Daniella Zalcman

Daniella Zalcman

A kind older colleague introduced me to Photo Mechanic back when I was a teenager trying to break in to the world of news photography in New York — he told me that if I could streamline my workflow and file my assignments quickly, I'd always be in demand as a breaking news photojournalist. My workflow has evolved dramatically in the 15 years since, and I no longer photograph breaking news, but Photo Mechanic has remained an irreplaceable part of my process.

She is a multiple grantee of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, a fellow with the International Women's Media Foundation, a National Geographic Society grantee, and the founder of Women Photograph, a non-profit working to elevate the voices of women and non-binary visual journalists.

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.

Mark Condon

As editor of a popular photography website that receives hundreds of submissions from professional photographers from around the world, I get a unique insight to the equipment and software in current use in the industry. One name that keeps popping up is Photo Mechanic, usually accompanied by the words 'indispensable' or 'game-changing'. I neglected to use Photo Mechanic for my wedding photography work for too long, thinking that a Lightroom Smart Preview workflow was adequately fast... but now I'm a convert too. Speed-wise, it's just night and day.

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 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!
