macOS New app Release – Retrobatch 1.0

ss1_export

Product AnnouncementFlying Meat Inc. of Mukilteo, Washington has released Retrobatch 1.0. the company’s new batch image processor for macOS. Retrobatch is dramatically different than any batch image processor ever seen. Each operation in Retrobatch has a node, and nodes are linked together on a canvas to create a workflow.

But why node based? “Every batch image processor I’ve come across is linear.” says Gus Mueller, founder of Flying Meat Inc. “You put images in one end, and out they come on the other side. But that’s so limiting! With Retrobatch it’s possible to take a folder of images and then operate on them multiple times within the same workflow. You can reference separate folders to combine images into a single output. Using nodes opens up unlimited possibilities.”

In addition to including the great standard features of any batch processor such as changing file type, cropping, and watermarking, Retrobatch raises the bar by offering machine learning and classification models. Use rules to remove or sort images in a workflow based on attributes such as color profile, file format, size, and orientation. Which images in a workflow contain a hotdog? Or not? Retrobatch also includes the ability to install new domain specific models for precise image classifications. With these features, Retrobatch gives users a powerful means of sorting images for further processing.

Feature Highlights:

  • Delete all metadata, or just remove GPS
  • Set the image DPI, title, author, description, and copyright
  • Edit specific metadata such as IPTC, EXIF, PNG, TIFF, and CIFF
  • Scriptable: run AppleScript, and shell scripts
  • Transform: crop, flip, rotate, scale to resize, trim edges to remove transparency
  • Add text or image watermarks with over 20 different blending modes available.
  • Use metadata tokens to quickly add metadata values as a watermark or as part of the file name
  • Use preloaded templates or create and save customized templates
  • Split multilayer and multipage images into individual images
  • Combine images to create multipage PDF or multilayer PSD
  • PNG compression and optimization
  • Change or remove color profiles including RGB, CMYK, grayscale, DP3, and many more
  • Color adjustments: saturation, brightness, contrast, exposure, gamma, vibrance, blurs, noise reduction
  • Color effects: add a border, drop shadow, matte, sharpening, and over 10 photo filter effects
  • Multiscale for web optimization and icon design
  • Generate screenshots
  • Open RAW file types and any image file supported by macOS
  • Read images from the clipboard, Photos library, folders, and subfolders
  • Write images to the clipboard, folders, or open in other apps
  • With its unique and user-friendly interface, Retrobatch easily handles both simple and complex image processing needs. Examples of time saving operations in Retrobatch include:
  • Photographers can edit and add metadata to their image files, then apply the metadata as a watermark
  • Users can remove GPS and other privacy sensitive and identifying information from images before uploading to social sites
  • Web developers can optimize images for retina display by creating one workflow branch to resize images to 50%, and another branch to write out PNG files with the @2x suffix added to the file name

There are two versions of Retrobatch- Regular and Pro. Pro has all the available nodes, including advanced features such as machine learning, changing bit depths and color profiles, processing with AppleScript and shell scripts, rules, and advanced metadata entry. The Regular version features the basics including cropping, resizing, watermarks, and changing image file formats. “Customers appreciate having a choice” says Mueller. “And with a free trial, they can decide which version best meets their needs with the option to upgrade in the future.”

Language Support: English

System Requirements:

  • MacOS 10.12 Sierra or later
  • Machine Learning and Classification Node requires MacOS 10.13 High Sierra or later

Retrobatch Pro 1.0 is only $49.99 (USD), and Retrobatch with slimmed down features is available for $29.99. Both are available to be directly purchased online from the Flying Meat Inc website. A free 14 day trial with all features included is available for download.

macOS New App Release – HoudahGeo 5.2

HoudahGeo-800x600@2x

Product Announcements – Houdah Software of Luxembourg City, Luxembourg  has released HoudahGeo 5.2, a major upgrade to the photo geotagging tool for Mac. HoudahGeo tags photos with GPS coordinates and location names. Geotags allow photo cataloging tools to organize and find photos by location.

Location information adds to the “story” of a photo. A photo pinned to a map has context. A series of tagged photos documents the path taken.

That’s why we took a GPS track logger on our trek to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa. Later on, this allowed us to geotag our photos using HoudahGeo.

Browsing the photos we took during this once-in-a-lifetime vacation, we can retrace our steps through the rainforest, into the heather zone, the mountain desert and finally to the summit. Seeing the photos and track log on a map helps recalling details, understanding the route we took and makes telling our story so much more visual and interactive.

For details on the equipment we used on the Kilimanjaro trek, check out the Houdah Software blog. There you will also find examples of what our photos look like in Google Earth and Google Photos.

HoudahGeo makes it easy to geotag digital photos with GPS location information. It writes future-proof EXIF, XMP, and IPTC tags to JPEG and RAW image files. HoudahGeo also supports XMP sidecar files.

HoudahGeo can load photos from Apple Photos, iPhoto, Aperture, and Adobe Lightroom catalogs. HoudahGeo can then tag original image files and add location information to photos in Apple Photos, iPhoto, and Aperture libraries. This gives the users of Apple’s photo cataloging tools access to the many photo geocoding options HoudahGeo has to offer:

  • Automatic geocoding using GPS track logs
  • Geocoding using reference photos taken using iPhone, a smartphone, or a GPS-enabled camera
  • Geocoding without a GPS. Use the built-in map to double-check, adjust, or assign locations to your photos

How is geotagging different from assigning locations in Apple Photos?

Geotagging writes location information to metadata tags within the original image files. This creates a permanent bond between a photo and the location where it was taken. HoudahGeo writes the same industry-standard EXIF and XMP as used by GPS-enabled cameras. Such geotags can be used by Apple Photos as well as other photo cataloging or publishing tools.

Location information added in Apple Photos exists only within the library database. The original images remain unaltered. Only exported versions of the photo can be set to include geotags.

HoudahGeo feature highlights:

  • Supports many methods of geocoding: GPS track logs, built-in maps, Google Earth, etc.
  • Writes GPS data, location names, title, description and keywords to EXIF, XMP and IPTC tags
  • Works with JPEG as well as a large number of RAW file formats. It also supports XMP sidecar files
  • Notifies Apple Photos, iPhoto, and Aperture of changes made to photo location information
  • Exports photos and track logs for viewing in Google Earth

New in HoudahGeo 5.2:

  • Support for Lightroom Classic CC. Import photos and metadata from Lightroom catalogs
  • HoudahGeo now offers autocompletion when editing location, city, province/state, country names
  • HoudahGeo now reads and writes the EXIF v2.31 OffsetTimeOriginal tag. This specifies the camera clock time zone
  • HoudahGeo now updates the XMP MetadataDate tag when writing EXIF/XMP tags
  • Greatly improved performance of bulk changes. E.g. setting the location name on all selected images

Notable additions in previous releases:

  • Apple Photos: HoudahGeo can now add locations to photos in the Apple Photos library. Requires Photos 2.0 on macOS Sierra
  • Places: Quickly assign photos to favorite places and apply coordinates and location names
  • Drag-and-drop geocoding: Drag images to the built-in map and drop them at the location where they were taken
  • Reverse geocoding: Look up location names in English, German, Spanish and French
  • Camera import: Download photos from your camera. Geotag photos before importing them into your photo library
  • Lightroom integration: HoudahGeo reads location metadata directly from the Lightroom catalog
  • Keywords editor: The new keywords editor makes it easy to assign keywords in bulk
  • Map search: No GPS? No problem! Search for landmarks, cities, as well as your favorite places
  • Publish KML to Dropbox: Upload photos and track logs to Dropbox. View in Google Earth and Google My Maps

System Requirements:

  • OS X Version 10.10 or later. Fully tested with macOS 10.13 High Sierra
  • Some features require macOS 10.12 Sierra
  • It is recommended that iCloud Photos users geotag their photos before uploading these to the cloud
  • Digital camera
  • Optional GPS track logger
  • Optional iPhone, smartphone, or GPS-enabled camera
  • 55 MB of disk space

HoudahGeo 5.2 is priced at $39 USD (+ tax) for a single-user license. A full-featured demo version is available. Licenses are available from the Houdah Software in-app and web stores.
