Editing your photos can be a lot of work. It makes the process of selecting, organizing and adding metadata to your images so much easier. Here are some of the key features that help you get things done more quickly and accurately.
Features and Highlights
Fast Viewing / Culling
Go from your memory card to working on your best images faster than ever before. Ingest, cull, rate, and organize for a quicker, more efficient workflow.
Work How You Want
Let's work together. Photo Mechanic is built to play nice with your other post-processing and creative tools so that you're in control.
Captions, Keywords, And Copyright
A picture is worth a thousand words, but only the embedded metadata counts. Get your images tagged faster with crucial info like credit and copyright to protect your business.
The Contact Sheet is the heart of your workflow. See your image thumbnails, edit and organize quickly and efficiently. The app puts you in control.
Preview Raw Files Fast
Flip from one image to the next without any render delay. With thousands of images, the savings really add up.
Sometimes you need more than one keyword to describe (and find) an image. It helps you add keywords in many ways. Structured Keyword lists allow you to add related keywords fast.
Automatically add EXIF camera data to your images like focal length, serial number, or ISO to metadata fields like captions or keywords.
Work faster when you copy, delete, tag, watermark, rename, resize, and add IPTC metadata to lots of photos at once.
Move, Copy, & Rename
Add capture time to filenames. Create dated folders on the fly. Copy files to multiple destinations at once. PhotoMechanic's file-management tools are incredibly powerful.
Save time typing long complex text with Code Replacements. A few keystrokes can add entire sentences to your captions.
Geotag your photos by easily applying your saved GPS tracking logs to your photos with the program. Now, in the Mechanic 6: Use GPS data to automatically add city, state and country names to your metadata!
Adjust Capture Dates And Times
Take photos from multiple cameras and get them synchronized to the correct date and time. This is great for wedding photographers with second shooters.
Pick The Best Of The Bunch
View and compare images side by side, horizontally or vertically. Spot differences between images that are too subtle to see when viewing one at a time, or simply pick between two top choices.
Note: 30 days trial version.
