NEW! iSlimPhoto works great with Aperture 3.3 (and later) libraries, now that the new Aperture uses the same Unified Library format as iPhoto!

Mac|Life: "GREAT - Using iSlimPhoto is a single click affair. For showing off photos on the go, iSlimPhoto can put your megapixels on a diet." - 20 Killer Mac Apps Under $20, Mac|Life, June 2011

The Mac® App for shrinking your iPhoto® library by 60-90% while significantly improving iPhoto® performance.

Slim your iPhoto® library to take it with you on your MacBook®, without any visible loss. Keep the BIG library at home on your iMac®, an external drive or a Time Capsule®.

Or, if you will not need all those megapixels anymore, after using the app you can just delete your BIG library and replace it with the slim one to recover 60-90% of your disk space and improve performance significantly, especially on slow systems/big libraries.

iSlimPhoto is a handy Mac® utility that creates a slim version of your BIG iPhoto® library by resizing pictures from their multi-megapixel resolution down to the actual resolution of your Mac's display.

  • No need for all those megapixels
    Take with you only so many pixels as your MacBook® may display.

  • Economies of space: 60-90%
    Save a lot of GBs of HDD/SSD space used by the iPhoto® library.

  • Perfect images, just slim library
    The "Perfect" quality setting makes the slimmed photos indistinguishable on your MacBook® display.

  • Adjustable compression
    You can select a lower quality level to save even more space (losing some image detail).

  • Fast but not resource hog
    iSlimPhoto makes use of all the computing power available, without interfering with your work.

  • Update the slim library
    After the first pass, use iSlimPhoto again to quickly sync new photos and changes from the BIG library to the slim one.

  • Convert RAW files to jpeg and slims them down by 80-95%
    A lot of disk space is wasted by RAW files on laptops - just keep the original RAW at home and take with you a perfect jpeg copy.

    Snow Leopard® and Lion® compatible, and compatible with all iPhoto versions®.

  • What's New
    IMPORTANT: There is a known problem that prevents the application from starting. The crash happens when the iPhoto library (the big one) is in a different location than the default Pictures folder and also in the Pictures folder there is no other iPhoto library.

    To solve this problem, go into the Pictures folder in your home directory and create a folder named iPhoto Library or iPhoto Library.photolibrary or iPhoto Library.bundle.

    What's New:
    Added 2880 x 1800 resolution for the new MacBook® Pro with Retina display 15-inch
    Added "same resolution" option
    Added user control over multiple threads
    Auto image enhancements - for Mountain Lion users (and up)
