RL Development has released QPict Digital Asset Manager 7.

QPict 7 is a major update to the tool for viewing, organising, searching and batch-processing media files. The developers claim over 50 new features in the updated application, which is used by newspaper publishers, scientists and other professionals.

The Universal binary application introduces easy-to-manage ways to make organising media files more efficient: metadata can be added and modified using drag-and-drop, for example.

Additional new features include: integrated toolbar search, extended support for Raw files, extended media format support, 16-bit Raw image processing and automatic detection of corrupt media files.

QPict 7 is available now and costs $35 for a standard version. The company is offering QPict Professional at a $100 discount ($99, not $199) until 30 November.
