"Simply a must-have image browser and slideshow app."

April 26, 2009  |  By adevadeh

 |  Version: Phoenix Slides 1.2.5

Pros

Fast, full screen image viewing. Really the only way to quickly go through large amounts of photos. The best implementation I have seen.

Cons

The new Quicklook feature is good enough for a few photos, so unless you really have large amounts of images, this app may not be necessary.

Summary

If you need to go through 100s of images, MacOS X has built in software that seems like a good way to handle it. For many reasons, iPhoto, Preview, or Quicklook all assume certain usage scenarios that are not always appropriate. Phoenix slides is made to show a lot of images quickly, and it excels at this task.

Imagine you are handed a DVD of images from a client and she tells you to choose 10 for the website. Well, you could awkwardly try to highlight them and press space bar, but the moment you switch to your IM client they all go away. You could drag them into iPhoto, but then you have to wait for them to import... and you didn't really want to import them anyway. Preview seems like a good choice, but there is no easy full screen slideshow presentation, and its hard to load images from multiple directories.

Pheonix Slides is the answer. Just drop the DVD onto the app, it quickly loads all the images, even in subfolders. Double-click for full screen slideshows, or quickly browse in thumbnail mode.

I'm really glad I found this program, its made my life easier and I really thank the author for giving it away for free.

"\"You had me at SUB-Folders!\""

February 22, 2008  |  By noominal

 |  Version: Phoenix Slides 1.2.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Thank you! Your product is fast and simple and gave me the "peek inside, inside, inside" I needed!

Sweet JezzusMarynJosef!!! ...Apparently it's too much to ask other media browsers to <b>just "SHOW ME the PICTURES!"</b> (Hmmm, another Jerry McGuire reference.)

But not this one! Phoenix Slides does exactly what it says it does, point it to the picture folders and it chews through every stinking sub-folder to layout a preview of your image.

The scale up works faster than Bridge or iPhoto, and the Reveal in Finder sealed the deal.

Not fancy, but fast and easy.

The only thing I might suggest is a right-click option on an image to "Open with..." but don't do it if it slows the app down.

"so good..."

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.


talk about ease of use! I was viewing and manipulating skides right from the get go. It took me a few seconds to realize this was an app that found my pics and allowed me to view them.

this will definitely help organize and create shows and delete the bad pics.

kudos to developer.

Summary

I came on this following the link from a recommendation to another Mac user in the Mac Tiger forums. Brilliant application, makes the handling of the umpteen photos I have in sundry folders on my hard disk, very easy indeed. Feel completely in control of them now. Thanks!
