MAC Photo viewer like Irfanview and Faststone ????

    I have used the various viewers/organizers like Irfanview and
    Faststone, ACDsee etc. for years, in conjunction with PhotoShop. Love
    that "Hit E and you're working" capability.

    Now I'm teaching part time in a High School with mixed MAC and PC.
    Photoshop is on all machines, and FastStone on the PC's.

    Is There (I Hope!) something very similar for MAC?? IPhoto is NOT it:
    it has to import all your photos into its own database! And it hard
    to work on shared folders, which is a must for Yearbook work etc....

    Please tell me what to look for!

    Thanks!!

    GraphicConverter. Excellent for slideshow, resizing, converting and a
    ton of other stuff.

    I second the motion (love GraphicConverter for this and some other
    uses), but add a caveat: Be sure to buy Hagen's PDF manual with the
    program. It's only about $7 or so, is very good, and the PDF manual
    that comes with the program is useless.

    Thanks for the info! Question, isthere a 'free' or 'unrestricted'
    version??

    I'm happy to buy a copy with full features, but I need to load 30
    machines with a 'view and organize photos' capability, and have no
    school budget for this...

    I've never found a good photo browser for browsing directories like
    there are on the PC. I'm sure that someone will follow up my post and
    say there is "this browser and that browser on the mac." but all the
    ones I have seen are lousy.

    Don't you have Adobe Bridge? If you do, make sure you set the option
    for a distributed cache.
