Truly Excellent and User Friendly

Mad Monk 11

This is really a five-star app compared to the other apps I have seen. The only reason I gave it four starts is because there are some little things that should continue to be worked on. For instance, there is a way to select all or delect all in a batch, but you have to look for it a bit. A button like that should be somewhere around the batch. Also, there is no way to remove a photograph from a batch or add a photograph to a batch. At least that I have found yet. Currently, you have to select a photo in a batch and then click remove. You should also be able to just right click and select remove. So in other words, these features are there. Saying that there is no way to add or remove isn’t really accurate. You can do everything. But there could be some redundant buttons and menu items in order to make every step completely obvious to every type of user. I’ll put it like that.

So call me crazy, but I like the app so much I only gave it four stars in order to motivate the developer to continue improving it through redundant features to increase the already high amount of user friendliness.

All that said, this is an amazing value.

Freezes often, nags to provide rating


After a few batches, the app will freeze on both my iMac and my MacBook Pro. The first few batches work OK, but after 3 or 4 the app freezes while initiating Exif changes. The app is an insufferable nag, constantly requesting you to rate it.

What’s more important is that it’s missing some IPTC fields. There is no IPTC creation date field. The Apple Photos app uses the IPTC creation date for sorting purposes. Batch changing in Photos only adjusts +/- from the first selected photo’s date instead of actually putting your desired date into the IPTC data. If you have a bunch of photos with different IPTC creation dates, the result is a mess of dates. This feature would be a useful addition to the app.

Some annoyances and limitations


Annoying: (as others have reported) The modal window in the beginning that you can’t move. When you are initially loading your images, you have to wait for this window to go away. Also, there is no indicator of the import process, so it looks like the app is frozen for a minute while it is importing. Limitiation: It doesn’t seem to allow batch time changes. You can shift the date this way (like if you forgot to change the date on your camera, etc.). But you can’t do incremental/decremental time changes… odd.
