What is PhotoPhilia?
PhotoPhilia, developed by Pholix, is a photo organizer application which, in essence, sorts and categorizes a user’s pictures in their computer by pulling all kinds of photos, graphics, and image files from various sources – such as local hard disk drives, connected digital cameras, or removable drives such as USB thumb drives or optical discs (CD-ROMs or DVDs). Newer versions of PhotoPhilia now allow the same sort of categorizing and organizational capability for photos to video and audio. PhotoPhilia arranges these items into albums.
PhotoPhilia has excellent support for RAW images and EXIF metadata; there is a wide range of cameras that PhotoPhilia supports for RAW, such as Canon, Nikon, Sony, Minolta, and Fujifilm. On the other hand, its support for EXIF means that users can view and edit information from existing pictures. It also allows the annotation of images – such as placing categories, tags, comments and/or keywords on pictures. The addition of tags allows another dimension of indexing these files easily, as tags and keywords can be searched right from the application itself. It also has rudimentary photo editing functions, such as red-eye remover and cropping tools, image conversion capabilities, and slideshow functions.
