It's easy enough to copy—ingest—photos from your camera, card, or phone to your computer: Just mount the camera or card as a drive and copy them, or use whatever came with your computer, such as Image Capture on the Mac.

But all that gives you is a copy. Ingestion is a great opportunity to do more, before it's too late:

While you can do some of this later, it's best if you do it during ingestion. For example, you want the caption and the geotagging with the image, not just in Lightroom's or Aperture's database. And the sooner you get a backup, the better.

I've been developing ImageIngester, the most advanced ingestion app, for over six years, and I've learned a lot about how photographers want to do ingestion. But over those years ImageIngester has gotten overly complicated: too many setup panels and presets, too many rarely-used features, and too much required training to use all those features. Now I've come up with a much simpler, yet in many ways more powerful, ingester called Ingestamatic.

Ingestamatic has three huge advantages over ImageIngester:

Ingestamatic is just plain more fun to use!

I've prepared a detailed chart comparing ImageIngester and Ingestamatic feature-by-feature.

I used to call myself Rochkind Development, Basepath Associates, and a few other high-minded names, but my long-time customers know it's just me. And that's who you get if you need support.
