Photo Mechanic 4.5 Update Offers Major New Features

Camera Bits Photo Mechanic 4.5

Photo Mechanic, a photo browser and workflow tool, has been updated with new features to answer the needs of photographers who work with large numbers of digital photos, such as photojournalists. For example, the Associated Press has standardized their workflow around Photo Mechanic, according to its maker Camera Bits.

Version 4.5 of the software now offers full support for Unicode IPTC and Structured Keywords. One example of Photo Mechanic’s flexibility is the ability to control how IPTC and/or XMP metadata is read and written for different formats such as JPEG or RAW. Now with Photo Mechanic 4.5, a user can choose to encode IPTC characters as either Unicode (UTF-8), or with a specific character encoding, allowing IPTC metadata to be entered in practically any language.

Another new feature in Photo Mechanic 4.5 is the ability to create highly customized web galleries using dynamic plug-in templates that are written in Ruby, a scripting language. More details of the update here.

PM 4.5 is a free update for users who purchased licenses for Photo Mechanic on or after March 1, 2006. New licenses cost US$150.
