Still a great app, always one of my first downloads when I set up a new Mac.

As much as I don't want to sound ungrateful, because I'm totally not, I'm going to go into what I'd like out of this app in future. It's an awesome peice of software and when a dev goes to this effort for the good of everyone it's greatly appreciated. I just hope for more improvements to make the app more universally useful.

Firstly this is more a bug, the slideshow speed setting seems locked at 1 second (has been like this for a few revisons), changing the value in preferences doesn't seem to alter the slideshow speed.

Now onto the good stuff.
I run on a 1920x1080 screen, so being able to enable image "scale to fit" in windowed mode would be handy (perhaps with a "do not auto-scale beyond xxx% option) as lower resolution images are quite tiny on my display and I'm often using the program to not only browse photos but images used in development (having +/- zoom control in windowed mode would be nice too). I do work on a linux based cell phone os, typically this involves little buttons, touch screen keyboards, icons etc. all of relatively small resolutions (as would be expected when limited by a pocket sized touch screen). Cocoaslideshow for the most part allows me to quickly flick through these and find the appropriate base item to work on or a revision I'm happy with, but having these auto zoomed in windowed mode would allow detecting differences much faster as by default most of these items take up only a few cm of on screen real estate.

Ability to display animated gifs would also be very handy. It's not a great format I know, but it refuses to die and I'm always needing to work with them. I suspect if that's the case for me, it's the case for others, plus missing support of a relatively common format is always going to stick out like a sore thumb on an app like this.

Once again, great app, and many thanks to the developer, hope my criticism is constructive and not too blunt.

Great app, has been a favorite of mine for ages now, very quickly allows me to work through large folders of images and find what I want.

The one thing I'd love is better integration with Mac OS, so I can drag and drop images listed in the app to other locations, etc.

Nice alternative to menubar haxies that sometimes cause issues.

Look forward to seeing more configurability, adjustable measurment increments (kB/sec vs B/sec etc), ability to select what is monitored, ability to set a background and adjustable font size would be nice.

Maybe all this could be done via a module, though I'm yet to find any. I look forward to people developing some as I think this little util has a ton of potential.

Yes I would love scaling to fit in the windowed view also, as I usually rapidly flick through images of varied resolution in windowed view, it'd be nice to view them at a uniform size.

Thanks for your response and the software.

This seems to be the image viewer I have been waiting for, many thanks to the developer. Feature wise it's a little immature, but the implementation of what has been done so far is near perfect.

I'll be glad to see zoom when it comes, I hope the developer integrates an auto "size-to-fit" feature, so that smaller images can be automatically scaled up to fit the view area.

A search field would be nice also, so if looking through a large directory of unsorted images, one could type in a keyword and show all image filenames that have a partial match.

Overall this is a great app which makes scanning through large groups of images a breeze, I eagerly await future versions.

Works great on my Mac Mini (core 2 duo) thank you very much.

Excellent, nice to know I'm prioritizing my uploads to those who give the most in return. If only I could use it on every tracker (it's not an approved client in a few places so I have to fire up azureus for those occasions).
