Free iMedia Browser for Macs
now including searches of keywords and comments in iPhoto librariesKarelia Software has released version 1.1.3 of the Karelia iMedia Browser, a free utility for Mac OS X that adds the familiar "media browser" experience to just about any application. Version 1.1.3 enhances searching, now including searches of keywords and comments in iPhoto libraries, and fixes an issue with redundant search results from iTunes.
Version 1.1.3 also supports much larger iPhoto libraries, fixing an issue in the previous version where thumbnails would show up blank in some circumstances. Sorting media by file name has been improved to match how Finder sorts numbered files. Version 1.1.3 includes a number of speed-ups and bug fixes thanks to contributions from the iMedia open-source community.
A stand-alone utility, the Karelia iMedia Browser lets users quickly and easily browse and drag photos, music, movies, and bookmarks from their Pictures, Music, and Movies folders and from applications including iPhoto, Aperture, iTunes, GarageBand, and several leading web browsers. In addition to being used in Sandvox, Karelia's award-winning website development application, the iMedia framework is used by a number of developers around the world in a number of well-known third-party applications, including MarsEdit, FotoMagico, Skitch, HoudahGeo, iStar Composer, MemoryMiner, and many more.
Version 1.1.3 can be downloaded from Karelia's website. It is a Universal Binary for PowerPC and Intel architectures, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" or 10.5 "Leopard."
Karelia Software is the California-based company that originally brought you Watson, the ground-breaking Macintosh Web utility, winner of the MacWorld "Eddy" and the Apple Design Award for "Most Innovative Application." Karelia is headed by Dan Wood and Terrence Talbot. We joined forces to create Sandvox when we realized that even for the technically inclined, it was just too painful to get words and pictures on the Web. - Alameda, California - Published on 02/26/09
