Phiewer PRO - Photo editor and image viewer for Mac.
Phiewer PRO is the easiest and fastest way to view and edit your images. It's folder based so you can just browse and edit your media in one window without any extra clicking and selecting...

*** Fast and Responsive User Interface ***
It's incredibly fast and responsive, your media fits fluidly right into your viewport, of course also in fullscreen mode.

*** Filters ***
In the filter section every single image can be edited. There are lots of adjustments like brightness, saturation, contrast, noise, red/green/blue colorisation and more. Every single filter preset can be saved. So keep your favourite adjustments as a preset. Your filter adjustments can also be added on the fly to camera RAW images and exported to png for example.

*** Effect Presets ***
Put beautifully preset effects to your images like Black&White, Polaroid, Technicolor or make it a sunset Boulevard. Your added effects can also be added to your camera RAW images and exported to png for example.

*** Adjustments ***
In the Adjust section you can use the usual image editing tools like align, flipping horizontally or vertically, rotation and cropping. All adjustments can be saved to the existing or a new image. A modern tinyfier compression library makes you images as small as possible while keeping the image quality.

*** Quick Controls ***
A simple controls panel and lots of shortcuts for browsing, rotating, play/pause, toggle fullscreen, toggle info panel and much more is built right in. And hey, it's also possible to rotate videos.

*** File Information / Exif Data Viewer ***
For any of your media you can toggle the info panel to see detailed information and Exif data for example. Phiewer also displays most common RAW camera image formats.

*** Multimedia Slideshow ***
Just hit the Slideshow play button to view your media folders automated with nice transition effects and background music. You can set the interval speed of each slide, choose transition effects and select your music from really cool handpicked background tracks. There is also the possibility to select your own music from your hard drive.
Setting the Slideshow to loop and you will have endless running Memories. You can even play videos and audio mixed within your Slideshow and the music gets automatically dimmed or muted for a nice Media Center like entertainment experience.

Thumbnails Don't Generate

The only time the sidebar thumbnails generated for me was the VERY FIRST TIME I opened the program. Thereafter all I see are black squares. There is no way of contacting the developer directly, and the "support" page you're led to also has no way to submit bugs.

With the deprecation of 32 bit support, my years-long use of the classic "Just Looking" app was no longer an option and I was seeking a replacement. Phiewer provides that basic animated gif viewing functionality, but its refusal to display thumbnails and its constant nagging you to allow access every time you open a new folder (even though I gave it full disk access in System Preferences) are annoyances that need to be addressed by the developer.

Slow and preview non existent

Purchased to view my ORF raw files. It does view raw files but not as shown in the above video. The preview window on the left showing file that are in a folder only shows blank squares for my raw files. Only after I click on one, then it loads and you can view it. Waste of money for me. :-(

Just What I Wanted

I needed a simple slideshow viewer that didn't force me to make a video, and Phiewer Pro is it. I also wanted a program that would display the file name, and Phiewer Pro not only displays it but lets you choose the size and place it anywhere on the screen. Lastly, I wanted a program that would automatically play videos in the slideshow stream, and again Phiewer Pro does it. If I was forced to complain, I'd say the display size options aren't clear, but a little experimentation cleared up the confusion. Great program, thank you!

Thank you very much for your feedback.
