MacPhun unveils Lost Photos for emailed attachment images

updated 01:54 am EDT, Thu May 1, 2014

Locates and recovers images sent in emails from multiple accounts

Photo and image-editing software maker MacPhun has announced its latest product, Lost Photos (free), a program originally developed by another software house that recovers and saves forgotten photos sent from others in emails as attachments. The program works across most popular IMAP-based email accounts such as iCloud, Gmail, Yahoo, AOL and Hotmail among others, and can download them for further organization or sharing.

Users simply enter an email address and password, and the program securely (using TLS cryptography) presents thumbnails of all the images saved as attachments for that account. MacPhun says the app "does not collect or store login information and does not communicate information from your email to any outside server. Additionally, Lost Photos transmits data to and from email servers using a secure (SSL) connection."

Filters can be set to ensure that only actual photos are viewed rather than any sort of attachment, and users can choose which photos will be saved to their Mac or shared directly from the program to Facebook, Twitter or email. The recovered and selected images can also be imported to iPhoto or Aperture directly from the program.

Other services supported by the initial MacPhun release (version 2.0) include Ymail, Rocketmail, AT&T, British Telecom Yahoo and Xtra New Zealand (but does not work with Verizon, SBC, Comcast, BigPond or POP email providers). The app itself is free, with users able to recover the first 100 photos from each email account. Users can opt to spend $2 as an in-app purchase to get up to 500 photos from each email account, or get unlimited photos from each email account for $3. The app is only available from the Mac App Store.
