CDFinder finds everything on CD

tightly integrated into Leopard

CDFinder, the leading disc cataloging application for Apple Computer, is fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. The program is tightly integrated into the new release of Apples operating system. Even more, CDFinder now offers a direct link into Google Earth to quickly display the GPS location contained in geotags of photos - interesting for photographers, but also for architects, scientists, and even sportsmen who need to know where a photo was taken.

In addition, the developer team has integrated a Google Earth link as a new feature: CDFinder can show the exact position of where a photo was taken, if the photo file contains GPS data. It is not necessary to keep the original file of the photograph online, as CDFinder stores the GPS information in its database. This is a great feature for landscape photographers, architects, engineers and others, who like or even must have a geographical reference with their photos.

Being one of the first cataloging tools for the Macintosh in the market, CDFinder today is the most powerful cataloging software available for Macs. Launched in 1995 it has evolved to a cross platform application that also easily integrates in networks, and offers superior workflow integration. CDFinder reads and catalogues text files, photo-data, audio-tracks, and many other file formats from various memory devices.

A typical Mac application, CDFinder is very easy to use. Useful features like auto cataloging and a powerful and fast search engine, which also includes a connection to Apples Spotlight search, make it a powerful part of any workflow. CDFinder records more than just standard data: It reads metadata of various picture formats, as well as metadata of MP3 and AAC audio files, and adds title, year, and genre to audio CDs. Even the content of zip and other archive types are added to the catalogue.

System Requirements:

CDFinder for Macintosh is a Universal Binary and works with PowerPC and Intel-Macs. A Windows version is available as well, which is compatible to Windows 2000, XP, 2003 Server and Vista. CDFinder is shareware.

Pricing and Availability:

The demo version is unlimited in time, but restricted to 25 catalogues. A single license is 29 Euro / 39 USD. Multiple licenses for business or network use are priced depending on the number of clients and features required.

The quality and ease of use has persuaded more than 18.000 private users in 68 countries, as well as small and large businesses all over the world. The list of CDFinder pro users also includes NASA, the New York Times, VW, and IKEA. For Windows users, a Windows version of CDFinder is available.
