then it scans the folder for all available files.

Excellent freeware, best image browser imho. It is fast, stable and even a child can use it.

It is good to see great freewares for OS X. Except Photoshop, Graphic Converter, Indesign and a couple of "pro" softwares, I use freewares and they are damn good, better than lots of sharewares and commercial applications.

Thanks for this great one.

I've been looking for quite some time for an image viewer exactly like this one. It has all the features I need, namely an uncluttered image window with a file list on the left side; quick image browsing (up/down keys) and optional full-screen viewing.

Unfortunately it is not natively written for OSX (it must be written in Java or something) thus I'm going to keep on looking for an image browser, because this one is SLOW AS HELL to the point of TOTAL USELESSNESS to me. Sorry guys, your idea was great but the final product is unusable on anything but (maybe) the latest G4s or G5s. Which I don't have.

Actually it is natively written for OSX. Probably what is going on is that you have anti-aliasing turned on in it's preferences. There are several options in the Preferences window which can make it run much faster.

I do all my development on a five year old G4 400MHz and it runs quite fast. I wouldn't release it if it didn't. If it's speedy on this old machine, it should fly on anything newer.

It's only showing the first two files (which happen to start with a digit, if that means anything), then when I scroll down far enough that the first two file names would have scrolled off, the rest appear.

The "thumb" on the scrollbar is the wrong size, there's only half a dozen files total so there should probably be no scrollbar at all.

Anyone else seeing this?

Update: looking at the directory in finder, there's a LOT of files in there that are simply not showing up in SIB.

Could you perhaps send a directory listing of this folder to support@chipersoft.com? Perhaps what would be best is to run this on the terminal:

ln -al FolderInQuestion > listing.txt

SIB should only be filtering out files if it is invisible, either via the standard MacOS invisible flag, or if it starts with a period (ie, .tcshrc)

Perfect! This application has been perfect for me, especially since Preview has been anti-alliasing! Thanks!

Simplicity is good when it works well. In this case, it rings true. Perhaps add-in the ability to run slide show would be great. The application icon do need a "make-over" for readability. Overall, it's a good thing-as Martha Stewart would say.
