Camera Bits Photo Mechanic is a photo "browser" designed with speed and ease of use in mind. You can call it a "photo editor" as well. Butunlike other photo editing programs that are designed to work with one photo at a time in order to edit its pixels, Photo Mechanic is designed to work with groups of photostogether in order to manage them. Professional photo editors who handle lots of photos daily, often under deadline, understand this distinction. Their job involves selectingphotos, not selecting pixels.
Photo Mechanic takes the work out of workflow
Fast Sort Photo Mechanic helps you quickly find your best shots. Custom sorting methods are availablefor your particular workflow. Multithreaded software works in the background to keep ahead of you, so images appear blazingly fast. You can view your originals full screen,compare similar shots side by side, delete the bad shots, tag photos while watching a slide show, and sort your keepers into multiple folders.
Fast Workflow Work with batches ofPhotos to:
Photo Mechanic’s powerful Ingest utility lets you copy images from several flash cards simultaneously, flatten the directory structure, apply IPTC metadata (City,State, Photographer’s name, Copyright, etc.), create a backup on a separate hard drive and rename your files all in one step! The ability to open a Contact Sheet during ingestallows you to start editing your files immediately, no more having to wait until the copy process is complete.
You can quickly rotate, preview, copy, delete, tag, watermark,rename, resize, and add IPTC metadata to photos both individually and in batches. Adjust capture dates and times, change a files resolution, or embed an ICC profile into yourJPEGs. Lock previews and pan them around together to compare details efficiently. Manually arrange photos in an arbitrary order, including across multiple folders.
PhotoMechanic makes it easy to add common "IPTC" (or metadata) information (like city, state, keywords, and caption) to groups of photos at once. Reduce time andimprove accuracy when captioning files by using the Code Replacement feature.
Create web galleries, print contact sheets, transfer photos to an FTP server or upload them toan online service such as PhotoShelter. Send photos to your clients via email, or archive your keepers by burning them to CDs or DVDs.
Configure it your way Put image metadata towork to customize your results. Do you want to include shutter speed, aperture and caption information with your prints or web page (and sometimes the date and city, but never thetime)? Rename files by photographer & state? Sort photos by city or date? Automatically convert the color profile for web photos so they look their best and stay small?Configure your own preferences or stay with the friendly defaults.
Rotate your JPEG files without loss of quality.

Photo Mechanic for Version 4.6.3, released February 08, 2010.
Live Ingest now processes RAW files, including RAW + JPEG pairs. You can have the ingest process wait for RAW + JPEG pairs when using the sequence variable to keep the RAW + JPEGpair synchronized for renaming etc, or just have it process JPEG and RAW files as soon as they are "stable" (i.e. file is done transmitting and can be moved).Because RAW files are large and have a proprietary format, they are not considered "stable" until they remain unchanged for a period of time (e.g. 30 seconds).You can set a time delay to wait before these "nonJPEG" files are considered stable. The faster your wireless or tethered connection, the shorter the delay youcan safely set, but a stalled connection lasting longer than the delay setting may result in image corruption.
Fixed a hanging bug in the Import GPS Coordinates command.
TheLive Slideshow now includes options to redisplay previously shown photos after some period of inactivity.
FTP and SFTP uploader templates now handle destination folder paths within such a way that attached files (e.g. XMP and WAV sidecar files) will end up in the same destination folder as the photo they belong to. Also, using variables like now returnthe path to where the original image resides.
Star Filter and Color Class Filter now respond correctly when multiple contact sheet tabs are open and one of the tabs is closed.
Launching multiple photos with Photoshop Elements 7 & 8 now work correctly.
Save As now has limits to the size of saved files in order to maintain stability. Images canbe saved at 8000 pixels on a side, maximum.
Added preference to control whether Structured Keywords will be written only to the lr:hierarchicalSubject field or if they will bewritten to both the hierarchicalSubject field and dc:subject field when updating XMP. All keywords, flat or structured will be always written to the IPTC keywords field sincethere is no other place to put them in IPTC.
The Amazon S3 uploader template now allows ” (hyphen) characters in the destination path.
Fixed a crashing bug when adding GPScoordinates to TIFF files or TIFFbased RAW files. This only happened under certain conditions and did not corrupt the files.
Fixed a crashing bug when removing Exif info but notXMP under certain circumstances.
Improved handling of low memory conditions.
Added the ability to utilize a proxy server when activating Photo Mechanic during registration. Ona Mac the proxy settings can generally be retrieved from the system preferences. On Windows the proxy settings must be put into a text file and saved in a location depending onyour version of Windows. Please consult the manual for full details.
