Camera Bits has released Photo Mechanic 4.5.3, an update to the venerable and very effective photo management tool for professional photographers (our Ed Hidden swears by it). Photo Mechanic does one thing very well; it is all about efficiently and quickly moving new files onto your computer and then letting you view and edit those images as quickly as possible.
It doesn’t try to be an all-in-one one-stop shop for your photos but it gets your photos from your memory card to your computer exceptionally well. Use it to be amazed at its organizing capabilities!
Photo Mechanic 4.5.3 is now available for download for Windows and the Mac operating systems. The updated version fixes some usability issues with Mac OS 10.5 or Leopard and improves support for the new Canon EOS 40D camera.
It also adds support for browsing Olympus E-3 raw photos and fixes preview handling for Leica M8 DNG files, plus a few more enhancements.
