SneakPeek Photo for Mac1.1

09 September 2011

Quick Look Plugin geared specifically for photographers.

What is SneakPeek Photo for Mac

SneakPeek Photo is the first Quick Look Plugin geared specifically for photographers. No longer do you have to import a picture into a photo application just to get detailed information about the shot. With SneakPeek Photo simply click on the unopened photo file (no matter where it is, even on your card reader) and hit the space bar. Up pops the picture into a large view that immediately gives you the detailed information you need. On the top bar, the much needed basics such as the type of file, its size, f-stop, focal length, color Sfile (sRGB, ProPhoto, etc) even a mini histogram. But there's much more. Also on this view you'll see buttons which will give you Exif data, all the camera settings, a Loupe View with high resolution zooms, and a large Histogram to see the blueprint of your shot. If the photo is geotagged, you'll not only see the coordinates, but a nifty map of where the picture was taken. Plus there's even a link to a more detailed map online.

What's new in SneakPeek Photo

Version 1.1:
  • Compatible with OS X 10.7 Lion with updated look.
  • Improved stability.
  • Fixed the "missing" Picture Style icon in the toolbar.
  • Miscellaneous bug-fixes.

This was a good product, however CodeLine killed it. It's no longer available for sale and doesn't appear as a product on their web site. I'm giving it a low overall rating because of it's demise.

This would be great, if it could handle Panasonic RW2 files. Overall looks like a worthwhile plugin.

Although I like and bought this plug-in, it lacks some basic feature, the most important being to bypass SneakPeek Photo when we just want to have a slideshow without all informations provided by SPP. Moreover, I never got an answer to my mail asking for this feature. I see that they have released today an iPad/iPhone version which means that they've put their ressources on this more profitable channel rather than improving their products. It's almost a year that they haven't updated their product. Too bad.

No support for PNG files. Would be nice when you hovered your mouse over those info icons at the top that their pop up windows didn't sit in the middle of the image. Why not put them down the side like SneakPeek Pro?

It sorta works, but when I want total full screen and no borders full of labels, I can't turn it off. The biggest problem is that my images look a little blurry on my laptop with this enabled, and they look sharper with just plain old QuickLook.

This app is a nice addition to Quick Look, but still has a few idiosyncrasies to work out. It provides a clean way to see EXIF and other info with quick look, and had no problem with image files from my Canon point and shoot, as well as my Nikon D90 (with RAW files). The loupe function is a bit odd, and that's where I have my issues. First, it can be active all the time, inactive all the time, or triggered with the caps lock key. Unfortunately, I found the loupe difficult to trigger with caps lock key. It worked for my NEF (Nikon Raw) files, but not consistently with the jpeg copies of those files, or JPEG originals from my point and shoot. It seems you have to click on caps lock, then choose or scroll to the image; you can't have it selected already. I would suggest making the loupe pop up in the window if you hold down a modifier key (like option or control?), or at least turn on while you have the preview window open with the caps lock key. My other comment is about support and feedback for the developer and the product site. The in-app info box says to go to the website for info and tips. There is minimal info, and no real tips that I can see. Furthermore, there is no clear way to send feedback to the developer via the app or the website. This is a must, particularly for a product that needs some work still. Looking forward to seeing future versions.

I tried the new version, it fixes all the problems I encountered with the original 1.0 release, so I bought it. It is dead-simple to use and looks great. If I could choose what items to show/hide, it would be perfect.

Yeah, I wish I read some reviews before plunking down $10 for this. When it works it works okay. Two big problems: 1/ I find that some b&w or grayscale jpgs will cause the quicklook daemon to crash. I sent Code Line the files that cause this on March 7th and I have yet to hear back. 2/ So, they install a prefpane along with the plugin, right? You'd think there's an 'On/Off' switch like with Squeeze, Time Machine, etc.. but nooooo. So if you do get this crash you must de-install. 4 stars for what it is when it works, -1 for no support, -1 for no 'off' switch for when I just want normal Quicklook. And I should add another -1 for making me install / de-install and waste time. This needs more polish. There it is.

While it is easy to use, my images (including jpg) had a bitmapped look to them, especially if there was rasterized type. Still needs work and will be a great product once it's been thoroughly vetted. But not displaying an RGB jpeg at 72 dpi and choking on other popular formats makes it undercooked. Immediately uninstalled it (that worked great!).

I tried this and then all my greyscale TIFFs started showing up as thumbnails in Quicklook. trashed - too bad since EXIF stuff is nice and I use Sneakpeek Pro for Indesign/AI files.

SneakPeek Photo is a useful enhancement to QuickLook, and version 1.0 is a good start. I won't be buying it at this time, however. The main reason is that it chokes on 16-bit grayscale TIFFs, of which I have many (it handles 16-bit colour TIFFs okay). It also doesn't seem to even want to touch PSD files, as they appear in the plain vanilla QuickLook window, not the SneakPeek Photo window. The other reason I won't be buying it just yet is that the EXIF, GPS, IPTC and other pop-up info panels are information overload. I would really like some way of customizing these and turning off the fields I don't want to see. As it is, it's difficult to find the information I'm looking for among a dozen or so items.

Downloading the dmg in Snow Leopard results in a 'There May be a problem with this disk image. Are you sure you want to open it?' message. Not sure why....
