1.0.2 (See all)

Riffle is a lightweight image-browsing tool designed to help you find photos stored on your computer quickly. In addition, the application works as a convenient image viewer and photo catalog generator.

Finding photos and other types of images with this program is a hassle-free task. All you need to do is drag and drop files, folders, app packages, and bundles onto the Riffle's icon or onto the main window, and the scanning process will start immediately. A drop-down menu offers two alternative methods to select the computer location you intend to scan for images – therefore, you can inspect the tree-structure of your system and select a root directory, or you can retrieve the Finder's current selection. You will appreciate the tool's ability to identify images located in invisible folders. This way, the program will display all pictures in the parent folder, even when it includes sub-folders that were marked as invisible earlier.

Once the scan is over, the view panel will display the images that were found in the selected location, the name of each file and, optionally, the document's path components. Browsing through the identified pictures is done easily by using either the mouse scroll-wheel or the arrow keys of the keyboard. You can view the pictures in their original size, or you can scale them up to fit the window. What is more, you are able to create a catalog of your photos for future reference or simply for sharing. The catalog will be saved as a PDF document. Before exporting to PDF, you have the chance to select the page size, the number of images per sheet, as well as the resolution of your catalog.

In short, Riffle offers a convenient solution to locate quickly and effortlessly the pictures you are looking for. The fact that it can generate a catalog based on the results found will help you in keeping a close record of your photos.
