Corduroy Code’s Fileloupe 1.0 for Mac OS X Yosemite combines the features of a photo viewer, video player and document browser into a single, fast app. It can easily handle thousands of files.

Harnessing the power of Apple’s Quick Look technology, Fileloupe offers users one of the fastest ways to browse, view and share photos, videos, PDFs and documents. Quick Look is a a quick preview feature that Apple introduced in Mac OS X 10.5. While OS X’s Finder has always had icon previews, Quick Look allows users to look at the contents of a file in the Finder at full or near-full size (depending on the size of the document relative to the screen resolution).

Fileloupoe doesn’t require a lengthy import process, doesn’t use a master library and never moves or copies your files. It eliminates the need have to open multiple windows or multiple applications to quickly view the contents of a folder. Videographers, in particular, will really appreciate Fileloupe’s media browsing capabilities and advanced video playback controls.”

The app boasts a fast image viewer for both thumbnail and full size display. There’s copy & paste and drag & drop support for inserting images into third-party applications. And there’s support for most common image formats including RAW photos.

Fileloupe’s variable playback rates for video include slow-motion playback along with inverted orientation correction, track scrubbing, frame stepping and frame-to-image exporting support.

The utility provides a PDF viewer for viewing multiple PDF documents side by side and viewing different sections of a single PDF document within the same window. There’s advanced support for viewing complex PDF documents, like maps and schematics, in a high-performance mode that dramatically improves scrolling and zooming.

Support for filtering, flagging and sorting makes it easy to find and select specific files for viewing, sharing or to use in another application. Fileloupe is extensible via third-party Quick Look plugins to add previewing support for files that aren’t natively supported by OS X.

Fileloupe 1.0 costs $29.99. It’s available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Productivity category.
