Camera Bits, Inc. is pleased to announce its latest version of Photo Mechanic™, a must-have digital camera image browser. Photo Mechanic is the answer for professional digital photographers looking for a fast and easy-to-use image browser for digital camera files. Photo Mechanic's innovative batch captioning, renaming, and speedy browsing have made it the choice of thousands of photojournalists and professional photographers worldwide.
Photo Mechanic is a standalone image browser that lets you view your digital photos with convenience and speed.
Photo Mechanic displays the "thumbnails" of photos on a camera disk or folder in a familiar "contact sheet" display window. You can quickly rotate, preview, copy, delete, tag, rename, and add caption / keyword (IPTC news record) information to photos both individually and in batches. Photo Mechanic helps you find the best photo amongst several similar shots with its preview display that lets you flip through a group of selected photos at high resolution. Photo Mechanic is ICC color managed for displaying thumbnails and previews, and can also detect and embed the Adobe RGB color space used by some professional cameras from Nikon and Canon.
Photo Mechanic's unique Image Variable technology unleashes the power of meta-data. Meta-data can be information saved with each photo such as image capture data or IPTC fields, or other information like the current date and time. Standard image capture data like aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and focal length can be accessed through "variables" and tucked-away in any IPTC field such as the caption. You can also use variables representing the current or capture time, date, or frame number, for example, for file renaming purposes. IPTC fields can be extracted using variables for use in renaming - even the filename variable can be placed in an IPTC field. One important variable called the sequence variable can be used for sequential naming or to serialize certain IPTC fields. In all, Photo Mechanic has more than 60 variables that enable customized workflows for captioning and renaming photos. The possibilities are endless.
