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.

"Deal Breaking Flaws"

January 16, 2010  |  By Brent212

 |  Version: WildBit Viewer 5.6

Pros

Didn't waste time finding any pros since the cons were immediately apparent and made it clear I could never use this program.

Cons

Incredibly small amount of configuration settings
Can't scroll other than by dragging the scroll bars (who does that?)
Can't paste a copied selection from one image into another in any useful way.

Summary

The scroll wheel on my mouse controls the zoom, while I'd rather it move the image up and down (scroll). Should be a setting for this, in case anyone actually wants to use it for zooming (if the programmers knew what they were doing, they'd make it zoom when the control or shift key was held down, which is what I'm pretty sure Photoshop does).

If you have two images open, and you select a small square in one image and copy it, you should be able to switch to the other image and paste that square into the image, and then be able to drag it around to place it wherever you want. However, when you paste it into the other image, the copied square gets pasted into the center, but the entre image around it gets erased. WEAK. You can draw a square in the second image, and then when you paste it will just fill up the square, but then it'll be resized and the proportions are likely to be off, unless you somehow figure out how to draw a square of the exact pixel dimensions that the selection was. Crazy.

One of the most common things I use an image utility like this for is to save screen captures, many of which are of web pages (like receipts) or diagrams (for work) that take up more than one screen. I need to be able to create a big blank image, paste the screen shot into it and scroll down and paste the next screen shot into the same image. No way to do that with this program, as far as I can tell.

Plus, the inability to scroll with the arrow keys, page up/down keys, or scroll wheel is ridiculous.
