Billing it as “the most important release in the history of the product,” Swedish developer Rune Lindman has offered
QPict v6 for Mac OS X. It’s a major new upgrade to the media asset manager intended to help users organize multimedia files like images, movies, fonts and sounds.
Used by newspaper publishers, photographers, Web designers and others, QPict provides users with the ability to view, organize, search and batch-process media files. Its support of standards includes ANPA, EXIF and XML.
The new release of QPict adds support for RAW image file from “almost every camera brand and model,” including Nikon, Canon, Kodak, Casio, Minolta, Fuji, Olympus, Pentax and others. This release also adds native support of PostScript files. And a new Kiosk Mode provides QPict users with the ability to put work on display in public venues without worrying about users disturbing the contents of the computer.
ColorSync ICC profiles are now supported, Move To and Copy To commands have been added, an Open With command is new, media support has been improved, performance is better, there’s a new index database format and much more.
Details on everything that has changed are available from the Web site.
QPict v6 can be downloaded from the Web site as a 30-day trial version. A single-user license costs US$35; for a limited time existing QPict users can update for $14. Separate downloads are available for Mac OS X v10.1.5 or later and Mac OS 9 and later.
