This software has has 2 very good features I can not laud loudly enough:

1) batch processing
2) HTML export of the EXIF information

The processing buttons in the window are in plain sight, and I like the little "this is what EOM is doing right now" message on the bottom of the window.

But here's the ugliness:

This application bashes it's sticky, dirty Windows heritage right in the face!!

Why in the world is the File menu IN THE WINDOW ???? This is VERBOTEN by the Mac GUI guidelines. (Even open source developers tend to copy Windows without a second thought when porting to Mac OS X.)

ALL MAC OS X MENUS and menu options BELONG IN THE MENUBAR AND **NEVER** IN a Windows-style menu at the top of each individual window. This developer needs to remove the window File menu immediately and put it where it belongs!!

What the developer chooses to do with contextual menus are up to him... AS LONG AS ALL THE CONTEXTUAL MENU ITEMS ARE PRIMARILY IN THE MENU BAR FIRST AND FOREMOST.

Mac users expect things to be in the right Mac place, especially in simple applications. There's no reason I should have had to search for 5-10 minutes just to find the File menu where it wasn't supposed to be. Had it been in the Menu bar, I would have seen much more quickly that the process buttons handily perform every function this application is programmed to do.

Even in a simple application like this one, a Help menu in the Menu Bar is still a good idea, if only to explain how simple the application is or even just what it does and how, without having to open a browser to see a web page.

Feature request:
Drag and drop of photos or files onto the application window would be a nice Mac-like touch, too, by the way.

As an FYI: The reason I tried this application is that I'm really looking for a freeware application to EDIT EXIF information on an image file. There's a project which might differentiate this application from, say, EXIF Viewer, for example.
