New Design - New Ways To Work
QPict 7 introduces new ways to organize and work with your media files that will improve the user experience and flexibility. QPict has always been one of the most powerful software available when it comes to functionality and flexibility. Now we have made all that power really easy to use. Previously you could use the powerful Actions window to do what you wanted, now you can also do most things simply by clicking and dragging files. It's just as easy as moving files between folders in the Finder.

Working with QPict 7 is very easy - select a folder or index file you want to work with from the Source List. If you want to see all media files with a specific keyword, click on it in the Organizer List. If you want to assign keywords, categories or other meta data simply drag the thumbnails from the index area onto the items in the organizer list.

The Source List
The Source List is global and contains the same items for all index windows. By selecting volume, folder or index from the source list, the contents of that item will open in the index area. If you want to browse for media files you can just navigate through the source list and select the folder or volume you want to see. The Source List keeps track of recently opened folders and index files. In the bottom part of the Source List you can add your own favorite folders, index files and volumes for quick access.

The Toolbar
The toolbar in QPict 7 has a cleaner design and easy to use buttons for hiding and showing the source list and organizer list. It now also contains a search field for quickly searching for media files.

The Organizer List
The most important addition to QPict 7 is the Organizer List. With the Organizer List you can use drag and drop to apply meta data. You can click on a keyword or any other meta data to only show those media files in the index. You can change the meta data by clicking in the name part and rename it. To add the keyword "Night" to media files you simply select them in the index area and drag them onto "Night". To add a new keyword, drag your media files onto the "Keywords" folder and enter the new keyword. Adding meta data has never been so quick and easy!

There are other really helpful folders in the Organizer List such as the "Kind" folder:

QPict automatically groups all your media files based on their filetype.

The "Name" folder is very clever, it groups all your media files based on their filenames, regardless of filetype. Example: The files "01Car.jpg" "Car-33.pdf" "" all appears in the group "Car".
