LilyView is a lightweight, Mutli-Touch friendly image viewer that’s handy and doesn’t get in your way.

• Lightweight. There’s no image library to load, you just browse images in a folder.
• Chromeless. No controls are visible until they are really necessary.
• Multi-Touch friendly. You can literally touch the image when using a trackpad, but LilyView works just fine with keyboard and mouse.

And it's only the beginning…

Customer Reviews

Best for students and photographers

I was looking exactly this kind of image viewer. I deal a lot with photographed archival sources and photography in general. This is the most convenient image viewer thanks to its minimalist style and fast browsing (xee is very disappointing in that matter). This is the best alternative to Preview if you wish to easily browse images and use most monitor space.

I can’t set it as default image viewer

I can’t set it as default image viewer, it keeps poping up the banner that asks me to set it as default, I pressed every time but doesn’t work. It’s useless and really annoying!
