  • PhotoReviewer 2.1 ($15) is a photo management tool for Mac OS X that can quickly flip though photos, choosing which ones are "keepers" and which aren't, sorting them into different folders, and renaming them.

Version 2.1 is largely a maintenance release, fixing bugs and improving the user interface. It requires Mac OS X 10.4. [Download - 1.1MB]
