Editors' Review

by   / June 10, 2013

With a rather basic but intuitive interface, SimpleImage for Mac offers more control and customization options for viewing images, videos, and slideshows. In addition to being a viewer, the program offers some useful image editing options, as well.

At around 26MB the download takes a couple of minutes to complete. The program installs in just a few seconds, though, with a drag and drop in Mac's Applications folder. Upon startup the only window visible is the Inspector window, which displays relevant information regarding the file currently opened. Apart from being a typical image and movie viewer, SimpleImage for Mac also lets the user optimize files and apply certain effects and adjustments. Using a JPEG file we were able to access the viewer's main navigation menu, displaying options such as rotate; set image display size to match the most common photo paper sizes for printing; and the Quick Peek panel where the user is able to sort files by name or date. A small yin/yang-looking icon provides access to the Adjustments and Effects panel, where the user is able to adjust image sharpness, saturation, hue, contrast, exposure, and similar, as well as to apply and adjust certain effects such as bloom and gloom, blur, pixelate, and crystallize, etc. A small icon opens options for exporting images optimized for the Web in either JPEG, PNG, or GIF format by adjusting dimensions and quality. When playing slideshows, the user is able to adjust the play interval of slides and specific transition mode, as well as add a soundtrack, which is a nice touch. During testing all the options worked as advertised.

SimpleImage for Mac offers a more customizable image and video viewer. It's perfect for users who need to quickly edit photos or create interactive slideshow presentations with music.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of ScreenSleeves for Mac 2.0.1. The trial version has limited functionality.
