Deals: Twenty Pct. Off Photo Mechanic March 10 Share This on LinkedIn   Share This on Google   Tweet This   Forward This

During the week of March 10, Camera Bits will offer Photo Mechanic, its $150 speedy ingesting software favored by press photographers, at discount prices. But to get 20 percent off during the "Speed Sale," you'll have to order on Monday. The discount drops five percent each day until Thursday, when it's just five percent.

We use Photo Mechanics every shoot. It's the quickest way we have to scan through our new images to see if we want to work on one in Photoshop or Optics Pro, or a batch of them in Lightroom.

We don't use it to ingest the image files because we rolled our own software to do that. But we do use it to see the set, examine individual images, look at a set sequentially and even run a slide show.

You can do much more than that, though (which is why we never actually reviewed the product), especially when it comes to tagging images and making small edits like crops.

So this sale is good news and worth putting on your calendar.
