Work how you want
Let’s work together. Photo Mechanic is designed to play nice with your other post-processing and creative tools so you’re in control.
Titles, keywords and copyrights
A picture is worth a thousand words, but only the embedded metadata counts. Get your images tagged faster with crucial information like credit and copyright to protect your business.
The Contact Sheet is the heart of your workflow. View thumbnails of your images, edit and organize them quickly and efficiently. The app puts you in control.
Fast raw file preview
Go from one image to the next with no processing delay. With thousands of images, the savings really add up.
Sometimes you need more than one keyword to describe (and find) an image. It helps you add keywords in many ways. Structured keyword lists allow you to quickly add related keywords.
Automatically add EXIF camera data to your images such as focal length, serial number or ISO to metadata fields such as titles or keywords.
Work faster when you copy, delete, tag, watermark, rename, resize, and add IPTC metadata to many photos at once.
Move, copy and rename
Add capture time to file names. Create dated folders on the fly. Copy files to multiple destinations at once. Photo Mechanic’s file management tools are incredibly powerful.
Save time writing long and complex text with Code Replacements. A few keystrokes can add complete sentences to your captions.
Geotag your photos by easily applying saved GPS track records to your photos with the program. Now in Mechanic 6: Use GPS data to automatically add city, state, and country names to your metadata!
Set capture dates and times
Take photos from multiple cameras and sync them to the correct date and time. This is great for wedding photographers with second shooters.
Choose the best of the group
View and compare images side by side, horizontally or vertically. Find differences between images that are too subtle to see one at a time, or just choose between the two best options.
