Automating Photo Editing for Power-Users on Mac and PC since 2005
Posted OnDecember 9, 2015 by Shruthi S
Bits&Coffee is celebrating 10 years since it has released BatchPhoto in December 2005! With this occasion the company is releasing BatchPhoto v. 4.1.
BatchPhoto is a powerful all-in-one photo manipulation program for Mac OS X and Windows that lets photographers, web designers, business people, and families enhance photos quickly and efficiently. A user can simply select a group of photographs, and with a single operation annotate, transform, touch-up, apply special effects, convert to different image types, and rename every image in the group.
New features in version 4.1 include full support for Windows 10 and Mac OS X El Capitan, a greatly improved Date graphical filter with lots of options for formatting and drawing the date/time stamp, support for High DPI in Windows and improved support for Retina on Mac, the option to pause the photo processing, and more.
With BatchPhoto the user can easily annotate images in batches. The Date filter can stamp photos with the date and time of capture (as retrieved from the photo’s metadata), the Watermark filters can visually watermark images with text & logos, and the Comment filter can add paragraphs of text to dozens of pictures with ease. For more information, visithttp://www.batchphoto.com/features.html.
The software can automatically resize, crop, rotate and replace colors for thousands of photos in one session. For example the Auto Rotate filter knows the right orientation for all digital photos based on the information embedded in the photo’s metadata by the digital camera, and the Auto Crop filter can automatically crop an image to a predefined aspect ratio like 16:9.
With BatchPhoto it's simple to touch up groups of photos by automatically changing the contrast, brightness, sharpness, noise level, and color balance, among others. It also includes a full library of artistic effects, like sepia, black & white, custom borders, charcoal drawing or a simulated oil painting.
The program can read and write more than 170 image file formats, including: JPEG, TIFF, PDF, PNG, GIF, BMP, EPS, TGA, and PSD. It can also read RAW image formats from DSLR digital cameras like Canon, Sony, Nikon, Olympus, Fuji, and more.
