Product Announcement – publicspace.net of Luxembourg City, Luxembourg has released A Better Finder Attributes 6.0. The new version for the first time allows JPEG EXIF meta-data, such as exposure, camera & lens, as well as copyright information to be edited. It also features a new preview pane, which presents document & image previews along with all the meta-data attributes that the tool can manipulate.
A Better Finder Attributes has long been known to post-production and digital media producers for its ability to change Finder attributes, such as file creation and modification dates, hidden flags, labels and legacy creator and type codes. Its ability of visualizing and removing hidden files has also been much appreciated by practitioners in those domains.
Recent releases have brought it to a larger audience of digital photography amateurs and professionals by adding the ability to batch adjust the Exchangeable Image File (EXIF) time and date that JPEG pictures were shot to compensate for time zone errors or incorrectly set camera clocks.
Digital photographers also frequently leverage its ability to set the creation and modification dates of digital photo files to their actual shooting date to obtain proper chronological sorting in the Finder. Furthermore, professional photographers who use multiple cameras to cover the same event use A Better Finder Attributes to compensate for discrepancies in the internal clocks of their cameras.
A Better Finder Attributes can be used as a stand-alone application or straight from the Finder using either the contextual menu or a hot key. It can be integrated into existing workflows by creating droplets which automatically apply their stored settings. A Better Finder Attributes supports reading time stamps from a wide range of RAW camera formats (including Canon, Nikon, Olympus, DNG and many others) and can write EXIF timestamps in JPEG, CR2, NEF, ARF, RAF, SR2, CRW & CIFF image files.
System Requirements: Mac OS X 10.7 Lion or later
A Better Finder Attributes remains priced at $14.95 (USD) and can be downloaded from the Publicspace web site. Family, Business and Enterprise Licensing is available.
