    Is there an image viewer for Mac OS X that works the same way the one in Windows does, where you can open one image and use the left and right arrows to cycle through images in the directory?

    what's wrong with preview? open the images you want to view and scroll through them?

    I've heard good things about this:

    http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/19978

    Xee is a lightweight, fast and convenient image viewer and browser. It is designed to be a serious tool for image viewing and management, with a sleek and powerful interface.

    * Reads and views a large number of image formats. (Any format QuickTime or Preview can open, plus several more, including PCX and Amiga IFF-ILBM.)
    * Very fast, and uses less memory than most other image viewing tools.
    * Uses OpenGL to display and scroll images smoothly.
    * Easy browsing through directories of images - open any file in a folder and use the toolbar, keyboard shortcuts or mouse wheel to view the other images in the same folder.
    * Easy copying, moving, renaming and deleting of images while viewing.
    * Can do lossless JPEG transforms, which us very useful to rotate your digital photos quickly without sacrificing image quality.
    * Highly streamlined interface, with customizeable keyboard shortcuts.
    * Japanese localization included.




    It appears to be PowerPC only at the moment though.

    You can also just do command+a to select all and double click one selected file to open preview with all images in preview so you can use the up and down arrows to scroll through them. That's almost the same thing that Windows Picture and Fax Viewer does.

    Another great option is use the Slideshow built-into the Finder.

    Select all the photos you want in the Finder (an entire folder full cmd-A). And Cntrl-click and select slideshow. If you haven't checked this out, it is quite useful!

    Tiger and Xee - Perfect Fit

    Xee works perfectly under Tiger. The only feature I still need is slideshow, but other than that, this app is simply great.

    I bought ViewIt (http://www.hexcat.com/viewit/) a long time ago, and it's been absolutely perfect. I really like the filmstrip view which appears when scrolling during full-screen viewing. It isn't free, but personally I've found it well worth the nominal price.
