macOS -A Better Finder Attributes 6.0

screenshot-1

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.

macOS KeyCue 8.2

keycue-popcharintegration

Product Announcement – Ergonis Software of Perg, Austria has released KeyCue 8.2, a new version of the company’s highly acclaimed keyboard shortcut cheat sheet. KeyCue 8 introduced a new way to define a wide variety of triggers, which can be used to perform different actions, taking KeyCue to a whole new level. Based on this technique, KeyCue 8.2 now closely integrates with PopChar X, the company’s award-winning tool for finding and inserting special characters and exploring fonts. The integration allows PopChar users to quickly show recently used and favorite characters from PopChar in KeyCue’s head-up display and insert them with a click.

The new version also contains performance improvements; it launches faster and significantly reduces the space occupied by KeyCue’s internal cache. Furthermore, KeyCue 8.2 includes some functional improvements and maintenance fixes to user-reported issues. Visit Ergonis Software’s website to learn more about the changes in this release and to download and try the new version.

The productivity paradox of keyboard shortcuts is that shortcuts were designed to increase productivity. However, productivity actually decreases when applications provide large numbers of shortcuts, in particular when the shortcuts are defined inconsistently across applications. KeyCue’s elegantly simple solution is to display an instant overview of currently available keyboard shortcuts – application-specific menu shortcuts as well as system-wide hotkeys and user-defined shortcut descriptions. Over time, KeyCue users will automatically remember frequently used shortcuts and start working more efficiently.

KeyCue has already received many awards, including a 4.5-Mice award from MacWorld magazine.

System Requirements:

  • KeyCue 8.2 requires Mac OS X 10.6 or newer and is fully compatible with OS X El Capitan (10.11)
  • Integration of KeyCue and PopChar X requires KeyCue 8.2 or newer and PopChar 7.5 or newer

The upgrade to KeyCue 8.2 is free for anyone who owns a license for KeyCue 8 or purchased a license for KeyCue 7 on or after March 1st 2015. Upgrade paths are available for owners of older licenses. KeyCue is available from the Ergonis web site for 19.99 Euros.

Product Announcement – Reezaa  of Xi’an, China has released PDF Merger Mac 1.0, their simple to use and efficient free Mac OS X application that allows users to merge multiple files into a single document, all via a simple drag-and-drop interface. Users can easily adjust the sequence of the source files, and with a single click of a button, create a single PDF document that retains all the formatting, page sizes, and page orientation of the original files.

Adobe PDF files are the document format of choice in today’s world, as it allows for easy electronic sharing of important information with clients, co-workers, and end users. Many times, multiple documents may need to be shared with other users, requiring the sending of numerous files to one recipient. PDF Merger Mac makes it simple to merge multiple PDF files, creating a single document that is much simpler to send, receive, and digest.

Why PDF Merger Mac?

  • Add or remove files with a single click
  • Merge over 1,000 PDF Files in just a few seconds
  • Final document retains the original files’ page size, orientation, and formatting
  • Users can easily change the PDF file merging order
  • Clear the entire file list, and start over with one click
  • Help, via an easy-to-follow tutorial, is always just click away
  • The app is 100% FREE

Merging PDF files with the app is an easy three-step process. First, click the convenient “Add” button to select the PDF files to be merged via the Mac OS X Finder, (or just drag-and-drop the files into the PDF Merger Mac app window). Second, click the “Combine PDFs to” button, which then allows the selection of the drive location and filename of the merged PDF document. The third and final step consists of simply clicking the “Start Now” button to start the merging process. The progress of the process can be readily monitored via the app’s progress bar.

Occasionally, before clicking the “Start Now” button, a user will realize they added the documents to the merge list in the wrong order. PDF Merger Mac makes it simple to reorder the source files in order to create the correct sequence of files in the final document. Users merely click a filename, and then click the “Move Up,” or “Move Down” buttons to adjust a file’s position in the list. Or, simply click on a file, and while holding down on the mouse button, drag it to its fresh position in the list.
