As of version 2, I would've given this app a thumbs up. It's rapidly starting to suck.

The developer has chosen to redo the GUI in what he calls widget-style, resulting in yet another oddball OS X application that doesn't look or act like an OS X application should.

Also, if you're using Appfresh to keep your system up-to-date, the direct link to the file gets redirected to the developer's blog for some reason known only to the dev.

CocoThumbX is a useful application poorly executed.

This app is most useful sitting in the dock, where pictures, documents, and movies can be dragged and dropped into the CocoThumbX icon. The program will create the thumbnails as you like and then quit gracefully. Until OS X gains Vista-ish automatic preview icons (which it doesn't look like it will in Leopard) this is going to make my day.

This app makes sifting through my hard drive so much more enjoyable - I only wish it could handle .CBR/.CBZ comic book archives.

Another one of those fabulous one-trick ponies. But this pony does that trick speedily with an almost excessive array of options. Plus, it has one option I find to be extra super cool: It will round the corners of the picture icons it generates.

Also useful for reverting tiny thumbnail icons back to their generic format.

The icons that this program generates are too big (filesize) for my liking. They should only be a few K but they're 50K or more. If you could at least control the file size when doing a batch, I would use this.

nice app, very interesting

Incredibly handy for giving generic-icon files some visual context.
