      Dear Tommy, there is a Mac version of the software with the name Stellar Phoenix Mac Photo Recovery. It can be run on Intel and PowerPC Macs with OS X version 10.4 to the latest 10.8. The interface and the functioning of the tool is as similar as the Windows photo recovery. It is available in demo version to preview all your recovered files, to make actual recovery you need to register for the tool. uMacsoft recovery is good but priced high at $84.95 compared to Stellar Phoenix Mac photo recovery ($29). All the feature of Audio/Video/Photo recovery can be found under Stellar Phoenix too but at ver low price.
