Hi all,
Does anyone have any opinions on Photo Mechanic.  If so, how does it fit in your workflow?
Thanks,
Chris

I don't use it but each time I've tested it I've come away with a high opinion of it - and then baulked at the price tag. It's great for browsing and adding metadata, fast and efficient, but costs more than I'm prepared to pay for a browser.

I've been using PhotoMechanic for a few years now and wonder how I survived without it before. For me it's the first step in quickly labeling and sorting images. It is also used for all of my keywording requirements and while maybe not perfect it's the best keywording program I have found so far for my needs.

One feature that has tremendous potential is the IPTC stationary pad and code replacement which allows automatic captioning and keywording. While I think it was designed primarily for sports shooters I use it for everything from sports to music festivals and travel.

Yes, it may be expensive for what it does but I shoot 40,000 photos a year and efficiency is worth every penny.

I've been using happily using PM for a number of years.  I've considered it very worth the money.

Note that I don't use it any more, but that's because I've switched to medium format, and they don't support the Phase I back I'm using.  If they ever add support (I've been trying to get them to do it for six months now...) I'll start using it again.
