PRESS RELEASE: PMA 2010 to feature demos of best/most relevant photo apps
JACKSON, Mich. – PMA – The Worldwide Community of Imaging Associations announces the PMA Photo App Pavilion at the upcomingPMA 2010 International Convention and Trade Show, February 21-23, 2010, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Southern California.
Hosted by Glyn Evans, editor of the popular blog iPhoneography (www.iphoneography.com), the pavilion will showcase developers of the best and most relevant photo applications for mobile devices. There will be presentations at the top of every hour and plenty of time for attendees to interact with and ask questions of the developers.
Participants will include iPhone photographer Sion Fullana, who will talk each day about how he uses his mobile phone and applications to supplement his professional photography career. Brad Malcolm of Athentech will be presenting the Perfectly Clear application, which is a simple image-enhancing software using algorithms that only correct the areas of the photo needing correction. For instance, if the photo is lit well, Perfectly Clear will not enhance it much at all. When there are problems, however, it works magic.
