Photo Mechanic Plus, Build 6880
« on: October 12, 2023, 09:06:10 PM »
Hello Everyone,

We are pleased to announce an update to Photo Mechanic Plus for macOS and Windows.  This new build of Photo Mechanic Plus addresses a number of issues present in the 6856 build.

macOS:
https://www.camerabits.com/download/PhotoMechanicPlusR6880.dmg

Windows:
https://www.camerabits.com/download/PMPlusSetupR6880.msi

On macOS, Photo Mechanic Plus requires Mac OS X 10.10 or higher  If you are using a Mac with macOS 10.9.5 or older, you will need to upgrade to macOS 10.10 or higher to use Photo Mechanic Plus.

NOTE: The system requirements will be changing soon to require macOS 10.15 (Catalina). This is because Apple has changed the notarization toolset and requires macOS 10.15. After October 31, 2023 we can no longer build new releases of Photo Mechanic Plus that support older versions of macOS.

On Windows, Photo Mechanic Plus requires a 64-bit edition of Windows 8 or higher.  If you are using Windows 7, or lower, you will need to upgrade to Windows 8 or higher in order to use Photo Mechanic Plus.
