PhotoToolCM is a contextual menu plugin for Mac OS X. It helps you to manage/organize JPEG photo image created by digital cameras. Originally, I was going to add these features and functions to my QuickImageCM. However, I realized that due to some technical reasons, adding these features would increase the object size of QuickImageCM dramatically. So I decided to make it a separate CM plugin. This CM plugin can be a nice companion of the QuickImageCM and it has supplemental features you don't find in my QuickImageCM

Below is the summary of what this CM plugin can do. All of these features
What's New
Version 2.0:

  • Changed the order and layout of contextual menu display slightly for easier operation.

I was excited because this was exactly what I was looking for to fix Finder's shortcomming regarding EXIF info, unfortunately, as stated below, doesn't seem to work on my Intel MBP.

***** Five starts because it absolutely does what it says. But: Why does it not show the compression value of a JPG?

I love this little utility :)
It's free, efficient, and have some nice features...
And work great on leopard! ;)
I only have one regret: the batch frame is a wonderful idea, but there is only "weird" frames, no simple ones! And my experience show me that simpler is better when it comes to frames...
any way we can add our own frames?
thanks

When I read the comment below about it not being supported in leopard I was really depressed. However, never one to believe what someone says (I'm still not convinced that mum is telling the truth about 'dad') I installed it anyways. At first my depression was deepened by its absence in the CM. However, if you look down the bottom, to 'more', you see it there in all its glory.

To sad that this app isn't updated anymore. Its one of the best context menue apps ever.

For those who need a batch renamer for exif date to filename see this little applescript app (works on Intels too): http://blog.tice.de/beitrag.php?file=2007_04_16_1948&sprache=englisch

I just found it via their other plugin "QuickImage". Those two together are so cool and useful I would be gladly willing to pay for them. Thanks
again: WHOA - COOL!

Below is the summary of what this CM plugin can do. All of these features can be used right from the Finder without launching any applications.
  • Displays Exif information (plus general JPEG file information) of a JPEG file quickly on the contextual menu.
  • Copy Exif information of selected file(s) to the clipboard so that you can paste to other text documents.
  • Batch rename selected file(s) using Exif date (the date pictures were taken).
  • Add frame to the selected file(s) interactively (one by one) or all at once.
  • Change file dates (date created and date last modified) of selected file(s) to Exif date (the date pictures were taken).
  • Transform (rotate/flp images) JPEG image witout decompress and compress the actual image data. (aka. lossless transform)
  • Edit comment of selected JPEG files interactively, or all at once.
  • Edit Exif date (date and time of the picture taken) of selected JPEG files using absolute or relative date and time interactively, or all at once.
  • Clean up not important meta data and resource fork of selected JPEG files to make their file size smaller.
  • Batch resize selected JPEG files using scale ratio or width or height as a base.
