Working with lots of various image formats, I often need to explore folders with a sort of “thumbnail view” enabled. Usually, either the OS or Picasa does just fine. Sometimes, however, I’m in need of exploring folders containing Adobe Illustrator AI files, EPS files or other vectorized file formats. In these cases, neither Picasa or the OS will do. Currently, I’m stuck with Adobe Bridge as the only software that can show me vector and bitmap image thumbnails side by side. Alas, Bridge sucks more than a collapsed dwarf star.
Is there an alternative? (I’m looking for a Windows alternative, but Mac users are welcome to chime in).
