Media Purveyor - Powerful Digital Image Organizer and Lossless Editor

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Media Purveyor, Nov 3, 2005.

  1. I am the author of Media Purveyor (, a new
    software package with some unique features. Here is a brief list of the
    novel functionality:
    1) Portable Descriptions for ALL file formats. Media Purveyor can store
    information inside files such as JPG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, TGA, BMP, MPG,
    MP3, and WMV. For other files it stores descriptive information in an
    XML file that can be shared in the community.
    2) Descriptive techniques include Keywords, Custom Entry Screens
    (decide exactly what you and your peers wish to store), and Description
    3) Lossless Image Editing for ALL file formats. 30 different lossless
    editing effects can be layered together to produce some nice results.
    This feature will be vastly improved in the very next version to
    feature a stencil system.
    4) In addition to using its own proprietary technology, MP will also
    read and allow you to search using EXIF information, JPEG Comments, PNG
    Key/Values, File Information (from OS), and Image Metrics.

    Media Purveyor also includes many features you would expect of a strong
    image viewer/media management package including:
    1) Browser, Full Screen, and Slideshow modes
    2) Image Histogram
    3) Batch Image Conversion
    4) Batch Renaming
    5) Thumbnail Generation/Image Resizing
    6) Contact Sheet Generation
    7) TWAIN Support
    8) Print Images or Attach them to an e-mail
    9) Background music player
    10) Collections provide a virtual folder organization technique.

    Image Support: 50 formats including JPEG, JPEG2000, Camera RAW, PNG,
    TIFF, TGA, GIF, PCX, and more.

    Support for many audio/video formats including: MPEG, WMV, MP3, WMA and

    System Requirements: Windows ME/XP/2K/NT

    I do not mean to clutter this board with an advertisement but I seek
    feedback from the community.

    Media Purveyor is free.

    What about DNG? Many people hold their raws only as DNG, perhaps
    converting straight from the memory card, and therefore won't use
    products that don't support it.

    (Being a variant of TIFF, I suspect it wouldn't be hard to add it).

  3. What about DNG? Many people hold their raws only as DNG, perhaps
    Version 2.0 does not. Version 2.1 will support DNG. Expect 2.1 to
    release by November 16th with:
    *Expanded Camera RAW Support
    *DNG Support
    *Stencils in the lossles and conventional image editor.
    *Quicktime Support (Windows Media Player formats already support ex.
    MPG, WMV, WMA, MP3, etc)
    *3 additional editing effects
    *Tooltips and more User Inteface improvements

    Thank you so much for calling my attention to this gross oversight!
