Halide lets you catalog thousands of images from different locations on your computer. Then you can apply non-destructive effects and filters, creating versions and preserving the originals. You can do batch operations of filters, resizing, watermarking of many images with one click.
Halide is ideal for film users, as you can batch update EXIF information. It's also ideal for any digital user, as Halide can use third-party RAW codecs to import images from digital cameras old and new.
Halide shows effects/filters in real time, you can even drag over a before/after view, showing the image before and after filters are applied, all in real time.
Halide is not a subscription, it's a one-off purchase without 'cloud sign ins'. Halide is also a 'first class' Windows application, it's not a slow an unreliable port. It's a modern Windows desktop application which uses multiple processor cores and even the GPU in your computer.
