Editors' review

When returning from vacation, users often have large numbers of unorganized photos. JetPhoto Studio for Mac helps those users classify digital photos for display. The program works well but lacks more advanced functions.

Available as a basic, non-commercial, free version, JetPhoto Studio for Mac only requires a payment of $25 for professional and commercial users. Installation took place without any problems and finished quickly. Despite the lack of user instructions, the program's interface was easy to use, especially for those who have worked with other photo managers. When creating new album directories, the program prompts users to drag photos into its main window. This is easily accomplished and the individual photos load quickly. Batches can also be uploaded. Each photo brings up a separate menu showing the date it was taken. If available, additional options exist for geotagging and GPS location of the photo spot. Working with photo metadata is also a welcome feature. Unfortunately, only the most basic editing functions, such as cropping and rotation, are possible in the application. More advanced features for altering photos would have been welcome.

While functional as a photo management program, JetPhoto Studio for Mac, with the exception of its geotagging and metadata features, lacks the advanced editing tools of other, more complete programs.

    "Just Brilliant"

    December 11, 2011   |   By scart69

    Version: JetPhoto Studio 5.2

    Pros

    Geo tagging seems excellent & accurate, quality of edits seems high as does ease of use

    Cons

    Only con I can really see is that slideshows are not as configurable as could be but that's a small "con"

    Summary

    Excellent free software, not "disabled" after a few photos & an overall great release.

    "Exactly what I needed, and free!"

    October 12, 2008   |   By timmy678778

    Version: JetPhoto Studio 3.1

    Pros

    Very easy to add a watermark image to an image. Does a lot of other stuff that I didn't even know I needed but use all the time now.

    Cons

    It doesn't have advanced image manipulation features, but that's not what I expected or was looking for.

    Summary

    Given the low number of downloads and no comments, I thought this would be really poor software, but it's the exact opposite. It's a quality application.

    "Not For Me"

    September 25, 2008   |   By MsMerryMac

    Version: JetPhoto Studio 3.1

    Pros

    Not too hard to get used to, but too many "bells & whistles" for me.

    Cons

    It was too precise for me. I wanted a program with fewer options.

    Summary

    I just wanted a program to be able to dump all my photos into and have them all adjusted at once. I found PictureScaler and used that program instead.

    "Good product, especially for older hardware."

    July 08, 2006   |   By MarkRAus

    Version: JetPhoto 2.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    After using Picasa on an older 1.3 ghz Athlon, I was disappointed by iPhoto 4's sluggish performance on my G4 466 Digital Audio tower w/ 1 GB RAM (yes, I realize my Mac is pretty slow by today's standards). I though I might find something faster iPhoto for browsing my growing collection of approximately 4000 digital images. So far, JetPhoto feels a little snappier. Sure, it's not as feature rich as iPhoto or Picasa (although there are probably some pretty cool things that can be done with the complimentary server app) but for basic thumbnail browsing on older hardware, it seems pretty good so far. I can't vouch for stability yet. It's going on the Pismo next...that should be an even better test of speed on older hardware.

    This is a great product and I can't believe it is free. Though I haven't used it's full potential there are so many thing I can think about using on my network like streaming and all. Fantastic and a must in my software collection.

    "Awesome"

    October 26, 2005   |   By julia2

    Version: JetPhoto 2.1.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    This is one of the slickest, most professional pieces of Mac software I've ever used, bar none. Its responsiveness is superb, especially in view of iPhoto's sluggishness. Its interface is beautiful and generally elegant. The calendar thingie is way cool; you click on a date and all photos taken on that date are highlighted. Brilliant. It would be much more useful, though, if you could select more than one date or a range of dates at a time. The slideshows have transitions, and there's a Flash generator and a mobile phone formatter that I haven't messed with yet.

    The documentation is extensive and complete, despite its having been obviously written by folks whose first language is not English. Server setup is a bit scary and complex at first; I had to find and install a new PHP suite to get "GD" enabled, whatever that is, but once it's set up it's solid. It's not real friendly to locally-hosted sites since all file transfers to the server must be done via FTP; there is no provision for simply saving the files locally and bypassing FTP altogether, which would be nice. It also defaults, for its "local server" settings, to the user website directory ~/Sites/ which is annoying for someone who uses the main site /Library/Web Server/Documents. There's a "favorites" menu though, so it's no big deal.

    My main gripe is the difficulty of user-customization of the displayed web pages - one has to dig into php scripts. While the provided templates are beautiful and very professional-looking, doing something simple like changing what metadata is displayed for each image is a project unto itself. The program needs a GUI like those in Photosite Timesaviour or Image2Web, where you just click checkboxes and so forth.

    All in all an astoundingly high-quality suite of programs. I haven't found any limitations in the free demo, and the purchase price of $38 is extremely reasonable.
