The magazine was moderately successful, though it was never regarded as one of the first rank of science fiction magazines. It achieved its greatest success under editor Frederik Pohl, winning the Hugo Award for best professional magazine three years running from 1966 to 1968. If was merged into Galaxy Science Fiction after the December 1974 issue, its 175th issue overall.

See Magazine (whose title was likely a takeoff on the title of the popular photo news magazine " Look ") was one of those sleazy men's magazines which had begun popping up in the early 1940s that consisted of news articles spiced up with loads of  "cheesecake" photos of scantily clad women in bathing suits (or as time progressed, wearing nothing at all). The twist here is that the photo editor who selected all those cheesecake photos for See was a woman, Sally Breslow....
