Pretty expensive for what it does. Lack of a fully functioning trial makes it even less appealing.

Chance are, if someone is interested in editing the meta info for photos, they probably already use program that can do this. Aperture, Adobe Creative Suite, Lightroom, etc. All of these support editing meta data. Heck, I bet even iPhoto or Google Picasa can do basic keywording.

You're quite right, there are lots of programs that do basic keywording.

METAmachine includes a four language thesaurus to automatically add translations. It has a larger, faster work area for keywording. It helps you collect keywords from similar images on the internet. It helps you build and save multiple keyword colelctions. And it imports a handful of third party keyword catalogs.

That's beyond basic and useful if you want or images to be found by search engines.

If you display or distribute your images on the web, you may want to prevent unauthorized reproduction. METAmachine is unique in that it includes a license generator so that you can brand images and include a No Use license or embed a very complete and legal license for usage.

The price is quite fair for what it does, but until March 30 we're offering a 30% discount.To get the 30% discount ($14 off) go to http://hsltd.us/products/purchase.html

Trial copy does not allow writing of metadata at all, so is therefore useless except to take a gui tour if you've nothing better to do.

The demo has been revised so that it's 100% functional. As a demo it writes metadata, but includes a note that it is a demo.
