DropBox 1.0 released
Iocr has announced its newest freeware, DropBox, offering users photo uploading capabilities. Users can drag-and-drop images into the application and they will automatically be uploaded to the locr server, where they can be shared worldwide. Geotagged photographs maintain all their meta data and are displayed on digital maps with information about the surrounding area. Multiple images can be uploaded simultaneously, maintaining information such as keywords, descriptions, image sizes, passwords and privacy settings.
DropBox is compatible with a variety of image formats including TIFF, RAW, PSD, PNG, and JPEG. It automatically converts all images into JPEGs and once the images are posted, the application displays the URL. Users can then double-click on the URLs, opening the locr website and displaying the selected photograph. An image's URL is also stored in the original file's Finder and Spotlight comment for later reference. DropBox requires Mac OS X 10.4 and is available for free from the locr website.
