Ratings and Reviews
This is honestly a hidden gem in the app store. There are so few options are there that does what this app does. I have an insane amount of family photos that needed organizing. This saved me so much time. It’s too bad updates are not very fequent. I’d love to see this continued to be improved.
uses up all the memory
seemed promising, i have 32 gb RAMon my iMac .the only app i have seen that drains all of it and causes the imac to freeze.
good concept but poor interface…

One of the few file management apps available on a Mac
I had been scouring the internet for a product that would do just what this one does. I must admit that I was nervous because 16 years of family memories are at stake. Like many users my file management discipline is sadly lacking and my family photographs are spread over 6 disk drives and there are many duplicates. I tried to map out a plan. First I tested this application. I gathered approximately 20GB photos and put them in a single folder. Some of the photos were already in folders of their own. I ran the application and it created a set of directories by year/month/date. I compared the target folder size to the source folder size. It was close but not exact.
When I examined the folders I could see more duplicates than the application found which was troubling. I decided to use another application to find duplicates and it did a vey good job. My workflow was first find duplicates as I added more and more pictures and then run Beautiful Backup 2 (BB2). My final step would be to migrate the data to my Synology NAS.
When I opened the user interface for the first time I was impressed. This looked ready for prime time. I ran more tests and finally I decided that it should be close enough. Besides I have copies of the photographs of course. I have around 70GB of photographs spread over 16 years (about 22,000 files). I am now at the stage that I feel comfortable proceeding. It appears to me that the main functionality is there (I’ll know soon) but there are still some areas that ned work. For example, duplicates are not always the exact same size. BB2 does not catch these. Other duplicate applications do. So it’s not perfect however if it automates the directory structure for me, that’s a huge start and worth the price of admission.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
