PhotoSweeper im Test: Doppelte Fotos aufspüren leicht gemacht - langwierige manuelle Suche adé

Speicherplatz ist ein rares Gut. Heutzutage vielleicht nicht mehr unbedingt auf der heimischen Festplatte – selbst mobile Macs sind inzwischen auch mit viel Speicher bezahlbar geworden –, doch spätestens aber beim Cloud-Speicher Ihrer Wahl. Speziell bei iCloud, in der Fotos seine Daten ablegt, kann der Platz schnell ausgehen. Da kann es nicht nur der Ordnungsliebe wegen helfen, doppelte Fotos in der eigenen Sammlung aufzuspüren und zu eliminieren. PhotoSweeper hilft dabei und nimmt Ihnen die manuelle Suche ab...

9TO5Mac: How-To: Safely shrink your Mac’s giant photo library, deleting duplicate images to save space

I’ve focused a lot over the last few months on helping readers to speed up and optimize Apple’s Macs — everything from adding RAM to recovering hard drive space and upgrading old hard drives to faster SSDs. Today’s How-To is focused on something very specific but with a lot of optimization potential: trimming down your Mac’s photo library. Particularly after installing OS X 10.10.3 with Apple’s new Photos app, you might be surprised to learn that you’ve lost a lot of hard drive space, and that there are suddenly tons of duplicate photos on your Mac...

iLounge: Overmacs Reformator 1.2

While Apple’s Photos app is a handy way to organize your photos, its options for converting and updating metadata are limited at best, so in these cases you’re better off simply exporting your photos and passing them through a third-party app more specifically geared toward the task...

iLounge: Overmacs PhotoSweeper 2.1

Now that Apple has released its Photos app for OS X, it’s probably a good time to deal with cleaning up your library before migrating it over and moving it to iCloud Photo Library — especially since you’ll need to pay Apple for space to upload your photos to iCloud, and if you have duplicates in your library, those definitely will count...

blogtogo.de: PhotoSweeper für OS X spürt Duplikate in Apples neuer Fotos.app auf

Ich habe hier schon so ei­nige Apps für den Mac vor­ge­stellt, mit denen man dop­pelte Bilder auf seiner Platte auf­spüren und lö­schen kann. Die meisten der Apps durch­su­chen dabei nicht nur Bilder auf eurer Fest­platte, son­dern können auch in­ner­halb eurer iPhoto-Bibliothek nach Du­pli­katen su­chen. Pro­blem dabei: iPhoto ist tot und die neue Foto.app von OS X wird bis­lang nicht un­ter­stützt. Nun haben die Ent­wickler von Pho­toS­weeper, wel­ches erst vor we­nigen Wo­chen in einer neuen Ver­sion 2 ver­öf­fent­licht wurde, auf­ge­rüstet und als erster Ent­wickler die Un­ter­stüt­zung der neuen Foto.app implementiert...

MacDaily.co: PhotoSweeper: Find Duplicate and Similar Photos

Technology affords us such amazing luxuries and fun that we could only dream about just 15 or 20 years ago. One of the areas that this is evident is within the photography realm where the days of being limited to 24 or 36 exposures are long forgotten by my generation, and not even known by the current generation of would-be photographers. As with all good things however, there is often a balancing price to be paid and that is very true when it comes to the number of photos we must now manage...

Apple-User.pl: Recenzja – PhotoSweeper 2

36 zdjęć i ani jednego więcej – tak kiedyś wyglądała rzeczywistość w fotografii analogowej na jednej rolce filmu. Wszystko zmieniło się za sprawą cyfryzacji, a magiczne liczby 24 i 36 zaczęły rosnąć wraz z pojemnościami kart pamięci, znajdującymi się w aparatach. Przejście w erę cyfrową odbiło się również na liczbie zrobionych zdjęć, których możemy pstryknąć tysiące...

MacGeneration: PhotoSweeper fait le ménage dans iPhoto, Aperture et Lightroom

La sortie de Photos au printemps est l’occasion de passer un coup de balai dans sa bibliothèque iPhoto ou Aperture afin de migrer sur une bonne base. Le logiciel PhotoSweeper, qui a récemment reçu une grosse mise à jour, est spécialisé dans cette opération. L’utilitaire, qui prend aussi en charge les bibliothèques Lightroom, dispose de nombreuses options pour repérer les doublons et les supprimer. Il sait détecter les doublons en fonction de leur taille, ratio, format, intervalle de prise de vue, contenu, histogramme ou bien encore de leur bitmap. La prise en compte de ces différents paramètres se règle dans les options du moteur de recherche...

The Next Web: PhotoSweeper upgrade lets you take control of your photo collection

Whether you’re a photo pro, advanced enthusiast or rank amateur, getting the perfect shot is critical. The problem is that you often generate many more imperfect and extremely similar shots that wind out being disposable. Having fewer and better shots not only saves hard drive (and even cloud) space but actually promotes showcasing and sharing the best photos. But it can be a Herculean task to find and rid large photo collections of literally thousands of duplicates and similar shots. That’s where Overmacs’ PhotoSweeper for Mac’s new, improved update comes in...

iLounge: Overmacs PhotoSweeper 2.0

For some of us, keeping our photos in order can be a confusing mess, and the longer you’ve been into digital photography, the more problematic this is likely to be for all but the most hardcore archivists. While Apple’s iCloud Photo Library promises to fix this going forward, chances are that between Aperture/iPhoto, Finder, and your iOS Camera Roll, some duplicate photos may have crept in somewhere along the way. Sadly, most photo management tools don’t really do a very good job of even preventing you from importing duplicates in the first place, much less finding them after the fact...

Let’s Talk TECH: Overmacs Launches PhotoSweeper 2 for Mac — Refined UI, Greater Speed and New Features

Version 2 of PhotoSweeper debuted on the Mac App Store yesterday. This duplicate photo finder from Overmacs garnered high praise in our prior write-up.

Although the layout remains mostly unchanged, the UI received some attention adding more refinement and bringing it closer to Yosemite design aesthetics...

Если вы связаны с фотографией, обработкой изображений или просто снимаете много домашних фото — проблема нехватки дискового пространства и появления дубликатов снимков должна быть знакома вам не понаслышке. В суматохе или от излишней осторожности, мы копируем фото по нескольку раз и они просто занимают место на диске, да еще и путают нас. Вручную разбирать завалы дубликатов не имеет смысла, лучше поручить эту задачу такой утилите, как PhotoSweeper...

TheAppNews: Reformator – Batch Photo Editor for Mac

Reformator is a batch image convertor from the Overmacs Team. I previously reviewed another app developed by them called PhotoSweeper, which I was highly impressed with. In the past couple of months I’ve needed a batch image convertor for several photo projects I have been working on, and I’ve been trying several out. The opportunity to review Reformator came at the perfect time. I needed something good and something fast to convert a bunch of images with different variations, so is Reformator up to the task?...

Let’s Talk TECH: Reformator for Mac: Efficient Batch Image Processing

One way of easing the pain is to batch process images where possible, and most professional library apps offer this service. If your workflow is relatively simplistic, though, the £99 that Adobe asks for Lightroom is quite steep. This is where an app named Reformator slots in — it claims to provide all the mainstream batch processing options you’re ever likely to need, at the much more palatable price of £5.49/$7.99. Very affordable, then, but can it stand shoulder-to-shoulder with more expensive offerings? I gave it a test drive to find out...

Let’s Talk TECH: Photosweeper: Good Clean Duplicate-Finding Fun For Mac

As Apple finally calls time on the long-ignored Aperture, the options for organisation are narrowing for budding photographers using OS X. Soon, Yosemite will bring along an all-in-one Photos app, but the likelihood is that it will be even bulkier than the already hefty iPhoto. That’s where a third-party app such as Photosweeper (£6.99/$9.99) comes in. Although it visually resembles the behemoths of image sorting, its functional scope is actually quite restricted — this is purely an environment for comparing images and removing duplicates. But does the simplicity equate to an overly limited workflow? I went hands on to find out...

Non si tratta, però, di un programma rivolto a coloro che intendono giocare con le proprie foto, applicando effetti, cornici e altri cambiamenti estetici. Infatti, sebbene Reformator disponga di qualche opzione per il ritocco delle foto, principalmente è un applicativo che permette di convertire le immagini nelle estensioni più comuni, rinominando automaticamente interi gruppi di foto e consentendo di applicare watermark agli scatti o aggiungere o sottratte meta dati...

macsources.com: Reformator for Mac

Looking back at my photo library, I have thousands of images that are untouched. They have names like IMG0092 and some are too dark to recognize because of the low available light that was used when the photo was taken. Such issues can be corrected, but can also take a lot of time if it has to be done shot by shot. Reformator for Mac by Overmacs is the answer to this problem. Reformator helps photographers to convert photos, edit file names and add watermarks as a batch process. There are no other apps like this on the market. There are some apps that will allow to complete batch processes, but not to the degree that Reformator for Mac does...
