Use “Save as Copy” feature to quickly create similar albums

Another new useful feature is the Save as Copy for albums. It's a great time save for users creating multiple albums. You can quickly create all your albums, without configuring them from scratch.

An EXIF data reader for pictures

The latest DJ-MediaTools update comes with an EXIF feature. Extensions users can define which info to show for images and in what order.

EXIF ( Exchangeable image file format) is a modern standard used in digital photos, giving the possibility to save metadata information. EXIF metadata gives you easy access to the most essential information about images.

Using this option results in the appearance of a link in the left corner of the image, which displays the data in the popup window.
