So my search finally comes to an end. I found this handy util, in response to my rant yesterday. Mark sends me an email from Aussieland (after stumbling upon my blog), mirroring my complaint about the lack of an ACDSee level viewer and file manager for OSX. He points me to Ekspos Image Viewer. It is a Java Application, close and similar to ACDSee in layout, and very Linux (KDE) in it’s look and feel. But it works splendidly, and very fast indeed. I believe I have found the answer to what I was looking for. It can be downloaded from http://www.kiyut.com/products/ekspos/index.html.
To run it under Mac OS X, you can either double click on
Or via the Terminal
java -jar /Volumes/YourVolume/ekspos/lib/ekspos.jar
And la voilà! Works like a charm! Thanks Mark!
