What's New

Version 5.5.1

- Tabs are now available in the windows. When tabs are being displayed, if you do some operations such as change of the color tone or adding of transparent color, new image will be displayed in a new tab instead of in a new window. This function is effective only when the newly displayed image is the same size as the original image. Also, in multiple tabs displayed in one window, the display position and the magnification scale are synchronized.
- In order to comply with Apple's security policy ATS (App Transport Security), the function to display the remote file by specifying the URL is removed.
- Bug Fix: ToyViewer would hang when the color panel is used to select colors.

Ratings and Reviews


This is a pretty cool app. And it's free.

What's not to like? It's free, fun, doesn't take up much space, and I made a pretty cool wallpaper with it in less than 5 minutes. It's a little a tricky at first, but don't let that discourage you because it's easy to use after a few minutes. You also don't need an undo option because it layers the effect in different windows in progresssion to one another for comparing and contrasting. So if you don't like the most recent edit all you have to do is click on the red 'x' located in the upper left corner where it should be and try again. And did I say this app is free?


Terrific lil' application

Great for playing around with images quickly. Instead of utilizing live preview or undo, it generates a new picture each time you modify the image in any way - which can feel odd at first, but really encourages experimentation. It's extremely easy to do side-by-side comparisons of tweaks.

Don't like the filter/effect you just applied? Close the new window (command-w works fine) to get your 'undo'. This 'have to start over' chatter is rubbish.


Quick and easy

Works fine (Intel iMac, OS-X 10.8.2), and the price is hard to beat. People should learn to use software before writing reviews! Ignore the "can't undo" nonsense -- every change you make creates a new picture in a new window. Close it, and your previous version is right there. As for "nothing happens": the program launches, the menu bar appears, and you have to OPEN A FILE if you want to see anything.
