SnipTag - A MAC Helper App for Genealogists

I received this information from SnipTag via email yesterday:


SnipTag is a new Mac app for genealogists and photo archivists. The app is named after its two powerful tools - one for scanned photos, and one for digital photos.

Snip is a powerful batch-cropping utility to speed up photo scanning. Scan multiple photos at a time in high resolution, in JPG, TIFF or PNG formats, with any DSLR or mirrorless camera, scanner or phone. Batch-import all scans into the app, and it auto-crops them without compression. Watch 30-sec demo.

Tag lets you add visible captions and invisible metadata to multiple photos at a time. You can type or dictate the descriptions; edit file names, date created, location, descriptions, keywords and more than 20 other IPTC metadata fields. It's really easy to use.

Full details can be found on the SnipTag website and the Mac App Store page. There are no such two-in-one apps available for Windows, although a combination of 2-3 PC apps will allow you to replicate most (not all) of SnipTag's features.

Here is an example:

Here is a short video showing how to batch crop a page of photos:
