Got photos? Chances are you have tens of thousands of photos stuffed into every crevice and corner of iPhoto. If you’re a semi-serious photographer, thousands more stored in various folders on your Mac.
Managing so many photos can be a problem, even when keywords are used. Wouldn’t it be cool to have a utility that would search for photos based on color, tags, location, rating, size, or even aspect ratio? Here’s one that does.
Deepest, Deeper, Deep
For those who are serious about managing tens of thousands of photos, for Mac users who understand the value of tags and keywords, you’re the target for the Deep app. If there’s another utility quite like Deep, I haven’t found it.
Deep scans photos on your Mac and calculates the range of colors in each image, analyzing pixels and colors. It also gathers meta-data on photo size and aspect ratio.
Add to that Deep’s ability to assign tags and keywords to photos (or, read already assigned keywords) regardless of where they’re stored on your Mac, so there’s no need to rearrange your storage, file, and folder hierarchy to accommodate Deep. It finds and remembers photos and images already on your Mac.
Nothing I’ve found works quite like Deep.
If you’re looking for an image on your Mac or within your photo collection that matches an image or photo, simply drag and drop it onto Deep and it will find those that rank closest in color.
All those color matching capabilities make Deep a unique photo finder or photo browser. It’s not for the masses of Mac iPhoto users, for sure, but definitely a plus for those of us with many tens of thousands of photos store here and there and beyond and a need from time to time to match one photo with another.
