Photonium Access is a new macOS menubar widget for accessing your Photos library

Minder Softworks has released Photonium Access is a menubar widget for macOS that allows users to access their Photos library. 

It was designed to solve a problem some folks have: getting photos out of Photos and into other applications. While Photos has built-in sharing ability for email and common social media platforms, using photos stored in Photos with other applications is an involved process. 

Traditionally, users who have their photos organized in Photos can’t drag from the app directly into other applications. Instead, they have to save images from Photos to their desktop or other folder, switch applications, then import their files. This then leaves the extra image files on their desktop or in another folder, which must then be deleted. 

Photonium Access allows instant access to the Photos library from the menubar. Users simply click Photonium Access’ icon in the menubar to reveal the images and movies that are saved in Photos. They can view by album and adjust the size of the thumbnail. Once the desired image is located, the user can drag and drop it into any app that supports drag-and-drop.

Photonium Access is available at the introductory price of $1.99. A demo version is available.
