piQtility is in particular a photo management program for all people involved in preparing web content, catalogs, product brochures, etc.
With piQtility you can easily manage photos, for example: creating a watermark, adjusting the size, sorting, adding
subtle effects such as rounded corners, color layers, color gradients, transparent frames...
In addition: apply photo filters, convert images or rename them all from a user-oriented interface.
If you keep your pictures in Apple Photos® you can batch upload them and add immediately some significant meta data to them. Info where you can search on in Apple Photos®.
You can apply all this one by one as you browse through your photos, but the main strength of piQtility is to apply
it batch wise!
Settings can be stored in presets, which makes it very easy to reuse.
In particular useful if you need to add new photos to your product catalog, or your webshop, and you want to keep the same look and feel of the already present pictures.
