Alright. Greg has done what nobody else would do; give OSX 'cut and paste' in the Finder.
And it really works.
Some comments:
• The cut item does not actually disappear as it does in Windows. This is a good thing. It only seems to move once it is pasted thus eliminating the possibility of being forgotten.
• The cut/paste move cannot be undone, neither does it enable Command-X in the Finder. It is under its own CM heading 'FileCutter' at the bottom of the CM and bypasses the Finder's 'copy/paste'. Thus if you hit Command-V you will paste whatever is in the clipboard. You must compete the move with 'paste' from the 'FileCutter' CM. This also seems to be a good thing - you don't mess with what you have stored in your clipboard.
Congratulations Greg. I've been looking for someone to make the cut for 10 years.

Ok, I am a pro photographer looking for an 'ACDSee killer'.
This comment is not comprehensive but a 'first impression' review, so I'm not going to give any stars and I'm going to be brutally critical. Once I've used this more I'll confirm/retract opinions as needed.
1 The developer's site looks like a dog's dinner and makes for a very poor first impression.
2 The name GAPS is awful, as is the logo. Almost anything else would be better. 'PicSort', 'QuickPic', use your imagination. And what the heck is version
3 No rotate command! Not having a rotate feature on a photo program is like not having a 'steer' feature on your car.
4 When I use the Finder to do sorting, I just open Image Capture, rotate and dump. GAPS has to have a far broader feature set to be of any use.
5 The gui is quite messy. Needs work.
6 The program is only 'nag-free shareware' because the developer does not value his product enough to give any purchase incentive. GAPS should be freeware until it is ready for primetime. Asking $20 for this is not going to do it.
7 Enough of the negative. It is quite fast, that's an excellent achievement.
