CNET Editors' review
WildBit Viewer offers users the ability to view, edit, and design slideshows with their pictures. With simple commands and fantastic results, photo lovers will find a lot to enjoy here.
We immediately felt that even novice computer users could navigate this program with its clearly labeled and intuitive layout; we didn't even need to visit the Help file to get started. Through an onscreen file tree we were immediately given the opportunity to view our photo folders as either an entire collection of thumbnails or a single large shot at a time. This was helpful for searching large folders. We found commands for tilting images, zooming, and renaming shots to be simple to operate and similar to many other photo-viewing software programs we've tested. The slideshow options were also nothing we hadn't seen in many other programs, with blown-up shots and smooth cycling through images. We also discovered that the program offers a simple picture editor as an added feature and saved us a step from having to use an outside program to apply filters or add text to a shot. The overall package worked well, but didn't break any new ground with image viewers.
Wildbit is a freeware program. We recommend this program, as it provided us with familiar options and simple control over our images and slideshows.

"Slow & Buggy"
Version: WildBit Viewer 6.0
Clueless of anything to admire
Takes forever to load the 1st image. Once the image is up, scrolling
other images is fast. Deleting an image is slow and multiple deletes will lock up my computer. The slide show works for a few images and
Probably works better with a faster computer and lots of RAM but a failure on my modest laptop CPU.
