NeoFinder Sample Use - Photographer


As a Photographer, you usually have to deal with a really large amount of precious digital photos in your portfolio, either taken with your digital camera, or maybe even scanned with photo scanners.

You can of course keep all your photos online on an array of very large disks, but even in that case you want to backup your data to prevent losing important photos.

Most applications such as iPhoto for the amateur use, or Aperture and Photoshop for the professional use, only deal with photos available locally. So these will fall short when it comes to dealing with your archive on DVD-ROMs or backup disks. This is where NeoFinder comes in!

Add or edit the IPTC tags of your photos, because any additional textual data will improve the chances of quickly finding the right photo. For that you can either use Aperture, Photoshop, or even Graphic Converter.

Then burn you photos on DVD-ROMs (better twice, to make sure that you don't lose one of them, or that one media will become faulty). Then catalog the DVD with NeoFinder, and from that moment you can have NeoFinder search your photos for you!

These photo and image types are currently recognized by NeoFinder:

JPEG
RAW (.nef, .raf, .orf, .dng, .mrw, .crw, .cr2, .kdc, .dcr, .ptx, .pef, .arw, .srf, and even the .fff files of the Hasselblad family of cameras)
TIFF

EPS
Adobe Illustrator (.ai, both "PDF compatible" and XMP thumbnails)
Maya IFF ("form4" only)

GIF
Targa (.tga).

A list of all supported RAW formats in NeoFinder is here.

With the unique FileCheck feature, you can even make sure that your photo files are still fully readable and unchanged on your backup or archive disks.

And since NeoFinder of course creates thumbnails of lots and lots of photos files, you are even able to see a preview of all results, allowing you to quickly see which are the right files.

NeoFinder will read the entire set of EXIF and IPTC data of every photo for you along with the thumbnail, and display it all in the Inspector window. Of course, you can search for any of these fields in a very unique and detailed way that no other cataloger tool offers.
