A New Fun, Fast and Easy Way to Organize, Edit and Share Digital Photos Is Now Available
MADISON, Wis., Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Media Software, a leading provider of creative editing software applications, today unveiled a new way to edit and share photos with a product called Photo Go(TM) software. The new image editing and management software provides a fun, fast and easy way to organize, edit and share digital photos for people who are looking for an all-in-one solution to manage their growing image collection.
"With ever-expanding digital lifestyles, and increasing use of digital cameras and cell phones for capturing still images, more and more people are looking for an efficient and cost-effective way to manage their growing collection of digital images," says Dave Chaimson, VP Marketing for Sony Media Software. "Whether it's simple fixes, photo printing, or uploading and sharing, our new program provides a very easy way for experienced photo editors as well as people who have never used photo management software to get started right away. This is a great new product that will not only enhance the holiday season for many people, but also provide them with a way to get even more enjoyment out of their digital images for years to come."
Photo Go software lets users instantly import photos from a digital camera or computer, and then displays them in the interface so users can browse, rotate, straighten and crop photos with built-in, easy-to-use editing tools. Photo Go tools also let users adjust color, brightness and contrast, and remove red eye. Extensive management tools include the ability to sort photos by date, month and rating, as well as being able to create customized views and searches.
When finished editing, users can share their images in a slideshow, print them using their own digital photo printer, email photos to family and friends, or upload them directly to Sony ImageStation(TM) for quick delivery of high-quality prints and other personalized gifts. This new consumer photo editing software enables quick searching for pictures using tags, titles, and other keywords.
