Most versatile and useful "viewer" I have ever used

about Preview · ·

I work a lot with images and PDF documents on Linux, Mac, and Windows system. I have tried a lot of image viewers, image editing tools, and PDF viewers. This one is, by far, the best image viewer I have used and gives one the ability to do basic image markup and manipulation. It also allows markup of PDF documents.

It also is very good at performing basic conversion of image and PDFs files from one format to another.

I've tried other image/PDF viewers but I keep coming back to Preview because of its capabilities.

So simple and intuitive!

about Preview · ·

Preview is simply beautiful!! It is so simple and just works as expected for viewing, light formatting and annotations! On top of that it supports a bunch of file-formats including RAW, even microsoft documents formats and lets you edit and sign PDF-files. I absolutely love it!

One downside is that I can't flick through my pictures easily in preview, but really my only complaint!
