On-the-Fly Photo Albums using Metadata from Apple iPhoto and Aperture
Vancouver, Canada – Today Beanheads Consulting Inc., a leader in photo applications for mobile devices, announced the release of Sort Shots – iPad Edition 2.2, the first and only iPad app to utilize EXIF/Metadata keywords/tags with Apple iPhoto and Aperture.
Sort Shots – iPad Edition allows users to import images while retaining previously assigned metadata/EXIF keywords automatically. Users can instantly find and view photos by simply tapping on a word. Additional keywords can be added and exported back to their favorite photo software including Apple iPhoto and Aperture, Adobe(R) Lightroom, Photoshop and Elements, and Microsoft Photo Gallery and Expression Media(R).
Additionally, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), file renaming and a search feature (by tag/keyword or file name) have been added to provide users with a complete photo finding solution. Users can easily import and review full resolution photos and rate, rename and tag their images. Running a slideshow, e-mailing photos or uploading them to a favorite social media site is also a snap.
Keywords/Tags allow users to describe their photos for easy retrieval and can be combined with other criteria to find their photos. Adding additional criteria such as favorite photos, keywords, date and type of media provides instant results to users without having to search through their entire photo library. The full resolution image results can be viewed individually, uploaded or re-sequenced for a slideshow. Sorts and sequences can be saved for quick retrieval.

* EXIF keyword support for Apple iPhoto and Aperture. Ratings from Aperture are also supported.
