[prMac.com] Del Mar, California – Macphun Software, a leading photography software developer for Mac OS with over 22 million users worldwide, today is thrilled to announce the release of Lost Photos 2.0, a free Mac app that enables users to re-discover forgotten photos within their email accounts. Originally created by Space Inch, Macphun has secured worldwide publishing rights and now directs development and marketing activities for the software.
Approximately 144.8 billion emails are sent and received every day across the globe, containing a treasure trove of images. Lost Photos securely scans and reveals photos stored in the email messages of most popular IMAP email accounts such as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, iCloud and others. Users then preview and download photos to their Mac for viewing, archiving or sharing. The first 100 photos are free to download, while in-app purchases permit 500 photos ($1.99) and unlimited photos ($2.99) to be downloaded.
“Our chief mission at Macphun is to inspire photography among Mac users around the world” said Paul Muzok, CEO & Founder of Macphun Software. “Lost Photos charmed us with its simplicity and the joy of re-discovering images we’d forgotten about. We think everyone who has ever emailed or received an image will love it,” Muzok continued.
