Why we love them
There's a good reason why Photo Mechanic has been an industry standard workflow tool for photojournalists, sports photographers, and wire shooters for over a decade; it's simply the fastest way to ingest files from cards, select the best images from a shoot and upload them to wherever the need to be. And, PhotoShelter members can upload directly from Photo Mechanic into their accounts.
