iPhotoSync beta 15 is out!

By

August 11th, 2010

Compared to beta 10, this release of iPhotoSync is much better about finding and ignoring duplicates. Specifically, it won’t retrieve a photo from the other computer if it has (as its original or modified photo) the other computer’s original or modified version of that photo. Also, for JPEGs it only considers the image data in determining duplicates; it skips the “metadata” including the “ColorSync profile” that iPhoto likes to embed when it imports.

It also has an “Ignore” feature so you can ignore some of the other computer’s photos instead of having to import them and then delete them.

To get the latest release you can pick “Check for Updates” from the iPhotoSync menu (if you’ve already installed it) or download it from here: http://www.haystacksoftware.com/iphotosync/iPhotoSync.zip.

iPhotoSync beta 10 is out!

By

August 4th, 2010

iPhotoSync beta 10 is finally available!

Feature Additions

  • Password protection: Set a password in the Preferences and other computers will have to type it in to gain access to your photos.
  • For JPEG photos, compare image data only to detect duplicates. This means photos that look exactly the same but have slightly different metadata (such as embedded ColorSync profiles that iPhoto adds) will be treated as the same photo by iPhotoSync.

Fixed Bugs

  • Much less memory usage (still some work to do here).
  • Rewrote a significant portion of the code.

Get It

Pick “Check for Updates” from the iPhotoSync menu to update to the new version, or download it from here.

If you have feedback or questions, please email me at support@haystacksoftware.com. I would love to hear from you!
