Retro­batch takes a node-based ap­proach to batch image pro­cess­ing. You add only what’s needed, tweak­ing pa­ram­e­ters in­side the nodes, then check­ing a pre­view of the re­sults be­fore run­ning a workflow.

Nodes are se­lected from 13 dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories in the side­bar in­clud­ing Colour Ad­just­ment, Blur, Meta­data and Wa­ter­mark. There are 62 nodes in to­tal, 15 of which are ex­clu­sive to the Pro ver­sion. (It’s US$29.99, about $42, for the Reg­u­lar ver­sion.)

Work­flows start with nodes from Read Im­ages – which can be sin­gle files, en­tire fold­ers, the cur­rent clip­board, or your Pho­tos li­brary – and end with nodes from Write Im­ages, typ­i­cally a des­ti­na­tion folder.

In be­tween, you can drag and drop (or dou­ble-click to se­lect) pro­cess­ing nodes to con­vert, trans­form, and add ef­fects or wa­ter­marks. You can even ap­ply ma­chine learn­ing rules.

This makes Retro­batch in­cred­i­bly pow­er­ful, yet easy to use. Best of all, tasks like wip­ing sen­si­tive meta­data be­fore shar­ing to so­cial me­dia are per­formed with­out re­com­press­ing image data, so pro­cess­ing is fast and of the high­est cal­i­bre.

The Pro ver­sion pro­vides Ap­pleScript sup­port, and the abil­ity to send pro­cessed im­ages to other apps and cre­ate PDF or lay­ered PSD files from mul­ti­ple im­ages.
