Why professional photographers are choosing Select

Start reviewing images almost instantly

Import thousands of RAWs in seconds. No wait times to navigate through your photoshoots. Select is built from the bottom up to save you as much time as possible.

Spend less time second guessing

Eye and focus assessments allow you to quickly identify if your subjects are in or out of focus and if their eyes are open or closed.

See face details faster

The Close-ups panel ensures you can see everyone's faces perfectly – no more time spent zooming and panning for each face. If you do need to zoom, just hit the spacebar to zoom straight to the most important face.

Get alerted to your worst images

Image Assessments allow you to quickly identify the worst images from your shoot and then hide them, meaning you are viewing 20-30% fewer images per shoot.

See why our customers love Select over Photo Mechanic

We asked our customers why they cull with Select over carrying out their image selection with another tool. Here are a few comments they made about Photo Mechanic.

If you use Photo Mechanic to cull, Select is SO much more simple and user friendly. You aren’t bogged down by unnecessary tools or a complicated screen.

I can cull a whole wedding in around an hour which is a no brainer for someone who averages about 3-4 thousand images on a wedding day. Much simpler interface than Photo Mechanic.

The tool has been built and designed with care. It's intuitive and makes sense for how most photographers work. Photo Mechanic, in comparison, feels like a tool that was built for nerds for nerds-only.

It's fast, easy to use, and way nicer than Photo Mechanic.

I tried Photo Mechanic but I found the software slightly confusing. Select is super user friendly and easy to use!
