Creates library backups
Blue Room has launched a new edition of ImageArchiver, also its first aimed at Adobe's Lightroom photo workflow software. While Lightroom includes its own backup functions, ImageArchiver for Lightroom 1.0 operates as a plugin and generates disk images or compressed file archives. Mac and Windows versions for Lightroom 2.x are available.
Both copies support the creation of ZIP, GZIP, BZIP2 and TAR files, but only the Mac program supports disk images. Mac users must be running Mac OS X 10.4, while Windows users must have at least Windows XP SP2. The software can be tried free for 15 days, and costs $10 to unlock.
