Review: Phoshare for Mac allows iPhoto library managing/syncing to a photo tree

Create linked photo trees and manage photos contained within iPhoto, using Phoshare for Mac.

Phoshare for Mac allows users to synchronize and manage photos contained within iPhoto and other file-system management applications, making it a suitable freeware option for easy photo management. If you don't already have ExifTool installed, the program will prompt you to install this free software used for working with image metadata.

Phoshare for Mac downloads really quickly and opens to a straightforward but rather plain interface with no graphics. The program's menu bar options are elementary and the Help file is limited. The main menu includes three buttons used for exporting -- Library, Files, and Metadata. Clicking on Library allows you to specify the location of photos, and gives the option to perform a dry run without modifying any files. You may also choose to export in the form of a photo tree, which is a nice touch. Clicking on Files gives you expanded options such as setting the export destination, overwriting changed pictures, deleting obsolete pictures, and using file links. Additionally, by clicking on Metadata, users may choose to export the linked meta and GPS data of their photos. During testing, the application performed as intended and no problems were encountered.

Phoshare for Mac's easy-to-use interface and output options will be useful to users wanting to manage and synchronize their photos with another application while minimizing disk space usage.
