A very special iView Multimedia user makes these comments.
I've always preferred bits to atoms. But my Mac started looking like
my photo shoebox - stuff everywhere. I don't need overkill. I simply
need an easy-to-use, powerful, "shoebox" organizer for my
photorealistic renderings, hi-res textures, and even digital photos
of my family vacation. iView Multimedia is my solution.
