No setup process required
One of the main advantages of the application is that it does not need to be installed on your system, also bringing about more bonuses like no system registry modifications, or that you can easily keep it on a removable storage device along with your pictures and use it on the go.
Ingenious design and fun to use
The overall design is impressive, with a movable, small toolbar holding all implemented functions. What's more, images are added only by dragging them over a dedicated drop area, which states this so you don't get lost along the way. Unfortunately, you need to select and drag only image files, without the possibility to simply drop a folder in the specified area for the application to import content.
On the other hand, the display is ingenious, randomly spreading thumbnails all over your desktop. These are fully interactive and you can arrange them as you see fit, with even several dedicated functions to bring all of them together, spread them apart, or store them in a specific area of the screen.
Configure an play a slideshow
Furthermore, clicking on an image enlarges it for better analysis, while clicking again brings it back to the default thumbnail size. Moreover, there is even an integrated function that enables a slightly customizable slideshow, but it does not cover the whole screen unless you manually do so with imported files.
A few last words
On an ending note, Osiva manages to live up to expectations and provides an interesting approach on image viewing and analysis. Practicability is increased because it does not require an installation process, keeping your system clean and in case you display is touch-sensitive, the overall experience is twice as fun with the clever arrangement options and lack of a proper interface.
