A very sucessful 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.
