Check out Iris. It’s a free public beta. I ran into this at Macworld Expo two weeks ago and it looks promising. If you have used it, please leave comments and let us know what you think.

  1. Hmmm… it requires Leopard, I wonder if it takes advantage of all the Core stuff. Can’t wait to get home to give it a whirl. (Wow, does that make me a geek or what- can’t wait to get home on a Friday to try a new app.)

  2. I’m running an up-to-date Leopard iMac. It’s a new aluminum machine 2.0 Ghz with 4 GB of RAM. I couldn’t make anything happen using a 3024×1998 JPG that was only 1.8 MB. It was just too slow.

    I have to say it seems more like an alpha than a public beta. I’d say it’s not usable, many filters improperly render.

    I am interested to see if anyone else has a different experience.

  3. I’m not sure how I found this but after looking at some screenshots, I downloaded it immediately. I’m impressed by the ui and I like having everything all together. It actually reminds me a bit of the aperture UI. One of the things I like about iris most besides the UI is the little pane that showS all your opened images. Normally when I’m working on a large project, I may have upwards of ten files open in photoshop jand when I need a certain image, I usually click on the minimized files in the dock until I find it. With this “file pane” I can quickly glance and find the file with ease.
