Apple’s Finder application is great for managing all sorts of files, but when dealing with media content, being able to quickly preview the data will greatly reduce the processing time.
NeoFinder is a macOS application designed to help you manage your media collections in a more intuitive and efficient manner.
Scan and catalog the media content from various volumes
Right off the bat, you must decide which volumes or folders should be indexed and NeoFinder will automatically generate a new catalog for each new location.
Via the NeoFinder Cataloging Settings window allows you to decide which type of files should retain the metadata info, specify the archives that should be indexed (disk images, ZIP, Stuffit, RAR, or TAR archives), or the elements to be ignored (invisible items, alias files, package contents, or Finder labels).
Browse your media catalogs or take advantage of the powerful search capabilities
In the NeoFinder main window you can navigate your catalogs in icon, list or columns mode: simply select one of the included file, and the app displays the thumbnail if available, all the detected metadata, and details about the current catalog. In addition, you can visualize geotagged images on a map, or assign geographic info to your photo.
Moreover, you can choose to browse the included data via smart folders: the app comes with predefined smart folders but also allows you to create your own by defining specific sorting rules.
Streamlined cataloger for large media collections
The same workflow is used to help you find specific files: you get to define the search location, the file kind, take into account the file name, duration, path, tags, creation or modification date, and much more.
NeoFinder can be used to scan your entire media collection, even if it is stored on multiple volumes. Since the app is able to detect the embedded metadata, it will prove to be a great tool for sorting or finding media content.
