This is a short review of the tool “PhotoBatch” by Metakine. It’s a tiny mac application that can be used for very rudimentary batch processing on pictures, like resizing, contrast/saturation adjustments, and file renaming. It also crops, rotates and resizes pictures, as well as file conversions.

So from the technical fact sheet it looks nifty and useful, especially if you’re not the guy who does all that by using ImageMagick from the command line. The user interface is clean and understandable.

If that’s all you need: give it a try. It has a 100 picture trial phase. After that you’ll need to register and pay ~12€ for it.

My personal decision: it’s not what I need. I do all these processes via Adobe Lightroom. I was hoping to add value on top of that, like custom watermarking that’s a pain to configure with Lightroom.
