The needed viewer for 'Windows to Mac' users


I switched from Windows to Mac, and it is silly that there is no image viewer that comes with Mac that can scroll through the images like a flip book. There is the option to press spacebar and scroll through in Finder, but that will not enable the user to scroll through the images in the right order. I previoulsy used Tovi, but I had problems with that viewer. ViewPic, on the other hand, has a very clean and simple interface that can do just that simple job I was looking for. It also comes with other features, but they don’t overcrowed the product. After my purchase, there was some confusion about not being able to scroll though my images. I contacted support to see what was going on, and I was explained the problem, and it was fixed. It had to do with Mac’s security settings. The staff was very friendly. I say this is a recommended product. I hope more files become compatible.

Good photo viewing app for Macbook Air


This is a well designed photo viewing app that can open one, or all of the photos in a folder, allowing you to scroll through them - full screen / dark background - with the arrow keys, rendered according to their refinement, offering a drop down menu of editing features including resizing and zoom. This app does not feature a fancy slide show with dissolve and background music - thank God! Sometimes we DON’T want all that sexy stuff goin’ on. I download a lot of photos of an adult nature and this app offers a pleasing platform on which to view them.

Decent but room for improvement.


I wanted this to go through photos and delete the undesired ones before sorting and backing up the desired ones. The chromeless mode is great and photos render very quickly, unlike MacOS’ built-in preview function.

The biggest flaw with ViewPic is that there are no keyboard shortcuts for anything other than pinch-to-zoom. This means I have to click and confirm each deletion. I cannot even drag to trash from thumbnail view. Considering their website is dead and it has not been updated in 3 years it is safe to pass on this app unless you need something marginally better than what MacOS has built-in.

Developer Response

Hi daversion, thanks for your feedback. We just fixed the server so the website is back now, sorry for the problem. Keyboard shortcut sounds very useful, we will try to add the shortcut in next version. We added the confirm notice just in case users remove the file by mistake, we'll also try to add an option in the preferences. If you have any other suggestions, please feel free to contact us via, we'd love to keep improving ViewPic. Thanks!
