JustLooking is designed to be used instead of the Preview application on your computer for browsing most image file formats. In particular, it has the following differences:
  • It focuses on files and directories instead of lists of files. Thus, once you load a file, you can easily navigate through all other files in the same directory.
  • It displays images at their native resolution instead of interpreting DPI information stored in the image meta-data. While images are printed at the maximum resolution possible, on screen they are displayed pixel-by-pixel.

I really like JustLooking. It supports many images types including animated GIFs.

But unfortunately it does not do Horizontal or Vertical Flips. If that creature was added, I would give it 5 stars.

Sticks on Mavericks. Very bad response, sometimes even doesn't work. I switched to app Sequential.

I was looking for a replacement for the windows program Irfanview, and I think this is it. It doesn't have remotely as many features, but then I hardly used any of them anyway! For simple image viewing it has almost all I want. I also like Xee, but the thumbnail view makes this better.

I agree with other reviewers that a few simple additions would really be nice, like hand tool for moving images, but it's a minor quibble, everything you really need is here and nicely implemented.

JustLooking does just what it's says...enables you to keep JustLooking! Very easy to install and use with a minimal interface. You can rotate, resize, zoom in and out and view photos as thumbnails. I use it daily and haven't had any issues except for slow responses when moving from one picture to another when viewing large photo galleries. I would definitely recommend JustLooking to anyone who loves to view pictures.

HI,
I used Xee, but the problem is, I cannot print in Xee, I have to open Aperture for printing. That is why I looked for another app. and I found exactly what I was looking for, JUSTLOOKING. And free as well. Thanks to the developer of Xee, but now for me, thank you very, very much to the developer of Justlooking. easy, nice, simple,
wonderfull ! Thank you for free !

Hello, the app feels Quite good, but I would love to see some extra futures like: option in pref. to auto save rotated images; ability to change nav buttons to smaller ones (in MB air 11 they take lots of the small available space); as said before - hand tool for dragging large images.
and last. ability to turn on some kind of film strip in same window as viewer.

cheers

No way to set application not to quit after main window is closed.

Not so useful for me. Would not read a Photoshop .pdf file even though it is really a raster image. Would not read an Illustrator file or an .eps. Preview will easily work on raster or vector formats so it impossible for this app to replace Preview in my workflow.

wow this app is without a doubt, much better than the default Preview. It would be perfect if it included a hand tool for dragging larger images. Other than that, thanks for your great work!

Agree on the need for a hand tool to scroll large images.

Include this and fill out some of the other features, and this could replace Preview for me. Skim has mastered PDF viewing on Mac OS X, so IMO JustLooking should continue to focus on all other images, and match/exceed Preview's feature set. It's almost there, all it needs are a few features like the hand tool, a few tweaks here and there, and at least one killer feature or GUI innovation that blows Preview away.
