Full Frame Release Notes
New Fixed
Full Frame 1.6.3 March 17, 2020
  • The app sometimes said that iPhones and iPads were locked when they weren't, especially on macOS Catalina (10.15).
  • The app sometimes did not allow items to be deleted from iPhones and iPads, especially on macOS Catalina (10.15).
  • On macOS Catalina (10.15), scrolling in the thumbnails view could sometimes be slow and stuttery when RAW images were present.
Full Frame 1.6.2 January 4, 2020
  • On macOS Catalina (10.15), Full Frame could crash when it tried to access a memory card. If you connected a memory card before starting Full Frame, then it could crash immediately on startup. Now on Catalina, you must choose “Browse Memory Card” to allow Full Frame to access memory cards it hasn't accessed before. Full Frame will be able to access them automatically afterwards.
  • If a source contained two or more items whose creation dates differed only by subseconds, items could appear out of order or duplicated when sorted by creation date.
  • After ejecting a memory card or other removable storage, its Eject menu item sometimes still appeared.
  • Other minor improvements and bug fixes.
Full Frame 1.6.1 February 8, 2019
  • On macOS Mojave (10.14), if you selected multiple items and dragged them to Finder folders, the desktop, or other drop targets, the app didn’t import them.
Full Frame 1.6 September 18, 2018
  • macOS Mojave (10.14) is now supported, including its new dark mode.
  • Other minor improvements and bug fixes.
Full Frame 1.5 August 6, 2018
  • We’ve made significant improvements to the performance and responsiveness of the slideshow view, especially when viewing RAW images. The app should generally no longer freeze when viewing large RAW files.
  • The maximum zoom level in the slideshow view has been doubled, from 400% to 800%.
  • A keyboard shortcut has been added for selecting the zoom text field in the toolbar: ⌘L
  • Other minor improvements and bug fixes.
Full Frame 1.4.1 May 3, 2018
  • On macOS High Sierra (10.13), scrolling in the thumbnails view could sometimes be slow and stuttery when RAW images were present.
  • The preference to reduce transparency in the main window would not take effect until the app was restarted. This bug was introduced in the recent 1.4 update.
Full Frame 1.4 March 19, 2018
  • Items can now be sorted by creation date, modification date, filename, type, and file size. Some cameras may not support all sorts. If yours doesn’t, then instead of connecting your camera to your Mac, try plugging its memory card into your Mac instead.
  • Full Frame can now notify you when tasks finish. Notifications are shown in your Mac’s Notification Center. You can choose to be always notified, never notified, or notified when Full Frame is inactive or idle (the default).
  • Info windows and the inspector window have been redesigned. Both the Name and Value columns are now left-aligned, and metadata groups can be collapsed and expanded by clicking disclosure triangles.
  • Info windows now remember their last size.
  • Info windows now support tabs in macOS Sierra (10.12) and later. You can view the metadata of many items in a single info window, with each item in its own tab. Option–click the “i” info button on a thumbnail to open its metadata in a new tab instead of a window.
  • In the thumbnails view, the “Get Info” menu command now opens an info window per selected item instead of a single info window with the merged metadata of all selected items. You can open a merged info window with the new “Merge Info” command.
  • You can now choose that nothing should happen when you click thumbnails.
  • Lots of improvements to dark mode.
  • The app better handles the situation where your iPhone or iPad is “locked” and Full Frame can’t access it.
  • Memory cards and other devices can now be ejected from the Sources popup in the toolbar.
  • Slideshow transition animations when using the keyboard are now disabled by default. You can enable them in Full Frame’s preferences window if you’d like.
  • The inspector window keyboard shortcut has changed from I to Option–Command–I since the latter is the usual inspector shortcut in macOS apps.
  • The keyboard shortcuts for the “Deselect All” and “Invert Selection” menu commands have been swapped: Deselect All is now Shift–Command–A, which is the usual Deselect All shortcut in macOS apps, and Invert Selection is now Option–Command–A.
  • The app sometimes showed items from newer iPhones out of order.
  • Items in iPhones and iPads are now sorted correctly. By default they’re sorted by creation date, newest to oldest. You can also change the sort as described above.
  • Newer iPhones may have been very slow to load, especially if they had videos.
  • If you changed the import filename template during import, the remaining items in the import would use the new template. Now, all items in an import will use the template that was set when the import started.
  • Photos could sometimes take a long time to load in the slideshow view.
  • Editing metadata in the inspector window could sometimes crash the app.
Full Frame 1.3.1 June 12, 2017
  • If you reduced window transparency in Full Frame’s preferences or in System Preferences, Full Frame’s window was not drawn correctly in full-screen mode. (OS X Yosemite (10.10) and later)
Full Frame 1.3 May 8, 2017
  • You can now automatically delete items after they’re imported. You can choose to always delete after import or to be asked every time. Starting with this new version, you’ll be asked by default.
  • The scroll bar in the thumbnails view now shows tick marks to indicate where your selected thumbnails are, making it easier to find them. You can disable this feature if you don’t like it. (OS X Yosemite (10.10) and later)
  • Selected thumbnails are now indicated with rectangular outlines instead of the less Mac-like big white checkmarks. You can customize their color.
  • The keyboard shortcut for importing items is now ⌘↩ (Command-Return). The previous shortcut, ↩ (Return), makes it too easy to accidentally delete items now that they can be automatically deleted after import. However, you can still customize this shortcut using the Keyboard panel of your Mac’s System Preferences.
  • When you scroll the thumbnails view by dragging the knob in the scroll bar, the view will now retain its position when you release the knob. Previously, the position might have jumped when you released the knob.
  • Several other improvements have been made to the way the thumbnails view handles scrolling and updating.
  • The Purchase toolbar button will now move to the overflow menu when the window is narrow and you’ve made at least once purchase, instead of remaining in the toolbar.
  • The Purchase panel in the Preferences window has been refreshed.
  • Alerts and other messages have been improved throughout the app.
  • New app icon!
  • Improved the Japanese translation.
  • Other minor improvements and bug fixes.
  • In previous versions of the app, when you used the Import toolbar button, the Import All menu item, or the Import Selected menu item, items that had already been imported were counted against your number of remaining imports. That was unintentional, and we apologize. If you used a previous version of the app, please accept 100 more imports, saves, and deletes free of charge in this new version.
  • The app sometimes reported that some memory cards contain no items or fewer items that they actually do.
  • After deleting items in the thumbnails view, the wrong items may have appeared to have been deleted or selected.
  • Text in thumbnail overlays could sometimes be unnecessarily truncated.
  • High-resolution images in the thumbnails view could very rarely fail to load until you start scrolling.
Full Frame 1.2.1 December 15, 2016
  • The app could crash when connected to a camera that provides files the app does not recognize. This bug was introduced in the recent 1.2 update.
Full Frame 1.2 November 30, 2016
  • Filenames are now shown on thumbnails when you move the mouse over them. Creation dates can also be shown. Buttons for importing, deleting, and getting info are shown as well. You can customize the color of these overlays and the information they show.
  • The toolbar now has a zoom text field.
  • You can customize what happens when you click a thumbnail: select it, view it in the slideshow, get info, or import it.
  • Dark mode. (OS X Yosemite (10.10) and later)
  • Trackpad scrolling performance in the thumbnails view has been improved on macOS Sierra (10.12).
  • The app looks better on non-Retina displays than it did before.
  • The app now properly updates itself when moving from a Retina display to a non-Retina display, and vice versa.
  • You can disable the slideshow animation when moving from one item to the next.
  • If your mouse has a scroll wheel, you can use it to change the zoom level in the slideshow. You can also click the scroll wheel on thumbnails to show them in the slideshow, and you can click the slideshow to return to the thumbnails.
  • You can now reduce transparency in the window title bar without having to reduce transparency for your entire system in System Preferences. (OS X Yosemite (10.10) and later)
  • In the slideshow, you can hold down the mouse button on the back and forward buttons to quickly move through items.
  • Thumbnails for videos now have timelines.
  • Other minor improvements and bug fixes.
  • Filenames for items in memory cards could include gibberish subdirectory names.
  • The previous version of the app did not recognize some types of videos.
  • Undo and redo did not work in info windows and the inspector panel.
  • Moving the mouse over thumbnails in a certain way could cause runaway CPU usage.
  • Loading metadata in info windows and the inspector panel could eventually stop working if you loaded metadata for many items.
  • The app failed to report some metadata for RAW files and videos.
  • On OS X Yosemite (10.10), the app could crash when trying to edit metadata in text fields.
