New Photography Software for Mac Users

PC versus Mac - there is a debate between the users. I am personally a PC user and although I have been tempted by the dark side (Mac people are pushers!), I remain a loyal PC user. A large part of this has to do with the software I use for my photography work is either already bought or not available for Mac. One program that I use is BreezeBrowser for navigating my photo collection and for initial editing after a shoot. There has never been a version of this software for Mac, until now, a friend of mine Bhupendra has developed a similar program to fill the gap.

I would like to introduce to you a new image download and editing software for Mac -- FirstPass. Written by a photographer, for photographers!

FirstPass is a lightweight and intuitive program to do a "first pass" editing of photos -- download, thumbnail view, view at 100%, rate, filter, rename, delete and more.

Some of the main features of FirstPass:

- Accelerates your digital imaging workflow
- Lightweight, stand-alone image browser
- Allows automatic download from multiple sources to multiple destinations
- Fast and intuitive interface to sort, rate and view images
- Allows image download over the network
- View images in a slideshow
- Supports all RAW file formats

Available at the Mac AppStore for a limited time introductory price -- $9.99!

For more information, please visit Bhupendra will be glad to answer any questions here, or by email


  1. I really appreciate the idea behind this great post.You are doing a fine job.Keep it up.

  2. An interesting alternative to Bridge as a first step before Lightroom. It's unfortunate that the app store does not provide time trail demos - there is little information about the details of FirstPass.

  3. The best thing about all these software is the fact that they make pictures more intense and of better quality. I have a passion for Nature Photography and I have edited best pics with such tools.

  4. Thanks a lot for blogging this, it was unbelieveably informative and helped me tons.
