Most versatile and useful "viewer" I have ever used

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.

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