    I'm tired of using "preview" It's clumsy. Anyone know a good thumbnail viewing program for Macs that is free?

    I can right click and go to slideshow but there is no thumbnail view. Only add to iPhoto.

    During the slideshow there should be some icons at the bottom. One is a bunch of squares that shows everything selected as thumbs.

    preview can be pretty efficient if you select a group of photos, and then hit apple+O. the tray that pops out allows you to view multiple photos at once.

    I prefer using the finder to select pix I want to view, then just double clicking (or command+o).

    i don't like it ffor the simple fact that you can't hit next to view another picture in the folder (in the same window).

    Greatest first post in the history of OT!! :bowdown:

    I've been looking for something for OS X for a long time that would allow me to just open one pic in a folder and then browse the rest of the folder (like I do with ACDSee under WinXP).
