Photo Mechanic is open on my desktop every single day that I’m working. It’s my “go to” program that I use all the time. It’s fast and simple, and absolutely brilliant for culling, applying caption information, and downloading to two different locations at once. The ingesting is fast as it downloads multiple cards at once. I love that I can adjust the size, resolution, rename the image, place a watermark on the image, etc., all while emailing, moving, coping, and/or saving images. It’s crazy cool and a program that I can’t live without!
Photo Mechanic is an essential software for all photographers, period. I never edit, categorize or handle any images until they have gone through Photo Mechanic ingest process. From inserting IPTC information to organizing thousands of images, it does it all and it does them FAST. Let this be the first software you ever purchase in your photography career.
PhotoMechanic saves us hours every time we cull a wedding because we can select images at lightning speed. Now that we use it, we can't imagine our business without it. Our only regret is that we didn't switch over sooner!
Whether I am editing thousands of pictures from the World Series or dozens of iPhone pictures of my cats, I can’t do my job without Photo Mechanic. Ever since I stopped shooting chrome and switched to digital in 2003 I have been using Photo Mechanic every day on either my desktop or laptop Macs. For editing and captioning on deadline after a ballgame there is nothing better. There is a reason Photo Mechanic has been the industry standard for almost 20 years.
Photo Mechanic is my secret weapon. I adopted it ten years ago, early in my career. I heard about it from other pro photographer friends, who said I HAD to try it because it was so much faster than culling in other programs. If you ask anyone who has discovered it, they’ll absolutely rave about it. I think Photo Mechanic is a bit of a hidden jewel in the photography world. It’s unbelievably necessary to my workflow and I use it every day, so I tell my students about it too. It’s about making my life EASIER because honestly, I’d rather be out shooting.
