What's New

[Major New Release] MemoryMiner 2.0 Now Available:

MemoryMiner 2.0 has now been released. It represents a tremendous leap forward in terms of functionality, performance and overall polish. It is a paid upgrade which costs US $20. MemoryMiner requires Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or higher. It works even better in OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) but does not work at all in OS X 10.4 (Tiger).

[Important] If you are still using OS 10.4, please do not download and install this update.

The best way to see what's new is to view the demo video on the newly renovated MemoryMiner web site at http://www.memoryminer.com.

Among the many new features are:

  • Interactive Ken Burns style pan and zoom is available through a button that appears on every selection marker. Users can step inside a photo through the markers placed on photos. These markers can highlight a person or an object in the photo.
  • Gorgeous new Maplines view that presents a single, chronological line overlaid on top of a Google Maps view. The line connects geographical marker points corresponding to all the distinct places where a person has been captured in a photo library. Clicking on a marker displays an overlay with a Coverflow style view that focuses on just the specific area of a photo where a person exists.]
  • Create ordered collections which can be published to the web via the totally revamped MemoryMiner web viewer. The data is published as a Geo/Media RSS feed. Collections can also be published as Flickr sets. In both cases, changes made on the desktop can be efficiently updated to the web viewer, or to Flickr with only what was changed. MemoryMiner RSS feeds are compatible with Cooliris.
  • Read iPhoto faces info. When importing files from iPhoto that have recognized faces, the face marker is converted to a MemoryMiner selection marker, with a new Person record created as needed. Unlike in iPhoto, users can resize the markers as needed to capture more than just the square face area. There's more to a person than just their face.
  • MemoryMiner directly supports Reverse Geocoding. GPS data embedded in digital photos from iPhone or other cameras can be used to automatically create MemoryMiner places.
  • Optionally embed all annotation data directly in the photo files themselves using the open standard Adobe XMP/IPTC format. In addition to the usual title/caption/date/GPS location data, MemoryMiner selection markers with captions/person names are stored as well. This lets users share the results of their annotation work on individual photos with other MemoryMiner users or other XMP-savvy applications such as Lightroom, Aperture, etc.
  • Directly record audio/video annotations using the built-in iSight camera or any other Quicktime compatible device.
  • Full screen annotation using task-specific overlays that can be easily shown/hidden as needed, lets you focus on capturing the story.

As always, if you have any questions, please send email to support@memoryminer.com and a friendly human being will be in touch as soon as possible.
