Lost Photos: Find Treasured Photos Buried in Your Email


Despite the prevalence of services such as Dropbox, Flickr and Photo Stream, email is still the most popular way of sending photos to friends and family. It’s something we take for granted, yet many of us don’t tend to save the photos once we’ve seen them in our mail app.

Lost Photos is a rather unique utility that searches through every single email you’ve sent or received and extracts any photos it finds, ready for you to archive and preserve. Does it work? Read on to find out.

I review Lost Photos for Mac OS X on Mac.AppStorm to see if this app can really find some buried photographic treasure in my email archive.
