publicspace announces that Nifty File Lists is now in public beta testing. Nifty File Lists joins publicspace’s portfolio of photography & media-centric file management utilities, including A Better Finder Rename, A Better Finder Attributes and the “Big Mean Folder Machine”.
Nifty File Lists is a powerful file list creation tool that can save file lists in Comma-Separated Values (CSV) and Tab-Separated Values (TSV) formats for import into MS Excel, Apple Numbers, database, content management and statistics packages. It saves HTML files and interact via copy/paste with spreadsheets and HTML editing tools.
It features a powerful, multi-threaded meta-data extraction system that covers everything from basic file information, such as file name, path, size, creation and modification dates, over Spotlight-accessible meta-data information, including document attributes (e.g. title, authors, contributors, comments, copyright, etc.), photo, video and image attributes (content creation date, camera, lens, exposure, GPS information) to EXIF, GPS, IPTC, ID3 and AV tags.
The product was developed using the latest macOS technologies and application programming interfaces. It features a best-of-class user interface including a clever scheduling system that prioritizes user visible data retrieval to allow for fine-tuning of output even while the output system is still processing.
Nifty File Lists is designed for users managing large file collections and is particularly suited for managing digital photography, music and video collections. Through its Spotlight interface it can also extract meta-information from a wide range of document formats, such as PDF, MS Word, etc.
Nifty File Lists is fully macOS 10.15 Catalina compatible and requires at least macOS 10.14 Mojave. It costs $17.95 (USD). Family, Small Business, Business and Enterprise licensing is also available. Customers may chose to include a “forever upgrade” with their purchase.
