PowerPhotos 2.0

Brian Webster (tweet):

In PowerPhotos 2.0, it can now see and work with any photos in your iCloud photo library, and will automatically download any photos from iCloud as needed.

[…]

Photos has an export command, but it is fairly limited in what it can provide. PowerPhotos 2.0 has a new, more fully featured export function[…]

[…]

You can now open each library in a separate window in PowerPhotos, allowing for easier comparison between libraries, and dragging and dropping photos/albums between libraries.

[…]

PowerPhotos 2.0 uses a new duplicate comparison algorithm that can find more duplicate photos which are not quite 100% identical, such as scaled down copies of photos, photos that have been resaved in a different format or with different compression, and even photos with minor edits applied to them.

It’s $29.95 or $14.95 for upgrades.

Brian Webster:

Ever since the transition from iPhoto to Photos, I’ve basically just been spinning in place with PowerPhotos to keep compatible with Photos since Apple didn’t provide a good public API on the Mac. Since PhotoKit came to Catalina, I’ve finally been able to actually move forward.

Took a good year and a half or so to do the necessary rewriting to fully take advantage of PhotoKit, and add the new features I wanted. I’m hoping now I have a solid foundation for the future and adding new things to PowerPhotos won’t take so long going forward.
