[prMac.com] Munich, Germany - Boinx Software announced today that it will join the development team of the iMedia Browser, spearheaded by Karelia Software. Leading independent Mac software publishers teamed up to bring to the platform a standardized way to access media libraries from software including iTunes, iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom and others. Boinx Software engineers contribute bug fixes and new functionality to the community project. The next version of FotoMagico will integrate the iMedia Browser framework, enabling professional photographers to create great presentations using their photos from Aperture, iPhoto and Lightroom seamlessly.
"The iMedia Browser framework demonstrates the spirit in the Mac developer community to drive the Mac platform ahead," says Oliver Breidenbach, co-founder of Boinx Software. The framework benefits users by providing a consistent way to access media files located across several libraries. Because iMedia Browser is easily extensible, it can be easily augmented to support new assets as required, and users of software such as FotoMagico automatically gain the benefits.
"It is great to have Boinx Software on board with this, and I'm looking forward to the contributions from Boinx that will make it even more useful", says Dan Wood of Karelia Software, the founder of the iMedia Browser framework project. "We are excited about the growing acceptance of the project in the Mac developer community and expect great things from the framework in the future."
About the iMedia Browser framework:
The framework is currently used by third-party developers around the world in a number of applications, including Sandvox, Skitch, MemoryMiner, Ubercaster, iStar Composer, Norkross Movie, and Posterino. The iMedia framework is extensible, allowing developers to add new media types or sources of media. The Karelia iMedia Browser is also available as a free standalone utility from their website.
