What’s Coming Up Next? – MacHouse Introducing fotoSeries for Mac OS X

Mac software fotoSeries

TOKYO (MacHouse) – It’s been a week since we submitted the last software title to Apple‘s Mac App Store. We are obligated to release at least four software titles every month. There’s none so far. What should we do? Actually, we submitted the first software release of the month to Mac App Store 90 minutes ago. This new release is called fotoSeries.

fotoSeries is a Mac desktop application that lets you organize photos with a multi-album viewer. It’s definitely no match to Apple’s iPhoto. Yet, fotoSeries lets you create as many photo albums as you need. It comes with several basic graphic filters such as hue, saturation, brightness, contrast, exposure, gamma, sepia, which you can apply to individual pictures. Save filtered pictures as JPEG, PNG or TIFF images. Use fotoSeries to detect faces on selected photos, which can be saved as PNG images.

Version history

Note: Release dates are ones when updates are announced here, not when updates are actually released at Mac App Store. We make no promise that they will be accepted by iTunes Connect and then released at Mac App Store.

  1. Fix: The application could fail to read a dragged-and-dropped image if the system language is anything other than English.
  2. Deprecated methods and functions are fixed.

1.2.0 (Released on May 17, 2014)

  1. Info toolbar button is redesigned.
  2. Three buttons under the album list are replaced by one segment control.
