Looking at the metadata for a single image can be helpful, but sometimes you need to get a more macro-level view of your work. Enter PhotoStatistica, a new macOS app that parses through the EXIF data of your photos and breaks it down into infographics and statistical analyses.

The app is developed by Bristol Bay Code Factory and is designed to offer a more visual representation of how you shoot. This information can be used to not only improve your photography and better know what settings you might need to gravitate towards (or avoid), but to also guide you in purchasing future gear. If you find out you tend to shoot around 135mm with your long-range kit lens, it might be worth picking up a 135mm prime; if you tend to shoot at high ISO ratings, maybe you should prioritize low-light capabilities with your next camera or pick up an F1.8 or F1.4 lens.

PhotoStatistica supports JPEGs, TIFFs, DNGs and most proprietary Raw formats. It can sort through nested directories and seek out images or directly look through Capture One Pro libraries or Apple’s Photos app libraries. Once PhotoStatistica sorts through the EXIF data of the images you’ve selected, you can use the options at the top of the app to visualize the results using bar, pie and pivot charts. You can even export all of the data in CSV format for save the current EXIF set for analyzing at a later date.

PhotoStatistica is currently available to purchase in the macOS App Store for $2.99 / £2.99 / €3.49.
