ImageIngester Pro "ingests" images -- transfers them from your camera or card to your computer -- the right way: Two copies are made, typically to different drives; Adobe DNG Converter is optionally run on raw files so the primary copy is a DNG; files are given unique names; modifcation dates (even for DNGs) are reset to the date on the card; JPEGs are verified by reading and decompressing them; and the primary images are kept in a tree organized by date, year/date, or year/month/date (your choice).

ImageIngesterPro and ImageIngester are now a single app called
What's New
Version 3.5.05:
  • A minor change for Version 3.5.05 for Mac OS X: Failure to set the access and modification times for an ingested file to what was on the source file is no longer considered an error, as this does not affect EXIF data or the image itself. Also, the beta-warning popup on launch is gone.
Requirements
Intel/PPC, Mac OS X 10.4 or later

This the reference for serious photographers.
Helps to build a solid workflow, independant from the software you will use for editing, etc..

This is by far the best image importer for the Mac. I wonder why it isn't rated here before. Give it a try if you want to keep a folder/name-structure with your photos aside from iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom etc. Sure, you have to do a little work before you can start ( a lot of options and preferences ) but it's worth the work.

I don't need all the PRO functions. Is there a cheaper version (standard or so) available for less money (30 bucks or so) ?

No PTP means it doesn't work with the iPhone. To bad.

This application does not support PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol.) My Canon PowerShot SD800-IS will not show up as a mass storage device and can't be configured to do so.

The manual suggests that when dealing with cameras like this, the user get a card reader and remove the card from the camera each time they wish to download the images.

The inconvenience factor this presents is a sufficient barrier for me. Unless PTP is added, I won't be using this product. I'll use "A Better Finder Rename" to give my images the names I want them to have.

ImageIngester Pro "ingests" images -- transfers them from your camera or card to your computer -- the right way: Two copies are made, typically to different drives; Adobe DNG Converter is optionally run on raw files so the primary copy is a DNG; files are given unique names; modifcation dates (even for DNGs) are reset to the date on the card; JPEGs are verified by reading and decompressing them; and the primary images are kept in a tree organized by date, year/date, or year/month/date (your choice).

ImageIngesterPro and ImageIngester are now a single app called ImageIngesterPro, with a Switch Mode menu item on the ImageIngesterPro menu that switches between them. If you haven't bought a license for ImageIngesterPro and entered the registration information, ImageIngesterPro runs in trial mode for up to 25 ingestions. You can switch freely between ImageIngester and ImageIngesterPro while in trial mode; ingestions count towards your trial only when you ingest in ImageIngesterPro mode.

When running in ImageIngester mode, you can try out the Metadata panel, but metadata templates are static, which means that they can't contain macros. You can try out the Multi-Camera Shoot feature, but you can't sync files or re-ingest. You can view the Database panel, but you can modify the database.
