Apple gives Mac users a very handy media browser in iLife apps. For example, it lets you drag and drop photos or movie clips from iPhoto into iMovie.
Or, drag and drop music from iTunes into iMovie or iPhoto or iWeb or Garageband. Wouldn’t it be cool to have that same kind of photo, music, and movie browser so you could drag and drop files into other apps on your Mac. It’d be cooler if it was free.
Drag And Drop Stuff
Just between you and me, I don’t think Apple does a good job teaching us about all the tips and tricks in Mac apps. There’s a lot more drag and drop opportunity than meets the eye.
iMedia Browser does just that. It’s a browser for media.
You can use it in other Mac apps.
Click on one of the media tabs—Photos (from iPhoto), Audio (from iTunes), Movies, and Safari bookmarks—then navigate to the photo or song or movie clip you want.
Then drag and drop it where you need it to go.
Dig through the files to the one you want, drag and drop it. The process works the same way for each tab.
iMedia Browser is drag and drop simple.
Drag photos to the desktop. Drag them into Mac graphic apps to resize, crop, or enhance.
The process works in reverse, too.
Just as you drag and drop a photo or song or movie clip to copy it to another Mac app or the Finder, you can also drag and drop back into iMedia Browser to be stored in the respective media Library.
For photos, iMedia Browser digs into Aperture and iPhoto.
For Music, it tracks files in iTunes, Garageband, and anything in the Music folder.
For Movies, it checks the iTunes and iPhoto libraries, and the Movies folder. Not bad for free, huh?
iMedia Browser makes it easier and faster to dig through your photos, songs, movies, and bookmarks from a single app. If you move photos, songs, movies, and links around, this is a must-have Mac app.
