Goodbye PixVue

I’ve been using PixVue to edit metadata on my digital photos for a couple of years now. It’s been a good piece of software, all the more remarkable in that it was free. It had a few limitations – it didn’t support the emerging metadata standard of IPTC4XMP, and it didn’t run on Windows Vista. But I thought I’d keep an eye on the web site to see whether Eamonn Coleman, the developer, would be bringing out a new version.
Alas, when I visited the site today, this is what I found. (Note: at the time, there was a notice to say that the software was no longer being developed. The website has now been taken down completely)
Say it isn’t so…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    That’s a real shame – over the last few months I have really become used to having Pixvue and now it’s gone 😦

    Well, you can still use it on Windows XP, but there won’t be a Vista version coming out.
