Ever cried when you lost your iPhone and along with it lost your photos too, well now you can recover those photos by using Photo Rescue.
Photo Rescue is a Mac application that scans through all your backup data to recover all those deleted or lost photos. Every time you connect your iPhone or any other iOS device, it syncs with iTunes and stores a backup, but it doesn’t flash in your head that it has stored things in iTunes backup. Photo Rescue thus scans through all those backed up data and then presents the photos in a easy to view way.
A very simple to use application, it doesn’t require you to do anything other than select the iOS device whose back-up you need it to scan. It does a quick scan and leaves you staring at all those pictures, even the ones you did not want it to rescue, in a neat window and arranged in date format. There are some ground rules however, before you start expecting your lost photos to reappear. First of all you’ll need to have synced your iOS device recently in order for it save a back-up. And secondly, if you’ve selected encrypted backup, then I’m sorry to say that Photo Rescue won’t be able to scan through them.
That’s it, really simple to use and does the job, however this is only for Mac OS X. Hence, Windows users may have to pout their mouth and start shooting mails to the developer asking them to get one done for Windows too. You can visit the official page for this Mac app over here. It’s available for free, but doesn’t let you save those found photos, only view them. If you want to save them, then you’ll have to shell $4.99 from your pockets to buy Photo Rescue.
Will you buy Photo Rescue app for $4.99 or do you know of any other free tools such as this? Do let us know in the comments.
