I should have read the MacUpdate comments before buying this thing...
I feel sorry for the company, but i also feel sorry for the numerous clients that get fooled with this software. I too hoped for a Windows release, so i could share large catalogs. And now it's dead. And no infos or cautions on their website !
Not happy at all, but that's life, i'll be more cautious in the future :-( .

Development stopped. Here is the (German) answer of the AntZero whether the development of AV will be continued in the future: "Wir mussten die Entwicklung aus finanziellen Gründen momentan einstellen. Da wir ein kleines Team sind das entschieden hatte ohne Investoren zu arbeiten, um zukünftig besser auf die Bedürfnisse unserer Kunden eingehen zu können, hat der Verkauf alleine nicht ausgereicht."

Thank you for your posting! As I thought: AtomicView is dead. What a pity! AtomicView had a good start, but the development of the windows version took away too much energy from Antzero's team. So we still have to look out for a good DAM software.

By the way: It would be fine if the developers would clearly communicate on their website that AtomicView is no longer developed.

Beware! Since the last december, the online forum of AtomicView is closed due to spam. Now it's more than three months later, and the forum is still not yet open. I'm not sure whether AtomicView is dead or not. The last update for the Mac version of AtomicView is long ago, and a version for Windows is announced for years but still not available. That's why criticism arose in the AtomicView forum, and I'm quite sure that this is the reason the forum is not opened again.
To cut to the chase, Antzero is a small company, and if you buy AtomicView now, be aware that it will take a long time (months or years) until AtomicView makes the next step forward.

Sorry for that 2,5 stars rating above ; just clicked in the wrong place (BTW, I don't like this "rating without commenting thing")
I have been trying AV for two weeks with a limited amount of photos (Approx 1000)
What I like : pretty, nice colours, really fast.
What I don't like : the way you have to import photos (I much prefer the way Lyn or sigh- iView- let you navigate your HD and choose a folder) which leaves me totally lost at times ; the GUI is so "customizable" (?) that I sometimee can't revert to where I started from! The image display is not as fast as it is supposed to be (approx one second before the image is clear which is rather long if you wish to review your photos) ; not possible to export "tagged" photos as in iView.

Annoying, slow, clunky, memory hog. Crash prone. Own it, but alas unuseable.

iView MediaPro was/is much better (still runs on 10.6 if you have a copy around). For preview without ratings, give Lyn a try. Lightning fast RAW previews.

AtomicView has not yet grown up, but for me it's neither slow nor clunky nor crash prone. By the way, Expression Media (formerly iView Media Pro) is a LOT more expensive than AtomicView, so it's not fair to compare their feature sets without comparing their prize. That's why I cannot understand your low rating.

My time is worth a lot more than the price of either of these applications. If an application is not ready for full time use, it shouldn't be on the market, especially at a price tag of $75. Atomic View feels like a public beta to me, not a commercial app. Glad it's working for you though.

Hi, there has been no comment since 2008...
I'm looking for a replacement for iView Media Pro and can't afford PhotoMechanic.
Has anyone tried this with a large photo library? Thanks

Thank you for the hint: I did not know PhotoMechanic and will definitely try it out. For all other that are interested in PhotoMechanic, here's the company's homepage: http://www.camerabits.com

What do you mean by "a large photo library"? In my library, there are 30'000 photos, and AtomicView handles them well and fast. The problem I have with AtomicView is that I cannot do sophisticated renaming of my photos and that there is no template based HTML export.

Give Lyn a try. No rating functionality but a bullet fast RAW preview function.

Excellent !
Have to try it to make your own judgement...for myself I found my new iView Media Pro.
Much faster, it use all the cores of your Mac, you can work during importation, catalogs all your medias.
The screenshot presented here are not up with the beauty of the soft...I choose in the pref something more dark ala LR.
And this is only version 1.0..developpers are very reactives and are working hard on suggestions for the future ver.
I am delighted...do you a favor and go for a test drive...
There is a promo for early adopters...and the licence is good for two Mac.
Have a good day all.

Wow am blown away. This is by far the best image viewer/media player that has ever existed.

The myriad of options for viewing and watching media is astounding. Being able to view 4 movies at the same time while zooming in and swapping files in real time is just about the most amazing thing I seen on my Mac.

And finally a program that uses multiprocessors in my Mac Pro.

I think the only downside is the Price. Even with the 30% off discount I may have to drool and lust for this amazing app.
