Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
Xee is an streamlined and convenient image viewer and browser. It is similar to Mac OS X's Preview.app, but lets you easily browse the entire contents of folders and archives, move and copy image files quickly, and supports many more image formats. It also shows animation for formats which support this.
It is designed to take full advantage of touch controls, allowing you to swipe through images in a folder one by one. You can of course also zoom and rotate files using multi-touch gestures.
Xee can also display huge amounts of metadata from image files. For this, it uses Image::ExifTool, one of the most comprehensive metadata libraries.
Loading images directly from archive files is also possible, and Xee works very well as a comic book reader.
Xee offers multiple visual styles. This allows you to, for instance, pick one which is less distracting while sorting through photos.
What's New in Version 3.5.2
* Support RAR 5 archives and CBR files.
* Fix trackpad rotation.
indie app product at its best - great quality!
Its packed with great and unique features.
Personally I was pleasantly surprized with loss-less image extractions from PDF. Xee even saved all the metadata, like color space.
Give it a try and see what it could do for you!
Wish I could return
Clunky; the app only appears on one of my two monitors (on El Capitan on Mac Pro.) The app does not traverse subfolders. The command to “browse subfolders” was missing so I did add the shortcut, but even then it won’t do that. Once at the end of a browsed folder (again, not all subfolders) you are forced yet again to go to Finder to traverse to the next folder.
Am reminded again why buying anything from the AppStore is stupid.
Xee 2.X series is much faster (and free)
When I saw that Xee 3.X was available on the App store, I was excited to buy it and support the developer.
However, I noticed that Xee 2.X which was free for download was much faster and felt lighter than version 3 in the Mac App store.
I’ve since deleted the Mac App store version and continue using the free 2.X version even though I paid for 3.
I sure wish I knew why version 2 is lighter and faster than 3!
