Update on 30 Sept 2015:  OS X 10.11 "El Capitan" is now supported See the post in the Announcements section for more details or discussion. http://forums.camerabits.com/index.php?topic=10004.0

(Cross-posted from Announcements)

Hello everyone,

Important Alert for Mac users: Regarding the newly-released OS X El Capitan Beta: Photo Mechanic has not yet been fully tested or certified on OS X El Capitan Beta, and we can not offer support for that operating system at this time.  If you do update your OS, you do so at your own risk. We strongly suggest not updating your main work computer to a new OS if you have looming deadlines. Repeat, if you run Photo Mechanic on OS X El Capitan Beta, we will not be able to offer support with any Photo Mechanic issues you may run into. This will, of course, change as El Capitan moves towards full public release. We do NOT have a date for when El Capitan will be supported, because we do not yet know what that will entail. 

Having said that, if you do happen to install El Capitan on a test computer and try out Photo Mechanic Version 5 on that for non-critical tasks, we are interested in hearing about your experience in the comments below.  :)

-Mick

I work with PM on El Capitan (BETA 5 on Macbook 15" retina mid 2012) and no problems at all, ingest (with Lexar USB 3) works fast, selection and FTP also works without any problems. Editing photo by sending it to photoshop CC 2015 also without any problems...

Kevin,

We always suggest waiting for at least two point releases before upgrading any OS.  To my knowledge we have done no further testing.  I'll check with the QA guys.

Not too much worry there, we're just upgrading to Yosemite on production machines at the newspaper. I might get antsy to upgrade on my personal machines though!  8)

Just one thing: When I drop any images from PM into an email, only the first photo is shown. The others are only visible as icon, and NOT usable by the client/receiver of the mail. No problem if I use the finder.

Is there some reason why you're not using the "Send Photos via Email" function from within Photo Mechanic instead of drag and drop?

I saw the same behavior today under El Capitan when I dragged 8 images into an email I was composing, only the first one showed up. The remaining images had icons, but were "empty."

What happens if you drag from PM to the Finder (a folder)?  Do all of the files copy/move to the destination?

Yes, everything correct when copying to Finder.

Sounds like a problem in Mac OS X 10.11's Mail application.  PM is simply delivering a list of paths to the files in the drag object.  It doesn't do anything different for the Finder vs. the Mail application.

Have you looked through its preferences to see if there is a setting on how it deals with inline images/attachments?
