Lightweight image browser and viewer.

Overview

Lyn is a fast, lightweight image browser and viewer designed for photographers, graphic artists, and Web designers.

Adjust exposure, color temperature, brightness, and contrast, or reveal image details with highlight and shadow adjustments.

Slow, confusing commands, could be a step over ViewIt 2.36 (too bad given up and lacking of some developing). Does not follow Mac specs, shortcuts don't happen, all on menu bar only, poor diashow implement, no bulk selection, no reliable renaming, no K4 support, slowing system down ... :-(

I can't figure out how to use it. I am just on the free trial and I am not about to buy something that gives me no clue how to use the damned thing..

Olen nyt 8 tuntia yrittänyt saada Lyn toimimaan MAC:issa. Aina vaan rantapallo pyörii. Myyjä vastaa aina sähköpostiin, että ota kopio alta ja lähetä valitukset>> questionacharge.com osoitteeseen. Olen kyllä tottunut, että jos myyjä myy, niin myyjä vastaa myös myynneistään. Sain kun aikanini tinkasin sähköpostiosoitteen valitusosastolle. Paska taisi tulla ostettua?>>>I am now 8 hours trying to get to work Lyn MAC in. Always the beach ball spins. The seller will always respond to the email to take a copy below and send complaints >> to questionacharge.com. Yes, I have grown accustomed to, that if the seller is selling, so the seller is also responsible for their sales volumes. I received a time when I typed an email address for the appeals department. Shit you bought?

Good design but poor quality. Buggy when dealing flag/rating overlay, horrible & sluggish scrolling interaction when browsing in thumbnail view, poor performance when viewing pictures on network volume. Uncompetitive when there are other similar (and free) alternative apps.

There's a bug in Lyn I've reported numerous times - and never received word from the developer. If I select a series of images I cannot do a batch copyright or keyword on these selected images. A problem I had hope the developer would correct. But when I can't get even a reply to my question that's disappointing.
