Ever happened to you that you were looking for a photo you received a long time ago but do not remember if it was received by Messenger or Mail or some other application?

Each application stores their attachments (photos) in different location and mostly they do not offer an easy way of browsing them. You have to look in the application's history and that's a real pain.

And what about an external disk full of photos with strange filenames and what's worse: in one directory without any hierarchy?

This is where PhotoMiner helps.

PhotoMiner scans your directories for photographs. Just select a directory or drop it to the application window or dock icon and it will scan it for pictures. It displays them in chronological order based on date taken from picture's EXIF data or from file creation time when EXIF is not available.

Nice app

I set this up to scan the directory containing photos from Messages. A couple of things would make this 5 stars. Although you can save your searches, I’d love to see them saved or persistent within the app itself. Also, for the less technically inclined, a button to load the directory where Messages attachments are stored would be helpful.

Thanks for the rating and the tips. Primarily this app was created for finding photos, not for storing but this is a good tip to have also that option. I’ll add that in one of the future releases. Also the Messages folder option.
