Photo Mechanic 4.6.8 public beta 3 now available  
Tuesday, August 30, 2011 | by Rob Galbraith
Camera Bits has posted the third public beta of the next release of its pro photo browser Photo Mechanic. Version 4.6.8 public beta 3 for Mac corrects incompatibilities introduced by Mac OS X Lion, while both Mac and Windows versions add support for RAW files captured with the Olympus E-PL2, Panasonic DMC-GF2 and DMC-GH2 and fix a handful of minor bugs.

Follow one of the direct links below to download:
A complete list of the changes in v4.6.8 public beta 3, relative to v4.6.7, is below.

Version 4.6.8

* (Mac) Updated the slideshow and live slideshow to work with Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion).  Computers still running Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger) will need a special "legacy" build that uses the old slideshow ( has links to both versions).  HINT: To move the slideshow to a different monitor, temporarily use the 'F' key to toggle between full screen and window mode, drag the slideshow window to a different monitor, and then resume to full screen with 'F' key.
* Added support for RAW ORF files from the Olympus E-PL2, DMC-GF2, and DMC-GH2.
* Fixed {frame} and {frame4} variables for JPEG and NEF files saved from Capture NX2.
* When uploading, the cached upload images (not your originals) are deleted when their image processing is complete.  Upload images are also deleted if the upload is terminated.
* (Win) Autoplay will now launch Photo Mechanic and if configured to ingest, PM will display the ingest dialog.
* Fixed an issue with Ingest where the {seqn} value would be incremented when using a local IPTC Stationery Pad that didn't contain the {seqn} variable (but the global IPTC Stationery Pad did).
* The {seqn} value is only incremented by one when saving from Preview window.
* Fixed an issue that would cause improperly formatted but otherwise valid GPS coordinates to be discarded.
* Fixed an issue with expanding extremely large {variable} lookups.
* (Mac) Fixed an issue in the Preview window that would cause the user's choice of layout to be disregarded.
* (Mac) Fixed an issue with launching classic (Rosetta) Photoshop droplets.
* PEF files now treated properly as TIFF-based RAW.
* Enabled cropping feature for RAW Sony formats ARW, SR2, and SRF.
