Hands On: PhotoSweeper 2.0 (OS X)

02/12, 7:10am

Remove duplicate photos quickly and easily

We're starting to think we were clever, turning our Aperture database into a gigantic mess -- because PhotoSweeper is the third recent app to come across our desk that is aimed at fixing it.

Hands On: A Better Finder Rename 9 (OS X)

01/01, 8:19am

Rename one, a thousand, or all your files in one go

It's been a long time since you came back from a vacation with just 24 or 36 photographs.

It's not really as if it will take you another vacation in order to sort out your photos, but it feels like it, and one problem is how they're all named. If cameras could automatically label a photo as 'Great Day at Santa Barbara With Aunt Mabel 001' you'd be set and A Better Finder Rename 9 would be out of business. For ABFR--– a utility that saves you time really shouldn't have such a long name -- will help with exactly this.
