Both applications were updated, among other things, support for 10.11 (El Capitan) was improved. See PixCompare and PixVeew on lakehorn.com.
For PixVeew, I’ve decided to remove the “Plus Mode” In-App purchase. In the 6 months I’ve had this feature, about 60 users actually payed for this upgrade. This does not add up for me. The additional effort is not worth the earnings in any way. Therefore, I’ve removed the In-App purchase and activated all features in the basic mode, i.e. unlimited printing and recompressing.
I want to sincerely thank the 60 people who chose to pay for the “Plus Mode”. You still made a difference! Together with the 4000+ users, this justifies the continuation of the development of PixVeew. New features and versions will be available in the future. If you have any specific request or idea, contact me!

New version V4.1(.1) was posted today to the Mac App Store. Update includes:
- Improved performance on the comparison part of more than 2x

- Added Finder server so that you can start a compare of a folder directly from within the Finder
- some bug fixes and improvements to the compare algorithm

Version 4.01 of PixCompare improves comparison performance by more than 2x. Also updated the minimal requirements to Mac OS X 10.8.
Version 1.1 of PixVeew (new name, changed due to already a lot of PixViewer apps floating around). Added some controls in full screen view that were available in the old FastPic. I’ll add more feature from the old apps, but they will be available as an in-app purchase only.
Using PixCompare, you can compare picture files to search for duplicates or similar pictures in a large collection of picture files. It works on JPEG, PNG and GIF files.
I finally finished the Cocoa update for PixCompare! This was a complete rewrite, so that current and future Mac OS releases will be supported properly. Starting with this version, I’m also going to charge a small fee for the application. I plan to add new features over the next couple of months, including the now missing printing functionality. If you have any ideas or feature requests, contact me!
PixViewer is a simple any easy picture viewer for the Mac. Its main purpose is to browse quickly through a folder of image files. You can also directly move files to the trash while browsing.
The old FastPic was developed using the Carbon library, which is no longer properly supported. I had to rewrite the application from scratch for Cocoa. Over time, I’ll add all past features from FastPic plus add new features, some if which will be available in a pro mode only.
I’ve fixed several memory leak bugs, also I moved to SDK 10.7 so it should work nicely on Lion. And, also for Lion, I’ve created a high-res icon for the application.
