Outstanding image viewer for Mac. A friend of mine gave me two NEF files from the new Nikon D600 to look at. Neither Aperture nor Preview could open them, Viewit did. I used Viewit to convert them to JPEG so that I could play around with them in Aperture.

2.41 on Lion is significantly faster in rendering thumbnail preview. But unfortunately, it also introduced a bug: the toolbar, slideshow timer and mark icon in image view (not fullscreen) are still mission when the main window is closed and reopened in a single session. Quit and relaunch can bring those items back though.

So you give this app two star, only because you'd prefer another app ?

Have you ever read a review of any product or movie that says: the other one is way better? This is not a review, it is merely a comment. I reasonably expect a review to assist me and others in determining whether it would be wise to part with (in my case at least) a rather limited supply of money.

I'd like to see a feature that the app automatically recognizes all the images in the same folder. Other than this, awesome.

This is probably the fastest JPEG viewer on the Mac. Here's the small problem I have: I assign the default viewer as ViewIt then open one single image in a folder of images. I'd love to switch to thumbnails by pressing ENTER (or by double-clicking), or switch to the next image in the folder (by scroll wheel or cursor keys). AFAIK if on startup I open a single image, ViewIt does not allow me to do that, whereas if I open the folder in thumbnails view (via Finder contextual menu, for example) I can do that switch.
Other than that, excellent. Thank you.

Great app, but a major missing "feature" is the complete inability to reconnect moved/ renamed photos from saved Viewit lists. This is a big drawback. Anytime a photo is moved or renamed from within the Finder, the Viewit list will show that the photo is missing and you will be unable to view it. There is no option to find that photo and Viewit does not have the ability to locate it for you. For one who is always moving things around, this is a problem.

I thought I'd just add a little update to my earlier review (2009). The developer has done a great job of stabilizing this software, although a few problems still exist. When it dos its job it is a marvel, and rapidly opens hundreds of files creating a visible light-box catalog,making additional operations - like renaming, rotation, file conversions and so on - to be performed with an ease and simplicity few 'imaging' apps can claim. Its film-like scrubbing option (allowing a review of the entire set by clicking and scrolling) allows time-lapse sequences (from stills) to be 'previewed.' This was likely not a planned feature, but it is certainly useful for those of us producing time-lapse sequences.

Some of the 'missing features' of this program will - hopefully - be addressed in the future. One of these shortcomings is the program's single preview size limitation. Thumbnails should be available in at least a few convenient sizes, if not being altogether scalable (the ideal). Similarly, the ability to scale this scrubbable preview 'movie' would make time-lapse previews from hundreds (even thousands) of stills more viable (the author should plug this feature, as it is unique). This might be possible for those of us with lots and lots of ram, or a virtual 'ram' solution might suffice. Also, the ability to export a simple movie at these thumbnail sizes could entice a whole new type of clientele into his customer base.

Overal, this is a must have utility for serious photographers who do a lot of shooting. Yes, I use Aperture, and iPhoto still holds most of my research photography from the web, but ViewIt is also a valuable asset to my software arsenal. This is not just a one trick' pony', and if the author chooses to add a few of these suggested features, it becomes an irreplaceable asset.

Encourage him. Buy a copy. I did!

A little marvel.
Immediate starting. True random show. Cristal crisp images.
Everything needed except the background music.
Much better than anything I've tried for viewing large image folders with pleasure and efficiency.

Ditto on the files # limitations. I have had it crash when attempting to load a series of larger TIFFS as well, and this is problematic because modern cameras are producing ever larger files (the Canon 5D Mark II is now at 21 MP!).

Overall, I haven't seen any features added in a long time, either. Something as simple as a movie viewing capability - allowing a series of time lapse shots, for example, to be views a a real-time 30 fps video - might be nice, as the preview already does a nice job of this. You can drag in the MAIN view and see a series of thumbnails that - once the previews are loaded) will let you scrub back and forth nicely. So, why not add a movie playback at one or more speeds?

Overall, a nice fast viewer that reduces the need to boot up PS. However, either this gets updated soon, or it may be time to for some of us to move on.

In my books by far the best image viewer. Firstly Preview started blurring certain images after having installed Leopard ( although this seems to be better with 10.5.7 ) Secondly with other image viewers that I have tried, I would have huge amounts of "grain" in images that I had shot on film and scanned ( even 50 iso films ) Viewit does not give me this problem so 5 stars and a "big thanks" to the developer.

Won't open - 'The application ViewIt quit unexpectedly.'
Quits repeatedly on double clicking. ( using 10.5.8 )
Previous version on my powerbook is 2.3.7 and works just fine.
