Lightroom? Photo Mechanic Works Better

Photo Mechanic Screen Shot

Ken Milburn writes, “Lightroom is a great program in many ways, especially to create web galleries and proof sheets. However, it is just too slow for adding IPTC data, renaming, sorting, ingesting, initial editing, etc.

“Part of the slowness is that it renders the raw data on each image and wasn’t designed for massive amounts of images like Photo Mechanic.

“To me, Lightroom has the advantage of ACR for image processing at the expense of being simple and fast. Photo Mechanic is the simple and fast program that I need for all the front-end of my digital image workflow.”
