JustLooking 3.3 (Mac Image Viewer) now available for Download
By marcwan

Visit the JustLooking home page

I am thrilled to announce the immediate availability of JustLooking 3.3.2. JustLooking is a program to view pictures and images on your Mac OS X (Tiger or newer) based computer. JustLooking is a Universal Binary, and can be run on both PowerPC and Intel Macs. The program is and will always be very free

Version 3.3.2 of JustLooking is the best version yet, and contains some massive changes and improvements over previous versions:

  • Switching between images is significantly smoother and less jerky than before.
  • Images can now be sorted by the same order as “Finder”, or by date, with support for reverse sorting.
  • Shuffle mode for full screen slide show.
  • You can now rename files or move them to a different folder
  • When you ‘save as’ or move an image to a different directory, you can now tell JustLooking not to switch folders and reload the file list.
  • Image properties and meta data (i.e. Exif) are now properly saved along with files. Colour Profiles are also correctly managed now.
  • Zooming is fixed to be a bit less unpredictable
  • File resizing and saving is also much better than before, although, due to limitations in the CoreImage filters I’m using for resizing, still not perfect. The huge white lines seen in previous versions after resizing are now gone, but there are still some unfortunate artifacts on occasion. I will completely rewrite this code for the 4.0 series of JustLooking.
  • The JustLooking application icon looks less horrible now.
  • New Slovakian translation!

JustLooking 3.3 ships in the following languages:

  • French
  • Italian
  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish
  • Dutch
  • Slovenian
  • Polish
  • Korean
  • Catalàn
  • Finnish
  • German
  • Slovakian (new!)
  • Turkish (new!)
  • Croatian (new!)

Swedish, Russian, Traditional Chinese, and Norwegian have not been included in this version as they are getting too out of date now.

Feedback and Bug Reports

I will soon begin work on 4.0, although I have a full time job now (gotta pay the bills, y’see), so the progress will be a bit slower again. If you have any feature requests, please do let me know, and I will endeavour to add them.

My iPhone is dead, long live - no wait, it's just dead
By marcwan

In a reasonably recent article, I chronicled the purchase and subsequent untimely loss (via theft) of my first generation iPhone. While expensive and unfortunate, this had the nice side effect of giving me the chance to buy a second generation – 3G – iPhone to play around with some more.

Having had it for over two months now, I’ve been quite pleased with it, although the battery life leaves something to be desired. The 16G of storage and the better internationalisation support are huge enough sells on their own for me.

Given that the iPhone dev-team hasn’t cracked the 3G baseband yet and that I have been using such a non-cracked phone here in China for many weeks now, I was under the assumption that I was using an unlocked Hong Kong 3G iPhone, and could upgrade it as I wished to use it around the world.

It turns out I was wrong. Spectacularly so. Last night, after upgrading the phone to the 2.2 firmware (and therefore the 2.28.00 baseband), I now have an iPod Touch, with a permanent “No Signal” in the upper left corner. What happened? I do not, it seems, have an unlocked phone, but instead there’s a little shim SIM card inside the phone which does the unlocking for you, but only for specific basebands. While I can’t quite see which one I have, it clearly doesn’t like the 2.2 release’s new baseband, and stopped working entirely.

So, I have two choices:

  1. Given that new 2.2-enabled shim SIM cards are coming out, I can go to the same place I purchased the phone sometime later this week hopefully and get a new shim card to re-enable my China Mobile SIM card.
  2. I can otherwise wait for the dev-team to crack the 2.2 firmware’s 2.28.00 baseband, which will likely take a while, as they’ve only recently cracked the 2.11.07, and haven’t actually released that yet.

I could have avoided all of this by only updating the firmware and not the baseband, but that would have required understanding exactly what I had in my phone. Whoops.

Chipmunkninja.com Update
By marcwan

My trip back from Montréal to Beijing was considerably less triumphant than I had hoped, as I was struck by a severe plague and ended up spending 9 very miserable days in bed with a high fever and nasty cough. One might think that being confined to bed for a week would be a nice thing, but the stunning boredom that sets in after a while is quite unbearable. You’re too tired to really work hard, focus on TV or movies, or even really read a book, but so sick of sleeping that you crave doing something.

And so, I updated the chipmunkninja.com website. I’ve long hated my initial design with forums and my crappy del.icio.us tagging scheme, so I finally fixed those up and now have a proper tagging system, some fun stats on the right side, and paging, so you don’t have to view every single article on one page now.

It’s still a rather ugly shade of red and contains the finest in 2005 style, but that’s a project another day ….

Bugs, comments, or suggestions, feel free to add a comment or drop me a line. Always glad to hear from readers.

JustLooking 2.0 Preview!
By marcwan

So, after a month or so of active development, I’m almost ready with version 2.0 of JustLooking. I’m just waiting for some localisation help, and then I’ll go ahead with the release. The first releases were quite functional, but pretty ugly, I think. A few users from the internet made some suggestions on how to improve the UI and I have completely redesigned it.

Click for larger version

In addition to a complete update to the user interface, I have added the following new features to version 2.0:

  • Saving of rotated images (JPEGs, GIFs, PNGs, BMPs, and TIFFs)
  • Remote Control Support in slide show mode.
  • Image displaying and resizing is muuuuucchhh faster now.
  • Hold down the ‘OPTION’ key on startup goes to full screen slide show.
  • many bug fixes in the code, including some animated GIF problems.

I will spend the next week or so fixing the last couple of bugs in the program and waiting for the last bits of localisation help to come in, and will then release it both on this server and on the BitTorrent networks.

Please feel free to send me your requests for future versions or reports of any bugs or problems you find in the program. I’m thinking the next big features will lie in image resizing and saving of images in different formats.
