While part of the CYME team was working on a version of Avalanche for Apple Photos and on our future photo cataloger, PEAKTO, we had the pleasure of a visit from Yannis Calotychos, the creator of iView Media….
iView Media ?
What is it??
An old—really old—software from the ‘90s (or maybe it was 2000?). The time of Nirvana, the Spice Girls and Oasis 😉
https://cyme.io/aperture-lightroom-photo-migration-avalanche/iView Media managed photos and videos and was adopted by both amateur and professional photographers. It was the ideal solution of the time to manage your images.
Powerful import functions, total control over Annotations (IPTC EXIF),multiple Display Modes, batch processing, powerful and intuitive search, and, finally, various exports were on the menu of features of this super cataloger.
This great software was taken over by Microsoft, then sold to PhaseOne…then left to be abandoned.
A software that, like Apple’s Aperture, was one of the leaders in its category, and which is finally forgotten despite its extreme technical quality.
Therefore, it is not surprising that many Avalanche users have contacted us to have CYME support the ability to export images “trapped” in older versions of iView Media to current editing or cataloging software like Lightroom, Capture One ou Luminar…
This summer, a library for reading the raw iView Media format was released in the public domain, and we are happy to announce that soon all versions of Avalanche will be input compatible with iView Media (as they already are with Aperture).
As for Aperture, input only is supported, as these programs are no longer maintained.
Transferring your photos to Capture One, Lightroom or Luminar while keeping the majority of your original album, keywords, people, events and metadata structures will absolutely be possible.
