[prMac.com] Outlook, Washington, USA - Calf Trail Software, LLC is announcing the release of Photon Star 1.0 today. By rating all the pictures in an iPhoto library, a user can enjoy their best photos more. Photon Star is designed to make this process fun and fast by letting customers use a remote control or keyboard to navigate a surprisingly efficient workflow.
Photon Star searches the iPhoto library for pictures that need star ratings. The user may choose an album containing unrated photos, and Photon Star presents the photos in an uncluttered rating interface that may even be made full screen.
The rating process is divided by Photon Star into four stages, one between each of iPhoto's rating levels. During every rating stage the user needs only to decide whether a photo will be held at the current star level or promoted to a higher rating. By keeping the decision focused on the simple question, "Does this picture belong in a higher stage?", Photon Star helps the user concentrate on the photos themselves. The rating process flows smoothly without the distraction of making a complex, 5-way decision for every photo on its own.
Calf Trail aims to help users better enjoy and share their photographs by providing useful apps to help efficiently organize large amounts of photos. This product lineup started with Geotagalog, a straightforward geotagging utility that lets a GPS logger do the hard work of organizing photos based on where they were taken. Now Photon Star adds another important piece by helping a user quickly filter or prioritize their iPhoto library. After rating their library using Photon Star, a user can spend more time with their favorite photos out of all they have taken.
