PowerPhotos 1.2

Organize your favorite pictures into libraries and find duplicated images.

PowerPhotos is a Mac utility that comes as an alternative to using Mac's Photos app for managing your image collections. Unlike Apple's program, this tool enables you to organize your favorite pictures into libraries, provides you with a quick and simple way to find and delete duplicated images, and so much more.

The application comes with a straightforward interface, supports drag-and-drop actions, and allows you to import photos from various sources (Photos app, iPhoto or Aperture libraries, etc.). You also have access to a built-in help guide that teaches you how to handle the program on your Mac and learn more about its capabilities.

In my testing, I imported several pictures from Photo's records. The app immediately fetched the images and displayed the thumbnail preview for all pictures. The built-in search tool worked perfectly and the duplicate finder operated smoothly, without slowing down the performance of other running programs.

Another important aspect is that the app preserves the metadata of any picture you import.

However, you can easily find cheaper solutions for managing your photo collections on your Mac. So, if you ask me, it doesn't worth buying this utility for your computer.
