If you’ve been looking for an alternative to Bridge, On1 is offering up their Perfect Browse software free of charge. Just head over to their website, plug in your name and email, and the download should begin automatically. You’ll then be directed to another page where you can copy your license number (they’ll send it in an email, too).
Perfect Browse’s lightning-fast preview mode lets you quickly sort, cull and edit photos from a shoot. Quickly ditch the bad ones, rate the good ones, and add keywords. When you’re done, filter only the photos you want and send them off to Photoshop, Lightroom, or Aperture with a single click.
On1 claims their Perfect Browse is (much) faster than Bridge, while still showing higher quality preview images. Additionally, it let’s you rate, cull, edit metadata, organize your photos into albums, batch process, all the things you’d want and expect from this type of software.
I can’t personally vouch for this software as I’ve yet to give it a try, but I have grabbed myself a copy and plan on testing it out. If you have any experience with Perfect Browse, please share your opinions with us in the comments below.
The free download is part of a Fstoppers promotion and is only running for a limited amount of time, so act quick if you’re interested.
