Missing Raw file support

I bought this app to replace the Preview App that came with my new Mac Book Pro. Preview won’t let me simply go to the next image in a folder. I’ve used a windows program- Irfanview for years and miss it on the Mac. If this Image Viewer App offered Raw support, I’d give it a 5 star rating. I am a photographer and I like to simply browse through a folder of images, without opening Lightroom or Photoshop. I shoot in Raw format, but this Image Viewer won’t support Raw images. It’s easy enough to convert them to jpegs for browsing. But, it took a web search to figure out how to make it my default image viewer for the jpegs! Coming from a PC, I had no idea you click Get Info to change a default browser- but that’s my issue, not this Apps.

Really useful to sort through photo collections

I've got dozens of folders with different photo collections, and I often need to select one to send to a friend or a family member. The Image Viewer app is the quickest way I've found to sort through a folder to find what I'm looking for. It's other features make it even more handy to manage the photos that I don't store in iPhoto.

I’ve been using this app for several years now and the current version has gotten even more useful, especially with the more complex Photos App replacing iPhoto.

full screen slide show the downer for this app

I was looking for a photo viewing application that would allow slide shows and manual advance to next image. While this app does that the slideshow is only full screen. this is a show stopper for me as when going through images I have other apps up noting the image. Seems like there should be a means to run slideshows without the app going full screen. Outside of that this is a simple to use image viewer that allows you to view a thumbnail view of single image view of the directory you are in.
