TechSono has released PhotoControlMac for OS X, a utility for organizing your image and multimedia collection.
PhotoControlMac uses the concept of a light table, a table used by photographers to easily view a large number of slides at the same time, Mike Trivisonno of TechSono told MacCentral. The top of the light table is made of frosted glass that is illuminated from below with a light source.
“With PhotoControlMac you simply select a folder and a small thumbnail of each file is placed on your LightTable,” he said. “Naturally, you can control the size of the thumbnails from 32×32 pixels all the way up to 1024×1024 pixels. You can have as many LightTable windows open as you like. Each one can be configured differently.”
PhotoControlMac uses drag & drop, supports a variety of file types, offers the ability to resize LightTables in 128 pixel increments, has a “CacheAll feature,” and the capability to add captions. It has a random selection feature that let’s you remove thumbnails and delete files from your hard drive. PhotoControlMac can also import files from selected folder and any nested folders.
PhotoControlMac can be downloaded from the
TechSono Web site. The cost is US$40.
