Marc Rochkind's Apps, Books, and Opinions


Good news about Ingestamatic Version 2.30 for Windows

It's been out for almost two weeks, with no reports of problems. (This version is for Windows only.)

ProofSheet Version 1.72

A tweak to the geometry for the {expand} macro. The width was unnecessarily wide, causing the left and right margins to be ignored.  This is for the Mac only; there is no Windows version of ProofSheet.

New Ingestamatic beta version 2.30

No new features, and works only with Windows 10 during the beta period. It's been rebuilt with the newest version of Visual Studio from Microsoft, and looks much better on Windows 10, although it operates the same. ExifTool has been updated to 10.0.9, and GPSBabel to 1.5.3.

Use with caution, as it's a total rebuild!

You can download the new beta from here.

Mac/Windows Apps

Apps for serious photographers: Exif­Changer, Ingest­amatic, Image­Ingester, Image­Verifier, Proof­Sheet, and Exif­Extreme.

Verifying and Uploading Large Archives of Photos

ZipVerifier and S3BigUpload are for preparing large image archives and uploading them to Amazon S3 and Glacier. Designed for the backup of last resort, to be retrieved only if all other backups have been destroyed. The emphasis is on verifying that the archive is absolutely correct and that the upload, which could take days, completes and is correct.

SmugMugBrowser

The first Chrome App for SmugMug. You can browse galleries, organized by category and subcategory, view thumbnails for a gallery, and view larger images, annotated with EXIF data. As it runs under Chrome, it works on Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, and Chromebooks.

Classic Cameras

The web version of the iOS Classic Cameras app, now free. Features high-resolution photos of over 100 classic cameras, along with reviews, ads, and lots more. A treat for anyone who's ever shot with a classic film camera.

Wright Brothers Photographs

Photographs taken by the Wright Brothers themselves, digitized by the Library of Congress from the original glass plates. Contains 183 photographs with captions. Includes many taken at Kitty Hawk, including early gliding experiments and the first flight.

Programming Chrome Apps

Also available from Amazon.

Expert PHP and MySQL

Bernie's Bar & Girll

My first (and only) novel, which would be a romance, except that the main character is a man. It's got everything: humor, sex, a car chase, a bar fight, a trial, an exposé of Big Oil, and some endearing Creationists.

Published in 2012 and available from Amazon as a $1 eBook.

Articles

Various articles I've written over the years, ranging from mind-numbingly serious to ridiculously silly. Most are in-between.
