Works Great but needs some basic features.

I got this to replace a program which stopped working properly. Image Viewer runs super fast and I dont have to wait for thumbnails to load. For the most part this get’s the job done, because I needed something to display thumbnails on a grey background. However, this could use improvements to make it that much better.

1.) It needs to have a navigation bar on the left so the users can quickly browse directories without having to go to open them individually.
2.) Give us an option to set the background color to anything we want. The grey is nice, but I wish it were darker and I dont want to use black.
3.) It needs an auto refresh or manual refresh button so that when an image gets changed or updated it will show those changes. Right now I have to close the app and reopen it to see the changes of an image take place.

This is my must have app!

I have tried many image or photo viewing programs in the past and was very happy to find this app. It can load thousands of photos in just a few seconds. It supports the RAW files from my DSLR camera and shows the EXIF information. I really like the layout, keyboard commands, mouse scroll wheel support, and user preferences. The interface is simple and works great! Update: Really like the changes to the app and backing up during a random slideshow is great!

This app is incredible

This Image Viewer does everything I need. It is super easy to use and I love that you can set the thumbnail size for both full screen and “windowed” screen. Thank you for adding RAW file support and animated GIF support. This app is really the best I have tried!
