Picmeta Systems has announced version 3.9 of its Picture Information Extractor (PIE) which adds full support for RAW files and enhanced Makernote information. PIE now can handle RAW files of almost any camera. It can extract metadata (EXIF), generate thumbnails, and display RAW images in the viewer. Reading of proprietary Makernote data is improved and includes JPG and RAW files from Canon, Fujifilm, Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Sigma, Panasonic, Pentax and Sony.
PIE is a picture browser and viewer dedicated to the digital photography. It extracts metadata (EXIF) from digital photos and makes it available in a convenient interface. Based on this data PIE automates common tasks like file transfer and rename. Renaming is keyed to the date and time as well as other photo information, controlled by a filename mask which can be customized easily. Photos taken in portrait mode can automatically be rotated (lossless). With the latest update, pictures of many different cameras can profoundly be reviewed using one single tool.
Other products of Picmeta Systems are PrintStation, a tool for fast generating of photo albums and documentations, and PIE Studio, which combines the metadata features of PIE with the print features of PrintStation.
