    If you're familiar with Windows, a folder that has 50 pics in it....I can double click one and use the arrow keys to go up/down/back/forward.

    How can I do this?

    Not talking about the thumbnail folder view where I can do it on my Mac. An actual app.

    What? Just to view pictures?
    Not as hard as you might think on a Mac - and you don't need an app for that.

    The OS X system does that natively as part of the Quick-View feature:
    Open your folder of pictures, and select all files (Command-A)
    Press your space bar.
    Use your arrow keys to go through your pictures.
    Click the full-screen menu icon to lose the background distractions, if you like.
    You can click Play to let the pictures advance automatically, as a slide show.
    I use this feature all the time on a Mac.
