    I was just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the best image viewer for OSX?

    Just for viewing...?

    Probably not the best, but Preview is more than good enough for me... and simple... :)

    And with features like dragging images in and out of the drawer (even right from the drawer to trash), fair export options and the Slideshow I actually think it's quite nice...

    What Mitthrawnuruodo said.

    But if you are looking for something quick and dirty you could try the get info window using Option+Cmd+i that way the window stays live and you get to see oversized previews quickly.

    iView Media (or pro version if you want to pay for it)

    Shorted next question ;)

    Fullscreen View in Aperture!

    I use my mac book to edit them whilst viewing them on the 32inch! You cant get better than that!

    Looking to see if there are any better image viewing applications for OS X, I ran into this old thread. Sadly, I see very few choices here. Xee is the best one I've found in 2008 so far. I use XNView in Windows XP and I see there was an early attempt at an OS X verison, but sadly it's been discontinued thus far. Can anyone recommend any other viewers that might be BETTER than Xee 2.0? The nice thing about XNView is that it can view movie files inline just like pictures, thus keeping most media in one viewer.
